5 Things to Know When Getting Large Trees Removed

If a tree on your property poses a threat to your property or is dying or already dead, removing it could be the right solution. Removing a large tree requires specialized training and equipment, and bears a high level of risk. Here at Hagan & Sons, we have over 30 years of experience maintaining and removing trees throughout Maryland. Here are 5 things you should know when getting large trees removed.

1. Signs a Tree Needs to Be Removed

The first step in the tree removal process is determining whether or not it needs to be removed. If your large tree is showing signs of infection, is hollow, has large dead branches, or is suddenly leaning, we recommend you contact a tree removal specialist. When it comes to tree removal, it is better to be safe than sorry. A large tree can do serious damage to your property.

2. Different Species Require Different Removal Methods

There are approximately 120 species of trees in Maryland! Every tree and every situation is unique. Our employees are trained on each species and the techniques needed for the tree. Before we put on our hard hats, we analyze the situation to determine the safest way to remove the tree. There is no situation where we can say that the tactics that work for one tree will work for another. 

3. Hidden Problems are More Common Than You Think

You may think removing a tree is a straightforward process. You just need to use a chainsaw and start cutting, right? It is not so easy. Before you begin removing a large tree, hidden problems such as diseased or bug-infested limbs, decayed wood, and natural weaknesses caused by wind or water don’t always make themselves known. That is why it is best to contact a professional to deal with your large tree removal.

4. Special Equipment is Needed

When removing large trees, you deal with equipment including chainsaws, cranes, and woodchippers. Tree removal techniques aren’t easy, and it is not a DIY job. Our team undergoes an extensive training process. You should never take a tree down by yourself. The best way to remove a tree safely is to hire a professional to do the job for you!

5. Tree Removal is Dangerous

Felling trees and managing their removal is a big job, and without the proper experience, people and property can be seriously damaged. It is important you hire a licensed and insured company to take care of your large tree removal. We carry ample insurance to ensure that anything that happens is handled appropriately. When you work with Hagan & Sons, you can trust our work from start to finish.
