Deciding to cut down a tree is never easy. Especially if it has been on your property for decades. It may have provided your family shade from the sun, or maybe it was the structure for the tire swing in your backyard. No matter what it offered, your family may have a sentimental attachment to the tree.
Because of this attachment, it may feel like there is never a right time to cut down a beloved tree. But our tree removal Kitchener experts suggest that if a tree has become damaged, decayed, dead, or weak, removing it is best.
By removing a dangerous tree, you can protect your home and the rest of your property. Taking it down on your terms with a trained arborist means you have more control. The last thing you want is for it to fall on its own.
When to Call a Tree Removal Kitchener Expert?
Just as trees require specific care when they are growing and thriving, many factors can decide when it is time to remove the tree. This makes it difficult to pinpoint an exact time that is best to cut it down without seeing it in person. However, there are a few rules that can be followed to narrow it down.
If a tree has roots upheaving, it is leaning, or if it is a threat to you or a nearby structure, you should contact Martin’s Tree Service today, no matter what time of year it is. Trees that are diseased or infested could affect other trees that are nearby. This means that if a tree has a pest such as an emerald ash borer, you should act fast.
If the tree has a less severe problem, one of the best times of year to remove it is during its dormant season, between late winter and early spring. This time of year has much more to do with the ease for the arborist rather than the tree itself. When a tree becomes dormant, they are leafless, making the branches lighter and easier to handle. For trees such as pines that don’t have bare branches, the frozen ground can help other plants around the tree stay in place as the crews work around them.
Is There an Expensive Time to Remove Trees?
Some people may have heard that it is more expensive to remove trees in the summer. While we are not sure where this myth started, we can tell you that there are many more details that go into deciding on the cost of removing a tree other than just the season. The price can depend on the size of the tree, the location, and the needs of the specific tree.
