The Basics of Tree Removal
Trees in SoCal neighborhoods are often surrounded by other valuable plants, trees or structures. For that reason, Southern California tree removals often require the use of state-of-the-art machinery. Our highly trained personnel can assess the conditions of your landscape, the branch architecture, and the soundness of your tree in order to determine what equipment will be necessary during tree removal services.
A standard tree removal includes taking down a tree, chipping all brush, cutting all wood into 20″ logs, and cutting the stumps as flush as possible to the ground. We also provide stump routing and wood disposal services at an additional charge. If you don’t purchase wood removal services, the resulting wood will be stacked at or near the base of the tree. Depending on the health of the tree at the time of removal, the logs may be suitable for firewood.
At Green Leaf Trees, we know how to accomplish the job while ensuring the safety and the protection of your home!
Signs You Need Large Tree Removal
Trees in danger of failure are obvious candidates for removal. A sound tree becomes potentially dangerous when the tree’s woody structure is weakened by one or more defects. Defects are detectable signs that a tree has an increased potential to fail, such as large cracks.
Cracks form when the load exceeds the capacity of the stem to withstand the load. Cracks can occur in branches, stems or roots. The wood behind the crack may be sound, decayed, or missing (cavity). Cracks are particularly hazardous when they compromise the structure of the tree by splitting the stem in two or when another defect, such as internal decay and a crack do not provide enough sound wood in the outer shell to support the tree. If this happens, it’s time to invest in tree removal
The presence of multiple cracks and decay indicates a very defective tree. Homeowners and property managers are advised that tree failure is a major cause of property damage. Rain or high wind can cause a cracked tree to fall under its own weight.
Can YOU DIY LARGE TREE REMOVAL?
In most cases, we would recommend that homeowners DO NOT try to remove large trees themselves. Tree removal or trimming is a highly delicate and technical task. Aside from the dangers involved, a person who does not have the right tools will be unable to successfully remove a tree. Only fully licensed arborist companies can provide you with safe and efficient tree removal services.
