When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?

Sometimes a tree gets to a point where trimming and pruning it are no longer adequate and it no longer fits in with your garden or it becomes necessary to have it removed before it causes untold damage to your property or injures someone. Some of the main causes for tree removal are

  • The foliage of the tree has lost its visual appeal due to disease, or bugs destroying its limbs and leaves.
  • Limbs, branches and leaves have grown too close to your buildings and are now blocking the sunlight from coming into your premises, and causing moisture build up on the walls and roof due to blocking the sun from them.
  • The tree has been battered by a storm and sustained some structural damage. The tree could now cause damage to your property or injure someone with falling branches or it could completely fall over, causing even more serious damage.
  • You are wanting to change the landscaped outlook of your garden and the old tree does not fit in with the aesthetics of your new look garden.
  • The tree’s roots are starting to pose a threat to your property’s foundation or to the underground pipe work.

Using Chainsaw for Tree Removal

Felling The Tree Yourself

Sometime people who have a tree that they want removing attempt to remove the tree themselves or they use unqualified contractors. Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous job and should only be carried out by tree surgeons because:

  • If the roots are not removed correctly then the tree can grow again.
  • Old tree stumps which have not been removed correctly are not just an eyesore they are also potentially dangerous.
  • Our tree surgeons know how to use the latest equipment to help them climb and access difficult areas.
  • Using the wrong tools or techniques when dismantling a tree can cause untold damages to your property or even severely injure someone.

Tree Maintenance

Regular pruning helps to improve the growth of a developing tree and it also corrects the shape of mature ones. Every cut that we make to a tree has a lasting effect, which can be good or bad. This is why a professional maintenance plan for your trees is a wise investment.

A Tree Stump Removal Chemical Can Save You Money

You are thinking about hiring a tree service to cut down a large branch hanging from a tree in your front yard. The tree you like. Who does not like trees? The branch you hate. Not only is it a safety as hazard high winds could knock it into your living room window but it blocks the sunlight from getting into your house. What company do you go with and what do you look for?

We live in a sue happy society and I would make certain that due to the inherent risks any tree service I would hire have a general liability insurance policy and a workers compensation policy. The liability insurance policy should be at least $1,000,000. This is to protect you and them. If you need to make a claim (hopefully you will not but you never know) you know they are covered. If they mess up your neighbor's yard or cable wires you know they are covered for that as well. The work their employees are doing is dangerous as the heights they have to climb to cut branches can be tens of feet high. If a person falls the workers compensation policy kicks in. Without it, and with a good personal injury lawyer, they can come after you because the accident happened on your property.

Ask if the owner and his subsequent employees have been trained a licensed through the state apprenticeship program. The state of Washington it takes 4,000 hours and 144 hours of classroom time to get a "Power Line Clearance & Tree Trimming" apprenticeship license. You want to make certain the people cutting your branches have this. The course trains people in safety first but also teaches them about various tree types and how to cut them without damaging them. Again, considering how demanding and high risk this activity is you want people who are doing it for you to be fully trained to do it right.

Get three quotes from three different tree service companies. When you call a company like this they will send an estimator out to bid the job. Make sure you get them to put everything in writing and exactly what you are getting for the money you are spending. When this happens you can make accurate comparisons. Note this: the cheapest bids are not always the best way to go. And, extremely low bids may give you a clue that they do not have all the insurance they should. Tree service companies pay some of the highest insurance rates in the country and this businesses have to pass a lot of those costs on to their customers.

Look online for reviews about a tree service you are considering doing business with. If they have been around for several years they will have some sort of reputation. You need to find out what they reputation is. Is it good or is it bad? Have they produced substandard work? Have they overcharged or did not do what what agreed upon? Online reviews of a particular tree service will tell you this.

Follow these suggestions and you should be able to weed the bad tree cutting companies from the good ones.

People take out trees for a number of reasons - as a landscaping requirement, if they are precariously reaching the electric lines or if they are dead. Whatever the reason may be, calling the experts to do the job is the best way to go about this task.

Though you can easily chop down the tree with a chainsaw, you may lack the knowledge on how to do it properly. Cutting down a tree and removing the stump require the experience of stump removal professionals. If you're not convinced, then let's break down the advantages and disadvantages of doing the task yourself versus hiring the experts.

Doing It Yourself

You will need to invest in the right equipment. This project will call for a shovel or garden mattock, a chain saw, a drill, a wheelbarrow and a gas-powered stump grinder. The grinder will automatically set you back a couple of thousands of dollars. If you choose to rent, you need to shell out $100-$200 per day, depending on the size of the machine.

If this is your first time to use a grinder, you need to spend at least a couple of hours to read the manual and learn how to operate it properly. And since you don't really do this kind of job, the task may take longer than usual and the end result may not be acceptable. When you're not satisfied with your work, you'll probably end up hiring an expert, thus spending more.

Hiring The Experts

Getting the services of a tree stump removal specialist will cost you a maximum of $150, depending on the number of stumps you want to remove and the its diameter. If you have more than one tree stump that you want to take out, the company can offer you a good deal. Normally, you will be charged $100 for the first stump, and about $40 for each succeeding stumps.

Because you hired a legit company to do this, they are fully equipped with all the things that they need to get the job done. You don't have to bother with finding and buying machines and tools. And since they have been doing this for a very long time, they are experienced enough to know the most efficient and effective way to completely take out the tree stump.

When you consider all these things, it makes more sense to get the services of an expert stump grinding company. It's practical, cost-effective and less time consuming.
