Having trees on and around your property is a joy. They’re great to look at and provide shade and shelter to your yard, so you can relax and spend time with your family. However, if a tree is damaged, diseased or dead, you may need to have it removed. Leaving a dead tree can be dangerous as it may fall or lose branches in heavy weather - or even without warning. This can damage your home and would pose an obvious threat to anyone who is nearby, including your family and friends - or your customers and employees in the case of a commercial building.
When do you need tree removal?
The experienced team at Tree Service Pros of Meridian will tell you that you may well need a tree removed if you spot holes or chipped bark in the trunk or larger branches, or if you see large branches which are obviously dead in the crown of the tree. Fungi growing at the base of the trunk is another tell-tale sign that the tree is dead and could be dangerous if left alone. You may also need a tree removed if it has been damaged by the wind or weather - in this case, you may notice the tree has started to come down or lost limbs already. Call us urgently if you think the tree is dangerous and may fall onto your property or in an area where there is a danger to life.
Can I remove a tree myself?
The short answer - in almost all cases - is no. Tree removal requires expert knowledge and skill, and equipment most homeowners simply don’t have. You may well need to work at height with dangerous power tools, which can pose a threat to both yourself and others if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. Don’t risk it. Give Tree Service Pros of Meridian a call if you need help!
Why bother with tree removal?
Trees which are dead due to age, disease or other factors - or those which have been damaged seriously in high winds or heavy weather - can be dangerous. Dead trees may drop limbs or come down entirely, with little or no warning. This can damage your property if the tree is overhanging at all and causes an obvious danger to anyone nearby. The trees in your yard should offer a pleasant shaded place to relax, and for your kids to play - but if they are dead or irreparably damaged, they could actually be a threat.
Our tree removal service
Our tree removal service starts with a site visit and assessment, to check the damage or state of the tree in question. Our team will confirm if the tree does need to be removed - or if we can take other steps to protect and support the tree, such as trimming or bracing. If the tree does need to be removed entirely, we will provide a free no obligation estimate for the work, and book to carry out the job as soon as is convenient for you.
