What should I expect? 

When getting a tree removed, you can expect a process that involves several key steps:

  1. Assessment:

    • A professional arborist will assess the tree's health, size, location, and any potential risks. They will determine the best approach for removal.

  2. Quotation:

    • You will receive a detailed quote outlining the scope of work, services included, and the estimated cost. Ensure you understand the quote and ask any necessary questions.

  3. Scheduling:

    • Once you agree to the quote, the removal will be scheduled. The timing may depend on factors like weather conditions, permits, and the company's availability.

  4. Permits (if required):

    • Some areas may require permits for tree removal. 

  5. Preparation:

    • On the scheduled day, the removal team will arrive with equipment. They may take precautions to protect nearby structures and landscaping.

  6. Tree Removal:

    • The arborists will use specialized equipment to safely remove the tree. This may involve cutting it down in sections or using cranes for larger trees.

  7. Stump Removal (if requested):

    • If you opt for stump removal, the crew will use a stump grinder to eliminate the remaining tree stump.

  8. Debris Cleanup:

    • After the tree is removed, the crew will clean up the debris, including branches, leaves and sawdust.

  9. Final Inspection:

    • A final inspection of the site will be conducted to ensure all debris is cleared, and the property is left in a satisfactory condition. Ideally, this will be done with you present. 

  10. Payment and Documentation:

    • You'll receive an invoice, and after reviewing it, you can make the payment as agreed upon. We will then send out a reciept as proof of payment.

What are the risks? 

Getting a tree removed involves some obvious and not so obvious risks.

Visible Risks Include:

  1. Electrical Hazards: Trees near power lines pose a risk of electrical shock or outage during removal. A professional arborist should coordinate with utility companies to address this risk.

  2. Equipment Use: Operation of heavy machinery, chainsaws, and other equipment during tree removal can lead to injuries if not handled properly.

  3. Structural Damage: The falling tree or limbs can damage structures, fences, or other elements on the property if not carefully managed.


Hidden Risks Include: 

  1. Inadequate Insurance Coverage:

    • Some tree removal services may lack comprehensive insurance, exposing homeowners to potential liability in case of accidents, injuries, or property damage during the removal process.

  2. Lack of Permits:

    • Failure to secure necessary permits for tree removal can result in legal issues. 

  3. Substandard Equipment:

    • The use of outdated or poorly maintained equipment poses risks during tree removal. Professional services invest in modern, well-maintained machinery to ensure safety and efficiency.

  4. Inadequate Cleanup/After Service care:

    • Some services may not provide thorough cleanup after tree removal, leaving debris or causing damage to the property. A comprehensive service includes proper cleanup to leave the property in good condition.
