Tree Removal Frequently Asked Questions

Tree RemovalThere are several questions that people will have when it comes to tree removal. Here are a few of the most common:  Why do you remove my tree? Do you have to chop down your trees? What’s the time frame for the removal? Can I bring a tree?

You can’t cut down your own tree. They have to be removed from the land and it is very much an invasive species. You’ll probably be able to pick them up and take them to another location if you have it taken care of, but they need to remove them from the land that will require an excavation process.

The one exception to this is if the tree service is a hand with natural root pruning that they can do in certain situations. For instance, if the tree has branches that are coming out of the ground (they could be spreading on the treetops or the trunk), then it can be removed from the place that they’re growing without having to get a really deep trench dug.

If you are fortunate enough to get rid of the roots of your tree by using this kind of process, it may be possible to set up a healthy environment for the other plants that were planted under the tree. But if the roots are under the ground, they can grow around the tree and take up all the moisture that you give them. And you don’t want that, because as you know, too much water makes the roots go into a metabolic shutdown, so you need to replenish that moisture and that means getting a pump in there.

The trees are likely going to be moved at some point, but you should be notified well in advance so that you have time to be out there. They may come by tractor, wheelbarrow, or skid loader. But that would mean that you’d have to pick them up and they’re not going to be removed in just a few minutes, it’s going to take them days or even weeks.

If you are worried about moving a tree service, you may want to call the Department of Transportation and see what their procedures are. They are usually available through this department for tree removal. They may ask you to pay a relocation fee, or maybe they just want to check your property so that they can know if it’s worth it to move your tree.

You can also use a tree removal service that is running a free tree removal service. These are service contracts where the trees are taken out. They are usually more costly than any other kind of tree removal, but there are no other costs.

It is a good idea to call your local and state tree commission or the state department of environmental protection if you are in an area where you have an endangered species problem and you need to remove a tree service that is damaging your home or putting off vegetation. It is their job to make sure that trees are safe in your community.

When you call your local or state tree service, ask them what kind of tree removal services they provide. You can also check with your city and ask what their policy is for tree removal. The best policy is to have it done by a professional tree service company.

With the tree removal processes that are now available, the question of whether you need to hire a tree service or call them in on your own is almost moot. Many people do it both ways, either they do it on their own or they call a professional to help.
