What You Need To Know About Tree Removal

While trees are a great asset to many properties, there are times when they can cause issues. If you have a tree that seems problematic, a professional arborist may decide that the tree needs to be removed. Since 1980, Texas Trees has served the Dallas, TX area, assessing and removing trees throughout North Texas. If you think you need to have a tree removed, here’s what you need to know:

When does a tree need to be removed?

There are many reasons that trees need to be removed from the property. Some of the most common include: 

  • Trees that are in the way of new construction areas.
  • Trees that are taking too much natural light from other plants.
  • Trees that have grown too close to homes, sidewalks, or utility poles.
  • Trees that have been severely damaged by weather.
  • Trees that have fallen.
  • Trees that are diseased.

Texas Trees strives to do everything possible to keep trees around, but in many of these cases, there is no alternative to removal.

How much does tree removal cost?

A lot of factors go into determining the price of tree removal. To get an accurate quote on the cost of having a tree removed in Dallas, TX, one of our professional arborists will need to be onsite to assess the tree. 

Some of the factors that go into the cost of tree removal are:

  • Location – How close a tree is to surrounding structures is important. A tree in the middle of a field is easier to remove than one wedged between a utility pole and a busy street.
  • Size – Small trees can be removed quicker than older, larger trees.
  • Equipment Required – Some trees need a lot of work and require heavy equipment. In these cases, the cost is typically a bit higher.
  • Time – The biggest determining factor in cost is how long it will take to remove the tree. We strive to get all trees removed quickly and efficiently, but complex removals may require more hours and personnel.

Should stumps be removed too?

Some trees can be removed and leave the stump behind without much issue. In many cases, though, the stump may also need to be removed. Stumps eventually rot and when this happens, many bugs start to use it as their home. Carpenter ants and termites are not a problem in a stump that is sitting in a remote area but having a stump full of termites next to a home can lead to serious problems. Our professionals assess every job and will let you know if you need stump removal or grinding. 

Why use a professional?

Removing a tree is complex and requires a skilled arborist, specialized equipment, and heavy machinery to be done correctly. Improperly removing a tree can lead to serious problems, especially if the tree requiring removal is next to cars, people, homes, or power lines.
