It is definitely not easy to remove a tree that has been in your yard for years. However, if the tree is posing a hazard because it is dead, rotting, damaged, or weak, eliminating it is the best course to take.
Removing the tree will prevent any damage that a fallen limb, branch, or tree can cause to your property or even to human life. That is why removing the hazardous tree should be done as soon as possible before anything catastrophic happens.
After deciding that the tree has to be taken down, the next question to answer is when is the best time to remove it.
When is it best to remove a tree?
A tree that is leaning and has its roots lifting is a real hazard and should be eliminated immediately. Do not wait further before calling a certified arborist to take down problematic trees. If the tree is posing real danger there is no better time to have it removed but right away. In addition, trees that are infested and are diseased should be removed to avoid affecting the neighboring trees.
If your tree is not under any of the mentioned circumstances, then it is best to remove it in the dormant season. This season is between late winter and early spring. Removing the tree during this season is recommended because trees are leafless and lighter during their dormant season. Therefore, it will be easier for the tree service company to cut it down.
Eliminating the tree requires assessment so that we can ensure that it will have a desirable result. There may be a better time to remove a specific tree and the best way to find out is to seek help from a professional arborist.
Is there a time when it is cheap to cut down a tree?
There are a lot of factors to consider in determining the pricing for removing a tree. The total cost may depend on the species of the tree, its location, and size, not really on the season.
It may cost higher if you decide to use professional service because they are skilled and they have the proper equipment needed to complete the process. They also have the crucial insurance that will ensure that you will not be held financially responsible for any damages when they are working in your property. Tree removal can be dangerous and should be done by those who know the process well.
