Livick Tree Service removed an infected ash tree, an oak tree, and a honey locust tree from a homeowner’s property. We were approached for this project by a homeowner who was having a hard time finding a single contractor willing to complete the entire project from start to finish.

Here at Livick Tree Service, we pride ourselves on our customer service. If you have a request and other contractors are not stepping up to the challenge, reach out to us.

Prior to beginning this project, Livick Tree service laid down 4'x8' mats designed to distribute weight for up to 60-ton vehicles. The mats protect your lawn along with any shallow utilities underground. When using these mats, it's nearly impossible to see where the trucks drove in and out. We parked our bucket truck on the mats and removed the top portion of the trees using the bucket truck. The bottom portion of each tree was easily removed from the ground. Each stump was ground using a 115HP John Deere Turbo Diesel stump grinder. We grind down approximately 12-15 inches on each stump—compared to most other tree services grinding down just 6-10 inches. We also took care of the taper surrounding the stump, which is essentially the shallow roots heaving the ground up. We have found many other tree services do not consider this aspect of a stump and we are often called in to fix "volcanoes" because of this.
Once the stumps were ground-down properly, we back-filled each hole with topsoil and then top off with grass-seed and straw. This was actually the homeowner's main challenge in finding a contractor: most contractors were unwilling to clean and fill the holes left behind. After finishing the stumps, we utilized the biggest backpack blowers on the market to ensure the lawn was cleaner than before we arrived. For our cleanup, we also utilize a mini-skid loader on tracks. Most other tree services utilize a full-size skid loader on tires, which will leave big ruts in the yard and can do a great deal of damage. Our mini skid loader is 4-6 times lighter than a full-sized skid loader. Here at Livick Tree Service, we pride ourselves on our customer service.
