Trees are a great addition to any landscape, but even with proper maintenance sometimes trees die or grow in ways that they become hazards to your property. Eventually, there may come a time when you have a tree that needs to be removed. You may be able to remove small trees yourself, but once they get taller than you, it becomes tricky and potentially dangerous. Tree removal is more often than not a job best left to professionals. They have the expertise to do the job right, and they have the tools to get it done safely.
Getting Up There
If the tree that needs to be removed is shorter than you or short enough that you can climb it, you likely wouldn’t be calling in a professional. Most tree removal can’t be done just from the ground, however. Workers need to be able to get up into very high branches to prune and cut limbs so that eventually the trunk can be brought down safely. Ladders will play a part, of course, but for very large trees your tree removal company should also have an arial lift device that can accommodate the height of the tree.
Navigating Tight Corners
Sometimes trees need to come down not because they’re dead or dying but because they’ve grown in a way that threatens some aspect of the property, such as roots that grow under the patio and begin to cause cracks. Or sometimes the issue is that the tree has grown too big for the area where it was planted. This makes it even more difficult to remove them. These trees potentially pose a hazard when they’re felled because they could fall on and damage your home, fence, or some other part of your landscaping. The big issue becomes fitting equipment into the tight space between the tree and your fence or house so that the tree can be felled safely. Before you decide on a tree removal professional, make sure they have equipment that can fit, like cranes or lifts that fold down to fit into tight spaces.
Every tree removal situation is unique, so don’t settle for one-size-fits-all answers from your tree removal professional. Make sure that they have the specialty equipment needed to do the job efficiently and safely.
