Tree Removal

International Society of Arboriculture If you need one or several trees removed from your property for any reason, call the experts at Animas Valley Arborist. We are skilled at cutting down trees of any size, safely falling them away from powerlines, buildings, and other structures. We work with home owners who are modifying their landscape, property developers, construction companies, and municipal organizations to remove trees as requested. Whether the tree is diseased, damaged, overgrown, or simply in the way, we can have the tree removed quickly and will haul away the debris.

Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding DurangoOur arborist company in the Four Corners also provides stump grinding services. Often times, trees are cut down but the stump is left in place. Not only are stumps unsightly, they can get in the way of lawn mowers and other landscaping equipment or inhibit the use of that area to its full potential. Animas Valley Arborist grinds the stump down to 6 inches below ground level, eliminating stubborn root systems in the process. No matter the age and size of the stump, we won’t rest until the stump is out of your way and the roots are extracted.

Insect Treatment

Tree disease treatmentAnimas Valley Arborist also provides insect treatment to remove any type of tree damaging bug. This includes the ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, bagworm, Eastern Tent Caterpillar, fall webworm, gypsy moth, and many others. Insects tend to target trees that are already in poor health or distress. Our first priority is to restore the health of your trees and build up their resistance to insect invasion. The most common method of insect treatment is to spray the trunk and main scaffold limbs with an insecticide, leaving the foliage alone. Multiple treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the infestation and the overall health of the tree.


Tree pruning in the Four CornersWe also offer tree maintenance, including dead leaf and branch removal, shaping, and trimming services. Regular maintenance of your trees will not only keep your landscape looking pristine, it will also maximize the lifespan of your trees. Major problems such as disease and insect intrusion are often avoided with ongoing maintenance as these issues are prevented or detected early. We also work with your bushes and scrubs.
