Tree Removal

Tree Removal

Trees are an essential part of any landscape. They beautify, protect and provide necessary shade. However, when a tree becomes unhealthy or stands in the way of further development, then it may be necessary to remove it.

The decision to remove a tree isn't easy. Most people think of their trees as friendly neighbors. Unfortunately, sometimes a tree becomes diseased or threatens damage to the buildings on the property or to community infrastructure. Property owners also may consider tree removal when a tree becomes quite large and they no longer want to be financially responsible for maintaining it.

Still, it isn't always painless to consider removing a tree because they add beauty and value to residential, commercial and industrial properties. How do you know when it's time for a tree to be removed?

Making a Tree Removal Decision

The average property owner may not be able to readily identify a tree that really does need to be removed. That's why it's important to ask for the advice of an arborist. These well-trained professionals are experts when it comes to identifying issues such as failing health, pests and threats to assets that are below the tree.

An arborist will put peoples' safety before other considerations. If he believes that the tree is in danger of coming down by itself, he'll be upfront with you about the need to remove it. However, you can also count on him to give you an honest opinion regarding whether or not it may be possible to salvage the tree.

The ultimate decision is up to the customer. Trees may be removed for any number of reasons including:

  • Poor health
  • The presence of pests
  • Threats to nearby structures
  • Poor location
  • Future property development
  • Too much maintenance is required

You may have other reasons for wanting a tree to be removed. Whatever those reasons may be, it is only sensible to ask a professional to do the job for you.

An Arborist

When it comes to tree removal, it is rarely wise to just go with the service that offers a low-ball price. Many hazards to life and property are inherent components of removing trees. A service that offers a surprisingly low price typically does so because they ignore safety precautions or do not have the necessary training and experience for the job.

The result can be damage to your property that is costly and time-consuming to fix. This is why it just makes sense to only rely on an arborist to get the job done right.
