Spring tree removal is often a hard decision. The last thing you want is a big gap in your landscape, just as everything else is springing to life. Sometimes, however, you have little choice. In this article, Arbor Green Tree Service LLC, a certified team of arborists offering tree removal services in Milford, CT, explains more about the removal of trees in spring.
When Is the Best Time for the Removal of Trees?
A professional arborist will advise winter or early spring tree removal. Because the ground is colder and drier, removing the dead tree causes less disruption to the surrounding landscape.
If you fell the tree while it has no leaves, there is also less debris to remove.
When Is the Least Expensive Time to Remove a Tree?
Expert tree services tend to have a lull in service in February and March after the holiday season rush. As trees are dormant in winter, it is also a time when there is less work for an arborist.
However, we recommend contacting the service as early as possible, especially if a tree is threatening surrounding structures.
How Much Does Tree Removal from Expert Tree Care Services Cost?
Several factors determine how much it will cost to cut down the tree, including, but not limited to, the following:
- The complexity of the job
- Nearby structures or power lines
- The tree’s condition
- Potential risk
- Removal of wood and debris
- Stump grinding or removal
Simple Year-Round Maintenance Tips
Proactive maintenance improves your tree’s health and look. While it’s better to trim branches while the tree is dormant, you can remove broken limbs or perform a quick tidy-up at any time of the year.
We do, however, recommend keeping the majority of this work late in the fall or early in the winter. This way, the tree won’t bleed as much, and there is less chance of infection from disease or pests.
Should You Fell the Tree Yourself?
If the tree is still a sapling that is easy to remove, you can perform the job safely. If you’re dealing with a larger, more established tree, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Not only do they have the expertise to remove heavy branches safely, but they also have the necessary equipment.
Many property owners underestimate how heavy each branch is, and it is easy to make mistakes. Unfortunately, when that branch comes crashing down, it can cause extensive property damage or injuries.
What’s more, the trunk doesn’t always behave as you think it should. If you accidentally unbalance the canopy, the whole tree can come crashing down onto your home, car, or street.
