Do I need a tree crane while performing any tree maintenance? Safety is always a huge concern when dealing with any tree removal. Although not required for every type of removal, tree cranes are used in certain situations where traditional tree removal practices would be deemed unsafe or create additional hazards for homeowners, arborists, or the property. Let us take a look at a couple of scenarios when a crane is required and why tree removal experts trust in this kind of technique so much for tree care.
Utilizing Cranes for Tree Upkeep and Maintenance
Although most crane services required for trees are for the purpose of removal, there are also a few times when correct tree maintenance is not possible unless a crane is utilized correctly. For taller trees that need pruning, a crane can lift up the arborist to the height of the canopy and provide them with a place to cut limbs to fall safely. Also, using a tree crane can be useful for any tall tree inspections so professionals can better assess a tree’s overall well-being and structural integrity despite its height.
Utilizing Cranes for Correct Tree Removal
When surviving a tree and all of the land surrounding it, professional arborists take a lot of factors into consideration when deciding whether a tree crane will be required for removal. In general, a crane is typically used to prevent any further hazards or damages than that which a tree is already causing or has the possibility to cause. Crane-assisted tree removal is usually the safest and most effective solution for when:
- A tree is weak or leaning dangerously close to a commercial building or house.
- A tree is too large to perform felling from the floor of the ground.
- Tree is near or has become tangled in electrical cables and wiring.
- A tree has become severely diseased or decayed.
- A tree has fallen because of age, disease, weakness, or storm on top of or against a house or other large structure near people.
