Tree Removal

Tree removal involves a lot more than you might think. There are some things to consider when planning the proper removal of trees or several trees. First and foremost is safety. It is imperative that you have trees removed by a professional to prevent personal injury or damage to property and structures.

Aside from the potential hazards or attempting tree removal on your own, we have some suggested considerations we think are important when planning removal. These considerations can save you time, money, and headaches.

When Tree Removal Is Necessary

While this may seem totally subjective, there are some factors that you might not have considered. If a tree is diseased or dying, it is definitely time to consider removal. Skeletons of trees in the forest may be interesting to look at but should never be a part of your landscape. Dead trees can lead to branches and debris falling away that can injure people or damage property and structures.

Conversely, a tree that looks dead or is diseased may just need a little care and maintenance to return to its full glory, health, and potential. The only way to be certain is to schedule a consultation with a qualified Arborist. There are plenty of reason to keep a healthy tree on your property so don’t jump to conclusions and chop it down without first consulting a professional.

Tree Removal & Safety

Tree limbs and entire trees are extremely heavy and when cut away can present unpredicted injury or destruction to private property. This can lead to expensive repair costs to your vehicle, home, or other structures on your property. Your insurance may or may not cover the damage from such activities so don’t start cutting under any assumptions.

Personal injury is another undesirable risk when cutting or removing trees from your property. We don’t need to spell out the potential consequences of disregarding this warning as we are certain you can imagine this for yourself. Please do not attempt tree removal on your own.

Qualified Arborists and Tree Services are equipped with the proper safety equipment and trained in proper safety procedures to minimize risks to themselves, ground personnel, bystanders and personal property. This is a very important point to keep in mind when planning a tree removal project or undertaking.

Proper Tree Removal Matters

Improper removal of trees can do more than making your landscape an eyesore. Simply cutting down a tree and leaving its base or roots in the ground can and will cause underground erosion as the stump decays and rots away. By the time you discover this for yourself, you could find that there is drastic damage to the foundation of your home or other potential safety hazards when discovered by a person or pet falling into it.

Hiring a trained and certified Arborist ensures that once a tree has been removed, all steps will be taken to prevent any side effects. This will help prevent adverse impacts to the property and landscape. Sometimes heavy equipment may be required to perform proper tree removal. Decisions about equipment and machinery should be made by professional Arborists and Tree Services, like New Leaf Arboriculture.
