Process We Follow for Dangerous or Difficult Tree Removal

Initial Site Evaluation

When you call us to remove a potentially hazardous tree, our first step is to schedule an appointment and thoroughly assess the tree and surrounding site conditions. We look at factors like:

  • Tree height, width, and overall size
  • Lean and direction tree may fall naturally
  • Proximity to home, power lines, fences, and other structures
  • Amount of dead branches and other defects
  • Obstructions like other trees or wires
  • Soil condition and room to work

This allows us to identify the risks involved and determine the equipment, manpower, and process needed for safe removal. We inform you of all the details so you know what to expect throughout the job.

Preparing the Work Area

Before starting the hazardous tree removal, we prep the site to avoid any unintended damage. This involves:

  • Installing safety barricades if needed
  • Removing any brush or debris around base of tree
  • Ensuring there is a clear path to bring equipment in and out
  • Padding and protecting structures like fences or AC units if necessary
  • Planning exact direction for the tree to fall

Proper planning prevents expensive accidents, so we take every precaution possible. Homeowner safety is our top priority during all phases of the job.

Tree Removal Process

When dealing with a large, dead, or dangerous tree, the techniques we use will vary based on the specific situation. Here are some of the methods we may use:

  • Roping and Rigging: For trees near buildings or that have limited space, we use rigging techniques to dismantle the tree in small, controlled sections using ropes and pulleys. This allows us to drop pieces exactly where we want away from any risks.
  • Cabling and Bracing: Install temporary cables or braces to provide additional support to weak sections of the tree before removal. This minimizes the chance of uncontrolled collapse and property damage.
  • Section Removal: Removing the tree in pieces from the top down starting with the most hazardous overhanging limbs before addressing the trunk.
  • Using a Crane: For tall trees or sites with restricted access, we may use a crane with a bucket to remove pieces safely from above.
  • Chipper: A wood chipper quickly chips the tree debris into mulch for easy clean up.

No matter which techniques are used, you can expect a smooth process with no surprises. We only perform the work once you give approval of our planned tree removal process. Safety is ensured at every step.

Clean Up and Scrap Removal

After the hazardous tree is successfully taken down, we complete the job by:

  • Cutting the trunk and branches into manageable sections
  • Running all debris through the wood chipper on site
  • Raking and gathering all leftover sawdust and chips
  • Hauling it all away in our trucks
  • Leaving your property clean and free of any tree debris

We know dealing with a large fallen tree is stressful enough. By handling the full clean up, we ensure you are not left with a big mess to manage after.

Stump Removal

Finally, we can remove the remaining tree stump by grinding it down well below ground level. This finishes the job and leaves a clean landscape. Depending on your needs, we can also just grind the visible stump or leave it in place unground.

Our goal through every step is limiting damage, cleaning up properly, and leaving your property looking beautiful after a difficult tree removal.

Cost of Commercial Fencing in Dangerous or Difficult Tree Removal

Pricing for hazardous or dangerous tree removal depends on several factors:

  • Tree height and trunk diameter
  • Tree condition and structure
  • Location and potential risks involved
  • Equipment needed and crew size
  • Amount of clean up required

To give you an estimate, we come assess the tree and site, then explain what is required so you know the full scope and cost. Pricing is typically in the range of:

  • $600 – $1,200 for removing medium trees up to 60 ft tall
  • $1,500 – $3,000 for large trees from 60 ft to 100 ft tall
  • $3,000 – $6,000 for extra large trees over 100 ft tall

Keep in mind that uniformly healthy trees in open areas tend to be on the lower end. Problematic trees next to structures or power lines cost more to remove safely.

The investment is well worth eliminating danger and preventing exponentially greater costs from property damage if the hazardous tree fails.
