Tree removal is an important practice in arboriculture that involves the selective removal of trees from their existing environment. This process is necessary to maintain a healthy and aesthetically pleasing landscape, as well as provide access to property maintenance and construction projects.
Dying or dead trees pose a significant danger when left alone. Removing these trees prevents potential injury or property damage from falling limbs, as well as eliminates habitat for disease-carrying insects and animals.

Spotting the Signs: When Do You Need Tree Removal?
When it comes to trees, prevention is the best medicine. By keeping an eye on your trees and being aware of the signs that they need removal, you can prevent a lot of tree-related problems in the future. If you notice any of the following signs, it might be time to contact a professional tree removal service:
Branches Breaking Easily
Branches that easily break or appear abnormally thin could be a sign of an unhealthy tree. Broken branches can become hazardous and should be removed as soon as possible as part of a tree removal service.
Visible Decay in the Trunk
If you notice any visible signs of decay such as fungal growth, rot, cracks, or hollow cavities in the trunk of your tree it may be time to call a professional tree service. Decay can lead to structural instability and make a tree dangerous over time.
Fungus Growing on the Bark
Fungal growth can look like small circles, splotches, or tufts of cotton on the bark and can be indicative of several issues. If you see fungus growing on your tree, it may be time for a professional to assess the situation and determine if removal is necessary.
Leaning Trees with Weak Root Systems
If a tree appears to be leaning or unstable, there could be an issue with its root system. This can occur due to soil erosion, construction near the area, or other factors, and can make a tree hazardous.
Blocking Access to Your Property
Oftentimes, trees can get too large and begin to block access to your property. In these cases, it may be necessary to remove the tree to make space for vehicles or other needs.
Power Line Interference
You must contact a professional tree removal service immediately if your palm trees or other large variety of trees are close to power lines. Not only can they ensure the job will be done without disruption, but it also stays away from potential electrocution risks that may otherwise occur during an amateur attempt at removal.
If a tree has suffered damage from a recent storm, it may need to be removed to prevent further harm. A professional arborist can assess the tree’s condition and determine if removal is necessary.
The Benefits of Professional Tree Care Services – Why DIY is Not Recommended
Although it may be tempting to try and remove a tree yourself, it is not recommended due to the level of risk involved. Tree removal should be done with care, respect, and caution. Professional tree services are highly trained and experienced to handle such tasks efficiently and safely.
Before this process begins, we also ensure that all paperwork and permits are taken care of, that way you won’t incur any fines.
We start by assessing the entire tree, such as its size, location, and condition. This helps to determine which techniques and tools will be required for the job. Depending on the size and location of the tree, different techniques may need to be employed to safely remove it with minimal disruption to surrounding vegetation.
The next step is pruning or trimming back branches that are too close to structures or obstruct walkways. This helps to reduce the risk of injury during the removal process and makes the tree easier to handle. The final step involves cutting down the tree in sections, then hauling it away for disposal or repurposing.
Tree removal is also the only time we will use climbing spikes. Using spikes while performing any other service will damage the health of the tree.
