TREES BY JAKE is always available for emergency tree services. Oklahoma weather has been known to wreak havoc on trees. Heavy rain, wind, and ice can cause extensive damage to trees and can result in entire trees snapping over or being uprooted, broken branches and stems, and hanging limbs that can pose a risk.

Tree emergencies present hazardous situations and if not handled correctly, may result in even further damage to property or personal injury. It is a common misconception that because a tree is already down, it no longer presents a danger. In fact, in the aftermath of a storm, trees are often more dangerous as they may be tangled with other trees or electrical lines or may have fallen onto or through property.

    It takes a skilled tree crew to safely respond to these situations. Over the years, Jake and the crew have responded to multiple ice and wind storms and are fully trained and knowledgeable in the removal of damaged trees from property.  Our most recent storm responses include the July 2020 damaging wind event/storm, the May 2019 Tulsa tornado, the July 2018 F3 tornado in Marshalltown, Iowa, the August 2017 Tulsa tornado, and the July 2016 Tulsa Dericho.

    Emergency tree work requires expert experience, technique, and equipment to safely remove trees and prevent further damage.  Our equipment allows us to respond to emergency tree situations quickly and efficiently.  Typically, storm damage leaves behind a large amount of debris and with our equipment, we are able to load, chip, and haul away in no time.

    Unfortunately, after a natural disaster, there are tree services that attempt to take advantage of the situation left behind by Mother Nature.  When looking for a tree service to respond to an emergency situation, it is important to use a local tree service with an established reputation that you can trust.  At TREES BY JAKE, the client’s trust is highly valued. Our prices remain the same regardless of whether we are responding to an emergency.  We are fully insured for both liability and workers’ compensation and we will be happy to provide a Certificate upon request.

    Though dealing with a tree that has come crashing down onto your property can be extremely stressful, the crew at TREES BY JAKE will be able to take care of it safely and quickly at an affordable rate. After severe weather, it is important to inspect your trees for any damage.  As an ISA Certified Arborist, Jake knows what to look for and can identify any potential issues that may affect the health or safety of a tree.  Jake can discuss a preventative tree maintenance plan that may include tree trimming or tree cabling/bracing to help prevent damage from future storms.

    While no tree is safe from Mother Nature, some trees are more susceptible to severe weather.  Trees with certain conditions, like cracked soil, root rot, clustered canopies, or poor branch structure (such as codominant stems) are more likely to fail in extreme weather.  Trees that are neglected are also more susceptible to extreme weather.  Regular tree maintenance, including trimming, pruning, and tree cabling can help prevent trees from sustaining or causing damage during a storm.  Annual inspection by an ISA Certified Arborist is also recommended.

    How much does tree emergency tree removal cost?

    The price of emergency tree work depends on a variety of factors, including the extent of damage, location, the level of skill required, and the type of equipment that is needed.  It is best to have Jake, a Tulsa Certified Arborist take a look and provide an estimate.

    What steps should I take if I have a tree emergency?

    Do not go near the tree.  Though it may look safe or sturdy, there may be hidden hazards.  If the tree has brought down or is tangled up with electrical wires call the electric company immediately.  Do take pictures in case they are needed for insurance purposes.

    Will my insurance cover emergency tree work?

    In most cases, policy coverage only extends to structures, such as houses, garages, sheds, and sometimes fences.  If a tree falls and there is no actual damage to any structure, the homeowner of the property where the tree fell will likely be responsible for the tree removal and cleanup costs out-of-pocket, though homeowners should consult their individual policy for any coverage limitations.
