Trees with large, dead or damaged sections visible from the ground are obvious candidates for removal. But often there are less obvious problems, too, such as hollow limbs, insect infestations and disease. Flaws such as splits and weak junctions can sometimes be addressed with cabling and bracing, but at some point the safest course of action is full removal.
To prevent dead, damaged, and dangerous trees from becoming unsafe and causing further damage, it is often a good idea to perform a full tree removal. Although it’s an intricate job, I can usually perform a tree removal within a day. If tree to be removed overhangs valuable property, don’t worry. Over 20 years of performing tree removals I have never had any property damage occur.
When a customer wants a tree “topped” it is often better to consider removal. It will generally cause fewer problems down the road.
