Tree Removal AlternativesWe never recommend removing a tree unless there is no other option. The first thing we do is determine whether there is a reasonable alternative to tree removal that will allow you to keep your tree. While proactive tree care and maintenance is the ideal way to ensure longevity, there may be some options for saving a tree you think may need removal. Cabling and bracing can provide supplemental support to structurally weak trees. This helps to prevent injuries to your trees, such as crotch and branch failure, and provides some protection against wind and storm damage. This practice can extend the life of large feature trees. Disease and insect treatment may be options, depending on the state of your tree and the problems it is suffering from.
What to Expect When Removing TreesTree removal in urban and suburban landscapes can present a challenge. Neighborhood trees are often surrounded by other valuable plantings and structures, while removals on public or commercial land can pose hazards to the public.
A standard tree removal includes:
- Taking down a tree
- Chipping all brush
- Cutting all wood into 20″ logs
- Cutting the stumps as flush as possible to the ground
