How To Know When It's Time To Remove a Tree

There are many reasons to cut down a tree but it's not always an easy decision to make. Here are some of the most common problems that lead property owners to have a tree cut down.

  • question

    A diseased, damaged or disfigured tree

  • question

    The tree is too large for the space, damaging your house or other structures, blocking a drive or walkway, or crowding other trees

  • question

    A construction project will take place nearby and the tree is in the way or will likely be damaged beyond repair

  • question

    There's too much shade beneath the tree, causing mold and moss to grow on siding or walkways, making the interior of the home too dark, and not allowing anything to grow in its shadow

  • question

    The tree is a potential fire hazard and must be removed to create a defensible space, comply with insurance mandates, or ease your mind

Whatever the reason, just call us at 303-674-8733 for a free estimate.


How We Remove Trees

Trees are removed in different ways, depending on the circumstances.

If there's enough space, sometimes we can simply fell the tree and then cut it up once it's on the ground. It'll probably leave a large dent in the ground but this is the cheapest and easiest option.

However, trees usually need to be cut down in pieces, especially if they're rotting or dangerous, or if they're close to structures, septic tanks or overhead wires. Sometimes the pieces are lowered to the ground by ropes, while in other situations they're lifted out of the way by a large overhead crane.


What To Consider When Removing a Tree

WHO WILL YOU HIRE? If a tree must be removed, be sure you hire a professional tree service that has the proper experience and equipment to handle tree removals. Tree removal is a dangerous job and requires specialized skills that take years of training to master. This is definitely not a job where you want to cut corners!

ARE THEY INSURED? Plus, be sure that the tree service you use is fully insured for this type of work (not just for general landscape work - that doesn't cover large tree removals).

HOW WILL IT BE DONE? When our certified arborist comes to look at your tree(s) to give you a free estimate, he'll let you know which removal method is best and how the job will be done. That may involve heavy equipment that will need access to your property.

WILL THERE BE DAMAGE? While we carefully try to minimize any damage to your landscape (such as by slowly lowering branches and placing boards under our equipment to avoid creating ruts), some damage to your lawn may occur. Scheduling tree removal for winter (when the ground is frozen) is a good way to avoid that.


After the Tree Has Been Removed

Once the tree has been cut down, we can cut up the wood for firewood and leave it for you or we can haul it off. Branches can be chipped into mulch and left for your use or can be hauled off as well.

One thing to consider is just how much firewood or wood chips you'll be left with. Once it's on the ground, a tree usually turns out to be a lot bigger than you thought! And that could mean a huge pile of firewood or chips will be left for you to deal with.

There's also the question of what to do with the remaining tree stump. While we remove the tree, we don't take out the tree stump as part of the tree removal process. Some customers prefer to leave the stump while others want it completely gone. If that's you, ask us about stump grinding to eliminate tree stumps.

Every once in a while you come across a company that does it right and that was my experience with LAM Tree Service. The LAM crew was onsite for some major tree removal and we were impressed with the quality of their work, the professionalism of the crew, the clean up, and most of all their technical ability to safely remove some BIG trees. The proximity and size of the trees to our house required expert care and they delivered. Money well spent.
