We always want to answer as many questions as we can over the phone, especially right now as we all practice social distancing. So a lot of you might be wondering how your tree removal will be performed, how long it will take, or how much it will cost.
We can offer some information through these blogs and over the phone, but the truth is that we really need to take a look at your tree(s) in person before we can get into details. That’s because a number of factors can make a tree removal simple or more complicated, and often we can’t spot those until we check out the site itself.
Factors like power lines, proximity to your house or other structures, nearby trees and other landscaping features will influence our removal methods. In some cases a tree might be leaning in a particular direction, or the slope of the property could influence the direction in which it falls. Prior damage to the tree itself can also make a difference.
And of course, the type of service you actually need will influence the process greatly. Depending upon the situation, you might need one or more of the following services:
Fallen tree removal. The tree has already fallen, due to a storm or other reasons. It might have fallen completely and cleanly, in which case you just need it hauled away.
Or, a half-fallen tree might require some “help”. Due to the risk of injury those jobs can sometimes be more complicated than they look!
Large tree removal. It won’t surprise you to learn that the size of the tree significantly influences the type of removal process we need to use.
Branch removal. Sometimes you just need some branches removed, such as when they are dead, dangle over your home, or have become crowded and unsightly.
Stump grinding. Any time we cut down a tree, a stump is left over. Some homeowners are fine with this, but if you find it unsightly or need that space for another project, then we can grind it down for you.
As you can probably guess, we need to view your yard and the tree in question in order to offer you an accurate estimate. But don’t worry; we can do this while maintaining proper social distance. Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to come take a look.
