Making Your Trees Like New

When I moved into my house, I noticed that there were a few trees that were significantly overgrown. I knew that I had to do something to make things right, so I started looking for tree trimmers in the area with the kind of experience I needed. I worked with them to figure out what needed to be done, and after they offered a fair quote, I had them begin work. The difference they were able to make was amazing, and I was really impressed with their contribution. This blog is here to help people to make their trees like new with the help of a professional arborist.

What To Expect From A Tree Removal Service

April Reyes

There are a lot of things that you have to worry about as a homeowner, and one of those things are trees. Often a tree is planted and twenty years later it is hanging over the home, or the roots are starting to come up through the foundation of the home. If you do not have extensive knowledge of trees and chainsaws then you are better off leaving the removal of these trees to professionals. Here are a few different things that you can expect from a tree removal service.


One of the first things that the company will do is investigate the problem tree or trees. They will likely ask you if you want the tree completely gone or if you just want the problem area to be removed. On occasion the tree company will remove the tree completely regardless of if you wanted to keep it. If the tree is going to just grow back into a power line, it needs to be removed. The tree removal company is likely to investigate exactly how they plan to remove the tree. Sometimes the investigation takes a day, or sometimes they can do this portion of the tree removal in just a few minutes.


The actual removal part of the process can be extremely meticulous if the tree is in a precarious position. Expect the professionals to be extremely careful and isolate a portion of the tree and start high. Often they will use a crane or a boom to hoist themselves up. They often will tie themselves to the boom just in case they fall. They also tie the portions of the tree they are cutting to the hoist. This allows the professional to completely control the removed piece of the tree. The removal portion of the process is the most technical and can take several days in some instances.

Tree Stump Removal

Once the tree has been taken care of you may still have a tree stump to remove. These stumps can be in a very bad position if they are near the foundation of the wall. Ripping them out may cause a lot more problems with the foundation. So, the tree removal service will often use a chainsaw to cut into the tree, and then they will use a chemical that has been shown to remove and kill the roots of the tree. Do not try and attack an unwanted tree yourself. Be sure you hire a professional.
