The right trees placed in the right spaces on your property create an ideal blend of shade, privacy, and visual interest. Rich’s Tree Service brings a depth of knowledge and experience to provide tree planting services in Portland – to develop your landscape today and for years to come.

Large, well-maintained trees create comfort, shade, and beauty, but not all trees are desirable in every Portland landscape. Some tree species have shallow root systems, extreme susceptibility to pests or disease, or other qualities that make them prone to failure. Others drop larger amounts of debris or have invasive properties that make them a poor choice. Saplings and young trees may not maintain their attractive qualities as they mature. For these reasons and more, it is valuable to have deep background knowledge at your disposal when making decisions about the kinds of trees to include in your landscape and the tree care needed for each kind.

  • Ensure that people are out of harm’s way. If a tree or portion thereof has already caused damage to a structure where people are, move them as far away from the danger as possible.

  • Call emergency services if anyone is injured.

  • If safe to do so, take pictures of the damage for your home insurance company. You will want to do this after the tree is gone, as well.

  • Contact your utility companies if you have lost service.

  • Call Rich’s Tree Service. We will dispatch an emergency tree removal crew to your Portland property as quickly as possible. When we arrive, we will assess the situation with you and get to work, helping to secure you against further damage

Cabling is a technique arborists use to protect and improve the structural integrity of damaged trees for our Portland, Oregon clients. Cables are installed in the upper crown of a tree to address structural defects. We primarily use the Cobra cable system, which includes a built-in shock absorber designed to absorb the dynamic forces that occur to trees during inclement weather.

If you have a tree that you think is in danger of falling or breaking, cabling may be the answer.

Rich’s stump removal service for the Portland area usually involves grinding. Stump grinding is a process by which a rotating cutter wheel grinds a stump to a depth of up to 24 inches below ground level depending on the machine utilized, access, and other limiting factors. After we finish, all that’s left of the stump is wood chips mixed with dirt.

As the wood chips produced by stump grinding are not a suitable medium for gardening, they need to be either distributed in a thin layer or removed altogether, which we offer as an additional service for our Portland, Oregon stump removal clients.

The experts at Rich’s Tree Service provide several different options for stump grinding. The best one depends on factors such as accessibility and the size of the stump. Whatever the situation on your property, we have what you need to handle the job.
