Tree removal is a huge job with many detailed steps. Special equipment is needed to undertake the project, and professionals should be utilized.
All those storms brewing on the coasts bring to mind flooding, damaged roofs, and downed fences, but one of the most common occurrences during all types of windstorm is the damaging of trees. It may not sound like a pending threat, but these leafy stemmed monsters can do severe damage to property when they are provoked by hurricanes, tornadoes, lighting, etc. When danger is looming from downed or damaged foliage, a tree removal service is the business that needs to be called.
No matter how big or small, dealing with storm damage can cause more harm than good if you are not working with the right equipment. You should always deal with a professional service when branches, stumps, debris, etc need to be addressed. It may seem like a simple job to remove the rubble, but it can be dangerous. You will probably find if you do attempt clean up yourself that you by far do not have the right equipment to efficiently and effectively do the job.
Tree removal should be done by a professional service for three reasons. They have the right equipment, they know how to avoid dangerous situations, and there are many details to tree removal that do not strike owners until they are faced with them.
It is more than just cutting down a towering thing of nature. When it comes down to tree removal, there is a big stump rooted in the ground that is not going anywhere without a stump grinder, and those just are not readily available especially if you are in the aftermath of a storm. Those that are within limits of power lines must also be cut down strategically, and certainly only a trained tree removal professional should work near power lines.
So far, stumps and power lines have invaded simplicity, and though vertically it does not look that big, when cut in pieces and scattered across your property, you will then understand the capacity of the job. How many loads and trips would that take in the bed of your vehicle to remove all the debris? Some of it would be good firewood, but how would you go about that?
A professional will strategically cut, stump grind, remove debris, and possibly provide firewood as a part of the service. They will also, even without a storm, be able to evaluate a situation to determine if removal is necessary for safety, and they are privy to what species are protected by environmental services and will know the laws about proceeding if a protected tree is violating safety. It really is no small or easy job.
