Godzilla’s Tree Service: They go out on a limb for you

By From page HGS10 | April 30, 2014

You’ve been looking at for years that aging oak that hangs dangerously over your deck and garage. But it still offers shade come summer and only the one branch seems to be a little discolored and “woody.”

Then Dave Bender from Channel 13 news comes on at 4 and warns you of a wind advisory. Trucks are blowing off the interstate and tornadoes are appearing as close as Roseville. And as you lie in bed that night, the wind howls through every crack around your windows and every door that hasn’t been weather stripped. But most of all, you hear the heavy branches of that mighty oak straining against the wind. You should have had someone take a look at it. Odds are by morning you’ll be dead. Or at least that thought is keeping you up for the rest of the night.

We’ve all got a worrisome tree somewhere near our home. It’s time to find the team from Godzilla’s Tree Service at this year’s El Dorado County Home and Garden show and make an appointment to have them give you a free estimate for having that tree taken down.

Fast and affordable, Godzilla’s tree trimmers and brush removal team will make it so that despite how bad the next storm might be, you can rest comfortably knowing you’ve done what needs to be done to keep your home and family safe.

“We’ve made the front page of the Mountain Democrat a couple of times,” said Michael Haskins, owner of Godzilla’s Tree Service. His company gets called out to do emergency work more than they’d care to be. Sadly, some of the jobs don’t have happy endings. They’ve had to cut trees from a crushed mobile home or cut up a tree that has fallen on a passing car.

“We offer mechanical mastication of small trees and brush,” said Haskins. In hours, that wall of vegetation and debris can be cut and turned to chips. “We can generally come out within a day or two to give the property owners a bid for the work.”

Haskins and his family own and operate Godzilla’s Tree Service and have been in the area since 1984. They’ve seen it all and can evaluate your tree service needs, including removal, clearing for new construction, trimming our native trees so that they look manicured and safe.

“Spring is typically our busiest season,” said Haskins. People leave their homes and venture outside where they see what a couple of months of winter and neglect have done. And this is where it is nice to pick up the phone and call Godzilla’s Tree Service and the Haskins family and have them come out. Before you know it, it will be summer and that groomed property will be perfect for family adventures, maybe a backyard wedding,  barbecues and mostly, safe.
