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.

These guys are FANTASTIC. Justin, Lindsey, their entire crew really great!! When Justin stopped by to take a look, he listened to what we wanted to accomplish, made suggestions on what to take, leave or just trim. His crew came as expected, did a GREAT job!! If it wasn't for the sign and missing trees you would never have known they were here. I could go on and on. Thank you!!!

We were so impressed with the whole team from Arbortech. Justin the owner was the first to respond to our quotes and was a pleasure to speak with, the office people, Lindsey, kept us up to date and we had the 'A' Team - Paul, Pete and Eric. The best way for me to describe the 'A' team is they are like artists. From their skill to their coordination to friendliness and beautiful clean up. . Marvel to watch. Would highly recommend this company and will use again in the future.

Very Happy with their customer service. There was a large dead tree pretty near my garage, the neighbor's garage, and another neighbor's home that really needed to get taken down. They came out and had it down in a few hours, had everything cleaned up right after. I plan to use them again myself and would definitely recommend them!

This is the second time we have used Arbortech to trim and cut down trees in our yard. After taking his time looking at the trees in question, Justin gave us his professional opinion as an arborist as to the work that needed to be done. The job was scheduled and the crew arrived promptly and did an amazing job! Paul accomplished much of this high up in the bucket equipment because of the height of the trees that needed to be taken down. It was incredible watching the men all work together. At the end of the job, the yard was cleaned up and the crew made sure we were happy with all their work. As an added bonus, we got a follow up call to make sure all had gone well, something you don't encounter much anymore! I highly recommend Arbortech for their knowledge and professionalism!!

I have used Arbortech now multiple times at my house and wouldn't use any other tree service company. Justin is fantastic to work with, he and his team were always incredibly professional, helpful, knowledgeable and just great to work with. For our most recent job, both Justin and Lindsey worked with us to meet a tight deadline for some other work we were having completed. Thank you again for all your help, we really appreciate it!!

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!
