4 Things You Need to Know About Winter Tree Removal

By: albertaarb - December 9, 2016

Whether you’re looking to remove a snow-staggered trunk or simply looking to get rid of some branches to satisfy that nagging city bylaw, winter can be the perfect time to clear out unwanted trees from your yard.

Fewer Diseases, Quicker Recovery

Winter is the perfect time for pruning and general branch maintenance, as there are fewer diseases to enter open wounds in the bark. Trees are also dormant during the winter months – any wounds from pruning will not be exposed until the spring.

Enjoy Your Summer Lawn – Without the Noise of Chainsaws

Damaged and diseased trees can be an eyesore, and overgrown branches can get you in trouble with city by-laws. Winter removal can clear out the detritus from your lawn, without cluttering your summertime with troublesome noise.

Cost, Safety and Peace of Mind

DIY tree removal is a dangerous process, and might not necessarily save you money. The total cost of tools, equipment and unforeseen expenses can often exceed what you’d normally pay for a professional tree removal service. Hiring a certified arborist can provide a professional eye in risk-assessment, and prevent otherwise costly damage to persons and property.

A Decaying Tree Can Be Dangerous

Wood rot and hollow trunks can compromise the structural integrity of the tree, leading to collapse and serious damage to property. There are several warning signs that the tree in your yard may need removal:

- Vertical cracks in the truck

- Rot or fungus growing at the base of the tree

- The tree increasingly leans to one side

- Branches in close proximity to power lines
