There are a number of reasons why property owners will need to have a tree removed from their land. For many, it is will be because the tree is dying. For some others, the tree is impeding a view. Or it could be that the tree was planted to close to a property structure. If a property owner is having a tree removed for any of these reasons, they should always hire a professional for removal of large, mature trees. We say this because below are a few reasons tree removal is not a DIY project

Avoid Power Lines

If the tree is near any power lines, removing it can be extremely hazardous. Removal will require the expertise of an experienced tree care professional to cut down the tree without impacting the nearby power wires and causing critical damage.

Safeguard Nearby Property Structures

Tree removal can be hazardous. If the tree is not removed correctly, limbs can fall on a roof or vehicle, causing expensive damage. If there an adjacent home in close proximity to the property owner’s home, that house could be at risk of being damaged too. The safest way to prevent a tree from causing damage is to employ a tree service professional to perform the project.

Wildlife Safety

Before a professional tree service cuts down the tree, they will fully assess it. One aspect of their assessment is to look for is wildlife inhabiting the tree. If birds or animals have made the tree a home, a professional tree service will ensure each bird or animal is relocated from the tree safely. If the bird or animal can easily find a new home, the tree cutter will simply free it. If it will need assistance, local animal management would be called to pick up and relocated the bird or animal.

Clean Up

When the tree is removed, the property owner has 2 options. First, they can keep the wood to be used as firewood and burned in their outdoor firepit or fireplace. If the property owner does not want the wood, the tree service can haul the wood away and dispose of it. Second, as a tree is removed, the tree debris will be feed into a wood chipper. When the tree cutter leaves, the complete tree and all of the tree debris will be cleaned up and disposed of
