Storm Clean Up

We help you recover quickly from storm damage.  When a tree has been damaged and requires emergency removal or pruning, it often requires immediate action. Do not attempt to removal a damaged tree yourself as they can be highly unstable and dangerous.



Tree Trimming + Pruning

Our arborists determine if your trees have hazardous branches, and prune the branches appropriately to ensure your property’s safety. Pruning your trees regularly gives you peace of mind ensuring tree limbs do not grow too close to a structure, trees remain safer so they do not fall, and trees do not become susceptible to high winds, insect infestations, and diseases.



Tree Consulting

Be proactive and get one of our expert and certified arborists to survey your property and its trees to determine if there are any hidden hazards along with a preventative plan that will keep your home, family, and other structures safe from dangerous trees or storm emergencies.



Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is an efficient way to finish any true tree removal. Knotty Arborists can safely grind down tree stumps so that your yard looks beautiful, you have more space, and major trip hazards are removed. Plus, removing tree stumps prevents termites and ants from nesting. The grindings left behind make great mulch and we leave the area ready for replanting.



Shoreland Zoning

Living in the Sebago Lakes region, we are educated in the current Maine shoreland zoning laws and regulations. Our specialty service helps you reduce banking erosion and/or improve your waterfront vista. Want more sun? Less sun? We create a plan together to clean, thin, and enhance trees in your shoreland.

    Tree Care Testimonials

    Named the Best Tree Removal Company in Maine

    • Client Image

      Tanya and Branden are a rare combination of professionalism and good people. They listen, respond, are punctual, and genuinely care. Their cleanup was exceptional and price very reasonable. I love my trees, so they will be my first call if I need tree work!

      • Marianne K Portland, Maine
    • Client Image

      After we moved into our new home, surrounded by mature trees, a friend referred us to Knotty Arborists. Tanya and Brandon assessed the health of our trees and recommended removing only a few limbs. They worked safely and efficiently, charged exactly what they’d estimated, and left our property looking great. We’ll be using them again, I am sure.

      • Alice R.
    • Client Image

      Tanya and Branden reviewed the scope of the job, gave me a quote, and stuck to that quote. They were efficient and skilled and did a great job cleaning up after the job was done. I was very pleased and actually used them again for a second job a few weeks later.
