Utility Line Clearing

Safety is our #1 Priority. We use dedicated landing zones to ensure that everyone on site is aware of exactly where debris will come down so that they are safe and protected. Through our industry-best practices and dedication to safety, you can finally relax knowing that your overhead lines, streets, and sidewalks are clear and safe from threatening branches and trees.

The experts at CHOP will listen to your needs and help you identify exactly what your trees need to get the results you want. Request an estimate today, and one of our specialists will be in touch with you as soon as possible!

Our Rule: No Debris Left Behind

We’ll leave your landscape looking clean and beautiful, all while keeping your infrastructure safe from potentially hazardous trees and branches. We have the expertise and the tools to efficiently and effectively remove brush debris and pesky tree stumps left behind by downed trees, and we can even ground it up and repurpose it for mulch.

Tree debris can be heavy, sharp, and dangerous. That’s why we are committed to executing our services carefully and safely every time for smooth operation and your peace of mind.


Emergency Storm Response

When an angry storm rips through, even the toughest of trees and tree branches can come down. When a tree comes down on your lines and knocks out your power, you need someone to take care of it immediately, so you can get back to business.

We have an Emergency Storm Response team of highly trained and certified arborists capable of removing even the trickiest of downed branches and trees. When you call, we’ll be there.
