Tree Removal

While trees often beautify a property, not every tree lives forever, is suited for the space, or is beneficial. For that reason, you may require our tree removal services, which include general purpose removal, hazardous removal, crane removal and storm damage removal.

Oftentimes, a customer may wonder if a tree on their property requires removal. To know for sure, our professionals can visit for a free on-site estimate and tree risk assessment. Here’s what we’ll be evaluating…

Is your tree a desirable species?

What characterizes an “undesirable” tree?

Think: weak wood prone to breakage and dropping debris, shallow root systems that damage lawns and pavements, diseased specimens and those infested with insects, or those of an invasive species that reseed in the surrounding landscape.

Undesirable species include: black locust, Siberian elm, box elder, mulberry, poplars, Bradford pear, Norway maple, tree of heaven, mimosa, empress tree and willows.

Is your tree damaged?

For those trees with 50 percent or more damage, removal is likely the best option. Trees in decline can survive for quite some time though they experience abnormal growth and can be unattractive. We will access the trunk for vertical cracks, seams, dead branch stubs or large, older wounds, which can suggest internal decay. If the circumference is seeing 25 percent or less damage, the tree should be able to heal. We will also determine if the tree is hollow, and to what extent. The xylem and phloem, life support tissue for the tree, are both located on its exterior, making it possible for a tree to live for years even though the interior is hollowed or rotten.

Typically, if one third or more of the tree’s interior is damaged, it should be removed.

Is the branch system healthy?

Our professionals will evaluate the branch system of any tree in question. For trees experiencing 25 percent or less of branch damage, there is a strong possibility the tree will survive. Crossed or rubbing branches should be removed and narrow branch angles, especially those in the main trunk, should be corrected as they are prone to splitting. It’s best to do this early on in the tree’s life and the service is usually best performed by one of our arborists.

Our arborist will also access any tree with dead branches on a single side as it can be a symptom of root or trunk damage.

Are there new sprouts or branches?

If there are sprouts or small branches growing at the trunk of a tree, they could be an indicator that the tree is experiencing stress. This often occurs in trees suffering injury from new home construction or over-exposure to the sun after a forest is thinned or soil has been compacted. An arborist should evaluate this situation and should be called if you see fungus growth as it can signal internal rot.

Situational causes for removal

If a tree is leaning more than 15 percent from vertical, removal is recommended. In the event that you have a tree under running power lines, such trees should be thinned so that they reach no more than 25-feet high. This is never a job to tackle yourself as an interaction with power lines can be a deadly one.

Consider environmental factors

We’ll discuss the tree’s care history, such as previous pruning jobs, any change in the soil level over the root system or a shift in the amount of sunlight it receives.

Great customer service by a hard working Veteran owed company. I will only ever use Weber Land and Tree for my tree and landscaping needs. If I ever need snow removal services I will definitely be using them as well.

I would highly recommend this company! During the estimate I expressed my concern with property damage referring to my lawn, shrubs and other immovable objects. After a detailed conversation on how the work will be preform I was confident it would be done to my standards and they exceeded my expectations. The crew did phenomenal work. I would rate 10 stars if possible.

More causes for tree removal

Some other recommendations for removal are more preventative in nature. For example, it’s best to not allow trees to grow close to your home. Best practice is to keep trees at least 20 feet from your property. Smaller trees, including dogwoods, can get as close as 6 feet. Other things to ask yourself may include:
^

Will other trees benefit from a tree’s removal?

^

Does a tree interfere with traffic, visibility, etc.?

^

Does the tree have historical or sentimental value? If yes, you may want to give more grace in trying to save it.

We can help answer all of your tree removal questions and to formulate a beneficial plan for your property. Don’t spend time worrying about what to do. Let us help! And don’t put an assessment off for fear of costs, as the expense a damaged tree may cause could far outweigh the price of preventative measures.
