"Our Customers Notice a Difference"

"Removal of huge diseased oak trees- some as high as 80 ft. Other vendors would not take the job or wanted high prices to do it. KC was absolutely great! They had all the equipment to actually lift the trees over the house and remove them.  Approximately 10 trees.  The neighbors also came out to hire them to remove a few of their trees"

Storm damaged trees repair checklist

After a severe storm, many homeowners wonder "Can my trees be saved?"  Follow these simple steps for dealing with damaged trees after a storm.


1. Look around

  1. Approach damaged trees with extreme caution—stay clear of downed wires and call 911.

  2. If a large tree or branch is hanging or under tension, seek professional help - Call KC Tree Inc. 574.674.7722. 


2. Assess the Damage

Ask the following questions:

Other than the storm damage, is the tree healthy and vigorous?

If the tree is healthy, is not creating a hazard, and did not suffer major structural damage, it will generally recover if you take first aid measures immediately.

Are major limbs broken?

The larger a broken limb, the harder it will be for the tree to recover from the damage. If most of the main branches are gone, the tree may have little chance of surviving and removal should be considered.

Has the leader, the main upward-trending branch, been lost?

In species where a leader is important to upward growth or desirable appearance, it's a judgment call. The tree may live without its leader, but it will be stunted or deformed.

Is at least 50 percent of the tree's crown (branches and leaves) still intact?

This is a good rule of thumb on tree survivability. A tree with less than half of its branches remaining may not be able to produce enough food to survive another season. Removal should be considered.

How big are the wounds?

Larger wounds are less likely to heal, leaving the tree vulnerable to disease and insects. A 2- to 3-inch wound on a 12-inch diameter limb will seal over with new wood and bark within a couple of years.

Can remaining branches replace the missing branches?

The remaining limbs will grow more vigorously as the tree tries to replace its missing foliage. Look to see if branches are in places that can eventually fill out the tree's appearance


Make the Decision

The questions above will help you make informed decisions about storm-damaged trees. In general, the answer will fall into one of three categories:

1. It's a Keeper


  • If damage is relatively slight, prune broken branches, repair torn bark or rough edges around wounds, and let the tree begin the process of wound repair. 

2. Wait and See

  • If a valuable tree appears to be a borderline case, it may be best to stand back for a while and think it over. After carefully pruning broken branches, give the tree some time to recover. A final decision can be made later. 

3. Say Goodbye

  • Some trees simply can't be saved or are not worth saving. If the tree is already weakened, if the trunk is split, or if more than 50 percent of the crown is gone, the tree has lost its survival edge.


Don't Try to Do It All Alone!  

Some of your trees may have hidden damage or damage that's too close to call. In such cases, you may need a tree professional to help you decide what to do. Don't hire just anyone who shows up at your door following a storm! We are expert tree service techs that specialize in storm damage!

At KC Tree, we value trees. 

Tree removal is not the service that we prefer to execute, but when necessary, we perform the removal professionally. In order to eliminate dead and dying trees, hazardous trees due to storm damage, or to promote the growth and health of adjacent specimen trees, tree removal is sometimes required.  Trees are also removed to make room for new construction or building additions.

Tree removal is the most dangerous part of landscaping. Often, must remove trees that are growing in tight areas near homes, buildings and utility lines. To safely and successfully perform this service, tree removal crews require considerable experience and training.


Tree removal may involve the use of a specialized lift, a crane, or use of technical rigging and knowledge of advanced climbing techniques.  Because we have invested in specialized equipment, our prices remain competitive.  Our crew is very experienced and comfortable performing tree removal with the crane and lift. Clients have come to prefer this method because these advanced techniques protect their property and streamline the project.

KC Tree Inc. is equipped to remove large landscape shrubs and trees. Whether a tree is removed manually or with our crane, we take great pride in minimizing impact to surrounding vegetation.  Our goal in all of our tree work operations is to provide thorough clean up of debris and to leave your property in excellent condition.

Stump Grinding

After tree removal is completed, stumps near wood lines can be left to decompose naturally. However, stumps that are unsafe or in the way of future plantings can be ground down. Removing stumps from your landscape requires specialized equipment and KC Tree Inc. can accomplish it with minimal disturbance of existing plants or lawn. Stump removal pulverizes the wood into finely shredded mulch that is left in place to enrich the soil.

Reasons for Tree Removal

Though trees can add an aesthetic appeal to any landscape, there are times when removal is necessary. The following are reasons that a tree may need to be removed to protect your property and its surroundings:

  • Rotten, decayed tree

  • Preventing hazardous situations from occurring

  • Reducing the amount of shade in an area

  • Better grass growth in certain areas

  • Increasing space in your yard

  • Extending the life of the tree root

About Trees


"Watched your company deal with an absolute DANGEROUS mess of 2 huge entangled trees at my neighbors today. I'm still in awe how you handled it. Watching that crane carry all of it over her house was frightening and amazing. The yards didn't even get tore up! Great job! Very impressed!"

"They were prompt and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. They also took care of the tree stump very well."

We are licensed and fully insured, including workers compensation and general liability. Safety is first!To support this policy,  compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) regulations, the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standards, and the training by the company. 


"K C Trees removed two very large trees from our yard. These were trees that many other services said they could not do.  The one other service that would do it said they could only do one of the trees...and for a cost that was twice that of K C Trees' quote for doing both!  So, we were very happy with the price. 
 We were also very happy with the work.  They did a great job taking out the trees, grinding stumps, etc.  They even got the specific details we had discussed correct.  They did it all while we were out of the house.  We left one morning with massive dead trees behind the house, and we returned to both trees gone and everything cleaned up. "

"They ground 2 tree stumps and cut out another one. The 2 trees had blown over in a storm and the 3rd was cut down. They did a great job!"

"Called KC Tree based on recommendations from two friends that had used their services.  I had very poor experience with a previous tree service company, so I was cautious.  Everyone I talked with from the office personnel to the service people were professional, helpful, and friendly.."  

"They climb trees to take branches down that need to be taken down. They don't take trees out that don't need to be taken out. I am very impressed with the person who does the evaluation of what needs to be done. There is no nonsense; just you should do this but you shouldn't do that for this reason. I will use them again in the future!"

"Our property is hilly and covered with trees. It seems that we need tree help every 5 years or so. We have always used KC Tree Service. We can talk with them, agree on what they are going to do and what we will do (we do some of the cleanup sometimes), and it goes as expected."

"They were prompt and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. They also took care of the tree stump very well."

"The crew was absolutely amazing. They showed up about 7:30 am and got to work. I had to leave for work, but when i came home the tree was gone, the area was very cleanly swept, it was as if it had never existed."

"They were very professional. They included wood chips for free..."

"Watched your company deal with an absolute DANGEROUS mess of 2 huge entangled trees at my neighbors today. I'm still in awe how you handled it. Watching that crane carry all of it over her house was frightening and amazing. The yards didn't even get tore up! Great job!"  

"Big thanks to these guys and working in the rain to clean up.!"
