FAQs About Removing Trees

Unfortunately, sometimes the best of intentions cannot save a tree. Trees may become damaged, infested with insects, or diseased beyond repair. In this situation, you want to remove the tree with the greatest of care. Sustainable Tree Care is equipped to take out trees of any size in any location. Here are some frequently asked questions about removing trees.
How do I know when a tree should be removed?
It is sometimes difficult for the untrained eye to determine when a tree must be removed. If a tree is leaning close to a structure, is extremely damaged from storms, insects, or disease, it may be time to remove it. Your best bet is to call a professional tree company to inventory the health and location of the tree. Be careful who you call though. Some companies will recommend removing the tree just to gain the business! Professional arborists are the best choice for evaluating your particular situation. Sustainable Tree Care will never recommend removing a tree that can be saved unless you know you want it gone.
What can I expect from tree removal services?
We can’t speak to other’s techniques, but Sustainable Tree Care will use International Society of Arboriculture approved techniques to completely remove unwanted trees. Sustainable Tree Care will assess the situation and use the best techniques for removing that tree. We may use felling, trimming from the top down, or heavy equipment to prevent property damage from falling debris. Whatever the situation, you can count on us to be safe, fast, and effective. We can cut and leave the wood for firewood, or remove it completely. We will grind stumps flush with the ground and remove any debris.
What if the tree is close to the house or other structure?
Sustainable Tree Care has a variety of equipment to safely remove any tree. Our workers are trained to safely remove any tree no matter how tight the quarters! We are fully insured against property damage or personal injury so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Do I need a permit to remove a tree?
Usually yes. The specific regulations vary from county to county, however, most people will need a permit to remove trees from their property. We can help you determine if you need a permit, how to get it, and alternative plans if your request is not approved.
Can you help replace a tree that has been removed?
Absolutely! We can help you choose, plan for, and properly plant a new tree. Our certified arborists will help you choose the perfect tree, the perfect location, getting your tree established, and maintaining it for years to come.
