Tree Removal

When Is It Time To Say Good-Bye to A Tree?

Trees bring joy just by virtue of their majesty, swaying in the soft breeze of a summer evening; braving the blasts of wind and torrents of snowstorms; or just standing guard along the side of the road. However, there may come a time when we must decide whether a tree is still an asset or has become a liability.

When a once-loved tree that grew in our yard and provided shade to our home now threatens it, hard as it may be, it's time to look into tree removal. If a tree has developed a hazardous defect causing it to lean precariously over your home or driveway, it's probably a cause of constant anxiety which is hardly an asset to your emotional well-being. A tree that is damaged or in decline with clumps of bare or broken, or dead branches can survive for years but its growth will be limited or abnormal. And if that damage extends to 50% of the tree, it's time to put it out of its misery.

A dead tree is a completely different matter. While it may not appear to be a danger to your home, allowing it to remain is akin to a game of Russian Roulette. You never know whether it will be tomorrow's storm, the one next month, or next year that will bring it to its breaking point and send it crashing down over your house or car.

Sometimes the decision of whether to remove the tree or not is a hard one, and sometimes you have no choice at all. However, calling in a reputable tree removal service like ours means you don't have to make the decision alone. We will appraise the tree's condition and recommend tree removal only if it is necessary. And once we have taken the tree down we can provide stump removal - again only if necessary. If the tree has been removed from a wooded area of your property, leaving the stump can provide ecological benefits. But if it was alongside your driveway or in the middle of your yard, the stump is an eyesore, and in that case we might recommend stump removal. Notice we said recommend for while we will always give our honest opinion, the choice is only yours to make.
