We provide the following tree services:
If removal of a tree is necessary, our Tree Service Team will cut the tree quickly and remove the danger of it falling on your home, automobile, children, or pets using a variety of methods including felling techniques, climbing, and crane options.
Our crew of experienced tree service professionals utilize proper safety procedures to ensure both the safety of themselves and your property when removing trees. They LawnMark Tree Service TEAM members perform safety checks and review the tree removal plan.
Once the tree has been cut down and removed, we can perform stump grinding as an additional service. We can also use our skid steer and stump removal attachment to dig out roots which allows you to plant grass, plants, or another tree in the same property location.
At LawnMark Tree Service we recycle when possible to use cut trees and limbs for building material, firewood, or bark mulch chips.

If you have trees that have fallen or had limbs broken off during the high winds and winter storms in greater Cleveland....LawnMark Tree Service Team is available to provide tree removal, brush clean up, stump removal, and haul away the damaged, leaning, or trees in danger of falling on your home, car, or children's play area. A safe property inspection can be performed to look for trees that have potential to cause property damage with falling limbs, branches growing near your house or just need trimming for aesthetic beauty and tree health.
We have experienced tree climbers for dangerous trees that are over the house and can't be felled from the ground. These trees require professional tree climbers and felling specialists to avoid injury to homeowners, children, and pets in the yard. Diseased trees are especially dangerous and can rot from the inside going undetected until a strong wind storm or snow storm results in serious damage to person or property. Trimming trees is a great way to prevent "top heavy" trees from uprooting and falling on the house.
LawnMark Tree Service... for the many types of trees in greater Cleveland Ohio
LawnMark has seen an increase in dying and diseased ASH TREES that need to be removed to avoid spread to nearby trees and avoid property damage by falling tree limbs on the house.
There are five species of ash trees in Ohio, and they are found in a variety of habitats from urban street trees to upland forests to wet flat woods. Ohio had about 3.8 billion ash trees in 2003, when the emerald ash borer (EAB) was first discovered in Toledo. It spread rapidly throughout the state, and has killed ash trees everywhere. The bugs were found in Cuyahoga County in 2006.
The pest is a bright, metallic green alien-looking beetle from Asia that feeds on the living tissues of ash trees. Infested trees die within three to five years. The tell-tale sign of the infestation includes squiggled lines inside of the bark where the tree’s lifeblood had been eaten away.
American chestnuts once made up 25% of the deciduous forest in the eastern United States, but the chestnut blight destroyed the entire forest population and we are losing more species today.
The American beech has a thick gray trunk, large crowns of leaves, and triangle-shaped nuts, which provide lots of wildlife food and shelter. They naturally grow cavities used by owls, flying squirrels, and raccoons. Beeches have a parasitic plant that blooms in the fall on their roots, called ‘beech drops’ and they hold their leaves all winter long. Migratory red bats return to Ohio in the spring and nestle in the beech tree leaves and branches. American beech is an important species for sustaining the diversity of wildlife in NE Ohio. And it’s in a lot of trouble too.
"Beech bark disease (BBD) has been killing trees across the eastern U.S. for decades. It’s a two-part disease complex – an invasive insect called “beech scale” feeds on the tree’s bark, creating an entry point for an invasive fungus to infect the disturbed areas. BBD causes cankers on the tree that weaken, and often kill it. The disease has spread from its discovery point in Nova Scotia in 1932 to most of the eastern forests." Experts theorize a windblown spreading of the Beech tree, virus, Phytophthora root fungus, and mite damage.
The Holden Arboretum just east of Cleveland partnered with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to study resistant strains of American beech and planted resistant saplings in a research plot in 2006. Then something new cropped up in Northeast Ohio. Lake Metroparks Senior Staff Biologist John Pogacnik first found the new beech affliction in 2012.
“The first sign is a striped effect of the leaves,” Pogacnik said. “The darker sections look almost blistered when you look closely. As the disease progresses on small trees, all of their leaves curl up. The larger trees will be affected on the lowest leaves and then moving up."
The USFS, Ohio Division of Forestry, USDA, Ohio Department of Agriculture, and Ohio State University are all looking for answers and nobody has found anything definitive. The symptoms have been found throughout Lake County, Ashtabula County, Geauga County, and Cuyahoga County all the way to Strongsville.
The list of other things killing trees in our region is terrible: butternut canker, hemlock woolly adelgid, oak wilt, Asian longhorned beetle, ash bore disease, beech bark disease, and more.
History of Ohio trees...
Looking back to the ice age..when glaciers started receding over 10,000 years ago.
Cleveland was covered under a mile of ice and there weren't many trees.
As glaciers receded, we transitioned from ice to cool spruce and fir forests. The climate warmed, and beech and maple species moved in; a few thousand years later the climate dried a bit and oak and hickory species migrated north.
While the climate played a role in shifting species, humans also dramatically shaped the forest. About 1,000 years ago, Native Americans managed the forests with cutting and burning, resulting in dryer soils and open understories, promoting mast species like oak, hickory, walnut and other food producing trees. “The mast and fruit attracted white-tailed deer, turkey, raccoon, squirrels, and passenger pigeon, which the Natives hunted,” wrote John Riley, in The Once and Future Great Lakes Country. “In this system, humans were the key, taking both the forage and the forager. It had all the hallmarks of a robust ecological strategy.”
In the 1650s the native nations around Lake Erie collapsed due to disease and conflict. Uncropped, uncut, and unburned, the open woods, meadows and fields grew into old-growth forests. These were the dark, impenetrable, and seemingly endless woods that the European settlers found when they began to sever this land into a grid of small parcels, build roads, and clear the forest in the 1800s."
Around 80% of the Great Lakes land was forested in 1600 when aboriginal agriculture was intact. The forested percentage of Ohio is around 30% today.
Despite the dramatic clearing, we have a broad diversity of trees and forest types.
Ohio’s role in preserving genetic flexibility is important as our forests face global climate change.
Tree experts are prone to dealing with longer timelines than many other folks in the ecological sciences – which explains why dendrologists are actively preparing now for climate change.
Aesculus glabra aka the Ohio buckeye/American buckeye
“We can say with certainty that our species will change,” said Colby Sattler, Western Reserve Land Conservancy’s Urban Forestry & Natural Resources Project Manager. “Dr. Jason Grabosky of Rutgers University is a leading researcher in this important field. His modeling of change over time shows that we may see more southerly species, such as longleaf pine, moving north and here in Ohio, we may see our state tree, Ohio buckeye, move out of the region.”
Trees migrated better when we had contiguous forest over the eastern United States. Now we have more cities so the forests are not connected. Southern species could move north, but they won’t get here fast enough to compensate.
The rate of global climate change is expected to outpace nature’s ability to rebound.
We all need to start planting species now that will proliferate in 20-30 years!
LawnMark is supporting the tree industry by planting more trees and recommending that NE Ohio homeowners plant new trees after removal of any diseased or aged trees are felled.
Ohio Tree Fun FACTS:
80% of the Great Lakes land was forested in 1600 when aboriginal agriculture was intact.
The forested percentage of Ohio is around 30% today.
Ohio had 3.8 billion ash trees in 2003, when the emerald ash borer (EAB) was first discovered.
88% percent of Ohio’s forest land is owned by 345,000 private individuals and enterprises.
29% of Ohio’s family forest owners are at least 65 years old. This group controls 2 million acres of forest acreage. The majority of forest owners in Ohio are families!
That’s a whole lot of woodland ecosystem that’s likely to be parceled up, sold and turned into residential properties....so do your part an PLANT SOME TREES ON YOUR PROPERTY !
