Tree Removal Contractors

Dec 15

Here are five things to keep in mind when tree removal is being done.

Tree removal can be dangerous and requires specialized equipment as well as highly-trained individuals.

An arborist can inspect the tree and determine if it needs to be removed. To ensure that you make the right decision for your tree and yourself, you should read the following tips before you hire a contractor.

Relocation should be the last resort

Removal should not be considered an option in many cases. Trees that are well-maintained add value and beauty to your property. They also help local ecology.

Some people are not certified arborists or specialists in tree care. A contractor may suggest the removal of trees when there are other options.

Many problems can be diagnosed and treated by tree specialists, which is often more expensive than cutting down the tree.

Expert Tree Removal Contractors

When hiring a contractor, compare apples to apples. There are many ways to remove a tree and the costs can vary. Arborists have extensive training to safely remove trees without causing damage to your home or landscaping.

Removal can be costly and complicated depending on where the tree is located. The cost of removing a tree from its base and allowing it to fall naturally will be less, but your property could be more damaged.

There can be a demand for qualified tree professionals after heavy storms. Do not let people offer tree work to you. Only certified arborists or other degreed foresters practice this.

You and your assets will be protected if you hire a tree professional that closely follows industry safety standards.

Regulations for Tree Removal

Red tape, green trees. Although a tree is an integral part of a homeowner's property, the homeowner can also decide to take down a tree. Tree removal can be regulated by cities and counties. Often, permits and inspections are required before the tree can be taken down.

Some homeowners' associations might insist that all removals be approved. Reputable tree service firms will help homeowners obtain the permits and coordinate a schedule to remove the trees.

Stump and Lumber Removal

Professional tree companies can remove stumps, so your yard is free from a long-standing eyesore. Double-check that the stump removal is included in your estimate before you submit it.

Many companies offer homeowners a variety of options for lumber. You have two options: the tree can be chopped down to size for firewood, or it can be left at the home and fed into a chipper.

Ask your professional to discuss the various options and associated costs.

Trees on a Neighbor's Property

A tree or limb that falls can cause damage to property and other properties. Experts recommend that you request a certified letter to notify your neighbor that a tree is being removed.

The letter could be helpful during an insurance claim process if the tree causes damage to your property.
