Tree Removal in Arlington, McLean, Great Falls, Alexandria & DC
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. There are some companies that cut and drop the entire tree (often the lowest bidder) onto your lawn. Although you may pay less upfront, your yard and wallet will get hit hard when you need to re-landscape the bomb-like craters left behind!
After everything is removed, we blow the area free of all debris, and it’ll be cleaner when we leave than before we arrived.
Tree removal is incredibly dangerous work and should only be performed by licensed and insured professionals with many years of experience.
Tree Trimming & Tree Pruning in Arlington, McLean, Great Falls, Alexandria & DC
Tree trimming & tree pruning is the most common maintenance needed to ensure the health and beauty of your trees.
Each trim has the potential to change the growth of a tree; therefore, no branch should be removed without reason. A common reason for tree trimming & pruning is dead branches that need removing to improve the aesthetics and safety of your trees.
Tree trimming & pruning improves light and air penetration to the grass and landscaping below and helps with fungal growth. This also reduces the weight of heavier limbs, preventing damage from wind, snow, and ice-related problems.
Crossed and damaged limbs also need to be removed.
Improper pruning can lead to excessive sucker growth and rot issues that can shorten the life of a tree. It also just looks really bad!
Stump Removal in Arlington, McLean, Great Falls, Alexandria & 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.
We also blow the area free of any debris.
Crane work in Arlington, McLean, Great Falls, Alexandria & DC.
We can handle the job from 40 ton/90ft reach capacity to 165 ton/300ft reach capacity. We work with a local industry leader with over 58 years of crane experience and knowledge to safeguard your home, property, and family.
Trees that grow too close to structures or are over the top of valuable hardscapes or other trees and landscaping, on steep inclines, or are structurally unsound may require a crane.

Thomas and his team were great. Hired them to prune several big trees and remove a dead one. The guys were super nice, worked quickly, and left the yard spotless when they were done. I will definitely use them again.
Tree Removal & Stump Grinding
I had two big trees that needed to be removed, and then the stumps grinded. The Heart of the Wood performed both of these services for me at a price similar to other providers. In addition, the men that did the work were very courteous, did an outstanding job in doing what I wanted, and made sure that the place was very clean after all the work had been done. I would refer The Heart of the Wood to anyone who needed such services.

Tree Removal & Stump Grinding
I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with Heart of Wood. From my first contact with Thomas Spencer, through removing broken/dead tree branches, removing 2 small trees, some huge honeysuckles, and stump removal, they are prompt, professional, efficient, and reasonable. Plus, they clean up nicely when they’re finished.
The estimator was knowledgeable and friendly. The services offered were thoughtful and appropriate. When it comes time to service my trees they will be at the top of my list.
Excellent job at a reasonable price. We finally got around to getting some pruning done. Heart of Wood pruned a very large, very overgrown hedge, some tree branches over our roof, and a few other things. The crew arrived promptly and did exactly what we needed including cleanup. We're very pleased.
Thomas promptly answered my request for a tree trimming quote. On the day of the appointment, he and his crew arrived on time and did a great job cleaning up the various trees in my backyard. They even blew out all the fall leaves and my backyard looks great! I definitely recommend Heart of Wood.
Outstanding experience from the advice and reasonable estimate the day I called, removal of three trees and tree and bush trimming, through meticulous clean up of my and adjoining neighbor's yard with excellent communication throughout. Highly recommend.
