Tree Removal: 7 Reasons to Hire a Professional for the Job

If there’s a dead, sick, injured or otherwise damaged tree on your property, you’ll need to remove it as soon as possible. This is because it could damage your property and also threatens the safety of yourself and others. Here are seven sound reasons why you should hire a professional to do the job.

1.      Experience

Cutting down a tree and then removing it from your yard requires experience. A local arborist will be able to assess the specifics of the tree as well as all environmental factors that come into play in order to safely removing it.

2.      Knowledge

In addition to experience, professional arborists have the training and knowledge required to operate the tools and equipment involved. Improper operation could result in injuries and damage to your property.

3.      Cost

If you’re worried about the cost of hiring professionals, there are a few things you should think about. First, a dead, damaged or diseased tree can easily lead to injuries or property damage. Second, you my need to purchase expensive equipment and even there you’ll end up having to pay someone to remove the fallen tree and the stump from your yard. In contrast, hiring a professional is a one-time expense.

4.      Liability

Tree removal can be dangerous. Falling branches could seriously injure you, a member of your family, or anyone who walks onto your property such as a delivery person. If they or a neighbour gets injured, you could be liable.

5.      Safety

No matter how handy you are, tree removal isn’t something you should DIY. An accident could result in serious or fatal injuries and cause extensive and costly property damage. Removing a tree is best left to trained professionals, who can complete the task safely.

6.      Equipment

Cutting down a tree and removing it from your property safely and efficiently requires equipment that most homeowners don’t have, such as cranes, chippers and stump grinders.

7.      Insurance

Any damage caused by a tree cutter will be covered by their insurance polocy. If you damage your home in the process of cutting down a tree, chances are your insurance company won’t cover the expense.
