It’s unfortunate, but there are moments when tree removal becomes a necessity. If you have a dead tree on your property, it poses a serious danger. Dead trees will eventually collapse. Hopefully they don’t fall on something valuable, like your car, a person or your home. If it is tall enough, it can negatively impact power lines. During an intense windstorm, there is no telling which way the tree will fall. We have seen instances where a tree has crashed through windows and seriously damaged roofs. In Havertown, we’ve seen our fair share of fallen trees in the streets. When you need a tree removed from your property, contact Jake’s Tree Service.
High Powered Tree Removal Equipment
When removing trees, it is important to understand the purpose. Are you removing the tree because it poses a hazard to power lines or neighboring property? Would you like to have it planted in another location? We have invested heavily in intelligent forestry equipment. This heavy duty equipment allows us to remove the tree, it’s roots system and dirt with the touch of a button. Work related hazards are minimized due to this amazing technology. If the tree is healthy and you’d like to have it planted in a more desirable location, we can make it happen.
If the tree that you’d like to have removed is dangerously close to your property, power lines or expensive machinery, we have a remedy. An arborist and crane operator will work together to protect your property. The arborist will attach the crane to the tree, cut it and the crane operator will lift it away from the adjacent property in one fell swoop. On occasion we find that an HVAC system or other machinery was installed too close to a tree stump or healthy tree. In these instances, we erect a barricade between the tree and the machinery so that when the tree or stump is removed, the machinery is undisturbed.
The Hazards Of Dead Trees
As arborists we will do whatever it takes to preserve our planet’s life source. Trees and other vegetation are our primary sources of oxygen. Yet, there are times when trees are detrimental to the environment. Unhealthy trees compete with healthy vegetation for valuable resources. These resources included nutrient rich soil, sunlight and water. Dead trees have a tendency to bring down power lines, crash through windows and destroy roofs. It may not always be apparent that you have a dead or unhealthy tree on your property. If you are unsure, give us a call and we will examine it closely. If it is indeed dead or unhealthy, enlist us to remove it for you before it causes more harm than good.
Know When It’s Time To Call In A Professional
We love it when customers take the time to educate themselves about their surrounding flora. An educated customer is a great customer. You are well informed and when you make a request, it is guaranteed to be well thought out. There are moments when tree removal is beyond your purview. If a tree is larger than ten inches in diameter, we highly recommend that you call a professional. Never-ever-ever get on a ladder with a chain saw. To do so is asking for trouble. If the limb is too high for you to reach while standing on your own two feet, contact Jake’s Tree Service to do your dirty work.
