As well as being the green lungs of the planet trees are imposing, majestic, and beautiful living things. They are the oldest living things on earth living for thousands of years and can grow to hundreds of feet high, they improve air quality, and even lower air temperature through evaporating water from their leaves. They give us shade, privacy, and are a huge part of the curb appeal and property value of our homes. Nobody loves trees more than us. But part of that love is recognizing when a tree is no longer an asset and has become a liability.
Cutting down and removing trees may then be a necessity and while it might be fun to live out your lumberjack fantasies and head outside with an ax there are a lot of risks to yourself, to others, and to your property. It’s a much better idea to get the pros on the job, and that’s where we come in.
Why Remove Trees?
There are a lot of reasons why we get called in to remove trees. The main one is that the tree, perhaps planted with no idea of its likely growth is now too close to property and is threatening to encroach on it further day by day. Or perhaps the tree is damaged through storms, or simple aging and threatens to fall into property or to drop heavy limbs on property or passers by.
We can provide a tree risk assessment for you to decide if a tree can be made safe or if it simply has to go. We don’t just assess obviously encroaching trees, we also check out any trees for signs that they are dead or dying, or have dead limbs that may be a risk. That involves checking for cavities in scaffold branches, checking the state of the bark, and looking for cracks in the trunk or dead branches in the upper crown.
Once a tree is dead it is a liability and since it is hard to tell how tall a tree is by looking up you may not be aware of the extent of the radius of potential damage if it comes down.
Cost of Tree Removal
Everyone wants to know how much it costs to remove a tree and the honest answer is that it varies depending on a number of factors. These include the location, the size of the tree and thus the kind of equipment required to remove it safely plus the size of crew needed to carry out the job properly.
Steps in Tree Removal
Once it’s decided a tree has to be removed we start by clearing the area and assessing the tree’s natural lean. We then reduce the amount of material falling at once by starting with the major limbs and removing them before moving on to the main trunk.
Tree Stump Removal
Tree removal will leave a stump and that can be a trip hazard as well as an eyesore so we would recommend that you also think about tree stump removal and grinding. Talk to us today about removing both your unwanted tree and the remaining stump.
We keep trees in check, but as arborists we do so in a way that promotes their healthy growth. Just taking a chainsaw to a tree growing in a way you don’t want is a recipe for problems further down the line. For example where once it was considered perfectly acceptable to ‘lop’ trees by cutting down parts of the main stem to leave stubs we know now that this can stunt trees, or encourage decay and fungi that can spread to other trees.
We don’t lop trees, we prune by taking out the right amount of the crown at the right points, and at the right time of year. That way you get the tree shape that you want, but with healthy tree growth going forward. That approach underlies everything we do, including work like tree removal and stump grinding. We always aim to preserve your property but also do right by the trees themselves – because we believe it’s in everybody’s interests.
It’s always sad to see a tree go but there are times when there is no other option and it’s a job you want handled by the professionals. Dead trees that have fallen are one clear example (although even there we would encourage you to keep small areas of dead wood to encourage wildlife).
Seriously damaged or dying trees that pose a risk of falling are another example of trees that must be removed. And of course some times trees have to be removed because of construction work or replanting. In each case the work needs to be done in a controlled fashion to minimize damage to other plants and to ensure the timber is removed safely.
Trees may need trimming because they are getting too close to property or utility lines, they may need trimming because they are unsightly or growing lopsidedly. They may also need trimming to promote their growth (pruning) and and to give better headroom underneath (crown raising).
We know exactly how to trim every type of tree you’re going to find in Florida so the shape is right for you and the growth pattern is right for the plant.
Tangled undergrowth, fallen trees, stumps and rocks can make land unusable and unsightly. Before you can lay that patio, build on it or simply enjoy that lawn, you need the land cleared by our team of enthusiastic and environmentally conscious land clearing specialists.
When a tree is cut it leaves a stump and the roots beneath it. While the roots can usually be left in place (unless you need to plant another tree on the same spot) the stump will prove an eyesore, a trip hazard, and a building obstacle even if it was cut to be as close as possible to ground level. We grind out stumps to below ground level so that you can have a perfectly smooth surface where they used to be.
If trees need support to withstand the weather, stop them from threatening property, or perhaps grow back up straight (think of cabling as like teeth braces for trees) then we can use a variety of cabling and bracing to support and direct your trees as well as steer them back on to the straight and narrow.
Ask us about the difference between static steel bracing, and the possibilities of flexible dynamic bracing to allow your trees to move with wind and storms without risking them falling.
24-Hour Emergency Tree Service
Trees don’t respect working hours when it comes to problems. Storm damage needs to be dealt with immediately and if you think a leaning tree or heavy limbs are a likely threat to your own life and limb then there’s no way you can wait. Which is why we offer a full emergency tree service around the clock, every day of the year.
If it’s a tree emergency then call us now on this number. If you think you may have problems with your trees that will only get worse then call us now on this number. Even if you think your trees are just fine then at least make a note of it but our feeling is that if you have trees then the best thing to do is have them checked out so we can tell you where things may need work.
