Tree Trimming


If not maintained properly, trees can become damaged, unhealthy and dangerous. Regular pruning and maintenance will prolong the heath and life of your trees and improve the aesthetics of your property. All types of trees bring their own specific problems and our approach is unique for every tree we prune. Contact us and our experts will consult with you to determine what kind of care is best for your property all within your budget.

Lot Clearing

Lot clearing is perfect for properties undergoing a transformation. Whether you are making way for new construction, renovations, or a lawn expansion, the process consists of clearing trees and shrubs.

Stump Grinding

After a tree or shrub is removed the next step is stump grinding. Our process uses use a rotating stump grinder which removes tree stumps by chipping away the wood. Afterwords the area is able to be used for anything you need it for.

Forestry Mulching

Forestry mulching is a land clearing method where undesired vegetation, trees, brush and stumps are ground into mulch and spread over the cut area. This deters re-growth of undesirable vegetation, prevents erosion, and replenishes the topsoil.

REVIEWS ⇢ What our customers say...

Top Notch Tree Service did an excellent job removing trees. They were courteous, efficient, and on budget. I was pleased to have hired them, and would highly recommend them.

Jim C.

I was very pleased with Top Notch Tree service! Robert called me within minutes of me putting my request into the system. When they came, they got the tree down in a few hours and cut it up and placed it in a neat pile at the curb. They were also careful about not causing any additional damage and charged a fair price. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!

Melody L.

After hiring Robert, he stayed in contact and showed up for the job on schedule. I have used the well know local businesses in the past and nothing compared to the service I received at a price less then the fitness tree and others…Even did a few things to make the job complete that I left out because of the budget. I am simply blown away by Robert and the service he provided. There is a reason the name is Top Notch. I highly recommend this company and he is currently scheduled to work for family. No need to continue looking. He s your guy.

Chris R.

A pleasure to work with. Robert is knowledgeable about pruning trees and safely climbed throughout our Laurel Oak canopy to remove broken limbs. Work done by him and his crew was thorough and met specifications of the proposal. Cleanup and debris removal well done. Price was reasonable. I would use Top Notch again and would recommend them.

After trying several tree services with no call backs I found Top Notch through Home Advisors. They responded promptly and was given an estimate that night. They came on the scheduled day and completed the work. Their work was complete and very neat. They cleaned up my yard and left everything looking good. I would highly recommend them.

Top Notch showed up on time to give an estimate. He found a hole in his schedule and got the job done sooner than I expected. They were very ,professional and did an excellent job of cleaning up. An overall great experience.

Edward M.

Top Notch Tree service was professional and affordable. They were very helpful and knowledgeable and took extra care to preserve the grass with the heavy equipment that was needed to remove a large tree. They were able to prune trees back away from power lines and the house and promptly notified me when additional tree damage was found so they could remove dangerous hanging widow maker limbs.

Kevin V.

Robert at Top Notch was very kind and did excellent work at a very fair price. He was thorough and delivered on his promises even going above and beyond what we had talked about, as well left everything super neat and tidy. His crew members were excellent as well. I cannot recommend Top Notch highly enough, I would never work with anyone else and I am recommending him to family, friends and more. If you’re in Wilmington these are definitely the people you want to work with.
