Of course, we trim trees. And we do it exceptionally well! However, at Able Tree Service, we provide a wide variety of tree care and tree removal services far beyond the scope of “just” trimming. See the page below for details about all the following categories of tree services we provide. (And if you have a need that you do not find on our site, please contact us, and we will do our best to meet your needs or refer you to the proper provider).

Tree Trimming and Pruning

Able Tree Service offers Missoula tree trimming and pruning services that are a step above the rest. Anyone can take a trimming or pruning tool to a tree, but that doesn’t mean it’s done right. At Able, we use our combined 70+ years of experience to give your trees the trimming and pruning they need, but with the expertise and TLC they deserve.

Tree Pruning

Our certified arborists will climb your tree and expertly trim it in accordance with ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) standards. Keep in mind that if you have specific trimming needs, we will be happy to discuss these with you.

Fruit Tree Pruning

Fruit tree pruning begins with the first stage of rehabilitation pruning in the winter months. Proper pruning over a specified period of time will ensure fruit production. We can apply an organic, non-toxic mineral oil spray early in the spring to suffocate wintering insect eggs and fungal spores.

Technical Removals

Able Tree Service specializes in tough removals, especially those in hard-to-access areas. While most companies rely solely on bucket trucks and equipment to remove trees, Able has consistently utilized our technical climbing skills to facilitate removals where lift trucks and other large equipment simply cannot operate.

Debris Removal

After a storm, spring clean up, or any other event that may produce tree debris, Able Tree Service can offer our expertise and equipment to clean up your fallen limbs, broken branches, etc. Our chipper can accommodate limbs and branches up to 14”, so please give us a call and let us do the cleanup!

Stump Grinding

Have a stump in your yard that is prohibiting you from achieving your ideal landscape? We can help with stump grinding services! Our stump grinders are ideal for tight spaces where others may not be able to fit; accessing a backyard with only a single wide gate is no problem! After grinding the stump to an approximate depth of 8” below grade, your yard will once again be available for new plantings and landscaping. Since certain stumps can ‘sucker’ back out, we also use a chemical product (for a small additional fee) to kill the stump and prevent volunteers from sprouting through your lawn.

Insecticide Injections

Are your trees weeping? Dripping? Do you have a sticky residue on your patio furniture, your car, or your exterior windows? These problems can all be solved by applying a specific insecticide to your trees. We use a soil injection method to apply our insecticides, which means that more product gets to your trees, and there is no spray drift or runoff to worry about. By injecting the product directly into the root zone of your Tree, we assure that more product goes where it belongs, and all with less waste.

Dormant Oil

Worried about pesticides? Would you like to keep your property pesticide-free? Able Tree Service also offers an all-organic dormant oil spray! Dormant oils have been used for decades to control insects and fungi on fruit trees, but only recently have we begun using oils that can be applied year-round without the risk of harming foliage. By spraying trees with dormant oil, we can ‘suffocate’ insects and fungi instead of relying on a chemical reaction to poison them. We also offer discounts for consecutive applications, so you can have pest-free trees year-round!

Emergency Insect Applications

Have an important barbecue or picnic in your backyard soon, and want to make sure your trees are insect-free. We also have many products and application techniques to kill insects in 48 hours. Call today for more information!

Plant Health Care

Feeding and watering trees is the best way to keep them healthy and prevent future issues. Just like any other organism, trees can fight off infection and pest infestation much easier when they are in a healthy state. By applying a slow-release drought formula fertilizer to your trees, you can be assured that they will remain healthy and happy throughout the growing season. All you need is one annual treatment for year-round fertilization!

For those who really want their trees to flourish and prosper, we also offer our Soil Therapy Program. By injecting the product into the root zone of the Tree at 400 pounds per square inch, we create beneficial air spaces in compacted soil. These air spaces improve the movement of oxygen into the root, which is essential for all life activities in the soil. Included in the injected liquid are beneficial symbiotic fungi (ectomycorrhizal {Pt} and endomycorrhizal) and bacteria (nitrogen-fixing, phosphorus solubilizing, and growth-promoting). For best results, we recommend three consecutive annual treatments.

We also offer Cambistat. Cambistat is a plant growth regulator that provides a long-lasting reduction in tree growth that effectively extends the trimming cycle of trees.

Cabling & Bracing

Cabling and bracing will reduce the risk of tree failure as a result of structural weakness, storm damage, mechanical injury, rubbing, or the weight of long heavy limbs. We will fit your tree with a dynamic cabling system.

Tree Appraisals

Trees add monetary value to your property. We measure the circumference of your trees, determine the species, and evaluate the trees’ location and condition. We establish the aesthetic and shade value of your trees based on the “Guide for Plant Appraisal, 9th Edition,” developed by the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers and published by the International Society of Arboriculture.

Tree Inventory

We provide our clients with very detailed free estimates so we can keep track of their trees’ progress. When our head arborist visits your property, he/she will measure your tree, determine the species, and its location on your property. We then store this information in our customized database for future comparative assessments.

Emergency Tree Services

Safety is our primary concern. If you suspect a tree has become unsafe, or you have storm damage such as hanging limbs, branches that have fallen on a roof, or a car or are blocking traffic, please contact us immediately. Able Tree Service will get there as soon as possible to assess the damage, take action, and ensure your safety.
