Trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, shade your property, and make it more beautiful. It is difficult to contemplate the removal of a tree but, unfortunately, sometimes tree removal in Kitchener is necessary in cases of severe damage or disease. If you have never had to have a tree removed before, here are some answers to questions you may have about the process.
What Does Tree Removal in Kitchener Involve?
What the process looks like depends partly on how your tree is situated on your property. It may be possible to bring the tree down all in one piece if there is enough space around the tree to allow it to fall safely. This is more common in rural areas.
In urban and suburban areas, it is more likely that the tree is close to power lines and buildings. If this is the case, it is not possible to bring the tree down all in one piece because it could damage the other structures as it falls. Instead, we cut the tree into sections and take it down piece by piece, securing each segment so we can control its fall and prevent it from causing property damage or personal injury.
What Do You Need To Do To Prepare for Tree Removal?
“What do I need to do after calling a tree removal service near me?” you may ask yourself. Tree removal professionals require the cooperation of the property owner. To make the process as safe and efficient as possible, there are some steps you have to take ahead of time to prepare your property.
- If you have any breakable items in the vicinity of the tree to be removed, such as furniture or planters, move these away from the tree before the technicians arrive. If we have to remove these items ourselves, the removal process takes more time, which therefore costs you more money.
- Animals in the yard pose a safety hazard to the workers as well as themselves. Keep pets inside during the tree removal process.
- The tree removal process involves several large vehicles, usually a wood chipper and sometimes a crane. You need to make sure that these vehicles have room to park as close to your property as possible. You may have to reserve several parking spaces temporarily.
- Make sure that the workers have a clear path to go back and forth between the tree and their vehicles. This may mean informing your neighbours beforehand to gain their cooperation.
