Full Service Tree Care

Professional tree care for residential and commercial properties in Riverdale

Landscape in Riverdale NY

Riverdale is an incredibly unique area - so much so that it has been designated a Special Natural Area District (SNAD) by the city. Among other things, this means that in an effort to preserve the neighborhood's landscape, any tree 6" wide or larger requires a permit for removal. At Almstead, we can help you to navigate these regulations. We are highly experienced in hazardous tree assessment as well as mature tree preservation. We are also accustomed to performing the difficult tree removal and pruning work that arises in Riverdale's often hard-to-navigate properties and roadways.

In addition to the many beautiful landscape trees in Riverdale - including Red Oaks, Black Locusts, Cedars, Sweetgums and smaller ornamentals like Dogwoods and Crabapples - there is also a very real problem with invasive plants, including Ailanthus and Norway Maples and various vines. Managing these invasives is a critical element of property maintenance, and it is definitely more of an issue for residents in Riverdale than in other areas of the city and even parts of Westchester because it is such a relatively naturalized area.
