The trees in your yard are one
of your greatest assets. Providing flowers in
the spring, shade in the summer, colors in the
fall, and protection in the winter, trees offer
a multitude of benefits. The trees in your yard
need to be cared for properly. This care can
only be provided by people who know and care
about trees, who are educated, licensed, and
experienced. The Shadetree Company can offer
all of these things in a helpful friendly
care is a science and an art that needs to be
completed properly. Pruning the trees in your
yard can make them safer, more beautiful, and
more valuable. It can promote desirable growth,
such as better fruiting or more flowers. It can
change a tree to reduce its size or create a
desired shape. Pruning can help prevent damage
from wind, ice, and snow.
This mature weeping mulberry
exemplifies that pruning is a science
as well as an art.
Climbing trees is something to be
left to the professionals. Owner
Tim Stabile is a licensed arborist in
Rhode Island and has been climbing
trees for over fifteen years.
Getting into this back yard was no
problem thanks to our NiftyLift SD-50 self
propelled lift. This machine
enables us to access trees that would
traditionally require labor intensive
climbing and allows us to remove
dangerous trees safely. In this
photo we are pruning back the ends of
some large white pine trees to help
shape and prevent storm damage.
Whether it's pruning or removals, we
can take care of your trees
safely. This large norway maple
is in decline and has a very weak
crotch at the base of the two main
leaders. It's time to go.
Some trees are dangerous, in
decline, in the wrong spots, or just
too big. When these situations
arise, removal may be the best choice. We can remove trees safely
without damaging their
surroundings. This tree is
surrounded by a stone wall, a fence,
and another tree.
Here we are removing deadwood from
some trees along a private road.
With our NiftyLift we can simply drive
down the road, your driveway, or
around your yard quickly and
easily. Because of its
light weight there's no need to worry
about your lawn or septic
system. It also has four wheel
drive making hills and rough terrain
easy maneuvers as well.
Here's Tim climbing a white oak to
remove deadwood and clear branches too
close to a roof.
Despite the Niftylift's great
abilities, there are still trees it
can't get to. That's ok, we can
still work on them, it's just a little
If and when we need to remove a tree
from your property, we can also remove
the stump by grinding it below
grade. After the wood chips are
removed, the hole can then be filled
with loam, and you'll never know there
used to be a tree!
Stumps in difficult locations are no
problem either thanks to our mini skid
