Reasons For Tree Removal

By: albertaarb - April 16, 2013

Trees play a critical role in our environment. This includes cleaning the air free of any pollutant gases, regulating temperature, beautifying the landscape and so much more. Unfortunately, at one point or another, there arises the need for tree removal. Below are a few reasons as to why you may need to cut down a tree or two.

Dead Tree Removal

Whether your tree has died of diseases, lack of water or nutrient supply, you still need to consider cutting it down. The fact that it is dead or is in the process of dying does not mean that this will not stop pests from building nests there. Among these pests may include rats which carry diseases thus posing a risk to you and your family.

Structural Damage

Large trees can cause damage to structures such as buildings, underground utilities and building roofs. By practicing proactive tree removal, you will be saving both time and money before the tree poses any risk thereby avoiding catastrophes and legal liabilities.


Despite all the advantages trees have, they also pose a risk and for that, they may need to be cut down. Trees stand in the way of development. In order for any new projects take off, i.e. construction of roads, homes, schools, hospitals e.t.c., the landscape needs to be cleared out first.

Removal of Trees Damaged by Extreme Weather Conditions 

In most cases, huge storms wreak havoc on trees, with strong powerful winds tearing into large branches. Lightning on the other hand is capable of splitting the tree in half. A tree which has been damaged by these storms is irreparable thus the best option for you is to cut it down, the sooner the better.

Overall Maintenance

Many trees over time become a liability due to several unforeseen factors. In fact, by planting them too close to the house, you pose a danger to your building in the event it falls. Roots may also damage the drive way, streets or even the building's foundation. By cutting them down soon enough, you will be avoiding the overall maintenance costs associated with repairing any damage caused as a result of the tree.

The tree removal process is rather simple. By following the outline below, you will be able to rid yourself of any potential danger as a result of any unwanted trees.

  • The first step is to identify the tree that needs cutting.
  • Call a tree tree removal company so that they may come over and analyze the condition.
  • The specialist will come and review your tree problem.
  • Using technologies such as tree be gone technology, they will be able to offer you the right quotation.
  • You will receive a notification of the set date which the company will come and cut down the tree.

Within a couple of hours, the tree will be completely cut down including the removal of the stamp, allowing you to plant another tree in its place if you wish to.
