Making the decision to remove a tree can be a difficult one. They are beautiful, provide shade, attract wildlife and oftentimes have sentimental value associated with them. You should consider removing the tree if it:

  • Is dead, dying or diseased
  • Has structural problems or interior decay
  • Has cracks in the main truck or any of the leaders
  • Was damaged in a storm
  • Leaning in a dangerous direction (i.e. towards your home)
  • Has grown too large for its current location
  • Blocking views or has become aesthetically unpleasing

After a tree has been removed, you are left with an unsightly stump. What now? Splintered Forest offers stump grinding. By eliminating the stump, it allows you to beautify your landscape, open up areas to plant additional foliage and makes the area safer to be in.


Utilizing the Splintered Forest knuckle boom crane for your tree removal project has many benefits over traditional removal methods, including:

  • Quicker and more efficient
  • Less of an impact on your landscaping
  • Increased safety for the crew
  • The ability to remove trees that cannot be climbed or felled

Wildfires are a constant threat to people and properties across Colorado, but many people don’t realize that they are facing serious wildfire danger. By completing fire mitigation on your property and creating a defensible space (and encouraging
your neighbors to do the same), you can help reduce the risk.

Three areas need to be addressed when creating a defensible space:

  • Zone 1: The area that is closest to the home or structure. This zone requires the most work and hazard reduction. This area typically extends out to at least 30’ from the outermost part of the home.
  • Zone 2: A transitional area of fuels in between Zone 1 and 3 that covers from 30’-100’
  • Zone 3: The area farthest from the home (extending from the edge of Zone 2 to your property boundaries)

After a major storm, it can be difficult to determine the damage sustained to your trees and what the proper course of action should be. To assess a tree, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is the tree healthy and strong?
  • Are any major/large limbs broken?
  • Has the main tree stem been lost?
  • Is at least 50% of the crown intact?
  • How big are the wounds?
  • Are there remaining branches that can for a new branch structure?


Safety is always the first priority so if you suspect major damage or a tree is posing an imminent threat, consult with a Splintered Forest ISA Certified Arborist immediately to assess the damage.


There are many factors that go into properly trimming/pruning a tree. If trimmed incorrectly, it could cause serious damage to the tree, even killing it over time. The ISA Certified Arborists at Splintered Forest have both the knowledge and
expertise to remove branches while still keeping the overall aesthetics of the tree intact. By having a trained professional trim your tree, you can:


  • Make the tree healthier and stronger, ultimately extending the lifespan of the tree
  • Increase the ability of the tree to defend against diseases, pests, storms or high winds
  • Remove limbs that are unsightly or may be dangerous
  • Encourage fruit production (on fruit generating trees)
