Tree trimming and pruning offer benefits for your trees‘ health, safety, and appearance. Here’s why these practices are essential, especially for trees like the mulberry, ailanthus, and maple:

Tree Health

  • Ensuring tree health: Trimming removes dead, dying, or diseased branches that could fall and cause harm. It also prevents the spread of disease within the tree, emphasizing the importance of maintaining your tree’s health.
  • Improved structure: Pruning helps shape young trees, guiding their growth and preventing structural problems that could weaken them in the future.
  • Enhanced sunlight and airflow: Opening up the canopy, trimming, and pruning allows better light penetration and air circulation, reducing stress on the tree and making it less prone to disease.


  • Storm resilience: Trees with weak or overgrown branches are more susceptible to damage in strong winds or storms. Regular maintenance strengthens them.
  • Property protection: Overhanging branches can risk homes, vehicles, or power lines. Trimming prevents accidents and potential damage.
  • Visibility: Pruning can maintain a clear sightline around driveways or walkways, improving safety for pedestrians and drivers.


  • Visual appeal: Trimming and pruning can give your tree a balanced and attractive shape, complementing your landscape design.
  • Fruit production (if applicable): Strategic pruning in fruit trees encourages healthy growth and improves the quality and quantity of your fruit yield.


While our goal is to preserve trees whenever possible, sometimes tree removal is the safest and most responsible option. Here’s why tree removal might be necessary:

  • Severe Damage: If a tree has sustained significant damage due to storms, pests, or disease, it may be beyond saving and pose a safety risk.
  • Structural Weakness: Trees with internal decay, large cavities, or significant root damage may be unstable and prone to falling.
  • Hazardous Location: Trees growing too close to homes, power lines, or walkways may need to be removed to prevent property damage or safety issues.
  • Space Restrictions: Sometimes, an otherwise healthy tree outgrows its space, competing overly with other trees or landscaping, and removal is the best action.

Why Choose Professional Tree Removal Services

  • Safety: Tree removal, especially for large trees, can be extremely dangerous. Professionals have the equipment, training, and experience to perform the job safely and efficiently.
  • Protection of Your Property: Professional tree services take careful precautions to minimize damage to your surrounding landscape and structures during removal.
  • Complete Service: A reputable tree service will handle the entire process, including felling the tree, removing all debris, and even stump grinding if desired.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that experts handle your tree removal guarantees that the job will be done right.


Stumps might not be as dangerous as their taller predecessors, but they can still be a pain and an eyesore for your property. We offer stump grinding and stump removal services that leave the ground looking like nothing was ever there.


If you need emergency tree service, you can call us day or night. We are open 24 hours, 365 days out of the year. Doesn’t matter how bad the weather.

We can respond on location quickly to assess the situation and devise a plan to save the tree or remove debris as needed.

We hired Owens Tree Service to remove 2 trees in our backyard garden farm. We had a section needing a fence between us and our neighbor's backyard, and the trees made it impossible. The company was great. They came when they said they would, took the trees down and mulched them up in about an hour. They were in and out and did a great job of cleaning up all the debris as they worked. We also got a huge amount of mulch for our garden. We'd definitely hire them again!

Dennis and his team were great. I had contacted a few tree removal companies about removing two Norway Maple trees that were on my property, impeding the installation of a new fence. Dennis from Owen's got in touch with me the same day about the job. He came to the site the same day to look the job over and gave a very reasonable quote. I told him at the time that the backyard where the trees were was my family's fruit and vegetable garden and the workers would have to be careful about not damaging the plants where they were going to work. I also asked for the shredded mulch from the trees. He was happy to comply with both. There was a further complication that  direct access to the street was only possible through my neighbors property so we'd have to be very careful about not causing any damage or mess. Dennis assured me it wouldn't be a problem. Owen's is fully bonded and insured, so I was able to reassure my neighbors in a worst case scenario, any possible problems would be completely covered. There were none. Dennis and his team removed both trees in under an hour, and were very good about not disrupting my food crops, nor my neighbor's property when cleaning and removing all the debris. And, I got a few hundred pounds of mulch which they carried back from the street into my garden and helped me bag it up. Even when I was a pain in the as$ about very specific wants, his team were great at going above and beyond. I highly recommend Owen's Tree Service without any reservation.

Had a tree fall down during a recent storm. Called Dennis, the owner, and he came out right away for an estimate. He was super nice and professional. He gave me a quote and we agreed. The next morning, he brought his entire crew, within 90 minutes my tree was completely removed and yard and sidewalk were spotless. Would highly recommend

Owens did an amazing job professionally removing 18 massive trees on our property in the Bronx, they cleaned up after themselves , Dennis was a pleasure to deal with, honest and professional, highly recommended company.
Highly recommend! They were at my house within an hour of my call. Removed big branches that fell on my garage during storm the night before & fully cleaned up the surrounding area after they were done. Fair pricing and the whole job, which was quite a mess to take care of, was completed in 3 hrs!
Great service! Great customer service! Job well down! We highly recommend! We’d give 10 stars if we could!
