We appreciate the importance and beauty of trees, but they can become concerning when they exhibit symptoms of illness such as shedding leaves and branches across your lawn, or pose hazards by interfering with power lines and other safety concerns. In such instances, it becomes necessary to contemplate their removal.
Removing trees safely and minimizing the damage to your lawn involves highly skilled experts using ropes and pulleys to cut and lower the tree safely to the ground in sections. We take every precaution necessary to minimize the impact this has on your property.


When it comes to managing the debris resulting from tree trimming or removal, our service ensures a clean and tidy outcome. With our state-of-the-art equipment and skilled team, we effortlessly transform tree branches, limbs, and other organic debris into small wood chips. These chips not only provide a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative for disposal but also offer various practical uses, such as mulching.

“I have 5 Crape Myrtles trees on my property. They had been neglected for very many years by a previous owner. My desire to take care of them led me to Green Man LLC. When I met Ian, he mentioned being able to teach me how to care for my trees long term. Ian suggested we work on one of our trees together. Over a 2-hour window, I learned about the different tools I could use and the approach on how to prune a Crepe Myrtle correctly. He was patient, extremely well-versed, and most importantly exhibited a massive love for trees. If you have a desire to learn more about your trees or if you simply need someone to take care of them for you, Ian is your guy.“ – Tim W, Charlottesville VA
