Unfortunately, the world isn’t perfect, and unexpected emergencies are going to happen. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a little peace of mind when it comes to tree care emergencies!

Check out this story about a tree falling on a Passaic County family's home! We were able to help them with their emergency, and we can help you too.

What is a Tree Emergency?

The tree emergencies we see the most are weather-related. Strong winds and heavy snow can damage trees quickly and create hazardous situations for people and property. Click the boxes below to learn more about what to look for and when to call an arborist to handle your tree emergency.

Fallen Trees

Your home is precious, and if a tree falls or drops limbs on top of it, you want it taken care of right away. If you’re faced with this kind of emergency, Aspen Tree Service will respond quickly with lifts, cranes, and an expert crew to remediate your situation efficiently and safely.

Blocked Driveways or Roads

Trees that block rights of way and footpaths aren't just inconvenient; they can be dangerous. If this happens to you, call Aspen Tree Service right away to get your paths cleared and make your property safe again.

Trees Touching Power Lines

Power lines and trees don’t mix! Whether severe weather brings your tree into contact with powerlines, the last thing you should do is try to clean it up yourself. Trees contacting power lines can lead to fires, electrocution injury, or even death.

Leaning Trees

Whether due to a storm or another reason, leaning trees can be dangerous when people and property are in jeopardy. If you notice a leaning tree, call Aspen Tree Service, your tree emergency authority!

Reduce Your Risk!

While emergencies are inevitable, you can take steps to reduce your risk. Aspen Tree Service offers Arborist Consultations that can identify at-risk trees and can recommend an annual pruning plan that will keep your trees safer and better able to stand up to our severe New Jersey storms!


“I needed an emergency tree removal on a Saturday night, and I had the good luck to find Aspen Tree Service. Every part of the process was above average, from the two people who answered the main number to Corey, who called me to arrange the service, to the crew, who were very professional. I appreciated that they were able to get here quickly, complete the job without any damage to property and do a perfect cleanup.”

Tree Emergency FAQs

Tree emergencies are typically situations when a tree has become an immediate hazard to people or property. Things like fallen limbs and trunks that have landed on structures or are blocking rights of way, such as driveways and roads, are considered emergencies. Trees and limbs that have fallen on power lines are another type of emergency. 

These types of situations can happen at any time, but we see these types of emergencies most often as a result of storm damage.

While not every emergency can be avoided, there are things you can do to lessen the chance of a tree emergency on your property. These include arborist inspections to assess overall tree health, structural pruning to remove weak and dead branches and limbs, and pruning trees that are encroaching on powerlines and structures.

You should call Aspen Tree Service. Our crews are on-call 24/7 to help with your emergency situation. Don't wait when you have an emergency, call us at 201-939-8733.

Tree work is dangerous, and we never recommend taking on a tree emergency as a DIY project. Every year, homeowners are injured or killed when attempting tree work.

Keep your family and yourself safe by calling in a trained professional to help with your tree emergency. Our specific knowledge and skill mean we consider a lot of things you may not think about when tackling a tree emergency.
