Tree removal is sometimes the only option for a tree on your property, and although cutting down trees isn’t something Viking Tree Service likes to do – we’d much rather be helping you grow healthy trees! – we will do tree removal services if our customer requests it or if we see that there is a need for the tree to be removed.
When you call Viking Tree Service, you can talk with our helpful associate over the phone about the reasons you think a tree on your property should be removed. They can sometimes advise you over the phone about these matters, but more than likely, we’re going to want to take a look at it before we agree to remove the tree. On a side note, any company that will blindly agree to come out and remove a tree without looking at it first is probably not your best bet. This is a sign that they are either lazy or that they don’t know much about the many other services that area available to their customers before complete tree removal, a last resort for Viking Tree Service!
We promise to always present our customers will all of their options concerning their trees. Removal is the only thing we can do in some cases, but there is usually another option that will allow you to keep the tree.
Viking Tree Service keeps the health and safety of your trees, your home, and your family in mind when we consider removing a tree completely. Here are some of the situations that may warrant tree removal:
A dead tree becomes brittle and weak. The least little wind or shift in weight from other trees surrounding it could cause it to fall. There’s really no reason to let a dead tree hang around. Besides being dangerous, dead trees are ugly and can make your property look unkempt and old. Rather than putting your loved ones and your property at risk for a tree that could fall at any time, have Viking Tree Service remove that dead tree.
If a tree has a few diseased branches, it may be possible to just remove those branches and preserve the rest of the tree. However, if the disease or pests are allowed to spread, the tree could be at risk for infecting others around it. In this case, tree removal is the best choice because it is the only thing that will protect the rest of your trees.
Any time a tree is too close to something else – a fence, garage, home, etc. – it puts those things at risk in the event that the tree were to fall. If a tree becomes lopsided because of irregular growth or amateur pruning, it can be heavier on one side than the other. If it’s not possible to prune it back into a regular shape, Viking Tree Service can remove the tree so that it does not cause any future issues.
Similarly, when a tree grows very large, its branches can hang over large structures such as your home or driveway. These branches are always a falling risk, but they can also cause other problems. For example, mold can grow on surfaces covered by tree branches, making them slick and dangerous. Tree removal is a good solution if overhanging branches have consistently been giving you trouble.
Obtrusive root system
When a tree grows very tall above the ground, you can be sure that there’s an extensive root system holding it in place. These roots will push up concrete and paver stones, make appearances all throughout your manicured lawn, and wrap themselves around water lines. If a tree in your yard has a root system that is getting out of control, let Viking Tree Service remove it for you!
Wrong size or purpose for its space
Sometimes, people choose the wrong size or type of tree for a given purpose. A tree that was supposed to increase the privacy level on your property may have been planted too close to a fence or has grown too tall to create a barrier between your property and your neighbor’s. The solution is to remove the tree and plant a new one in its place.
Tree removal should only be done by trained professionals. Safety is a huge concern when you are taking down a tree of any size. It takes the right skills, training, and equipment to ensure that the job gets done right, so trust none other than Viking Tree Service for your tree removal needs!
