Is it time to call a tree service in Freeport to remove that old tree? It can be a painful choice to make, but sometimes the tree gets too close to the house, gets too diseased, gets an incurable infestation of some pest, or grows too tall and gets close to a power line. If any of these things occur, its best to do the right thing and get rid of the tree. Although you might have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is almost dishonorable to the tree to allow it to suffer in bad conditions.
Our tree removal service will plan it out, climb up the tree and tie two long ropes near the top. Anchor them on the opposite side of the one that we want it to fall towards. This will allow us to adjust the direction the tree is being lowered in, just in case it starts leaning towards anything it could destroy.

Once the tree is down, stump removal can be slightly more difficult. We have several choices; use a stump chipper that will completely destroy the visible section of the stump. Or we can dig it out. Digging out the stump is much more thorough, but takes time. You can choose to do this yourself or have the family help. If you have kids this shouldn’t be a problem. Kids often find the thought of digging fun, and are excited to go outside and dig all day long with their friends.

Tree Removal Cost - Determining Factors and Estimates
Minneapolis is renowned for its exquisite trees. Trees are not only an integral part of the city, but also an intrinsic way of life. The character and beauty of Minneapolis is defined by its vibrant canopies of leafy, lush green avenues in the summer and the breathtakingly beautiful, fiery splashes of rust in autumn. No wonder then that tree trimming and tree pruning are vital services to most homeowners in the urban area.
The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board is responsible for maintaining, monitoring, re-planting, pruning and removal of the city's trees, however, it is up to the individual property owner to monitor and properly maintain the trees in their own garden.
Urban forests are not only a thing of beauty, but also an important source of health and wellbeing for any environment and its society. Trees may be the "lungs" of the world that purify the air that we breathe, but on a more personal level, can also significantly lower temperatures in summer and therefore save appreciably on air-conditioning costs for the home. Trees also help prevent soil erosion, and have statistically been proven to increase property prices significantly.
Preserving Damaged trees
Tree specialists will not only remove upended trees safely and without further damage to property, but will also be able to give practical advice on how to save or preserve existing trees that are still left standing, even though they may have been damaged in the storm. Partially damaged trees that have been badly injured may pose a future threat and may have to be cut down and removed to prevent placing people and property at risk in months or years to come.
Qualified tree surgeons are not only experienced in saving and preserving what is left of a tree, but also able to conserve the garden as much as possible after a disaster.
Tree Trimming - Do It Yourself
You may not want to wait for stump removal...
There have been some big storms lately throughout New Jersey, most notably Hurricane Sandy. These storms have done significant damage. In the northern part of the state, this has resulted in many broken and downed trees, leaving homeowners to try to figure out what to do with the mess that has been left behind. Should stumps and trees be cleared out right away, or is it okay to leave them behind for a little while?
It may seem like something that can wait for later, but you really may want to work on your yard sooner than later. Leaving dead trees and stumps in your yard can actually cause problems. Here are two issues you may want to think through:
1. Remove Dead Wood for the Sake of Your House
Dead wood in the form of trees, tree stumps, and even stacks of cut wood can become homes for rodents or insects. There may not be a problem right away, but the longer these are left out, the bigger the chance that you may have some uninvited guests move in. This could cause trees to become weaker and fall, or if the wood is too close to the dwelling, could invite termites or carpenter ants right into your house. It's really not worth the risk. If you know you may want to cut your trees down at some point, you might as well do it now.
2. Remove Dead Trees for Safety
Dead trees are not safe. The longer a dead tree sits, the greater the chance it has of falling as roots dry up and the trunk becomes more brittle. Trees that have lost too much off the top will also quickly die. Leaving these trees up for extended periods of time invites a hazard - and can have consequences for persons and property.
How Much Will This Cost?
This can vary greatly depending on the size of the trees and stumps, as well as the number. We can tell you that it's a good idea to get a couple of estimates before taking on a project. Most reputable companies will offer free quotes on project. You will see a great variety in prices, so make sure you get a few quotes. You can find websites, that specialize in things like outsourcing tree stump removal at a discount or use websites like the BBB to find a good fit. Due to the current high demand, there is also a wait for many companies, so you'll have to balance out efficiency and expediency. Ideally, you can get both - and those companies are out there if you look for them.
