At Mr. Tree, we specialize in giving your trees the top-tier care they deserve. While tree care and maintenance is our primary field, that’s not everything we have to offer! In the spirit of not letting good talent go to waste, you can also come to Mr. Tree for premier excavation services.
So whether you need some land cleared for new construction or you need a section of your property cleaned and cleared, you can trust us to get the job done. Not sure if you need our help? Here are just a few of the premier excavation services we offer.
Road Building Services
Beginning new construction in a less-developed area can let you build with boundless potential, but it comes at a price. The farther out you start building, the fewer public utilities you’re likely to have access to. For the initial phases of your project, you might be working without electricity, running water, sewage, or even a road in! We’re happy to say that we are well equipped to help you build that road and get the project moving ahead.
With our skilled cat operators, we’re ready to help take you to the next step. Our premier excavation services leave nothing up to chance, and we’ll carefully plan the excavation before any machinery is rolled out.
First, we’ll evaluate any environmental impact there might be, ensuring that all natural habitats are preserved throughout the process. Once we’ve done that, we’ll carefully plot out the size and depth of the excavation needed for the project. Armed with that knowledge, we’ll be able to clear away any underbrush, level out the land, and prepare the land for the road to be laid out. Whether your project is a smaller residential one or a large commercial one, Mr. Tree is ready and able to help.
Landslides and Mudslides
Living in the Pacific Northwest comes with plenty of upsides. Beautiful greenery, mild weather, and clean air make our little corner of the world one of the most pleasant places to live in the country. All that natural grandeur comes with its costs, though, and the frequent rain can lead to unfortunate landslides and mudslides. Both can cause significant damage to property, and both can be a massive headache to clean up.
If you ever find yourself in the unenviable position of having to clean up after a landslide or mudslide, know you don’t have to go it alone. Our premier excavation services can help clear the way again and help prevent future incidents.
When you call Mr. Tree to help clear a landslide or mudslide, we’ll go above and beyond the call of duty. We can help clear away the slide mass, allowing you full access to your property again. After that, we’ll be able to take some preventative steps. We can reduce the height of the slope that caused the slide, flatten out the slope entirely, or cut in benches to reduce the force of any falling matter. With proper excavation, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your property is well protected from damage from more unstable earth.
Washout Repairs and Clean Up
The same rainfall that keeps the Portland area so green can also cause some serious damage to any yards or open earth on your property. Washout can carry away sod and wash earth away from under the ground, making what was once a level plane into a bumpy, uneven, and even unstable stretch of land. At Mr. Tree, we’re not strangers to the problems our ample rain can cause. Our many premier excavation services can help you set your property back in order and keep your land even and stable.
Washout and erosion can cause major problems for a property, particularly if you’re planning on building any major structures there. Our excavation can help correct any washout that might occur, bringing the situation back under control.
First, our experienced staff will examine the land to determine any and all points of erosion. That information will allow us to accurately combat the washout, establishing where your problem areas are and what can be done to repair them. Future washout can be prevented with the addition of heavier materials, such as gravel or stones, as well as more plant life. If on the off chance you decide that some sturdy tree roots are what’s needed to keep the land together, we’re more than prepared to help with that too.
Maybe you’re not that far along in your project. Maybe you just have the land, and you’re getting ready to start from the ground up. The first step you’ll need to take is leveling out the ground, creating a blank canvas for you to begin construction on. Ground leveling is also one of the most important steps of a new construction project, so an expert opinion is invaluable. If you’re ready to break ground, we’re ready to help you start your project off on the right foot.
Once you’ve determined the boundaries of your project, you can call on us to do some ground leveling and get the land under control. We’ll measure out the work area, tear up the uneven earth, and pack it all down into one smooth plane. It’s a long process, but it’s worth it in the end. Properly leveled land prevents water from eroding away your foundations, makes landscaping projects more stable, and gives the finished project a unified and intentional look. Ground leveling is important work, so let us use our expertise to do the job right.
Need some other work done? No need to worry! These are just a few of the premier excavation services we offer the Portland area. We’re ready to take on whatever excavation or cat work you might need. Mr. Tree offers its excavation services at a competitive rate, and our years of experience make us second to none. We would be happy to partner with you as you put your plan in action.
