FALLEN TREE REMOVAL
Unfortunately, sometimes a tree will need to be removed due to disease, location, or damage. Trees that are structurally unsound and weak can pose a safety hazard and easily become completely uprooted or split in half from wind or topple over if the ground is soaked from rain and result in serious damage. Our tree removal company can remove both existing and fallen trees.
TREES BY JAKE has the proper tools and state of the art equipment to properly and safely handle any size tree removal in an efficient manner. Our extensive range of professional equipment includes:
- Grapple trucks capable of lifting logs up to 8,500 pounds.
- Bucket trucks with a reach of up to 75 feet.
- Ditch Witch mini skid steers with a lifting capacity of up to 2,000 pounds.
- A Bandit wood chipper capable of taking logs up to 18 inches in diameter.
- Vermeer stump grinders.
- Multiple tool trucks and trailers.
During a removal, our Tulsa tree removal crew takes steps to ensure that no damage is done to surrounding property, including utilizing mats specifically designed for tree work and tree equipment to minimize impact on lawns and landscaping. Once the tree is down, the brush and logs are either hauled away with one of our grapple trucks or chipped using our Bandit wood chipper. Tree removal can be messy, but the TREES BY JAKE crew will always leave your property in as good as condition, if not better, than when we arrived. After a tree removal, we can also take care of grinding the stump and hauling away the stump chips that are left behind.
Safety is a priority when removing trees. All of our equipment is regularly inspected and maintained and we adhere to all applicable industry standards, including those set by Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Our entire crew also takes place in regular safety meetings. We are also fully insured for both liability and workers’ compensation and will be happy to provide a Certificate upon request.
LARGE TREE REMOVAL TULSA
When it comes to DIY projects around the house, tree removal, especially large tree removal, is one that should be left to the experts. Unfortunately, there are many stories each year of homeowners being injured or killed attempting to remove a large tree on their own. Large tree removals require a very specific set of skills, precision, and knowledge to bring them safely to the ground.
Large tree removals require a high level of expertise, experience, and knowledge and not every tree service is actually qualified or capable of removing large trees. Tree removal is actually very complicated and technical and homeowners should look for a tree service with an ISA Certified Arborist as well as a TCIA Certified Treecare Safety Professional to ensure that proper techniques and safety procedures are used. Knowledge of proper rigging, zip lining, and felling techniques is required. Homeowners should also look for a tree service that works strictly on trees rather than hiring a company that offers tree services as one of its multiple services. Tree services trim and remove trees day in and day out and are experts. Trees that are located near or over homes or other property or trees with codominant (multiple) stems can be particularly challenging due to obstacles involved in bringing them to the ground.
Hiring a professional and qualified tree service ensures that the job is done safely. Professional tree crews know how and where to cut, how to rig the limbs down without causing damage or injury and know how to properly use the tools and equipment required to get the job done. Nearby hazards, such as a home, fence, or electrical line can create an obstacle and a professional tree service will know how to work around it safely.
When hiring a Tulsa tree service, homeowners should always ask for proof of insurance, both liability and workers’ compensation. Liability insurance provides coverage in the event of property damage and workers’ compensation insurance covers medical and rehabilitation costs and wage replacement of employees if they’re injured on the job. A tree service is NOT fully insured unless it carries BOTH liability and workers’ compensation. A Certificate of Insurance should come from an insurance agent to ensure that the policies are current.
TREE REMOVAL EQUIPMENT
Removing a large tree can result in quite a mess and there is a lot of brush, large logs, and debris left behind. A tree service that is qualified to remove large trees will have the proper equipment to haul everything away and clean up properly. Such specialized equipment can include a bucket truck to help provide access to the tree, a grapple truck to lift and haul large logs, a chipper to chip brush and other debris, and a mini skid steer to help move and load brush and logs.
Some trees, like extremely large trees with limited access or a little to no drop zone, may require a crane to safely remove. If a tree does require a crane, it is extremely important that the tree service has experience rigging with a crane.
COST OF TREE REMOVAL
The cost of tree removal depends on a variety of factors, including the size, health, and location of the tree and the extent of the work completed. Homeowners should expect to pay more for trees that are larger in size, are in declining health, or are difficult to access. It is best to contact a tree service that specializes in large tree removal for an estimate.

WHEN TO REMOVE A TREE
Unfortunately, there are times when a tree will need to be removed. Obvious reasons to remove a tree include declining health, damage, or location. If a tree is dead, dying, rotting, or diseased, it should be removed. Removing a dead or dying tree is advisable as soon as you notice it as the longer you wait, the more dangerous it may become.
If a tree is damaged from a storm or construction, it may need to be removed depending on the extent and type of damage. A Certified Arborist will be able to determine whether restorative pruning or removal is the best option.
SIGNS OF A DISEASED TREE THAT MAY NEED TO BE REMOVED
While a diseased tree may not be as obvious as a dead or dying tree, signs of a diseased tree may include:
- Yellow or discolored leaves that lack veins;
- Falling branches; and/or
- Rot on the trunk, branches, or roots.
Disease undermines the structural integrity of the tree making it more likely to cause damage. A tree that is infected with pests or insects and cannot be treated will also likely need to be removed.
Structure preservation is something to consider when it comes to deciding whether to remove a tree. Unfortunately, many trees are removed because the wrong tree was planted in the wrong place. If a tree is too close to a home or other property and the tree is in constant contact with the property, rot may result to the structure itself. Trees with invasive roots can also cause problems by threatening foundations, driveways, or plumbing pipes and can result in thousands of dollars in damage. Safety should also be considered when it comes to tree removal. Trees that are too close to power lines or leaning toward property may also need to be removed, though it may be possible to prune the tree back to help ensure structural integrity and safety. Other reasons to remove a tree include structural issues such as interior decay, a weak crotch, cracks in the trunk or large stems, and exposed or lifted roots.
