Although removing a tree is not the most preferred solution to tree problems, it can sometimes be the only solution. When a tree reaches its genetic growth potential, it may become unsafe, with branches falling every now and then, and slowly die.
The only ideal way to deal with such a tree is to remove it before it does harm.
Our tree removal services here at Wild Oak Tree Service come second to none. We can guarantee that our team is more than capable of providing safe, efficient tree removal at almost any size or scope. Though we do recommend tree removal as a last solution for Austin residents (mostly due to safety concerns), we have always taken great care to invest the proper gear, tools, and training for any removal job. This guarantees you that we can remove the tree quickly and easily without causing any damage to your home.
There are many reasons why you should always opt for professionals when felling trees on your property:
Though hiring professionals can cost more in the short term than doing it yourself, making this wise decision saves you more over time. Not only do you avoid property damage, injury, or even death, we have the vision to properly remove living or dead trees to improve the overall look and feel of your property in ways that people outside of the industry cannot.
Depending on how big your tree is also, its removal may need special equipment. Most homeowners do not own this equipment and trying to remove the tree without the necessary gear often increases the chances of damages or bodily harm. Our teams always ensure that the right procedures are followed and all the necessary precautions are taken to keep you and your property safe.
In some cases, trees that look as if they need to be removed can be saved through fertilization, trimming, and insecticide spraying. When you hire professional tree removal service providers, you will get to know whether your tree can be saved.
Dying or dead trees can negatively affect your property’s aesthetic appeal. Tree removals can help you restore both the aesthetic and curb appeal of your home for life.
Utilizing professional tree removal services can make your home safer. As the trees grow older, their branches usually become more susceptible to breaking. Heavy rains and strong winds, which are common in Austin, increase the chances of the breakages. Dying or dead trees usually dry out very quickly too. This often makes them a fire hazard. By investing in tree removals for the dead trees, you will be getting rid of these hazards, once and for all. Also, if the tree is growing too close to power lines, and pruning alone is not helping keep it from touching these lines, removing it may be your best option. If allowed to keep growing, the tree will be increasing the risks of electric shocks.
The direction that a tree falls is extremely important. When you hire professionals to remove your tree, they will use their equipment to make sure that the tree falls in the right direction. By ensuring that the tree does not fall on your house, our professionals will help you avoid repair costs worth thousands of dollars.
