Twin Cities Buckthorn Tree Removal and Treatment Experts

Buckthorn trees, also known as European buckthorn, have become a significant problem in North America and many other places around the world. This invasive tree species can grow up to 30 feet tall with a thick trunk, and have branches covered in thorns. Because they have a shallow root system and grow quickly, they outcompete native plants for resources and disrupt local ecosystems.

Help protect your property’s landscaping and vegetation, as well as our native ecosystems, with professional buckthorn removal from JB Tree Care & Landscaping.

Why is Buckthorn Removal Important?

If left unchecked, buckthorn trees can quickly spread and take over large areas of land, choking out native vegetation and reducing biodiversity. They can also alter soil conditions and increase erosion, leading to further environmental damage.

Additionally, buckthorn trees can be unsightly and detract from the natural beauty of your property. Getting rid of them properly helps improve the look and overall value of your property.

Our Process: How We Safely Remove Buckthorn

If you have buckthorn trees on your property, you should have them treated or removed to prevent further environmental damage. To do so safely and effectively, we will:

  1. Assess the situation: Determine the size, age, and location of the buckthorn trees and any potential hazards, such as power lines or buildings, before we begin.
  2. Thoroughly remove present buckthorn: Our team will begin removing the buckthorn using the most effective method, based on the age and size of the trees. In cases of mature buckthorn trees with stems/trunks measuring 4-6 inches in diameter, we will use a handsaw or chainsaw to cut it as close to the ground as possible.
  3. Apply chemical treatment: Following removal, we will spray/treat the tree and area with chemical herbicide to prevent regrowth.

No matter the size and scale of your buckthorn infestation, the professionals at JB Tree Care & Landscaping have the experience and tools to get the job done safely and permanently. We’ll assess the entire situation and ensure that the trees are properly treated without causing harm to the environment or nearby structures.
