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.

Tree Trimming And Pruning Myths

For those unsure what it costs to remove a tree, the overall size of the tree is a major factor in the cost of removal. Trees that grows enormous in length and width for instance pine and red oak is going to have a high removal cost. Many companies will charge differently, however, the cost will probably be $500 or somewhat higher. This cost shouldn't exceed $1000 for each tree. Medium sized trees are ones that will grow from 30-60 feet high such as black gum and Crabapple trees. The price of tree cutting will be around $200 and $400. With smaller trees i.e. those growing 30 feet and below, the removal fees are from $120.

There are numerous signs that you can check to determine that the tree trunk is decaying as well. If there's red dust along the bottom of the tree, it might be an indication that your tree is decaying. If your trunk is decaying, you will see bugs and mushrooms growing throughout the bottom of the tree. Insects and fungus will feed on dead and rotting matter and their presence is undoubtedly an indication that the tree has some dead matter. You may also inspect the trunk for any visible signs of decay. Dead tree bark, wounds and discolored areas are all negative signs of a rotting tree. Some could have significant cracks that you can actually see inside the trunk. Hollowed out trunks may be a clear sign that the trunk is bad so this normally requires the tree to get removed fast enough before it may cause any harm to your building. You will also see some weak trees that are connected to the floor by some weakened roots and should be removed soon enough.

If you want to remove trees and you just don't know how much it will cost you, you will need to have a rough estimate to ensure that you are not overcharged. Removal cost for a small tree is normally $8 each foot. Therefore if you want to remove a small tree that is 20 feet high, the estimated tree removal cost is $8 multiplied by 20. Therefore, the tree removal cost will be around $160. If you've got a medium tree whose height is 50 feet high, the cost of removal will probably be $9 multiplied by 50. Therefore, the price of removing this tree will probably be close to $450. If you have a big tree that's 90 feet tall, the estimated cost will be $10 multiplied by 90. This will provide you with a projected tree removal price of $900.

Choosing the right tree removal service is important to make certain you as well as your property are well protected. Therefore, you need to ensure that you make a good choice of the tree removal service. You'll want to go for a respected company to begin this work. To find a reputable company, you could get referrals through friends that has used this kind of service before. You can even check from the internet to what other folks have to say about different tree removal companies. Even though it is very important to think about cost, the main key to consider will be the quality of service first. You will need to ensure that the tree removal service you opt for is fully registered and has taken the appropriate insurance policy. Deciding on a good company will assure that your odds of any damages for the duration of tree removal are reduced.

What Can A Tree Service Do?

cutting down a tree

Whether you have had trees cut down as part of a landscaping project, because of storm damage or due to a disease, removing the leftover stump is not an easy task. Often, the tree service that cut down your tree does not offer stump removal. Make sure that during your contract negotiations that you ask if their service includes the stump removal to avoid any misunderstandings.

It is possible to rent a stump grinder from an equipment rental company and take care of the stump yourself. But if you are not experienced with this type of job, it is not a good idea. The equipment can be very dangerous if not used properly. This is a job that you should take off your to-do list and hand over to an expert.

Stumps can be unsightly and can make an otherwise well-maintained yard look unkempt. They can also be difficult to mow around and create a hazard. Take the time to ask the appropriate questions when you receive your estimate to make sure that your needs will be met and that you understand what services are covered. To achieve the best results, hire a professional stump removal and tree service that is insured and well-recommended.

Tree Removal: Know How Much This Service Costs

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.
