How do I know if removing my tree is the best option?
We're glad to come out to help determine whether removing your tree is the best option for you.
Here are some reasons that we take into consideration when advising property owners whether or not to remove a tree. You may also have to remove or grind the stump left behind.
My tree is dead
At first glance, this reason seems obvious, but some people question whether a dead tree actually needs to be removed. As a professional tree service, we always advise removing dead trees as they can become hazardous. Trees that are no longer alive can fall over, large branches can fall, and lend other hazards to structures and people. In addition, they can become a haven for pests that can migrate to your home. Be proactive in removing your dead tree.
Here’s a preliminary inspection you can do yourself. Start by scratching a tiny piece of bark off of a few twigs on the tree. If the layer under the bark is dry and brown, your tree may be in trouble.

My tree is in a bad location
If your tree is planted too close to your home or building, it may cause issues down the road as its branches and roots grow. Trees can also present an issue if they are growing into areas with power lines or those with roots near sewer or water lines. Over-adventurous roots can also cause damage to property as well as sidewalks. Although it isn’t an ideal solution, if the tree is going to present a problem later, it should probably be removed.

My trees were poorly planted
Poor planning for tree planting can look like multiple trees planted too closely together. As the trees grow larger, they may look strange and also cause issues for one another. Removing a few trees to open up the pattern can make the space needed for the other trees to thrive.
My tree is too messy
If you've had to clean up your tree's mess time and time again, you know how inconvenient it can get, especially when the tree is in an area that you use frequently. Needles, seeds, and fruit are maintenance clean-up nightmares. You may want to opt for a lower maintenance tree.
