A Necessary Tree Service
Tree cutting, or tree removal, is often necessary due to damage or disease. Sometimes it's by choice of a property owner. There are several reasons for tree removal and ways to do it safely.
Do You Need To Cut Down Your Tree?
After a bad storm, trees can become damaged - the damage may be apparent, and you may need or want the tree cut down. What about the less obvious tree damage?
It's never a bad idea to have trees on your property examined by your local arborists. Signs of damage or disease may not be as evident as we hope. Arborists can identify diseases or infestations, preventing further damage or disease spread.
Some diseases and infestations are native to Illinois. They are classified as threatening and non-threatening - common threatening conditions include Dutch Elm Disease, Cankers, Wilt, and Blight. There are signs to indicate a disease exists. If the signals are missed, the tree may become disfigured or compromised. If the damage is extensive and the tree's integrity is compromised - having the tree removed by your local tree cutting service is the safest option.
Native threatening species are destructive, but the biggest concern to tree professionals is threatening invasive species. Invasive species are more of a threat as it takes time and resources to develop eradication methods. Often, invasive species lack natural predators allowing populations to grow out of control very quickly.
Invasive species were accidentally introduced to the region and wreak havoc on native plants. In Illinois, the Emerald Ash Borer, Two Lined Chestnut Borer, Zimmerman Pine Moth, Bronze Birch Borer, Gypsy Moth, and Asian Longhorned Beetle. Often, larvae are found in the tree's life-giving layers – in the water transporting layer underneath the bark or in the roots. Their larvae location is what makes the infestations challenging to spot.
Tree professional may recommend a tree with an infestation be removed, and the wood is taken away to prevent further spread to other trees in the area.
Choosing To Cut Down Your Tree
As a property owner, you may need to have a tree removed for other reasons. Perhaps you want to plant a garden that needs more sun, or you have small children, and an extensive root system is a tripping hazard, or maybe you have a tree that drops a lot of debris, and it's too much to keep up with year after year. No matter what your reason, your tree-cutting professionals are here to help.
Hiring a Tree Cutting Service
We recommend using tree service professionals for your tree removals. Cutting down trees can be a hazardous task when not performed correctly. Professionals have the equipment and expertise to remove your tree with training to limit people and property risks.
Cutting down large, mature trees, professionals will use a large truck with a bucket to start at the top - cutting back branches to reduce the tree's top-heavy weight. They may use a system of ropes and pullies to control how each section falls.
Medium to small trees still requires caution. Using a ladder without the proper experience is dangerous. As weight is cut away from the tree, the tree will move, and branches may rise. The unsafe placement could cause the ladder to push or topple over.
Our tree service professionals will get the job done safely and often offer a haul-a-way service to remove the tree from your property. Infested trees should be hauled away to prevent spread.
