Rathdrum, Idaho Tree Services and Tree Removal

Rathdrum is a city in Kootenai County, Idaho, which was named after Rathdrum in Ireland. Rathdrum is situated at the base of Rathdrum Mountain, which is a part of the Selkirk Mountain Range. It was initially called Westwood in honor of Charles Wesley Wood, one of the town’s founders. It was later called Rathdrum when they learned that another town in the territory already had Westwood for a name.

Why Choose Us

We Offer:

• Tree pruning and trimming, topping, and thinning by certified arborists

Pruning is a horticultural and silvicultural practice that involves the selective removal of certain parts of a tree or plant, such as branchesbuds, or roots. The reasons to prune plants include deadwood removal, shaping (by controlling or directing growth), improving or maintaining health, reducing risk from falling branches, preparing nursery specimens for transplanting, and both harvesting and increasing the yield or quality of flowers and fruits.

Trimming is done to promote healthy tree growth. Lower branches are removed from the trunk to discourage animals from browsing and eating them. Mostly preoccupied with removing green shoots to encourage healthier overall foliage, trimming is done to improve the appearance of the tree.

Topping: the practice of removing whole tops of trees or large branches and/or trunks from the tops of trees, leaving stubs or lateral branches that are too small to assume the role of a terminal leader. Other common names for tree topping include hat-racking, heading, rounding over, and tipping.

Thinning: the selective removal of trees, primarily undertaken to improve the growth rate or health of the remaining trees. Thinning may be done to increase the resistance of the trees to environmental stress such as drought, wildfire, insect infestation, or extreme temperature.

• Safe tree removal

Stump grinding: stump grinding lets you avoid having to dig. After cutting off all the parts of the tree that we can remove by conventional means, a machine is used to grind and shred the stump into mulch and chips.

Stump removal: cutting off the root system, digging the bulk of the stump out, and lifting it away.
