Keeping Your Trees Healthy

After we moved into a new home, I realized that the trees out front needed some serious attention. They were overgrown, tired-looking, and a little dangerous, so I started working with professional arborists to have them trimmed. It was a lot of work, but before we knew it, things had really improved. By the time they were finished pruning the branches, the trees didn't block the view of our home and we really felt like they would bloom better in the spring. Check out this blog for more information that could help you to keep your trees happy and healthy.

Ridding Yourself Of Hazardous Trees

There is no doubt that trees can be a huge part of your landscape. A nice tree will add color and break up the monotony of grass. However, if a tree gets out of control, it can also be a very big hazard. If a tree gets too big and grows out over the house, then you may find yourself in a lot of danger; the same goes for a tree that grows out over the power lines. In these situations, it is important that you take action right away. These trees are a hazard and need to be dealt with. The good news is that a tree trimming service can help. Here are a few things you can expect from a tree removal specialist. 

Scouting The Tree

The professional will come to your home and will look at the trees you want removed. One of the biggest things they will be looking for is the amount of danger they will be in when they start removing the tree. They will also assess if the tree should be trimmed or if the tree will be a reoccurring problem. It may be best to simply get rid of the tree. They will also see what type of equipment and how big a crew they will need to complete the job. Inspecting the tree can take a few hours or a day.

Removal

When the professionals come to remove your tree, they will likely bring their boom to get high in the tree, ropes, chains, and a chainsaw. They will start at the top of the tree by securing the branches they wish to cut. They secure these branches so they do not fall on your house or on the power lines. They will start cutting at the top and slowly work down to the bottom of the tree. Once the tree has been completely cut down, they will move onto the next part of the job.

Stump Removal

The next thing that the professionals will need to do is remove the stump from the ground. Nobody wants to have to deal with a stump, so they can remove it in a few different ways. Often, the stump is cut down below the ground level, and poison is placed on the stump to kill it. Gasoline and fire are also used to kill stumps. No matter what method the professional uses to kill the stump, be sure that it is below the surface enough so you can work in the yard.
