Removing a tree is a big decision especially if it is large and old. Many clients worry about the costs of removal, but are usually pleasantly surprised once they receive an honest estimate.
Typically there are 3 reasons to remove a tree.
- The tree is dead or dying- if the tree is dead or dying then it is time to remove the tree. A dead tree can become weak and pose severe risk to your property, your well-being, and the well-being of the neighboring properties, should it fall during high winds.
- The tree is causing property damage- Over time tree roots can pose a significant risk to pavements, driveways, pipes, gas lines, electrical lines, and a worst case scenario- the foundation of your home or business. Tree needles and leafs can cause damage to your roof and gutter system.
- The tree is unsightly or unwanted- sometimes a tree is so unsightly or so out of place that it could affect the value of your property and can be unpleasant to look at through your window, spending time in your yard, and general curb appeal.

Cranes are becoming more common to use for tree removals, particularly with very large, severely damaged, hazardous or unstable trees. Sometimes it's the only option for removing some of the much larger trees. Cranes can lift and lower heavy pieces of the tree, sometimes weighing between 500 lbs. and 6,000 lbs., safely to the ground with little or no impact to your home, lawn, delicate landscaping, or near by structures. Heavy duty cables and straps are used to balance and maneuver the large sections of tree, where they are cut up into smaller, more manageable pieces that the ground crews can handle.
