Removing Trees – The Professional Way

Removing a tree from your garden is a difficult task that very few of us are qualified to do effectively safely. This is why it’s important to understand what a professional is able to do for you if you need to get rid of a tree.

Make sure removal is legal

If you have a tree that is protected for one reason or another, then it may be that you’re not actually allowed to move it, regardless of what your plans for space are. This means that if a tree is especially old, beautiful, tall, or rare, then there’s a chance that by cutting it down, you may be breaking the law.

Felling

When we think about tree removal, we generally think of how we could cut the tree down and get rid of the trunk.

Tree Removal

Of course, such an activity is not without its challenges or dangers: will the removal of the tree cause other structures to shift, or will its fall land on something vulnerable to damage? Of course, you’ll need the right equipment to take the tree down as simply turning up with a sharp blade might not be enough.

Stump grinding

Of course, once you have removed the trunk and all the branches and associated foliage, one is left with a stump. If the stump is not dealt with effectively, it’s not entirely impossible that it could end up growing back, with the roots pushing under the ground just as much as the trunk beginning to re-emerge. Again, a tree surgeon can use his stump grinding equipment to ensure that it doesn’t grow back and that the tree you have removed it properly gone so that you can get on with whatever projects you had in mind for now-vacated space.

As you can see, the task of removing a tree is far from being a straightforward one, and therefore it often makes sense to call in professional tree removal so that they can carry it out for you.
