From A.W.D. Tree Service and all our employees, we sincerely thank you for your business!
Our tree removal service emphasizes on safety, quality and efficiency. We handle all kinds of removals, including dead trees, storm damage and hazardous removals. Often, tree removals must be performed in confined spaces, near homes, landscape, utility lines, and other sensitive areas. Our team has been trained to handle these type of challenges on complicated job sites. We pride ourselves on not only getting the tree down and out safely, but without damage to any of your property in the process.
When we prune your trees, we believe less is more. Our highly trained technicians pick and choose branches to remove from the tree based on aesthetics, tree health and structural support. We do not follow the "strip branches out to the tip" method better known as "lion tailing". This is an old practice that was phased out decades ago.
Keep up with the tree industry and environmental issues surrounding urban arboriculture.

Find out whether or not your tree has oak wilt
It can be difficult to tell if an oak tree has oak wilt just by looking at it. If you think oak wilt might be causing problems for your tree, you can send in a sample for examination. There is a small fee for this service.
Collect three twigs (about 1/2-inch in diameter and four inches in length) from three different branches with wilting leaves. Be sure these samples still have living wood and leaves. Scratch the sample branch with your fingernail. If the wood under the bark is a light color (white to green), the sample is fresh. If the wood is brown or dark, it is too old to be sampled. Wrap fresh samples in wax paper and keep them cool until you mail them to:

Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis)
What to look for
Infected Ash Trees can be identified by:
- Thinning or deadness in the top third of the tree
- Live branches just below the dead area
- D-shaped exit holes in the bark
- S-shaped grooves under the bark
- Vertical splits in the bark
Anthracnose Disease Info. Anthracnose is a fungal disease that tends to attack plants in the spring when the weather is cool and wet, primarily on leaves and twigs. The fungi overwinter in dead twigs and fallen leaves. Cool, rainy weather creates perfect conditions for the spores to spread.
Leaf Spot Disease
Leaf spots are round blemishes found on the leaves of many species of plants, mostly caused by parasitic fungi or bacteria. A typical spot is "zonal", meaning it has a definite edge and often has a darker border. When lots of spots are present, they can grow together and become a blight or a blotch.
Needle cast disease
Stigmina and Rhizosphaera Needle Cast in Trees. ... If you have seen trees affected by needle cast disease in the area, avoid planting this highly susceptible tree. Instead, consider planting Norway spruce, which is resistant. White spruce and other conifers, like pine and fir, are also susceptible.
