Tree Removal as a Last Resort​

Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary.

Don Taylor Tree Service can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed. For instance, if our customer makes the decision to remove their tree, Don Taylor Tree Service has the skill and equipment to safely and efficiently do so. Whether the whole tree can be cut to fall at once, or if each limb and piece of material must be handled with ropes and pulleys, we are the tree service to handle any tree. In addition, also do all shrub, bush, and hedge removal.

Tree removal is recommended when the tree is:

  • Dead or dying.
  • Considered irreparably hazardous.
  • Causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through tree pruning.
  • Crowding and causing harm to other trees.
  • To be replaced by a more suitable specimen.
  • To be removed to allow for new construction.

For your Spokane & North Idaho Stump Removal:

Hiring a Professional Arborist

Our ISA Certified Arborist is available year round to assess the health of all your trees, shrubs, and hedges. It is vital to address any health issues with your plants before they are damaged beyond repair or disease is spread.

Don Taylor Tree Service has the experience and knowledge to diagnose any issues and will come up with a comprehensive plan to remedy the problem.​

Things to look for if your tree is infected with disease or infested with pests include:

  • Mushroom-type fungi growing at the base of the tree trunk.
  • Although difficult to see, certain adult beetles leave a “D”-shaped exit hole in the bark, roughly 1/8 inch in diameter, when they emerge in June.
  • The canopy of the infested trees begins to thin above the infested portions of the trunk and major branches.
  • Heavily infested trees exhibit canopy die-back, usually starting at the top of the tree and working it’s way back down to the bottom of the tree.
  • Leaking sap down the bark of the tree.
  • Popcorn-like sappy pitch tubes stuck to the bark of the tree.
  • Lesions and/or holes develop on the leaves outside the stem and veins.
  • A sappy/sticky drip may be created, possibly on the leaves, needles, bark, stems, or branches of the tree.
  • Shoots may appear at base of the tree.
  • Numerous holes in the bark indicate an infestation of the tree.
  • Boring dust (similar to sawdust) is present near the tree.
  • Bugs visibly swarming the tree. May be the actual tree pest, or predators of the tree pest feeding on them. For example, Ladybugs feed heavily on aphids in maple trees.

If you suspect any of these issues

If you see or suspect any of these issues, contact us to have one of our ISA Certified Arborist closely inspect your plants to determine the exact cause. We can then determine the best plan of action to restore the health and beauty of your trees or plants and ensure long term health and vitality.

Wind and Storm Damage Cleanup
Highly Trained Tree Professional cutting tree close to house

Don Taylor Tree Service Provides Full Professional Wind and Storm Damage Cleanup​

Here in Spokane and North Idaho, we can get significant wind that seems to come out of nowhere.​ When the storm hits let your trusted Spokane and North Idaho tree specialists take care of any problems that arise. Don’t let the problems get compounded by having someone without expert tree service knowledge handle the storm clean-up. And please don’t attempt to remove the tree yourself. A tree that is already down on a house can be very dangerous. Trees are massive objects that are very heavy! Even a seemingly “small” tree can weigh hundreds if not thousands of pounds. The structure that the tree is laying on is most likely compromised. Making an improper cut on the wrong tree branch could cause the weight of the tree to shift, causing an additional impact load that the structure may not be able to withstand. Meanwhile, you are most likely going to be in a position that could be life threatening!

With Don Taylor Tree Service on the job you can rest easy knowing we are ready to use cranes, ropes, and pulleys to strategically remove the tree in a way that maintains balance and prevents further damage to your property.
