Cutting down a tree can be a risky, tedious and clumsy task. Unless you are not a professional you may be naïve to the reasons behind when and how to cut a tree and about the associated risk factors. So let’s talk about them and see why a professional tree removal service is so much required to cut it for you:
Get the tree removal done if it is sick or infected by some illness
If the reason behind your decision to cut the tree is the poor health of the tree, then you really need to be sure that it can’t be cured and the last resort left is to cut it. Only a certified tree expert can tell you for sure that it can be saved or removal is the only option left, because he is trained to do this job and posses the required amount of knowledge in this field.
There are a number of diseases which pose threat to the neighboring trees also as they are infectious and contagious. Hypoxylon canker or a pest such as the emerald ash borer may prove to be disastrous for other plants and trees in surrounding too. Tree removal is the only solution you are left with in such cases. The thumb rule to estimate the damage is to check the foliage, if it has already lost 25% of the foliage that means you should go for its removal. Waiting too long to eliminate a dead or dying tree can make the service much more costly as it will require expensive equipment and climbing a rotted tree is very risky.
Remove it if house or structure is present very near to the tree
If the tree has grown very near to an establishment, it can cause irreparable harm to the structure in many ways. If a tree is leaning over your house, it becomes a candidate for the removal as its falling leaves, debris and cones can block the water system and result in damage to the roof. A tree’s gradually and over expanding roots also poses the threat to the foundation of the structure and hence requires elimination of the tree. A professional tree pruner or trimmer can also help you in this.
Remove the tree if it is dangerous to the people or your house
If after much of pruning or trimming you still find the tree blocking your driveway, entering your house from a window or weakened branches which can fall on your head any time, it’s the right time to eliminate this threat by cutting the tree.
