I found the process of hiring these guys quite easy. They answered my phone call even though I called after hours, and scheduled my estimate for the next day. George was very nice and quoted me for trimming a Bradford Pear tree and removing some bushes that weren't too healthy. The price was reasonable and the work was completed without incident.

Damaged Trees - How Emergency Tree Cutting Comes in Handy

Trees are of so much value to your home. Not only do they make your space beautiful with a natural touch, they also keep your air fresh and clean. These benefits require that the trees are kept in good condition. One of the ways to do this is to guard against tree damage, but this is sometimes unavoidable. Tree damage comes in various forms and it is caused by different factors. The following post gives a comprehensive list of the causes of tree damage so you can ensure your trees are in good condition by guarding against them: 

Natural Causes of Damage 

Old mature trees are more likely to fail than young vigorous trees. Size can also be a factor; large trees or branches are more dangerous when they fail. Mature trees in decline are more likely to become damaged due to their size and condition. Unusual Shape While uniquely-shaped trees may be visually interesting, shape may also indicate whether a tree is weak or structurally unbalanced. Storms, improper pruning, topping, and other damage can all weaken a tree’s architecture and cause unusual growth patterns. Trees with multiple trunks or several branches attached to the same point on the trunk are at higher risk for splits or cracks. Tight V-shaped forks are more prone to break than open U-shaped unions. Inspect branches where they attach to the trunk. 

Sign That You Need Tree Removal 
If one of the trees on your property looks anything other than healthy or sound, you may need emergency tree removal in Stafford. Tree removal services can evaluate the state of your tree, remove damaged branches, or remove the tree altogether. To help keep you, your family, and your home safe, watch for signs that indicate you need tree removal.

Trees That May Fall

If you find that the trunk of one of your trees is hollow, the tree is a potential danger. Hollow trees can stay alive for years, but their strength is severely compromised, and they are vulnerable to falling. The signs described in the post above will help you avoid a potentially dangerous situation. On the other hand, in the event that something drastic happens before you can do something about it, you need to know what to anticipate and how to handle a fallen tree legally.

Who is Responsible for a Fallen Tree?

Trees beautify a property’s landscape, provide shade, and they are good for the environment. However, they also present risks to the property owner and the neighbors. They can deteriorate or even die, and that can lead to problems. Dead trees burn more easily than do live ones. They can also fall over, especially during severe weather. This is enough of a problem when the tree lands on the owner’s property. When it lands on a neighbor’s property, things get complicated. Worse, it can land on the neighbor’s property and damage something. Then relations between the neighbors can get very tense. As indicated in the post above, you need to do your due diligence if you are going to avoid any chaos and strained relationships caused by a fallen tree. This calls for a pro-active approach to tree care.
