Tree Removal in Arlington, VA & Washington DC Area

Though tree removal should be the last option, it is necessary when a tree is dying, has structural issues, severe rotting, or when it was planted in a poorly chosen location.

When conducting a tree removal, we take the time and care to rope down each piece and gently lower them to the ground. After everything is removed, we blow the area free of all debris, and it’ll be cleaner when we leave than before we arrived.

Stump Removal and Stump Grinding Arlington, VA & Washington, DC

Stump removal will allow you to replant grass, shrubs, and trees, which will make the area aesthetically pleasing. Stumps can also become homes to pesky insects and animals as they decay. Unlike many companies, we remove all the chips and debris (included) as they are acidic and, if left, will make it impossible to grow anything in that area successfully.

Tree Trimming

I am very pleased with our experience with The Heart of Wood. The owner Thomas is knowledgeable and very communicative. We appreciated the fact that he called and offered to squeeze our job in a bit earlier due to a last minute cancellation. Thomas also personally instructed the work crew and surveyed the yard before they started the job.

The team was on-time, efficient, and very neat. Our trees and shrubs look great. The clean up done after trimming was impeccable. The workers even removed some pesky vines that were too high for us to reach and gathered up our leaf piles.

I will definitely call The Heart of Wood for any future tree trimming or removal needs. Their pricing is competitive and their work is first-rate.

Thomas and his crew were wonderful. For starters, the quote was very reasonable. When I had questions, Thomas responded immediately. The crew was on time, was very friendly, and professional. I asked them questions as well and they were very upfront and clear with their answers. They worked quickly and they cleaned up afterwards. I would definitely say that they went above and beyond (while cleaning up they even blew a few leaves for me!). I highly recommend this company.

Very pleased with the service! Efficient and responsive. The work was done quickly and neatly- no mess left behind. One standout point: the written estimate was detailed, so I knew exactly what was going to be done and what each piece of the work would cost. I would hire again without question.

Thomas was able to do a free quote for me very quickly after I called, and was able to fit us in the schedule. He was on-time, and his crew was fast and efficient. We had numerous bushes and trees removed and the yard looks better than ever. We will definitely be calling Thomas again to continue work on our backyard this fall. His prices were very fair considering the speed and quality of the work!

Heart of Wood fixed my yard! After several years of ignoring my trees, we noticed the backyard had become a cave and no grass would grow. Thomas and the Heart of Wood team, trimmed the trees, removed several dead or dying ones and transformed our backyard. Even our 20 year old son came home and said “wow! Its gorgeous! I never knew our yard was so big!” They left it cleaner than it was before. We recommend them highly and without reservations. Thanks Heart of Wood.
