Beckner Tree Service is here to assist you with your tree needs. Tree risk assessment, tree design and structuring, annual pruning, dead limb removal, complete tree removal, and stump removal.
First Steps Getting a Bid This is a 30 minute appointment with an ISA Certified Arborist for $50. We currently offer these appointments every Monday. During this visit there is usually time to address up to 4 trees. The arborist will write a report that includes identifying your tree, height and trunk diameter measurements, and recommended tree work and the price. For a bid, the price will not change if the bid is accepted within two weeks.
Getting a Free Estimate This is done via this online form. To receive a free soft estimate we require photos of the tree(s) (please stand back as far as possible for best perspective), estimated height(s), measurement(s) of the trunk at chest height, and information about access for equipment, power lines or other hazards and specifics on what you want done with the tree. A photo estimate is soft-the actual price of the tree work may vary as photos do not perfectly capture all information needed. Consultations This is a 30 minute appointment with an ISA Certified Arborist specifically to address tree health and safety and may including diagnosing certain tree conditions for $150. These appointments are available every Monday. This visit can cover in-depth assessment of the tree’s physical structure, roots, and soil pH assessment. If a test is needed that we are unable to provide onsite, there may be up to an additional $150 in lab costs to aid in sound diagnosis and treatment options as we ship leaf, borer and/or soil samples to OSU or WSU. This is where Bradley really shines as he gets to tap in to his love of tree biology, teaching others about trees and his wide background of continuing education courses.
Tree Trimming Pruning a tree is short term damage that will provide long term advantages in aesthetics, structural integrity, health, and safety. Pruning is an a mix of art and science that requires an understanding of how every species of tree will react to manipulation. Incorrect pruning can permanent damage a tree and create future hazardous situations. Correctly pruning a tree can cost significantly more than removal or improper pruning. Removing a tree can cost a small fraction compared with the time and equipment required to correctly prune. Your tree is an investment.
Tree Removal There are times that a tree needs to be removed. We are happy to help. There are many options for you. We can just put it on the ground or meticulously clean the entire thing up, including stump grinding so you would never know it was there.
Stump Grinding Stump grinding will remove all the stump to a depth of no less than 8" past original dirt level and 4" past the measured diameter of the base of the root flair. We will call for locates and mark the stump grind area in white as required by state law. We are not responsible for sprinkler systems that may be present or damaged. We will remove and leave the majority of the stump grindings to a separate pile and leave the stump area a raked smooth surface. $250 Minimum.
Storm Damage Cleanup If it is an emergency, please let us know. We will try and get to you as soon as possible.
