Tree Removal: When the Tree Absolutely Has to Go
Arborists do plenty of things to keep trees healthy, but there are times when there is nothing that can save one that is dying. There are also times when, healthy or not, a tree needs to be taken down. That's when it's a good idea to get a professional tree removal service to come and do the work.
The most obvious reason to hire the pros is safety. Most people do not have the training needed to ensure that a falling tree lands where it is intended to, and this greatly increases the risk of it landing on a house or a person.
Next is the amount of work that's involved in tree removal. When you're standing on the ground looking up at a tall tree, it may not seem like there'll be much to cutting it up. However, once it's down, the branches and leaves can very easily engulf an entire front yard – or more! Suddenly, you're faced not with a weekend project, but a season-long ordeal. Pros know exactly what to expect, and most importantly, they have trained crews that can turn the seemingly endless branches and leaves into mulch in a few hours to a couple of days. If you ask, they'll even stack up the big logs for you.
Not all tree removal is planned beforehand. Emergency tree removal is often needed after storms, either to get rid of trees that have already fallen or to remove ones that are tilted and ready to collapse. In this case, extra care may need to be taken to prevent building damage or personal injury. Therefore, emergency tree removal of plants that are still somewhat standing should always be done by professionals.
