Tree Removal

Trees are always welcome in a home landscape, but when a tree becomes diseased or severely damaged, sometimes removal is the only option. Due to the high risk of injury and property damage, tree removal is not a job to take lightly. While you can safely remove small trees yourself, for large ones, it’s best to call in a pro. Suburban Tree Service tree removal technicians have the skills and equipment necessary to remove even large, badly decayed trees with minimal risk.

The cost of tree removal depends on the particular tree. To provide an accurate estimate of the cost to remove a tree, a Suburban Tree Service technician should see the tree in person. The main factors used to determine the cost to remove a tree are: its location and size, any particular client specificatons, the equipment needed, any safety and risk concerns, the size of the crew needed and the length of time it will take to complete the removal.

Tree Trimming/Pruning

Trees are generally trimmed for one of three reasons: aesthetics, safety or health.

  • Aesthetics – Pruning a tree effectively helps to maintain its shape and appearance. However, you shouldn’t try to impose an unnatural shape or size on a tree. The amount of trimming and pruning that will be needed could seriously damage it.
  • Safety – Dead or broken branches and limbs can fall off at any time, which is a serious safety hazard. If the branches of a tree obstruct your vision while driving, they should be trimmed away. Finally, tree limbs and branches occasionally grow too close to power lines. Contact your local utility company to handle such issues.
  • Health – It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by strategically pruning away affected branches and limbs. Thinning the crown of a tree improves airflow, which can be very beneficial. If branches are crossing or rubbing together, they should be trimmed, or removed so that they don’t fall unexpectedly.

In order to provide a service estimate, a Suburban Tree Service technician will come out to your property for a walk-through to thoroughly assess your trees.

Tree Trimming Tips:

  • It is best to trim or prune a tree during its dormant season. Although you can technically prune a pine tree at any time, it is still better to do so when it is dormant. The only exception is when a hazard exists.
  • Be conscientious about the size of the branch that you are going to remove. If it is less than five centimeters in diameter, removing it is fine. If it is between five and 10 centimeters in diameter, you might not want to do it. If it is more than 10 centimeters in diameter, you should only do so if you have a really good reason.
  • Only trim branches that have weak, V-shaped, narrow angles. Retain branches that have strong, U-shaped angles.
  • When pruning is complete, the ratio of living crown to tree height should be two-thirds.
  • Try to prune away branches when they are young. They are much easier to manage at that point, and the risk of leaving nasty scars is much lower.
  • Don’t trim a branch too close or too long. You shouldn’t leave a large stub or remove the branch collar.
