Removing Saguaro Cactus in Arizona
Although landowners, including residents and businesses, have the right to remove or destroy any native plants on their property, including protected species like the saguaro cactus, must first notify the Arizona Department of Agriculture and obtain a special permit. You can download application forms on the Department website and submit them in person or by mail to the nearest office for verification and processing. Notification must be made 20 to 60 days prior to the destruction of any saguaro cacti on your property.
Whatever the case may be, Jose can help you. Our services are affordable and done right. We help you choose the best method to remove a saguaro from your yard or property.
The thick, waxy, branching arms of the Saguora cactus symbolize the Arizona lifestyle and desert South West where this impressive species of cacti thrive.
The Saguaro is a protected species that can grow to be 30 feet or more. These frost tolerant cacti prefer rocky soil and good drainage. You won’t find these cacti in areas outside of Arizona, because they require the summer rainfall during the monsoon season to survive.
Diseases and Infections
Diseases and infections can be a problem with Saguaro. If you have a sick or dying Saguaro, the chances of it falling down are high. If you suspect that you have a diseased Saguaro cactus on your property, or if your Saguaro has already fallen, contact Jose for an inspection and removal quote.
Did you know there are laws protecting the Saguaros Cactus? It is a felony crime to damage and/ or cut down a Saguaro. If someone is caught violating this law can result in a 25-year prison sentence. Permits and Tags are required for any modifications even on your personal property.
