Is it time to call a tree service in Sugar Land 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.
Identifying the Best Tree Removal Services
There are many reasons that removing trees from your property should be considered. The biggest reasons, of course, surround the need to change the look of your yard and might involve the moving instead of the removal of that giant. The need to get rid of a diseased or dying one is also important for safety reasons. Tree removal professionals should be contacted for most of these operations because of what could go wrong in the process.
The right company to come in and perform this task must be knowledgeable about what they are doing. They will need to have all of the equipment necessary to take these, sometime, 100 foot eco systems down. Thought should be made about whether it is appropriate to do this or to trim them to present a less dangerous profile.
The expertise exists for these trees to be removed if that is what is needed. They are usually certified as arborists who can perform any of the tree trimming that may be needed. This would be something to think about, first, as trees contribute to the oxygen production and provide shade and homes for birds and other critters.
One other thing to think about is the permits, fees and or fines that many communities asses whenever the subject of tree removal comes up. This could present a deterrent to the removal. A tree trimming or tree service company can help you jump through all of those hoops and make for a beautiful resolution.

What It Takes to Perform Tree Service Work
Stumps can break up your lawn, are tripping hazards and can make basic lawn maintenance more challenging. While you could hire a professional service to remove your stumps for you, a stump grinder rental may be a more economical route.
A stump grinder is large gas-powered tool that resembles a tractor mower with a large lever protruding out the front. A steel studded disc is mounted on the end of the lever and is used to chip away at the wood, leaving a large hole in the place of the stump. The lever is generally operated with hydraulics and can be moved up and down and side to side. A basic stump grinder rental is usually about the size of a lawn mower, though some models are as large as a truck.
Choose a stump grinder rental over a professional service if you have more than one or two stumps to remove, or if you plan to share the rental costs with a neighbor.
Why Would You Need Tree Removal Services
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.
