Hiring an expert for tree removal
While you may be able to remove a tree yourself, it’s generally best to leave tree removal to the experts. Not only is tree removal a dangerous job, but it also requires specialized equipment and knowledge.
When deciding whether or not to hire an expert for tree removal, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, consider the size of the tree. If the tree is small enough that you can remove it without putting yourself or others in danger, then you may be able to do the job yourself. However, if the tree is large or if there are any obstacles nearby (such as power lines), then it’s best to leave the job to a professional.
Another thing to consider is the type of tree. Some trees, such as Birch and Maple, have shallow root systems that make them easy to remove. Other trees, such as Oak and Pine, have deep root systems that make them more difficult (and dangerous) to remove. If you’re not sure how deep the roots of your tree go, it’s best to err on the side of caution and hire an expert.
Finally, consider the cost of hiring an expert versus doing the job yourself. In most cases, hiring an expert will be more expensive than doing the job yourself. However, when you factor in the cost of renting equipment and the risk of injury (or even death), hiring an expert suddenly doesn’t seem so costly.
So while you may be able to remove a small tree yourself, it’s generally best to hire an expert for larger trees or for any trees with shallow root systems. Hiring an expert may be more expensive than doing the job yourself, but it’s worth it for your safety and peace of mind.
Why some trees need to be removed
Dangerous trees should be removed for the safety of people and property. Trees may need to be removed if they are:
- Dead or dying
- Damaged by storms
- Damaged by disease (eg. Emerald Ash Borer)
- Too close to power lines
- Growing into or leaning on buildings
- Leaning dangerously
- Causing cracks in sidewalks or pavement
Risks involved in tree removal
When you cut down a tree, there are many risks involved. The first and most obvious risk is the danger of injury. If you are not experienced in tree removal, you could easily injure yourself or someone else. Even if you are experienced, there is always the potential for accidents.
Another risk is the damage that can be caused to your property. If the tree falls the wrong way, it could damage your house, your car, or even a power line. In some cases, the damage can be extensive and expensive to repair.
There is also the risk of legal trouble. If the tree falls on your neighbor’s property, they may sue you. If the tree is protected by law, you could be fined for cutting it down.
Finally, there is the risk to the environment. Trees play an important role in our ecosystem, and removing them can cause problems. For example, trees help to prevent soil erosion and provide homes for wildlife. When they are removed, these benefits are lost.
