Is it time to call a tree service in Lake Jackson 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.
Actual Estimates on Tree and Stump Removal Cost
People take out trees for a number of reasons - as a landscaping requirement, if they are precariously reaching the electric lines or if they are dead. Whatever the reason may be, calling the experts to do the job is the best way to go about this task.
Though you can easily chop down the tree with a chainsaw, you may lack the knowledge on how to do it properly. Cutting down a tree and removing the stump require the experience of stump removal professionals. If you're not convinced, then let's break down the advantages and disadvantages of doing the task yourself versus hiring the experts.

Removing Unwanted Trees and Branches
In December trimming the tree means the Christmas tree, complete with ornaments and tinsel, but it can also mean something else--the trimming of your outdoor trees. Yes, in the late fall or early winter is the best time to trim those branches and that is because this is the time of year where the tree is dormant and cutting the branches will result in less sap loss and also lower the risk of fungus and/or insect infestation for the tree itself.
Most trees require regular pruning or trimming. In the forest setting, trees that are left alone will shed branches naturally due to shading, but in a backyard, its the humans who have to do the work. There are many reasons for trimming a tree's branches. It may be because there is dead wood that needs to be removed, it could be that there is storm damage or disease that has damaged part of the tree. It may also be imperative to trim branches to allow for the tree to clear power lines, keep vandals out of the tree (the higher the lowest branches are the less likely people are to try and climb the tree) and it could be that the tree hangs over the road and so for trucks to get past, the tree needs to be trimmed.
We all want our trees to remain strong and healthy, and trimming them while they're young goes a long way in getting them to maturity with less need for trimming or pruning. Doing a little work at first will greatly reduce the work load for years to come, so get out there and trim that tree!
How to Quickly and Easily Remove Large Tree Stumps From Your Landscape
A huge amount of technical bearing data and procedure is offered by most bearing manufacturers. If you are like me, you simply do not have the time, patience, or interest, in wading through all of this information, with cost effectiveness being unsupported by the frequent need to outsource bearing maintenance, but yet do have an interest in running cost reduction for your tree stump grinder. Replacement bearings cost over £100 each, and represent a large portion of overall machine maintenance costs. This guide is meant for those who wish to reduce cost by increasing bearing service life. Bearing failure or premature bearing wear on stump grinders is mainly due to inadequate maintenance of clean lubricant. I use a pneumatic grease dispenser driven by an air compressor at each days end of stump grinding, with a grease top up, out in the field, using a conventional hand-held grease pump. I use a great deal of grease but it is far cheaper than replacement bearings. When I re-grease bearings, I thoroughly purge out the contaminated grease, until clean grease exudes from the bearing. A high melting point EP-2 grease is essential. I prefer a molybdenum disulphide (moly) enriched EP-2 complex grease because it is a heavy-duty grease. So, to sum up this paragraph, there are three principles of maximizing bearing life insofar as lubricants are concerned:
- select the correct grease
- apply the correct grease properly e.g in the correct quantity
- re-grease frequently
It is unfortunate for all stump grinder operators, that by the time a bearing knocks, rumbles, or noticeably heats up, it is shortly on its way to failure. There is no practical way for the average owner / operator to accurately judge the length of serviceable time remaining in a stump grinders bearing while out in the field.
From this viewpoint, I am making an attempt to try to collect some useable data out in the field, which may prove to be a practical and inexpensive way to monitor bearing serviceability. I will be installing thermocouples (heat sensors) to the bearings. If a running average temperature gradient can be established, it may prove helpful to those stump grinders who are concerned with maximizing their machines bearing life, by simply adjusting up their bearings, when its temperature rise indicates time to do so. This will require some effort on the part of those interested. They too will need to fit thermocouples to their bearings to monitor temperature as the only cost-effective, and practical way to know when to adjust up their bearings.
This effort will be totally negated if a strict and sufficient re-greasing program is not maintained. What would be the point of regular, timely, bearing adjustments, if the bearings regularly ran in a bed of contaminated grease. I think the reader will agree, is a total waste of time and effort.
