We Help Make Roadways Safer

Although roadside trees in Connecticut can increase safety, such as by providing shelter and acting as traffic-calming elements, they can also become hazards that need to be removed.

Roadside Tree Removal Services

Whether it's for Connecticut utility companies, municipalities, or the CT Department of Transportation, Rayzor's Edge Tree Service provides comprehensive tree removal and right-of-way vegetation management services. For example, we remove:

  • Dead, dying, or decayed trees or tree limbs that are likely to fall on the roadway, shoulder, median, or ramps
  • Plants that reduce sight distance at intersections and along roadways
  • Vegetation encroaching along the roadside and compromising clear zones
  • Trees and brush that are or could become dangerous fixed objects
  • Trees that shade roads in winter and prevent the sun from melting ice (to minimize the use of extra salt and deicers)
  • Vegetation that causes snow drifts on the right of way
  • Trees and undergrowth to improve the roadside appearance and open vistas to the surrounding landscape
  • Invasive tree species
