Cottonwood Tree Removal

Englewood’s homeowners and developers planted Cottonwoods in the 1960s and 1970s because they grow fast and produce shade. However, these trees are prone to disease and mechanical breakage. Large Cottonwoods can drink up to 100 gallons of water per day in the summer. Homeowners worried about large branches dropping down in their yards should check out our blog on removing a large Cottonwood tree.
