A word to the wise: when you need a tree taken out of your landscape be sure to call a tree removal service. There are several reasons to call in a professional when deciding to take a tree down. It is a complicated job that takes special training to accomplish safely and correctly. Dropping a large tree may not seem so difficult but if there are buildings, power lines, or roads, it changes into a complicated job. A tree removal service that is reputable will have certifications, licenses, bonds and insurance, should something unforeseen happen.
Often times the expense of tree removal seems out of reach. There are communities that offer the service for free if the tree is posing a threat to a property. There are also some communities that will give assistance in payment to have a tree removal service come in.
A tree that is not removed correctly can grow back from the stump that is left behind. A professional tree removal service will take the stump also as part of their service. The hole that is left behind when a tree and roots have been removed needs to be filled in. It pays to have a professional come in and take care of the tree that has to go.
There is a plethora of reasons why a tree may need to be removed. The tree might be causing an obstruction where a septic tank is located. Trees that are planted close to the foundation of a building can cause the foundation to become unstable and crack. There are times when trees are planted too closely together and neither tree is healthy, because there are not enough nutrients available for one of the trees. Some trees have berries or nuts that drop in areas where they become unsightly. A reputable tree removal service can provide all the equipment and experienced professionals that would be needed for the job.
Tree service companies will evaluate the tree and assess the location. They will note if there are close buildings, power lines or streets that may be affected when it comes time to take the tree down. Often in metropolitan areas, a permit will be needed to take down a tree that will block a sidewalk, street or driveway. Tree removal specialists will often have the permits required as part of their service.
