Tree removal – whether it’s pruning dead or heavy branches or removing tree stump and large root matter - is dangerous. There’s so much that can go wrong if the process is not managed correctly, which is why it is recommended that homeowners not attempt such a task themselves, but rather call in a qualified professional arborist. An arborist is someone who is trained in planting, caring for, and maintaining trees.
Cutting up and removing the branches and the trunk of a fallen tree can be the easiest part of the clean up. However, after you clean up these parts, you’re left with the stump. And, the best method for removing the stump depends on the type of the tree, size of the stump, and how patient you are.
Do-it-yourself enthusiasts can easily purchase chemicals that rot the stump, but in most cases they're toxic and can take months to fully complete the process. So, for those people who want the tree stump removed ASAP, taking the time to hire a qualified tree removal stump removal service is essential. Safety and training are needed to prevent damage from the removal.
There are plenty of less credible tree companies out there, so knowing how to hire a reputable tree removal professional can save you in the long-term. Firstly, find out if they hold relevant certification credentials and licenses. Next, ask for proof of insurance and then be sure to verify coverage with their insurance company. Hiring an uninsured tree removalist may make you liable for any damages or injuries that occur while they’re on the job at your place. Ask to see references or testimonials from past customers and ideally check that they’re real.
Remember that good tree work by professionals is worth the expense; however, poor work, no matter the price paid, can cost you a great deal in the long run
