Proper Tree Removal

Bradford Pear Bounty sponsored by Clemson Extension, South carolina forestry commission and the city of Clemson

Property owners are responsible for the removal of their tree. It is highly recommended that you contact a licensed tree professional to remove any trees on your property. Cut stumps should be immediately treated with an herbicide (glyphosate or triclopyr) to ensure that the stumps and large roots don’t resprout.

The Tree Care Industry Association has a lot of useful information for landowners that can benefit their safety and decision-making.
