Are you in Need of Tree Removal?

The tree will then be carefully removed by our licensed tree cutters. We do not recommend trying to remove a tree yourself since it requires heavy duty equipment, and you can get injured if not removed properly. The skill required to remove a tree means that you should leave the job to a professional only.

When Your Tree is Removed but You Need Stump Grinding

Cutting down a tree is the easy part when compared to removing a tree stump. Since the stump is so heavy, if it has to be removed it must be pulled out with a crane. The easy way to get rid of a stump is to grind it down with a chainsaw to the ground, and cover the remaining stump with soil. If you stump needs to be removed it should be cut until most of the stump is gone and then lifted out by a professional tree cutter. Do not try stump removal by yourself, as there are many ways to do this wrong. You can be injured or left with major property damage. If you are in the Shelton area, try Shelton CT tree service.

Winter Time Tree Cutting is Necessary to Maintain a Healthy Property


If you are in need of tree cutting services during the winter, PCS is available for emergency tree removal 24/7. We understand that snowstorms have a large impact on landscape and tree health, which is why we will be there as soon as possible to help in case there are fallen branches or trees.

It is a great idea to prepare your trees for winter. Getting your trees inspected before the harsh Connecticut winter storms will help your trees to last a healthy life and bare the cold. Even if you take preventative measures with your trees such as: watering, pruning, mulch, etc – there is still a chance that your tree can become weak from the bitter cold. This can make your tree more vulnerable to cracking and disease.

When your trees are healthy, it is one less thing to worry about. You will ensure the safety of your home and family by having your trees inspected or removed if necessary. There are more obvious signs that a tree should be removed and more subtle ones that may not be seen with the eye. A tree can be damaged or diseased on the inside that would be difficult to notice unless you were a professional tree inspector. 
It is necessary to seek professional tree help especially during the winter. When snow starts falling on trees and branches, it weakens them. If your trees are already weak, this makes your trees more likely to fall and cause damage. Contact Precision Cutting Services for a free tree removal estimate, and manage at risk trees before a snowstorm!

Why it is Important to Prepare Your Trees For the Fall in Seymour

Hydrating Your Trees – Making sure that your trees have enough water to endure the cold Fall months in Seymour is important. A good way to get water directly to the roots is to use subsurface watering which uses an injection probe to deliver water 12 inches into the soil. This is a new way to give trees a relief from drought weather for the perfect commercial landscaping.

Fertilization –  Properly fertilizing your trees will help them get through the fall and winter months. This will help replace the nutrients that your tree needs in order to prevent damage, insect infestation and disease.

Knowing When to Plant – The best time to plant new trees is in the Fall. New trees will have a better chance of surviving the colder months than summer months with excessive heat and drought. In the Fall, trees can spread their roots and have a much better chance surviving the weather.

Preparing for the Cold – Since snow and cold temperatures can also damage trees aside from the hot summers, be sure to protect your trees from extreme weather conditions. It is important before the winter to cable, brace and prune your trees. You can do the pruning before Winter starts, since pruning in the Fall will be easier with trees having no leaves.

So if you are looking to take care of your trees before the extreme cold weather hits, you should apply these tips to all of your trees in both Seymour and Monroe. Extra care goes a long way, and you trees will be healthier than ever by the Spring. However, if your trees for some reason do not last through the Fall or Winter months, contact Precision Cutting Services today for tree removal.

Have Your Trees Trimmed and Cut in Hamden Before Extreme Weather

With summer coming to an end, it is time to have trees trimmed before the winter with Hamden Tree Removal. It is important to have trees looked at after the summer weather varying from: extreme, drying heat to hurricanes and thunderstorms. This weakens trees and you may unknowingly be dealing with trees about to fall.  

It is also a good idea to get trees inspected with a reliable tree service before the cold fall and winter weather. Cold weather alone can weaken trees, and it is important to get diseased or dying trees taken care of before the winter season. The winter will make it much more difficult to trim branches and cut down trees. A simple tree cutting in the fall can turn out to require a major emergency tree removal in the winter. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

With heavy snowfall in the winter, it can weigh down tree limbs which can ultimately fall. This can become dangerous for people walking by or it can affect your property. A tree trimming in the Fall before Winter will help to prevent tree limbs from weakening and falling. Aside from tree limbs, the trees on your property should be inspected to make sure they are healthy enough to endure the harsh winter. If they are not healthy, they pose as a hazard and should be taken down immediately. The cost of having a tree taken down will not compare to the cost of the damage done to your property from a tree falling.

So if it’s been awhile that your trees have been inspected, it is important to get them done before the winter. Contact Precision Cutting Services today to book your appointment to get your trees inspected before the winter. The sooner your trees are inspected, the sooner any tree problems can be solved.

Summer Services are Still Available for Shelton CT

The summer is still not over in Shelton CT, and our summer landscaping and tree cutting services are still being offered. We do landscaping and tree cutting throughout all seasons of the year, but it is best to take care of trees and landscaping before the cold fall and winter months. It is much more difficult to maintain landscapes in the winter.

If you see any trees that need attention, now is the time to call Precision Cutting Services. Trees that are leaning or have branches falling should be taken care of right away before bad storm come in the fall or winter. Even if you do not see any tree damage from the outside, it is best to get the examined before well before a big winter storm.

There are many things internally that can be wrong with a tree and should be ruled out before major weather events. Trees can be decaying from the inside and weakening – without you even knowing! 75 percent of trees that fall could have prevented the fall from an annual tree inspection. Trees should especially be inspected after big storms, to ensure that it is safe to go out in your yard.

After consulting with a professional tree cutter, some trees are not able to be saved and need to be cut down. Things like dead or hanging branches can be removed, but when a tree is leaning or is diseased – it most likely needs to be taken down. With everyone’s safety in mind, it is often the best option to remove a tree that is having a problem.

Many tree problems can be prevented from a tree inspection. Not all inspections lead to a tree being taken down. Both healthy and unhealthy tree should be inspected regularly. Tree inspections made by the owner should be made from the ground, and a tree arborist can make the inspections from a ladder. If you can see from the ground that the tree is a hazard keep people, pets and everything around it away from the tree. Then call an arborist for an emergency tree removal. These trees are a liability and can fall at any time.

Emergency Tree Removal in East Haven

Precision Cutting Services recently took care of an emergency tree removal job in East Haven. On July 29th, an accident happened in East Haven where a tree snapped and fell on a 16 year old boy – trapping him underneath. The fire department and the team at Precision Cutting Services helped to free the boy. The boy is currently in critical condition. Unfortunately, accidents like this are rare, but can happen.

Paul Skerritt (owner of Precision Cutting Services) was interviewed by WTNH. We  recommend getting an annual tree inspection to make sure all of your trees are in good health. A tree inspection is also recommended after a storm, to ensure that there are no leaners or hangers. Paul stressed the importance of looking at trees in the summer stating, “Trees that right now don’t have a lot of leaves on them should be something that you might have a professional look at.”

In any emergency tree event, Precision Cutting Services will be there. With 24/7 availability for emergency tree services, we are able to bring your property back to the way it was before.

We provided the video below showing Paul Skerritt speaking. The 16 year old boy has now suffered a partial loss of his kidney, multiple broken bones and a punctured lung. The staff at Precision Cutting Services are hoping the boy has a speedy recovery.
