Glorious trees exist in just about every place in the world. Just like other plants they are extremely beneficial to the environment as they breathe in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. This improves the air we breathe and the atmosphere. Unfortunately, no matter how much you might love the trees in your yard there are times when they need to be trimmed or removed. On these occasions it is essential that you use a firm specializing in tree removal. This will ensure the process is completed properly and safely. But there are seven aspects of tree removal you might want to know first.
Choosing the right time to remove a tree is often difficult but it is essential to consider what is best before you sharpen your chainsaw. Trees lose their leaves in autumn which means that you will be able to see the branches easier. This is especially beneficial if you were intending just to trim the tree or remove it one section at a time.
A good reason for removing a tree is when it is in poor health. A tree that has sustained a lot of damage in bad weather will probably need to be removed. Alternatively if it suddenly starts to lean in one direction or another then it’s likely the roots have become loose. It may even be that the tree is in danger of dying.
If your tree is located near the edge of a hill or by water then it might only have shallow roots. This means it will not be able to sustain itself properly as it grows. You need to monitor it and as soon as its health starts to deteriorate, remove it
4. Property & Third Parties
Any tree that is likely to damage your property or a neighbors must be considered for removal. It is possible that the tree will crash down in a big storm and cause a large amount of damage or even a loss of life. This will make it imperative that it is removed.
5. Underground Hazards
Felling a tree is one issue but if you are intending to remove all trace of the tree you’re going to need to dig the stump out. This is often a difficult process as the roots grow in all directions. Before you start digging you need to verify that there are no utilities running underground by the stump; you don’t want to dig into them!
6. Local Laws
In some cases tree removal is only allowable by the local authority. In other cases you might even be told to remove your tree by the state! The important thing is to check your local laws and make sure you comply with them before you complete your tree removal.
7. Disposing Of It
Finally don’t underestimate the amount of wood and debris that will accompany a removed tree. If you have a wood fire you might wish to cut this and keep it. If not you’ll need to decide the best way of removing it effectively and cost efficiently!
