Tree Removal and Stump Removal
- by siteadmin
Stumps can be an eyesore, safety risk and attract pests; their maintenance requirements become difficult as well. Professional stump grinding provides a cost-effective solution that addresses these concerns.
Chemical stump removal involves pouring a liquid (usually potassium nitrate) directly onto the stump to speed up decay and is best done during winter and early spring months.
Dead or Dying Trees
Dead or dying trees can easily fall during extreme weather conditions, with their decayed branches damaging roofs, cars or anything in their path. To minimize injuries or property damages caused by these dead or dying trees, it is usually better to have them removed rather than risk injury or property loss.
Dependent upon its type and condition, trees may be saved through pruning or physical support to keep it upright. If a tree appears to be dying for some time, however, it's wise to consult a tree service professional in order to get an outside opinion and decide whether or not removal should occur.
Stumps can be unsightly and create trip hazards on your property, while decayed stumps attract pests like carpenter ants and termites. Furthermore, dead tree removal usually results in an unwanted stump which encourages the growth of invasive weeds that spread disease to living trees nearby. When taking down dead trees for removal purposes, make sure to include stump grinding so the area remains safe and appealing once more.
Storms often blow trees into leaning positions that they cannot always recover from, often close to structures like homes, power lines or vehicles. A professional tree service should advise against leaving these leaning trees standing and may suggest removal as part of their service offering.
Even healthy trees may begin to decline over time due to factors like soil erosion, windy conditions and poor planting sites. Furthermore, changing weather patterns have an adverse impact on some species of trees more than others.
Staking young trees that are starting to lean can be an effective solution to keep them upright, but for mature ones that refuse to correct themselves naturally, removal may be necessary. This is especially true if a sudden lean develops as this often indicates root weaknesses which could eventually lead to their collapse. Furthermore, leaning trees that encroach on power lines or are near your home should be immediately taken down by a qualified tree service professional
Diseased or Infested Trees
A tree with significant cracking, vertical seams or extensive decay on its trunk should be immediately removed as diseased trees spread their pathogens to nearby plants and trees, ultimately polluting soil quality.
Dead or dying trees often attract pests such as termites, carpenter ants and wood-boring beetles that can invade and damage healthy trees on your property, including your home. These pests can harm or destroy remaining healthy plants and structures on your land as well as infiltrate into it to spread infection or cause damage.
Further, rotting stumps and roots can continue to spread their reach, lifting sidewalks or driveways, breaking sewer pipes or creating unsightly landscape features that are difficult and expensive to eliminate. When removing a stump it's best to include stump grinding as part of the removal process so all remains can be ground below ground level for complete elimination of hazardous, unsightly, costly nuisance in your yard.
If there's a stump taking up valuable real estate in your yard, now may be the time to remove it. Stumps are unsightly and can damage mowing equipment; additionally, they attract unwelcome pests like termites or carpenter ants which could spread diseases to healthy trees nearby and compromise their wellbeing.
Over time, fungus growing on a stump can begin to decay the wood underneath, eventually leading to instability or leaning of the stump itself. At this point, professional tree removal services should assess and recommend removal.
Wherever you live, depending on the state or jurisdiction, obtaining a permit to remove a stump and its roots could add significantly to the cost of tree removal. Furthermore, if its roots become entangled with underground pipes or utilities then expect additional charges; also expect increased extraction charges if its location involves highly rocky or tight soil conditions requiring extra effort for removal.