If you think you have a tree that may need to be removed, an assessment by a Certified Arborist can determine whether pruning or removal is the best option.
Our extensive range of professional equipment allows us to handle any size tree removal in an efficient manner.
TREE REMOVAL FAQs
How much does tree removal cost?
The price of tree removal depends on various factors, including the size, health, and location of the tree, as well as the extent of the work completed. It is best to have Jake, a Tulsa Certified Arborist take a look and provide an estimate.
How long does tree removal take?
The time it takes to remove a tree depends on a variety of factors, including the size, health, and location of the tree, as well as the crew size and equipment required. Trees that need to be climbed or are less accessible by equipment will typically take longer.
Can you remove my tree even if a bucket truck cannot access it?
Yes. If your tree cannot be accessed with a bucket truck Jake and our crew will climb it. All of our climbers use professional tree climbing harnesses and arborist ropes and tools and are properly trained in how to remove a tree using the most up-to-date techniques.
What will my yard look like after a tree is removed?
The TREES BY JAKE crew will always leave your property in as good as condition, if not better, than when we arrived. We will take the proper precautions to protect all landscaping and/or yards if needed.
Can you top my tree?
Topping is the indiscriminate cutting of tree branches without regard to the health of the tree leaving behind a trunk with unsightly stubs instead of limbs or stems. We follow all ISA guidelines and do not top trees as an alternative to tree removal as it can actually lead to the stress and decay of the tree and increase risks. Often times, a proper trimming is all that is needed to help ensure the structure and safety of a tree. In some cases, we can also install a tree cable to help provide structural integrity.
Does your price include hauling away all debris and cleanup?
Yes. All of our estimates include haul away and cleanup unless otherwise requested. We are happy to provide a quote to cut and leave only as some clients do prefer to handle the cleanup themselves to save on cost.

Trees by Jake did a great job taking out a HUGE, dying tree from my backyard. I was impressed by their talent and teamwork throughout the project. They demonstrated high standards in their safety protocol and equipment, and they had the job done in 1 day. I highly recommend them.
Best Tree Removal Company
Removed a huge water oak next to our house with ease. They have all the right equipment and expertise to do the job safely and efficiently. These guys were by far the best tree removal company I have ever used.
Today, we had another tree removed by Trees by Jake. As usual, it was expertly removed by the most courteous crew at an affordable cost. I've used Jake three times and happily recommend him and his company.
WOW - AMAZING!!
WOW - AMAZING!! My husband & I are so very impressed with the work preformed by this company & the professionalism. Safety keeping our home & surrounding homes, fencing, passerby's & vehicles was handled with precision. They removed the tree as instructed along with clean up. Their estimate was commensurate with the task & the next day service was an unexpected bonus. The associates were FAST, RESPECTFUL, FRIENDLY, HONEST & defiantly had all the equipment (as shown in photos) to handle this job or much larger ones. OVERALL: We will, with GREAT PRAISE, recommend this company. It is our belief that "Trees By Jake" can handle any of your tree needs. It is our pleasure to add this review to their arsenal of great reviews! THANK YOU to TREES BY JAKE!
I cannot say enough good things about Trees by Jake. Great experience from start to finish with this company. From the get-go I received exceptional customer service. My request for an estimate was returned almost immediately. When Jake arrived for the estimate, he was confident and knowledgeable. The crew removed a large oak from the backyard like it was nothing. I could hardly believe how well the crew cleaned up! This has not been the case with other tree services I have used in Tulsa. Trees by Jake is truly a great company with great people. Highly recommend to anyone needing tree work.
Thank you to your team for the excellent job removing the several story tall dead pine tree in our front yard. The team did finesse work in making sure the large 10 year old rose bush literally touching the base of the tree incurred little or no damage. That was no simple request given the large number of branches and the size of the tree trunk. The clean up at the end of the day was also impressive — aside from the missing tree and the bald spot in the yard there was practically no evidence they had spent almost the whole day on the job. Well done.
Promptly and Quick
Jake and his crew were wonderful to watch work. They showed up promptly and got to work quickly. We had a large tree split after last weekends winds and needed some substantial clean up in addition to the removal of the dying tree. With his extremely busy schedule he was very considerate while fitting me into their schedule allowing me to keep my att fiber appointment which was also hard to come by this week. Thanks again guys I will certainly be recommending you and you will be the first call for anything I’ll need in the future.
I was Amazed
We used Trees by Jake the last week in October. My yard is heavily wooded and "natural." They removed three very large trees that died from our freezing time, raised the canopy on several others, and trimmed many more. I was amazed at how pristine everything was when they left. I highly recommend Trees by Jake and will use them again. Top notch company, owner, and team.
Very Polite and Respectful
Jake and his team have removed trees for me at several properties. I keep calling them again and again because they always do a great job and give me good value for my money. They clean up after themselves, they’re careful of my property, and they are always very polite and respectful. They’re quick to respond to requests for estimates, which are always free. Jake knows so much about trees and has given me great advice so that I can keep the trees I want healthy and strong.
Experienced and Knowledgeable
Jake and his team are experienced and knowledgeable. They care for the property, the people, and, most importantly, the trees. We unfortunately had to lose a grand, old oak due to a lightning strike, and Trees by Jake removed it with great care. We already have plans to have the crew out again for some limb removal.
I love this crew. They have been removed trees from 2 of my property like its never been there before. Everything clean after & haul them away. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if any one need trees service, Jake is the guy you need.
Quick to Respond
We have used Jake’s for a tree removal in recent years and most recently for trimming. They are quick to respond, professional and food at their job! We highly recommend them.
