Finding a Qualified Tree Surgeon
It is important to select a tree service that is accredited and licensed. The service should be able to provide proof of insurance and verifiable references. Tree service professionals should be able to explain the process for removing the fallen tree and ensure the safety of the surrounding property. Failing to remove a sick tree that is in danger of falling could result in thousands of pounds worth of property damage and even injury to people. Tree removal meets all the criteria of a qualified and reliable tree service with skilled tree specialists who can offer advice as well as safely remove a fallen tree.
Tree Felling vs. Tree Removal
Tree felling is the process involved in bringing a tree down safely. Tree removal, on the other hand, involves completely removing trees from property. The two are very similar, and one service may be performed without the other. For example, if a tree falls on your property due to wind or other acts of nature, you can call a company to remove that tree for you. On the other hand, if a tree on your property has died and you need someone to take it down, you would ask for tree felling, instead.
Tree Removal Costs
The costs of removing a tree may vary depending on a number of things. Larger trees often cost more to remove than smaller trees simply because there is more work involved. Trees that have already fallen on homes, buildings or other structures pose special dangers to the tree specialist as well as to the structural integrity of the building and may require additional costs to remove. Trees that are dangerously close to power lines or buildings require special attention and sometimes extra costs are involved in order for tree removal specialists to safely take the tree away.
Circumstances for Removing Trees
There are various circumstances that may call for a removal of a tree or group of trees. It is not always fallen trees that need to be removed. Sometimes businesses that are expanding need for a site to be cleared of trees. Other times people in residential neighbourhoods need to have a tree removed when it has grown too large for an area or is too close to the home. A qualified tree removal service is able to remove and carry away trees of all shapes and sizes and from all kinds of locations.
Removing Large Trees
Wind, saturated ground, and the death of a tree are the top reasons why large trees will fall on the ground, on vehicles, or even on homes. These large trees may seem impossible to remove, but experienced professionals have the knowledge to remove them safely, without causing further damage. Heavy machinery may be brought in to safely lift and move the tree, or the company may simply cut the tree into smaller, more manageable pieces and move it chunk-by-chunk. Tree surgeons will discuss the best options for removal with you before they get started.
Relocating Removed Trees
If you're expanding your home or business, or even interested in moving a tree to another location on your property, it may be possible to save that tree and replant it elsewhere. Typically, this is only true of smaller trees have not yet developed extensive root systems. Your tree surgeon can give you more information about relocating a tree, including the prognosis for that tree's survival in the future. Not all trees can be relocated, so it's important to consider this before you schedule yourwork.
Regular Inspection of Trees
It is a good idea to have trees checked regularly for decay and disease. Whether in private yards or places of business, unhealthy trees can pose a dangerous hazard to people and buildings. A professional tree removal service can inspect a tree and determine whether or not it needs to be removed. Sometimes proper maintenance such as removal of dead branches or treatment of diseases can save a tree from falling or needing to be removed. Regular inspections and maintenance of trees by specialists can prevent disasters from happening.
Trees Have a Lifespan
Trees actually have a lifespan. The lifespans may differ depending on the type of tree. Some typically live longer than others, but all will reach the end of their lifespans eventually. A qualified tree removal service will be able to advise a customer as to whether or not a tree can be saved of if it is time to have it removed. It is important that a tree surgeon has all of the necessary equipment on hand to safely remove the tree and a qualified tree service professional should be able to do the entire job in one day under normal circumstances.
