What to Expect From the Tree Removal Process

Tree removal isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a big job that requires big equipment, lots of workers, lots of planning and lots of skill. The tree removal process can not only be unpredictable, it can be unsafe. You may encounter problems along the way that are challenging to say the least, such as obstacles or situations where you are required to think on your feet.

Trees don’t always fall the way you want them to. This is why it’s always a good idea to hire a certified arborist in Dallas. Your life depends on it, as well as the lives of those around you. Someone could be killed if you attempt tree removal on your own. But at the very least, you are risking property damage. Not to mention, you’re disturbing an established ecosystem within a tree or set of trees, displacing wildlife and changing the landscape forever.

Here’s what to expect from the tree removal process in Texas.

What Will My Tree Removal Professional Bring?

Your arborists will arrive with a variety of equipment, tools and safety gear to efficiently and safely remove your tree or trees. That equipment may include:

  • Cables
  • Spotters
  • Cranes
  • Gloves
  • Pulleys
  • Eyeglasses
  • Ear protection
  • Hard hats
  • Chainsaws
  • Slings
  • Tree shears
  • Pruners
  • Chippers

Every job requires a different set of tools, but this is a general list. The exact tools your arborist will bring to the job will vary with tree size, where it’s located, how healthy it is, and more.

Why Should I Have a Tree Removed?

From disease to obstacles, there are many reasons why homeowners like you would choose to hire a tree removal professional. You may decide to remove a tree on your property if:

  • The tree is dead or diseased.
  • The tree is leaning heavily to one side.
  • Rot has been detected.
  • It’s located too close to a structure, such as a home or shed.
  • It’s hovering over or on utility lines.
  • It no longer fits into your landscape plans.
  • It is posing a nuisance.

Sometimes you’re not quite sure if you need a tree removed but you just know something isn’t right. Call an expert arborist who can inspect the tree and surrounding area and determine if tree removal is the best choice, and why. For example, you may think a tree on your property is dead, when in fact it is dormant and doesn’t necessarily need to be removed.

Why Do I Need to Hire a Pro?

Before you assume you can easily DIY that tree removal process, think again. Even removing just one tree can pose several safety issues. You may have to position yourself high off the ground in a precarious position, posing a fall hazard. The tree may be located next to a utility line, which poses an electrocution hazard. Or you may not have much stability when trying to hold a chainsaw and do an effective job at the same time.

On top of how unsafe it is, you would have to shell out a lot of money on the appropriate equipment, such as chainsaws and goggles, to get the job done. And unless you have a whole weekend day to devote to removing a tree, we suggest you hire a pro. If you cut down a tree and it falls the wrong way onto another structure or even your neighbor’s property, the cleanup and resulting bills to make repairs can be staggering. We won’t even go into the safety aspect of a tree that has gone over in the wrong direction. No one is safe in the general area.

You should hire a pro because:

  • They can handle the job from start to finish, including tree disposal and debris cleaning.
  • They can do a quick yet effective job.
  • They can do the job safely with no risk of injuries or property damage.
  • They bring the proper equipment.
  • They have contingency plans in place in the event unexpected snafus crop up.
  • They know exactly which cuts to make and where.
  • They can save your life or at the very least save you a visit to the ER.
