Tree and Stump Removal May Require a Professional Team of Landscapers

Lawn maintenance

You still remember the day the bentwood willow tree was planted. Your dad brought it to your home in a five gallon bucket. It was just a twig with roots that had grown in the water in the bucket. It did not look like much, but just as your dad suggested, you planted the skinny little thing and propped it up with a string and a metal fence post. That little plant survived winter storms of snow and ice and spring storms of wind gusts and hail. Laughing that it would ever serve its intended purpose, you waited for the day that it would block the view of the unsightly utility boxes that sat at the back of your lot.
Within ten years the large tree with the hanging limbs covered in small leaves would sway in the wind a provide a whispering backdrop to family meals on the deck and volleyball games in the yard. It provided shade to the now greenest part of the yard and, yes, it did hide those unattractive utility boxes.
And then, one winter the ice must have been too much and the cold must have lasted too long, because in the blink of an eye the tree that your father helped plant was barely sporing any new leaves. Upon further inspection, the landscaping company confirmed that it was dead. Better to schedule tree removal now than pay for expensive fence or roof damage if it came down on its own during another storm.
Although your father had actually helped your husband remove another fairly large tree in the front yard six years ago, even he said it would be best to hire professional for this tree removal. The proximity to both your roof and the neighbor’s roof made the task a little more difficult. It took most of a day and the work of a crew of five, but the tree finally came down. A picture of your two teenage daughters standing on the remaining stump is a reminder of just how big that small twig had grown.
Tree Removal Often Requires a Team of Skilled Workers to Avoid Damage to Homes, Fences, and Other Landscaping
Trees serve many purposes in a home. For instance, a Texas AandM University study indicates that just looking at trees can produce ?significant recovery from stress? in just five minutes. In addition, planting windbreaks and shade trees can reduce winter heating bills in some areas of the country by 15%. Air conditioning needs can be reduced by 75%. This means that by simply planting three properly placed trees home owners could save between $100 and $250 a year in energy costs, according to a study published by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Even the most beautiful trees, however, can become a burden if they need to be removed. Both tree removal and tree stump removal often require hiring professionals. Using a combination of ladders and ropes hired landscapers are able to safely remove trees and take away all of the large pieces of wood and smaller branches and limbs.
