Emergency Tree Service

Stein Tree Service offers same day tree service and 24-hour emergency tree service to meet all of your tree service needs. Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, when a tree falls on your property, a lot of damage can occur and you may be unable to wait days or weeks for action.

Business owners lose income if a tree falls across a roadway, driveway or onto a structure, forcing the business to temporarily close its doors. Homeowners could face income loss if they are unable to get their cars out of the driveway, but more seriously, if the tree falls on a home and damages the structure, family members may have no place to stay safely until the tree is removed and repairs can begin.

For these reasons, Stein Tree Service offers 24/7 emergency tree service. Part of our service includes storm damage clean up to help remove the fallen branches and downed trees caused by summer thunder storms, tornadoes and winter ice and snow. Our trucks are radio dispatched and can be at most properties in less than 2 hours to begin the clean-up process and limit the damage to other property caused by downed trees.

How Much Does Emergency Tree Service Cost?

Cost can vary depending on the amount of damage and debris, but Stein Tree Service offers a unique program called TreeFall that could save participants thousands of dollars in the event of necessary storm clean up services. This savings could be a huge help, especially since the cost of storm clean up usually falls directly on the homeowner.

Even if you are insured, insurance usually only covers tree removal of the portion of a tree that actually lands on an insured structure. So if you have any remaining portions of a damaged tree on your property or debris, those removal and clean-up costs will fall on you.

Why Do You Need A Professional Tree Service Company for Emergency Tree Removal?

You might be thinking that you should attempt to remove the tree and do the storm clean up yourself. However, consider these important factors before you try.


Emergency Tree Removal Service Wilmington DE- Storm AidTree removal can be dangerous, especially if the tree is large, is in an inaccessible place or is close to/leaning against a power line. Annually, over 164,000 people in the US visit the emergency room with injuries resulting from a ladder fall. Of these, an average of 300 are ultimately fatal.

Our tree care professionals are trained and experienced in proper methods for removing a tree. We strictly enforce our safety procedures, for the benefit of the specialist and the home or business owner. We also have the necessary equipment for reaching high areas and for using chainsaws or other tools. Though you may know how to use a chainsaw, doing so in an awkward position or from a ladder can lead to serious or even fatal accidents.


A professional tree service company knows how to make cuts in such a way that the branches and trunk portions cause no more damage to the structure, or to nearby properties. You may already be paying for damages to your own home; you want to avoid more costs for damage to the neighbors or their homes.

When you have a tree in your living room or on top of your car, time is of the essence. You want to have the tree and debris removed as soon as possible so that your life can go back to normal, and so that any needed repairs can be completed. Taking the time to figure out how to do the job and procure the necessary equipment takes valuable hours or even days. Stein Tree’s professionals could be on your site the same day to evaluate and possibly even get started on emergency tree services such as removal and clean up.


When our professional tree specialist visits your site, he/she will inspect the damage and determine what needs to be done to clean up the area safely. At the same time, our Certified Tree Risk Assessors can be on site to evaluate remaining trees to ensure they are not at risk of failure and potentially injuring people or damaging additional property. If necessary, our crew can install tree cabling and bracing systems to support the at-risk branches.

If other preventive maintenance needs to be performed, we will let you know and come up with a plan to ensure that you avoid further future damage to your trees or property from storms.

Hire an Insured Tree Service Company to Avoid Liability

Again, tree removal can be dangerous, and even professionals can sometimes be injured. When this happens with an uninsured contractor, homeowners could find themselves liable for the worker’s injuries. Be sure that you find a company, like Stein Tree, that is licensed and fully insured to protect yourself from further costs and heartache in the event of an accident.
