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.

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.

Stump Removal and Grinding Services

Tree pruning specialists always emphasize how important pruning is to a tree in different aspects of its life. Arborists work on pruning because it will help trees better withstand storms, grow healthy and avoid infections from bugs and disease. There is a difference between pruning and trimming procedures in that trimming is mostly for aesthetic reasons while pruning is mostly about the tree's overall health. Despite those differences you will hear several myths that have to do with tree pruning. Some are so widespread that people believe them and never question how much truth there is behind those statements. Here are the top common myths that you will hear about pruning.

Myth #1: Trees Grow Fine Without Pruning

Myth #4: Spring Pruning

No matter what services you are looking for, be it pruning, trimming or other services the professionals will be glad to address myths regarding spring pruning. The idea is that some trees like birches and maples bleed out when cuts are done early in the spring. The type of bleeding that you see from pruning is usually not important to the overall health of the tree. There are, of course, a few exceptions but your trees can be pruned at any time of the year. The best times to prune your trees are after its flowering period and while the tree is in dormancy.

Tree Trimming - Is Your Tree Diseased?

If you are planning on removing stumps in your land and you want to have a rough estimate of the price you will pay, know that stump removal cost depends on the type of service you want to hire. It is also dependent on the obstacles and difficulties faced during the removing process. The kind of equipment used for the service will also be factored into the entire price you pay. Other additional concerns include the number of branches, the width and height of the trees or stumps. And seeking for the services of a registered professional will give anyone the impression that the charges will be quite expensive.

Stump removal cost will depend on the size of the stumps and also the type of soil fund in the area. For a pruning service, the factors to consider include the age of the tree, the species, how frequent it will be carried out and the location of the stumps. Generally, cutting down mature and large trees will be in the range of $400 to $1000 per tree depending on the size and specie of the tree. The larger trees are usually around 70 to 100 feet. Some of these trees include elms, American Ash, Red Oak, Walnuts, Black Locust and ancient maples. But the smaller trees which are measuring about 25 feet are usually less expensive and range from $100 to $400. Some medium size trees like Black Gum and Crabapple can be charged around $300 to $800. Trees that are old and dried out are always less expensive to cut down because not much work is needed to chop them down.

However, there are extra charges that will be made if you want some additional services. For trunk hauling service, you will be expected to pay around $300. If you want to grind the stumps, fees for smaller stumps are around $70 while you will be paying close to $250 for larger stumps. There is an hourly charge for branch chipping. Usually, you are likely going to pay from $60 to $140 an hour.

Calling a professional to remove your stumps could be very expensive but there are some ways to reduce the stump removal cost. Ensure that you ask around for professionals and get several price quotes from them. One of the key ways to reduce the overall price you pay is to do regular trimming. Remember that the price you pay for the service depends so much on the size of the tree, so do not allow the tree to grow to a size that will require you to call professionals to do it for you.
