Tree Removal & Cutting

When are tree removal services necessary?

There are many reasons why it may be necessary to remove a tree from your property. Damaged or unhealthy trees may continue to decay over time, running the risk of spreading disease to other trees. Diseased trees may also have structural issues that could compromise the structural integrity, increasing the chances of it falling during stormy weather.

Overgrown trees can also run the risk of severely damaging property or pose a safety risk. Roots can get into sewage or potentially run the risk of damaging the concrete around your home if planted within close proximity.

Another reason that some residents choose to remove their trees is to enhance the look of their property. An overgrown or poorly maintained tree may obstruct the beautiful view from your window or may simply be an eyesore.

Tree removal is a last resort. But should your tree need to be removed, Alberta Arborists staff will use the proper techniques and professional equipment to ensure that your tree comes down in the absolute safest manner possible.

How do I know if a tree needs to be removed?

There are several warning signs that you may want to take into consideration when deciding on whether you need to cut that tree down or simply require pruning services:

  • Is the trunk damaged? Vertical cracks, large wounds may be a sign of internal decay.
  • Is the trunk hollow? Hollow trees lack the structural integrity and are more prone to falling.
  • Do you notice rotting or large fungus on the base of the tree? This could be a sign for internal rotting and should be evaluated.
  • Does the tree lean to one side? This could signal that the roots are weakening and the tree is at risk of falling.
  • Is the tree within close proximity to power or electrical lines? Trees at risk of touching electrical lines can pose a serious threat and cause expensive damages.

It is recommended that you consult a professional arborist to evaluate the safety and risks to determine if removing a tree is necessary.
