When Do I Need to Remove a Tree?
There are some situations where it is necessary for us to remove a tree from your residential or commercial property. Some of them include:
- Tree damage:
If you find that at least half of the tree has suffered damage or is dying, it should be removed from your property. It helps in preventing the spread of disease and beetles to nearby trees. If it is not treated or removed, the damaged limbs and roots can result in falling debris, brittle and break as well as posing danger to structures and people.
- Power lines:
Trees located near power lines are a serious hazard. If you find any tree that is larger than 25 feet under a line, you should remove it for safety reasons.
- Shallow roots and epicormic shoots:
Epicormic and shallow shoots are small branches that grow from the trunk. They are not healthy and may fall over eventually if they are not removed.
- Undesirable trees:
To preserve the beauty of the landscape, some trees can be removed if they drop a lot of debris or hard to maintain.
- Sick trees:
If you spot any dead branches, trunk damage, or leaning tree, these might be signs of a sick tree and must be removed.
Tree Removal – Its Benefits
We understand that it is difficult to get separated from a tree that has been on the property for a long time. But there are distinct benefits by having our professionals remove a tree under right circumstances such as:
- Protect people:
Dead branches falling from the tree potentially cause harm to people. By removing such trees, we can help save people from being injured and property owners from legal action if someone is hurt on their property.
- Protect structures:
Trees that are growing too close to a house or office can cause damage to any structure. Leaning trees can also damage your building when the trunk weakens enough for your tree to fall. Eliminating such trees will save your property.
- Protect infrastructure:
Aggressive tree roots crack underground pipes, damage concrete walks and driveways, and cause other damage to your property’s structure. Removing those trees will eliminate the risk of damage to your property.
- Follow the bylaws:
City of Vernon and Edmonton do not have a bylaw that concerns the management of trees located on private property. However, according to the City of Calgary’s Bylaws, Homeowners or occupants must keep trees, hedges, and shrubs trimmed so that they don’t harm the pedestrians on the sidewalks or vehicles using the street or alley. Hedges, trees, or shrubs should not grow more than 750mm within a corner of a lot.
Our professional arborist can provide you with an assessment of whether the tree needs to be removed or not.
Can I Cut Down a Tree for Myself?
Homeowners or small business owners who are managing their landscape can remove a tree for themselves. However, we do not recommend this approach. Because, major tree pruning and removal is a challenging task if you’re untrained.
It can be dangerous for not having the right tools and injuring yourself seriously, but there are also other dangers that people do not think of. For example, removing trees near power lines is very dangerous. If you’re standing on a metal ladder, it can pose a serious danger to yourself.
You can trust our tree removal services, as our experts use specialized tools that any average client does not possess. If you spot any tree around a power line or near a structure, count on our licensed and insured arborists. With our extensive knowledge and right tools, we can eliminate the tree without causing any damage to you, your home or office, your family or neighbours.
