If you’re removing an entire tree, including its root system, you’re going to want to call in the professionals to get the job done. That can be a difficult decision for some—after all, working with a root removal service can be pricey. It’s an investment worth making if you are absolutely in need of root removal though. Plus, by working with a certified arborist, you can be assured that they will safely and efficiently remove the whole root system without any disruption or damage to neighboring trees. They also consider the environmental impact of their work.
Still uncertain? Don’t worry, we know it can be a lot. Here are a few reasons why you might need to work with a root removal service and why it can be a big benefit to your property.
You Don’t Have the Tools
In order to do a job like this, you need specialized tools and machinery, which most average people don’t own or even have access to. That, plus the specialized training that’s needed to do the job safely and effectively, are both good reasons to work with a pro root removal service. Some of those tools range from diggers, mattocks, even machetes and heavier hand tools like stump grinders, chainsaws, or crosscut saws. Believe it or not, depending on how difficult the job is, tractors and backhoes are sometimes utilized as well.
You May Need Soil-Softening Chemicals
Depending on the soil around your tree’s stump, you may need to apply certain chemicals (like potassium nitrate) to help soften things up. This lets an arborist get down into the roots and be certain that they’re removing the entirety of the root system. Though, as with anything involving chemicals, this is best left up to a professional. If you were to mishandle the chemicals used in this process, you may end up harming your health. The effects can include skin irritation or, more seriously, respiratory issues, so make sure you bring in a pro.
You Might Need Help With Aftercare
By fully removing a root system, you’re committing to a fairly invasive task that will leave its mark. After you’re done with the process, you will have a hole that’s far larger than the diameter of the removed tree, so you might need a hand in taking care of your landscape from there. That may mean extra topsoil, fertilizer, or grass seed to get everything where you need it to be, but a professional will know what steps to take and can help you determine a plan of action.
