Andrew and his team showed up 2 hours after the tree hit the house. They carefully and safely were able to remove the tree with no further damage. The insurance company covered his costs. We could not be happier with the turn around time, professionalism and the quality of equipment and skill used to execute the job! Unfortunate circumstances thrown at us from mother nature but great results! Thank you again Andrew!!

Andrew and his crew are great to work with. They showed up when they said they would, were very courteous and went over all work to be done before proceeding. Two large trees needed pruning and the crew worked meticulously selecting the branches to be cut. They were considerate of the neighbors and cleaned up all debris before leaving. They did great work at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them as arborists.

Eradication is done by mechanical or chemical means.  Mechanical by cutting the vine at the base of the tree, without damaging the tree bark.

Chemical eradication is accomplished either with roundup  (glyphosate) or an organic-oriented solution of  1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (reduced by boiling with tablespoon of seasalt) and then cooling it and adding a tablespoon of dawn dishwashing detergent.  

This organic option and the roundup option are both best applied to the leaves in the evening, when the chances of evaporation are less.  The solution should sit on the leaves for an hour or more, so that it can be taken in by the plant
