Ah, trees. They provide the shade that protects us from the blazing sun, they’re home to many of our favorite species and animals and, most importantly, they play a key role in keeping us alive. Of course, it is the best option to keep trees standing, but there are particular instances when a tree needs to go. In such cases, VOSS Landscape & Tree Service is here to help.
Tree removal, as well as tree pruning, are difficult and often unsafe tasks. Save the time and money by hiring professionals. Professionals at VOSS have the latest techniques and climbing equipment in the tree removal business. They also practice the International Standards of Arborists which means they can effectively evaluate a tree’s health and answer any tree care questions you may have.
If 50 percent of the overall tree is damaged, it may be time to get rid of it. First, look at the trunk because major damage to this section of the tree will validate a removal. Next, see if there are large, dead, or damaged branches. If more than ¼ of the branches are damaged, then this is also an indicator for tree removal. Other factors to look for when evaluating your tree are:
If you need help determining if your tree needs to go, Voss has the knowledge and expertise.
Dying and damaged trees can be harmful to you and your family, especially ones that are near homes, sheds and powerlines. When a tree or its limbs fall, the property can be damaged as well as your manicured landscape. Trees reaching the height of power lines can pose power outages and property damage. Diseased trees can potentially serve as a problem for surrounding healthy trees and also have the possibility of collapsing.
With any of these cases, we highly recommend hiring a professional. Removing trees surrounding other property is dangerous work and should be done by someone with the right tools.
Deciding when the best time to remove a tree can be difficult. When it is uncertain if the health of the tree is completely gone, people tend to choose tree trimming. Tree trimming can reduce the potential for tree or branch failure and can often help maintain or improve the health of your trees. People also choose to prune to provide clearance and to improve the beauty of their property. VOSS can also provide your property’s proper pruning if tree removal is out of the picture.
Unhealthy and damaged trees can pose a threat to you and your family’s safety. Tree removal can be a hazardous task, but experts at Voss are licensed and insured professionals who are ready to evaluate your tree situation and provide the reliable services you deserve.
