Essential Rental Equipment for Tree Trimming and Removal

Tree trimming and removal is a crucial task for any contractor involved in landscaping or maintenance of outdoor spaces. And when it comes to equipment for this job, renting is the smartest way to go. That’s where Vandalia Rental comes in. We offer a wide range of equipment, including the tools to help you do the job right. In this blog, we’ll dive deeper into the essential rental equipment needed for tree trimming removal.

Essential Tree Trimming and Removal Equipment


The backbone of any tree cutting operation, chainsaws are essential for trimming branches and felling trees. Typically, a chainsaw with a shorter bar around 14” and smaller is enough for maintenance, trimming, pruning, and cutting down broken tree limbs. On the other hand, cutting down small trees, thick branches, and cleaning up storm damage will need a longer bar around 16”-20” to make the job easier and safer.

Pole saws

For branches that are too high for a standard chainsaw, a pole saw is especially the tool to have. They are used for trimming landscaping that extends much higher than your natural reach. Rather than using a ladder, use the pole saw to reach higher without creating a safety concern. Use a pole saw to remove or prune tree branches or clean up the edges of bushes and shrubbery.

Wood chippers

Once you’ve removed the branches and smaller limbs, a wood chipper can help you process the waste into the perfect mulch for landscaping. Our wood chippers are powerful and easy to use, ideal for smaller to medium tree trimming and removal jobs.

Stump grinders

Removing stumps can be a truly backbreaking chore if done by hand. With a stump grinder (aka stump cutter), the job is much easier. Our grinders can take care of any size stump and leave the area ready for new growth.

Towable lifts

In some cases, the job may require accessing high branches, and that’s where towable lifts come into play. These can be rented to give you a lift to reach even the tallest of trees safely.

Dump Trailers

Once you’ve chipped the debris, you need to transport it away from the job site. Vandalia Rental has a selection of dump trailers that make it easy to move large amounts of material.

Safety equipment

Safety should be your top priority when performing tree trimming and removal. We have all the necessary safety equipment you need to protect yourself and your team. We offer cones, barricades with light, arrow boards, and caution signs ensuring that you have the necessary assistance to stay safe on the job.
