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.

Tree Removal Costs: The Things That Need To Be Considered

You can be in business for yourself, if you start your own stump grinding business. You can do stump grinding part time, or full time. A stump grinding machine is basically a big grinding machine that you put over a tree stump and grind it down to a pulp. It is like a big meat grinder, you hold the machine over the tree stump, and it grinds the stump into a pulp or saw dust type material.

Lots of home owners cut down trees in their yards, and it's very difficult to dig up a tree stump, as the roots usually go way down, and all over under the ground. Most stump grinding companies, charge by the diameter. But you can charge any way you like, you can charge by the stump, so that if they have more than one stump to grind, you can give them a discount.

Call around and inquire about prices for grinding down a tree stump in your town. If you call the competition, that way you will have a pretty good idea what they are charging for your area, and then what you should charge. You can put your tree stump grinder either in the back of a pick up truck, or you can use a trailer and put it in the back also.

Make sure you have signs on your vehicle, that way people in the neighborhood can get your telephone number, so they can call you to do their tree stump grinding work. Try to network with some landscaping companies that do landscaping, but don't offer tree stump removal. Offer them a commission for any jobs they send to you. You can also make up a flier to mail out to many lawn maintenance and landscapers, and let them know you grind stumps, and you will give them a cut, for any jobs they give to you. If just a few of them send you jobs on a regular basis, will get you a lot of jobs.

You really want to go the route of networking you stump grinding business with other landscapers, to build up your business. Later you can hire others to take the stump grinder out and grind stumps for you, while you add more stump grinders or other landscape jobs, to grow your business even more.

Tree and Stump Removal Cost - Making Your Estimates

trimming tree branches

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.

4 Things to Look for In Your Tree Removal Estimate

Trees are beautiful things, but there are lots of times a tree needs to be removed. Either the tree is dead, diseased or is simply in the way of whatever landscaping or building plans you've got in mind. There are a few ways to have a tree removed, but the safest, sanest way to do it is to have a professional tree removal service do the work. Not only are they professionals, but they have insurance in case something does go wrong. Fortunately, there is little chance of that happening with a professional company.

The first step in the process is to have them come out and give you an estimate on the cost. There are a few things you'll want to watch for when they give you an estimate to ensure they are a top tier company that will protect you while completing the job.

  • The first part of the estimate will be limb removal. This will have to be done in most cases, especially if the tree that has to be removed is close to a structure.
  • The next part is felling the tree. This can be as simple as a straight drop in a fairly open area, but it may actually involve cutting the tree down in sections and a crane may be needed to lower the pieces as they're cut. This technique is necessary when there's no way to drop the tree due to structures or power and phone lines.
  • After that will be an estimate on stump removal. Most of the time this will be necessary if you're removing the tree as a function of building or landscaping. However, any stump can be unsightly and professional companies will use a grinder to cut it below the surface of the ground so you can cover it with topsoil or turf.
  • Last will be disposal of the tree. This may be eliminated if you're using the tree for firewood and the mulch around your yard as landscaping material. However, professional companies have resources to have the tree recycled.

You'll also want to check and make sure they state they're insured. Even under the best of circumstances, things can happen and professional tree removal companies are well insured. When you've got to have a tree removed, take your time and find the company that has the equipment and credentials to take care of the job properly. You'll be glad you did.
