Trees are often considered the anchor to landscaping around the home or a commercial property, but sometimes the trees on the property need to be removed because of damage, rot, or because they are hindering construction on the property. Working with a tree removal service to make that happen is essential, and in some cases, you may need to get approval from the city arborist before the trees are cut.
Tree Trimming For Safety
One of the most common reasons for trimming trees back and removing limbs is related to safety concerns. A rotted branch that is hanging over a house or a commercial building could come down and damage the structure when it falls.
A more significant concern is a rotted limb that overhangs a walkway or an area where people may be walking under the tree. If the branch came down when there were people below it, the result could be severe injury or death resulting from getting hit but the tree limb.
Any tree found to have rot or structural damage to the branches should be cut back by a tree trimming service until all the rotted material is eliminated. If the entire tree is rotted inside, you may need to consider removing the entire tree instead of just trimming it.
There are many reasons to remove an entire tree from your property. It may be that the tree is too close to a building causing damage to it, or it might be a pathway for insects and rodents to get in the building because it is so close to the roof. Removing the tree is often not the first option, but there are times when a tree removal service needs to take the entire tree out for you.
The tree removal service is vital if the tree is too close to the building because the tree needs to come down without damaging the structure, and that may mean you need a professional to do the job.
The tree removal service will often use a bucket truck to cut the tree in sections and then take the pieces out one at a time. For really large trees, a crane may be used to lift the tree straight up after it is cut and then move it to an area when the rest of the tree can be cut up and hauled away.
If the tree service is removing a tree for you, it is good to replant several others somewhere on the property. Replacing the trees helps to replace the work they do, creating oxygen and cleaning CO2 out of the air.
