Expert Care. Proven Tree Cutting Service Process. For Properties in Lancaster & York, PA.

When the trees on your property require care or removal, you need a tree cutting service from a local company in Lancaster County that cares about your property and the surrounding areas. As tree professionals near you, we’ll follow a proven process to prune or remove your trees safely, so your yard can look beautiful again.


Shape Up Your Property with Our Tree Service Process

At Doug’s Tree Service, we’ve been helping homeowners and businesses like you get tree service work in the most timely and efficient manner for over 20 years. Following our proven process, we’ll help you maintain healthy, beautiful trees that enhance your property.

If you need tree removal service because your large trees are entangled in power lines or at risk of falling after a severe storm, our crew will work on felling the tree. Typically, within the same week (weather permitting), our team will return to remove the trunk and logs and grind the stump, if necessary.

For tree pruning, our team of tree professionals near Lancaster and York, PA,  will prune the requested trees or shrubs as written and agreed upon. We’ll then clean up the area from brush and debris caused by the pruning, making your property look as if we were never even there (except for your trimmed trees, of course!).

Schedule An Appointment

The first step in our process is for you to reach out for an appointment. Please call our office at (717) 684-6489 or fill out our contact form to request an appointment for an onsite visit to your home or commercial property. In the meantime, please familiarize yourself with our common tree removal and maintenance terminology list.

2

Confirm the Appointment

Our staff will take your information and clarify details about the tree care services you need. We’ll also confirm an appointment time. You do not need to be present at the time of your appointment. However, if you would like to speak with our estimator, we are happy to schedule a time when you can be present to ask questions about removing or trimming your trees or shrubs.

3

The Estimator arrives at your property

A member of our professional staff will visit your home or property to evaluate the work to be completed. Our estimator will determine the size and type of tree, and any possible safety hazards to be aware of before we start your tree trimming process. In some cases, we may ask you to mark which trees you’d like to be included in your estimate for tree cutting services.

4

Review Our Detailed Estimate

When you work with Doug’s Tree Service, we want to be as transparent as possible from the beginning because you deserve peace of mind during the tree-cutting service process. In most cases, we will leave a detailed estimate for tree work to be completed before the estimator leaves. This estimate will include the tree trimming or removal costs and an approximate completion date.

5

Accept Our Tree Care Estimate

Sign and date the white copy of your proposal and send it via email, fax, or mail to our tree services company in Lancaster County. The approximate completion date is dependent on the date of acceptance, so be sure to get your proposal returned to us quickly, so we can get you on the books! After you accept our estimate, we’ll get your job in our queue for scheduling with our tree professionals.

6

Our Crew Completes the Contracted Work

Our tree-cutting crew comes to your home or property to safely remove or prune your trees. The amount of time it takes for our team to complete their work varies, depending on the size of the tree and other related factors. In most cases tree logs are not removed on the initial visit. Stump grinding will also be performed on a subsequent visit, approximately one week later.

7

Final Evaluation by Certified Arborist

Our certified arborist will visit your site to evaluate the work and schedule a time to remove tree logs and perform stump grinding services if required. As tree specialists, we have the right equipment and experience to handle any tree problems you have. Our certified arborists will ensure the work is done completely and that your trees are healthy and vibrant for years of enjoyment.

Log Removal / Stump Grinding

Finally, our crew will remove logs and debris and perform stump grinding services, if required. We pledge to leave your property clean and free of debris. The space where your problem tree once lived will be clear and your freshly pruned trees will remain radiant and stunning. Best of all, getting your trees to look this good didn’t require you to do any hard, physical labor.
