The Hazards of Tree Removal and Why You Should Hire a Professional

Published On: December 24th, 20212.5 min read

Did you know that each year there are more than 100 tree-related deaths in the US and countless injuries? Although workers in the tree care industry make up a number of these, many of these incidents are homeowners attempting tree removal without professional help.

If you have trees that you want removed from your property, you need professional tree removal services.

Let us look at some of the dangers you face if you try to do it on your own and the reasons you should leave it to the pros.

Dangers of Tree Removal

Falling is one of the leading causes of tree-related deaths. If you need to trim branches before removing the tree, you are putting yourself at risk of a fall. To cut branches, you will have to wield heavy tools and this means climbing up and down ladders with those tools. This makes a fall much more likely.

Another danger of tree removal is being hit by trunks or branches. As you cut the tree, there may be loose branches that may fall on you or on your property. The risk of this type of danger is much higher if the tree is already dead.

If the tree is already dead or decaying, this can pose a significant danger. You will not know how the tree will fall. Gravity is not on your side when felling a tree that is not stable.

Keep in mind that if the tree falls on your property and it was not a professional doing the work, your homeowners’ insurance will not cover the damage.

Reasons to Hire Professionals

A professional tree removal company will have the insurance necessary to provide these services without putting your home at risk. If an accident occurs, you know their insurance will cover the damage. Professionals will also have safety protocols in place to minimize risks, allowing the workers and you to be safe at all times as the work begins.

Professional tree removal services have the exact tools they need to provide efficient and affordable services. They will be able to get the job done much more quickly than you would and without requiring that you go out and purchase tools.

You can expect post-removal cleaning from professional tree removal companies. They will clear debris and even remove the entire tree if that is what you prefer. They will inspect the yard for any concerns, providing advice on how to best maintain it, and they will remove rodents or other pests that the felled tree might have dislodged.

Professionals will know how to remove a tree without damaging nearby plants. Falling branches and debris can wreak havoc on your yard, but experts will be able to mitigate the damage and protect other trees and plants.

Another fantastic job by Justin's biz: Arbortech Tree Inc. Today 3 guys came and cut up and stacked a bunch of 8'-10'' lengths of the trees that were felled a couple of months ago. These guys don't rest until the work is done. They worked efficiently and safely. Totally recommend these guys. Thanks!!

We've used Arbortech Tree for two large jobs at our property. They were great to work with. Their team was well skilled with handling the removal of large trees that were near our home. They communicated well throughout the scheduling of the job. I would highly recommend Arbortech!

Professional, Skilled, Outstanding Customer Service, Reliable, Competitively Priced. March 15, 2022 Starting last October 2021, I had been trying to have five trees taken down in Thompson, Connecticut (northeast corner of the state) for my mother-in-law. I had spoken with a number of the local tree removal contractors in the northeast area. I spoke with four contractors over a period of two months, but only two of them came out and looked at the job; and only one provided me with a verbal quote. I spoke with him and set a date to remove the trees. The day came and they did not show up. I was finally able to speak with them two-weeks later after leaving multiple voicemails. They stated they would set another date for the removal and get back to me. Then silence. In January I reached out to Arbortech (Justin & Lindsey) as they had done tree work for me in the past at my home in Coventry. Arbortech went out to Thomson, looked at the job, and provided me with a quote for removal. Even though it was out of their normal work area, Justin stated he "liked a challenge" and this job was! Multiple trees close to the house, all with large limbs over the roof area, neighbors fixed gazebo below one of the trees, and limited access. We set a date, They showed up, the electric company showed up to drop the power lines and they got to work. By the end of the day the job was done. Justin and crew made it look like just another routine tree removal. I was duly impressed and awed at their skill and professionalism. Once again, when I need tree service, I know who to call first. If you need tree work, Arbortech should be at the top of your call list. 2019 Just had them take down 6 large tall trees for me, all surrounding my outbuilding and within 50 feet of my house. I chose Arbortech based on the reviews here. Needless to say, I made the right choice. If you need quality tree work at a reasonable price, consider Arbortech. I will be using them for future tree removal work.
