Sometimes, it becomes necessary to remove a tree from your property. The tree may be damaged or diseased to the point where it can’t be treated and won’t recover. A tree in this condition poses a risk to your property and can even be dangerous. The last thing you want is for someone to be hurt by a falling tree.
Removing a tree can be a dangerous undertaking. You should always turn to a professional when the tree in question is damaged by insects or disease, is near power lines, or is more than 20 feet tall.
Additionally, some communities have tree removal legislation in place. This legislation is designed to protect healthy heritage trees or maintain the number of trees in an urban area. For example, when a tree is removed, some areas require that another tree be planted to make up for the loss. Navigating these regulations can be tricky, but a professional arborist will be familiar with area policies and can advise you best on how to proceed.
Once you schedule the removal of a tree, a professional crew will typically remove large limbs first, feeding them through a chipper to create mulch. Next, the trunk of the tree is cut into sections which are hauled away. The stump is typically left as close to the ground as possible and can be ground for complete removal.
