Tree Contractors West Yorkshire

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.

When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?

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.

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.

Actual Estimates on Tree and Stump Removal Cost

Do you know if one of those stunning trees in your yard is ready to fall when the next storm blows through? Unfortunately, this is a very real threat as falling trees or limbs can injure you, your children or your home. While tree removal is a last resort, it's still a good idea to regularly inspect the trees on your yard for hazards and know how to recognize a tree that needs to be removed. Once you understand these signs, you'll know when it's time to call a tree company.

Annual Tree Inspections are Important

At least once per year, inspect all of your trees for signs of disease, decay or structural problems. You'll also need to check the trees after each severe storm, as large trees can easily fall if their anchor roots are damaged or the ground becomes too soaked. If you catch the problem in time, a tree service company can remove it before serious damage occurs.

How to Inspect Your Trees

So, how should you inspect your trees for problems? Start by looking at the overall condition of the tree. Trees that are sick usually have off-color leaves or red pine needles. If the tree has green on the crown, it may still be hazardous or sick as the branches or trunk can be structurally weak due to disease or rot. Use binoculars to look at the high branches and try to spot any broken limbs or weak branch unions, which means the limbs are ready to fall at any time.

6 High-Risk Issues to Look For

Now, let's move on to identifying some of the biggest problems you need to look for. All of these problems represent a major safety hazard and may indicate it's time for a tree remova specialist to pay a visit.

Cracked bark. If your tree has bark that's starting to crack, this is a sign that the tree is sick or dying. Call a tree service company if you notice 2+ cracks in the same spot or very deep cracking.

Weak branch unions. Check how well the branches appear to be attached to the tree, as weak unions have no integrity and the branches may come falling down. This is a common issue with elm and maple.

Tree cankers. These sunken spots in the bark or areas where the bark is completely missing may either be a wound or a sign of disease.

Strange shape. Does your tree have a weird shape that seems poorly formed? These trees may require removal because they lack structural integrity.

Decay. Serious decay is a problem and you can usually spot it if there are mushrooms growing on your tree or right at the base. Dead branches. Dead wood is unpredictable and very brittle. Strong winds or a storm can easily send these branches crashing down onto your family or your home. Tree trimming is necessary to remove these hazards.

Common Tree Issues There are a number of tree diseases that are common throughout most tree species. Here's a look at some of them, along with symptoms you should look for. Most of these diseases require removal. Tree removal sometimes requires a permit so make sure you have this in order before you have the tree felled.

Oak Leaf Blister. This disease affects oak trees, causing the leaves to look blistered on the upper surface with depressions on the underside. The leaves will eventually start to curl and leaves may drop prematurely. This disease typically starts in the spring and spores are then spread in the rain or wind. This disease is treated with a fungicide.

Tubakia Leaf Spot. This disease causes brown spots to appear on the foliage, along with cankers on the twigs. Red oaks are particularly prone to catching this fungal infection and the best way to address it is to increase air flow on the tree.

Bacterial Leaf Scorch. This disease leaves red or yellow borders and makes leaves appear scorched. It's spread by insects and close contact to other trees and infected trees usually require removal.

Armillaria Root Rot. Finally, this fungi infects the roots of the tree and may be hard to detect unless you see mushrooms growing on the tree's base. It causes the crown to die, stunts the tree's growth and eventually kills the tree, requiring removal.

Remember, inspecting your trees annually is an important task for you to do. If your tree loses its leaves right before it gets them and right after it loses them are great times to inspect. Even if they don't lose their leaves those two times are usually in the beginning of Spring and the end of Fall.

Size Of The Trees

The size of the trees to be removed is the first factor that's considered when tree removal companies solve for the costs of the services that they're going to offer. Trees can grow really high with some reaching up to 60 to 100 feet high. These trees include hardwoods, walnuts, and red oak. In general, most companies charge $500 and more but won't go beyond a thousand dollars for these trees. The other range lies between 30 t0 60 feet high. The tree removal cost for these trees range from $200 and above. Smaller trees only grow up to a max of 30 feet high such as the Mulberry tree. Getting these trees removed will cost you an average of $125 and above.

Extra Costs

After a tree is cut down, a stump is left behind. You might want to get rid of this as well. Stump grinding is done to remove tree stumps and will cost you extra. Aside from this, companies may also charge extra fees for pulling the logs and chipping the branches.

Take a close look at all of these things so that you can have a really good understanding as to how the services that you're going to get are priced.

Tree Trimming - Is Your Tree Diseased?

crown reduction

Most people hear about tree trimming and pruning and they think they are the same thing. However, the professionals that work in the field know that is not the case. There are different procedures which are used for each one of those things. Both pruning and trimming are extremely important to the life and look of your trees because they help with the health as well as to give a warm feeling to your home. Tree trimming is mostly like grooming or maintenance in that it will focus mainly on the tree's outer appearance. When you are looking to shape your trees in order to make them look better and take out the branches that seem out of place, you are thinking of trimming. Tree pruning, on the other hand has to do mostly with the overall health of the tree.

More On Tree Trimming

Tree trimming services may be about grooming your trees but you should not think of it as something that just anyone can do. Though the trimming services will have to do more with appearances arborists will be able to look for other things that may need care in your tree. If a branch is too heavy, for example, they will remove it for safety reasons and work the trimming around those removed branches. They will also be able to find early signs of disease and while they will not be taking care of it while trimming, they will inform you of the problem so that you can hire the pruning service.

More On Tree Pruning

As stated earlier, tree pruning services are mostly for the health of your tree. If a problem such as an infestation can be taken care of without the removal of branches, then arborists will do that. If the removal of leaves and branches is necessary then it will be done in a safe manner, trying to save as much of the tree as possible. The professional doing the pruning will be able to see how bad the problem is and how drastic the measures taken should be. While in most cases there will not need to be an extreme pruning done, it all depends on how advanced the problem is.

When To Get The Services

If you require tree trimming or other similar services, it is important to know when you should get them. Trimming can be done in the late winter and early spring so that the trees flourish and look great by the time the summer comes around. Pruning, on the other hand, is best left for the middle of the winter as it is a lot easier to look at which branches should be taken care of. Because the temperatures hardly ever reach freezing in the area, the appointments for pruning are almost always kept. The amount of time spent on your property by a professional will depend on how big the property is and how many trees need the service.

Tree Removal Costs: The Things That Need To Be Considered

If you have a large tree at home that's starting to be really bothersome in your yard that you want to get rid of, you are in need of a good tree removal service. There are lots of tree service companies nowadays that you can choose from but you need to know that not all of them have the ability to do the job well.

Before you decide to get a tree removal service, cost is one of the most important things that you need to take into consideration. Let's determine how much money you need to set aside for your budget if you want to get a tree service.

First, you need to take a look at the situation that you have. Determine how many trees you need or want to get removed; where they're situated; and if there's nothing surrounding them. If your trees are located at the middle of your yard and there's no structure located near them, the cost of the service that you're going to get will surely be a lot cheaper as compared to if your trees are located near power lines.

8. Amount of manpower needed

Things That You Need To Look Into When You Hire A Tree Service Company

1. Look for at least 2 to 5 companies in your area. Make sure that they're both licensed and certified in your state.

2. Take a look at reviews online and read the comments of other people on how well they do their services.

3. The prices of tree services vary from one company to another. Take note that it doesn't mean that if a certain company offers cheap services, it's already a good choice to go for. Get a reputable company that's going to give you your money's worth.
