We have seasoned split firewood at reasonable prices. Our firewood is premium hard wood and we sell in cords only. Delivery fees are usually included in our prices. We do not offer any pick up. We recommend calling for firewood before the end of September as we are usually sold out by then with our fully seasoned wood. We do provide wood all winter long, but in most cases it is not fully seasoned.
We will begin firewood deliveries in the beginning of September.
To guarantee your firewood order, please place your order now for September delivery.
Large & Small Tree Removal
Removing trees should always be a last option, especially if they are healthy. However, there are many situations where trees need to be removed: if they are dead, dying, conflicting with construction, root system or tree to close to the house, potential hazard, or just does not have a good appearance.
Starke Tree Care specializes in safely removing small or large trees. We plan our removals with safety in mind using lifts, bucket trucks or cranes where necessary. Our expert climbers take all measures to ensure a safe removal by rigging and carefully lowering. We also have turf-friendly equipment so your yard is not damaged during the process of removal.
Crane removals are a safe way to remove a tree that is too close to a home or building as well as difficult conditions with topography. The crane operator and climber work together to take large sections of the tree down which can reduce the impact on the land around the tree as well as easily lowering the sections to a place where it is convenient for clean up.
Pruning / Trimming
Pruning is a common tree maintenance service we provide. Pruning / thinning / elevating / dead wooding can all help keep your trees stay healthy and have a nice appearance. It is recommended to thoroughlyprune your trees every 3-5 years. There may also be some instances where pruning will need to be done in between to take care of touch ups of suckers, branches that may be growing to close to the house, or branches that have dropped to low to the ground.
Thinning and Elevating
Thinning involves cleaning the crown and removing selective branches to increase light and air movement.
Elevating the lower branches of a tree from ground upward can provide clearance.
