Tree Removal With Roots

At Roots & Shoots Tree Care we love trees! We do everything in our power to save your trees from damage from insects, disease and the elements. Sometimes though, a tree just needs to be removed. Storms (hail, wind, snow) often cause too much damage to an already stressed tree. Insects, especially Emerald Ash Borer in Colorado, can also end the life of a tree.

We will work with you to help you decide if your tree needs to be removed. Often we can prune away dead or diseased parts of the tree. Sometimes the tree needs to be removed entirely. We can remove the tree and roots if that is what works best for your landscape needs.

3 ways to tell if you have a dying tree

Trunk Damage

When a tree ages, old bark will fall off on its own and eventually be replaced by a new layer of bark if the tree is healthy. If new bark doesn’t reappear and areas of smooth wood remain, this can be an indicator your tree’s health is on the decline.

Bare Branches

One warning sign is if the branches are bare during a time of the year when they should be covered in leaves. Also keep in mind that on dead branches of deciduous trees, dead leaves will cling well into the winter instead of dropping to the ground as they would on a healthy deciduous tree.


Large fungus — shelf or bracket fungus (aka wood conchs) — on the trunk or branch of a tree can indicate that your tree is experiencing internal rot and anything beyond the fungus may be dead or dying.
