Do You Need Tree Removal?

Over a long enough time, a tree will begin to die and decay. Sometimes, a tree can become hazardous due to homes, buildings and other structures nearby. Here are a few reasons it might be time to consider calling a tree service to determine if tree removal is necessary your property:

  • Rotting Trees – A rotting tree has serious damage, whether it’s from insects, disease, or some other cause. It needs to be removed before it can infect other trees or fall on a nearby structure.
  • Safety & Visibility – Lower limbs can be removed in order to make the area underneath the tree safer or to allow for a better view.
  • Root Encroachment – Tree roots extend below the ground even farther than tree canopy. They wrap around water lines and push up sidewalks if given the chance. Cutting the tree down will eventually kill these roots and stop them from destroying nearby property.
  • Nearby Trees & Plants – A tree that has grown too large for its location can affect the smaller trees and plants around it by taking away water and nutrients and blocking sunlight.
  • Power or Phone Lines – Tall trees interfere with these lines and pose a danger for falling. Sometimes the power or phone company may require these trees to be removed, or you can have trees removed as a precaution.

Tree Removal Service

Each tree removal service is a little different. Your assigned arborist has to take into consideration the size of the tree, where it is and what you want done with the tree once it is cut down. Tree specialists from WCO consider all these factors before formulating a plan to remove the tree using one of the following services:

  • Standard Tree Removal – The standard tree removal service includes cutting down the tree, disposing of the limbs and cutting the trunk into smaller sections for firewood. For an additional fee, technicians can haul the wood away instead.
  • Felling Only – The least expensive tree removal option is to just cut down the tree. Technicians fell the tree safely, but it’s up to you to complete debris cleanup and cut up the limbs and trunk as necessary.
  • Minimal Impact Tree Removal – If there isn’t much space to fell the tree, it’s necessary to bring it down piece by piece. This type of tree removal is more complex, but the only way to protect your home, lawn and fences.
