Recently, we've helped homeowners in Beaverton, Milwaukie, Oregon City, and throughout the downtown and greater Portland area find professionals for every type of tree and shrub service out there.
Portland Tree Removal
You might think that only a tree that is diseased or experienced serious damage should be cut down, but some trees may be interfering with the development of other trees, driveways, foundations, or underground wiring. You are right, however, to be reticent about removing a tree. In general, trees are valuable assets to a home, increasing the home's value and providing beautiful landscaping and shade for your lawn. In Portland, the tree removal code is among the more complicated in the nation. Let a contractor find out whether you need to secure a tree removal permit, especially since you should never remove any sizable tree on your own. Tree removal is anything but an exact science, and there is simply no way to predict with 100 percent accuracy how a tree will fall.
Portland Tree Services: Tree Trimming
Nearly every species of tree could use a little trim from time to time. Not only does it keep the tree healthy and promote new growth, but it will shore up the look of your yard. Overgrown trees can be more than eyesores. If the limbs get too close to your home, runoff rainwater can damage to your siding and/or foundation. Many homeowners elect to trim their own trees, but professional tree trimming services have a lot to offer. They can safely and efficiently trim even the tallest of trees, but they will also know exactly where and how to trim. Trust that they know what they're doing. Some homeowners are initially dismayed at how much tree is trimmed by the professionals, only to discover near-immediate signs of new growth. In just a couple weeks, your tree should spring back to life and begin to fill out.

Portland Shrub Service
The most important part of any shrub landscaping is planning the types of shrubs to plant. As a general rule, indigenous shrubs perform best with the least amount of maintenance, though the Pacific Northwest can play a host to any number of shrubs. Along with soil, water, and sun characteristics, you should take a look at growth patterns before you plant any shrub. Shrubs with horizontal growth patterns can become invasive, taking over your yard, and in extreme cases, even overrunning your neighbor's lawn, potentially causing heated arguments and even lawsuits.
Of course, the most famous shrub in Portland also gives the city its nickname. Few areas, indeed, can claim the rose bush as part of its natural shrubbery selection. Although the climate is considered ideal for growing roses, this doesn't mean you can simply plant and ignore roses and expect them to thrive. Whether you need advice about planting shrubs, information about caring for shrubs, or basic shrub trimming services, we can help you find the right professional for the job.
Cost of Portland Tree and Shrub Services
As with lawn services, the cost of tree and shrub service in Portland really depends on whether you're considering one-time service or a more comprehensive, annual contract. You might spend as little as $50 to $100 for one-time service on a small tree, or $1,000 or more for annual tree and shrub service for your entire lawn. Both treatment for tree disease and pest control services (other than termites) are likely to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 to $400. As with any home improvement service, get multiple estimates, but make sure you're comparing apples-to-apples. Ask, for example, if you're having a tree removed, whether the service includes hauling away limbs and debris, and removing the stump. If one bid is substantially lower than the rest, this could be the reason why.
