We love our trees. They bring value to our home, help reduce energy costs, and help filter the air we breathe. But sometimes a tree has to be removed, either from disease, pests like emerald ash borer, or damage that creates risk we aren’t willing to tolerate. If this occurs, you may wonder, “what is the best time of year to remove a tree?”
As with most tree care, the “best time” depends upon your needs.
Remove A Tree If It Needs To Be Removed
Like pruning, there really is no “best time” of year to remove a tree. Once a tree creates more risk than what you are comfortable with, it’s time. Especially if the tree dead or suffers from EAB and you have made the choice to remove the tree. An ISA Certified Arborist can provide you with information that helps you make an informed decision.
Always get a professional to remove your trees and remove the stump. Attempting to remove your tree and the stump can be dangerous work. Property damage, personal injuries and even fatalities are too often the result of tackling a job meant for trained professionals.
Are You Concerned About Cost?
If you are wondering about the cost of removing a tree from your property, there are several factors that impact the estimated fees. For example, how many trees need to be removed and how large is the tree? How accessible is the tree for large equipment or crews? Are there nearby obstructions such as overhead wires, buildings or roadways?
You may have heard that tree care services can be cheaper in the winter and while Hansen’s does offer winter tree services, do not let this be a factor in when you choose to remove your tree!
If the tree is in danger of falling and injuring someone or damaging property get it removed as soon as possible. If you don’t, you could be held responsible and insurance may not pay out, as you neglected your duty of care.
