Do Not Try To Remove That Tree Yourself, Hire A Professional


There are often times when trees are planted much too close to homes or other structures. These trees can start to become a nuisance or even a hazard. If the tree is allowed to continue to grow it can cause damage to the foundation of structures, or often the tree will get into power lines and become an electrical hazard. These trees need to be dealt with as soon as possible, but it is important that the tree is removed by someone that has the training to do so. You may be able to cut down trees, but without the proper training in tree removal techniques, you may cause a lot of property damage. Here are a few things that you can expect to see when you hire a professional tree removal service. 

Thorough Inspection

The professional tree service company is likely to send a technician before they start the job. The technician is going to look at the tree or trees and decide the best course of action. Often they tree removal service is going to try to keep the tree alive, but if the tree will become a hazard once again, they will simply remove the tree. The inspection of the hazard does not take very long, but this gives the company an idea of the best way to approach the problem.


If the problem is mostly down low with the root system of the tree you can expect to see the technicians removing large portions of the roots to remove them from the home. If the tree is growing into power lines, you can expect the tree service to use a boom to get up to the tree. With the trees that extend high, they will secure a portion of the tree, cut it, then slowly lower it to the ground. They do not want the tree to end up crashing down on the power lines. The process is slow and methodical, but it is very effective.


If you have a dead tree in your yard, it becomes a target for termites and is a fire hazard. This is why it is so important that the company removes the problem completely. The technicians are going to cut the tree down as far as they can, and then they will either use fire or chemicals to burn the stump down to the ground. Once the stump is below the dirt level, they will cover the stump with dirt.

Understanding Landscaping Planning

About a year ago, I realized that part of the reason the plants in my yard kept dying was the fact that they were planted in the wrong places. I didn't pay much attention to which plants needed certain amounts of light, and it was costing them their lives. Several of the plants were really struggling to live, and it was really hard to see. I realized that if I ever wanted to make things right, I would need to create a landscaping plan that would work well for the natural landscape of my yard. This blog is all about understanding landscaping.
