The Internet is an amazing place full of informative articles, videos and tutorials. As a result, more and more people are choosing to ‘learn’ online and then undertake certain home and garden tasks themselves.
While this is great and provides many people with newfound freedom, there are some jobs that should always be handled by professionals. One such task is tree lopping and removal.
Lopping and removing trees is dangerous work which carries many risks, not only to the individuals undertaking the work, but also to structures, animals and people nearby. That’s why it’s always advisable to call in the professionals when you’ve got a tree that simply has to go.
In general, home insurance policies will not cover any damage caused to your property as a result of a tree being lopped and removed. Therefore, it’s best to minimise the chances of that happening by enlisting the services of a professional company.
Professional tree surgeons and arborists have all the equipment needed to remove your tree(s) safely and efficiently. Even if you did manage to get your tree out of the ground successfully, chances are you’ll struggle to get it into manageable pieces which can be removed.
The cherry pickers and wood chipping machines used by the pros are designed to make tree removal as quick and easy as possible.
Obviously, before you instruct anyone to remove a tree – even if it’s on your property – you should check whether there are any legal ramifications. Your local council should be able to help or at least point you in the right direction if not. You can get slapped with huge fines for removing trees incorrectly, so always best to check beforehand.
