If you have a tree that needs to be removed from your property, you should hire a tree removal service to do this for you. Below is information on how to prepare for the company, as well as how they remove trees.
Preparing for Tree Removal
There are many things you need to do to prepare for tree removal. Make sure the company has access to the tree by removing vehicles from the driveway, moving lawn furniture, and anything else you may have in your yard. When removing a tree, a lot of branches fall which can cause damage to these things. If you have animals that stay outside, make sure you keep them away from the tree that is being removed.
A tree removal service needs room as they use a lot of equipment. They may have a large truck if you have a tall tree, along with a woodchipper. Make sure they have an area where they can park these things close to the tree.
Removing the Tree
The size of the tree affects how the tree removal service removes the tree. The location of the tree is also an issue. For example, if the tree is far from your home and/or buildings, it is easier to remove. The tree removal company may cut the entire tree down instead of cutting it up into small pieces. Once the tree falls, the tree removal service cuts it up into smaller pieces.
If the tree is close to your home, the tree removal service will start at the top of the tree removing branches first until they are left with only the tree trunk. They then start cutting the trunk into pieces starting at the top and moving their way down.
Removing the Stump
You can choose to leave the stump in place. This can make it difficult to mow, however, and someone could trip over the stump. If someone drives in your yard, they may also hit the stump. Stumps can be decorated with potted plants and flowers if you do decide to keep them.
If you do not want the stump to stay, the tree removal service will grind the stump so you are only left with a hole in the ground. At this time you can decide to plant a new tree or plant grass seed in the area.

After we moved into our house, we knew that something had to be done about our trees. The branches looked off-kilter, and we could tell that someone had pruned them incorrectly at one time or another. Unfortunately, we weren't really sure how to repair the damage. A family friend talked with us about hiring a professional tree trimmer, and so we called them the next day. The difference that they made was astounding. They removed dead branches, trimmed up the shape, and let more sunlight through. My blog is all about improving the look of your trees by hiring a professional.
