SAFE CACTUS REMOVAL IN CHANDLER
Some cactus can grow to be incredibly heavy, large, and pose a significant risk to the houses, fences, and vehicles they are near.

For property owners that no longer want their Prickly Pear Cactus, Barrel Cactus, or if your Saguaro Cactus has become unstable and is threatening to fall on your home our team can safely remove them.

SAGUARO CACTUS REMOVAL
The Saguaro cactus is one of the Southwest’s most iconic and valued cacti. They can live for well over 100 years, grow to towering heights, and literally weigh tons. In suburban or urban areas the Saguaro gets a lot more water than it would in the desert and the top half can grow much faster than the roots. When this happens they become top heavy and become unstable. A leaning or unstable Saguaro is a serious danger to people and property due to their weight and height. Our team knows the right way to remove these unsafe giants in a safe and controlled way that ensures the safety of everyone, and your property.
When you see a Saguaro that is leaning you should have it inspected. There are many situations where they can be saved with 2×4 bracing. We save every cactus we can but if it is beyond saving we will safely remove it and haul it away. Don’t risk your safety or the safety of your home, property, or vehicle by leaving an unsafe Saguaro that might just be days away from falling.
COMMON CACTUS PROBLEMS
The two most common reasons that people have cacti removed are when they are dead or dangerous. If your cactus has died from pests or disease it is an eyesore and poses a threat to fall. A cactus that has over grown its roots also is a serious threat to homes and can cause significant damage.
Cactus rot is a problem for some property owners in the valley. They are low maintenance and durable but do need infrequent watering, well-draining soil, and more sun than many other types of plants. Cactus rot is typically caused by fungal disease, bacteria, and insects such as the whitefly. Signs that your cactus has rot is when it’s mushy or soft.
CACTUS PESTS & DISEASES
There are some insects and airborne disease which can make your cactus sick or kill it, like bacterial necrosis. Many homeowners don’t know there is something wrong until it’s too late to save a cactus as the cactus appears healthy to the casual observer. When a cactus is too sick or is dead we safely remove it to protect other plants and free up room for something new.
Cacti are native to arid desert environments and when they are grown in our commercial or residential landscaping they get a lot more water than they would in nature. The sprinklers and drip lines other plants need to survive in the heat of Arizona many times deliver much more water than cactus are used to getting and they grow much faster than they would in nature. That means that the cactus is growing bigger and heavier than the roots can handle. This makes they unstable and many times unsafe.
DANGEROUS TO PEOPLE & PETS
There are some common varieties of cacti that we have in our landscaping which can be dangerous for young children and pets. If you have cactus that are either unstable or have certain varieties of cacti which can harm people you might consider removal. Some small types of common cactus like barrel cactus have spines that cause wounds which are painful and take weeks to heal if they are fallen into, brushed against, or stepped on.
TYPES OF CACTUS
Cacti are some of the most visually stunning focal points of many residential and commercial landscapes. Common types of cactus featured in Arizona landscapes include barrel cactus, saguaro cactus, and the infamous jumping or cholla cactus. When you have dangerous, unstable, or invasive types of cactus, we will help you remove them.
As one of the world’s largest cacti and Arizona’s most iconic cactus the Saguaro adds character to every landscape. These cactus are capable of growing to towering heights and with the right care can live over 150 years. A Saguaro grows on average about an inch every year, so when you see taller examples they are easily decades old. When these giants grow too quickly or are not braced they can become unsafe and pose a threat to property and safety.
PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS
A favorite of many Chandler landscapes is the Prickly Pear Cactus which has an asymmetrical and fun look. As a naturally drought tolerant plant the Prickly Pear is popular in both residential and commercial landscapes. These cacti grow very quickly and with detachable spines they can be dangerous. This makes them less than ideal for properties or yards which are common play ares for young children or pets.
Arizona is famous for cactus and one of the most famous is the Cholla or “jumping cactus”. These cactus feature pods which are so easily detached that people believe the cactus “jumped” onto them. The spines or needles are hooked and incredibly painful and difficult to remove. There are parts of the valley where the Cholla cactus is so common in nature that they are spreading naturally into neighborhoods. If you have unwanted Cholla in your landscape we will safely remove them to protect you, your family, and neighbors.
SAN PEDRO CACTUS
The San Pedro Cactus grows quickly and has numerous columns. Originally from the Andes Mountains of South America it has been grown all over the wold. As a common sight in many residential and commercial landscapes the San Pedro adds wonderful visual interest. This species of cactus does contain some chemicals which are potentially illegal and harmful to posses. This means they are not always ideal or safe for all settings and landscapes.
Barrel cacti come in a wide variety of fun and small options and are very common across the valley. The maximum size of a barrel cactus is usually about 3 feet wide and 3 feet high. With colorful flowers in spring that are orange or yellow they add great visual interest to a landscape. While they are beautiful they can be unsafe for pets and younger children. The spines on a barrel cactus cause what is called a “dirty wound” and are painful. They can take weeks to fully heal, which makes them less than ideal for areas with pets and kids.
