While it can be sad to need to remove a tree from your property, it needs to be done sometimes. If you have a tree that is diseased beyond being able to be cured, is in a bad location, or is in the way of an intended project, tree removal is the only solution. It may be tempting to handle the removal by yourself and while that may be possible in some cases, there are some situations where you should leave tree removal to the professionals.
- Tree is close to power lines. Only a professional should attempt tree removal when power lines are nearby. The taller the tree, the more potential for a serious problem.
- You lack the equipment. It takes more than a chainsaw to safely take down a tree. If you don’t have the rest of the equipment, you could find yourself spending more money to handle the tree removal yourself than you would to call in a professional.
- Tree is close to your home. It would be an embarrassing situation to call your homeowners insurance company to put in a claim because you dropped your own tree on your own house. Even if you don’t total your home’s roof, you could end up with a branch through a window or scraping off siding or roofing material.
- Dealing with debris. Do you have a vehicle for transporting the tree once you have it down and cut up? Depending on the size of the tree, you could need many trips to the landfill even if you do own a truck to manage it. Your tree removal professional will take care of cleanup and will also take out the stump, which is yet another piece of equipment you’d need to have or rent if you did it yourself.
