Tree Removal Service
Prolonged drought-like conditions are responsible for an estimated 66 million dead trees in the Houston area alone. Dead trees pose a fire risk and put people and property in danger if they become unstable enough to fall. Most homeowners lack the equipment and training to remove trees without damaging surrounding property. When it comes to tree care, Houston homeowners trust the experts at ABC Home & Commercial Services to diagnose the health of the trees on their property and to safely remove dangerous trees.
Why Tree Removal is Important
ABC’s certified arborists can safely handle the removal of most types of trees from your property. When you notice that a tree on your property is dying, having it assessed for limb removal or total removal can protect your family and your home from potential danger.
Some of the reasons you might want to remove a tree include:
- Serious damage to tree due to a storm or weather-related event
- Roots or branches endanger your roof or foundation
- The height of the tree has grown too close to overhead power lines
- The costs of repeatedly removing dead wood have become more expensive than removing the entire tree
- Your tree drops a large amount of debris in your yard and attracts pests
- An assessment from a tree expert which indicates that 50% or more of the tree is damaged or if over 25% of the trunk shows signs of disease or decay
- A hollow trunk, large dead branches, a leaning tree or a concentration on dead limbs on one side of your tree
Removing a tree is a big decision, and ABC is happy to advise you on whether or not your tree is posing a potential danger to your home or family. Our tree care experts can diagnose and treat any tree conditions or diseases which your tree might be suffering from. If you’d like to avoid removing a tree, we can suggest alternatives if our experts determine the tree is at a low risk of falling.
Our process for tree removal service includes:
- Conducting a thorough site assessment to determine what steps need to be taken to lessen any potential impact to nearby trees, fence lines, landscaping, power lines, cars or sheds.
- Pruning any hanging or dead branches that are likely to fall as the tree is being removed.
- Undercutting and back-cutting the tree in the direction the tree should fall to prevent any potential problems during the removal process.
- Climbing the tree to remove branches from the trunk.
- Cutting the trunk into right-sized pieces for firewood (if you desire), as well as cutting and bundling branches so that they can be put out with your tree waste for disposal.
- Cleaning up your yard of any remaining limbs and branches.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
