“Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;
But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me”
- Robert Frost
The whole world is a melting pot of culture, color and creed. We live harmoniously rallying our beliefs and raising our perceptions. Some say a tree’s worth extends to the lives of our sons and daughters, and to their sons and daughters and so on; it provides shade on a hot day, it supports wildlife and aids in the cleanliness of the air. Yet in this day and age, where urban jungles are getting bigger and bigger, cities are looking at strategical methods of how these trees would grow and remain; taking into consideration the trees’ placement in the vast cultural practices and the response of the environment.
THE ARBORIST AND THE TREE
Come in the Arborist or Arboriculturist as less popularly known-- they are professionals whose expertise are managing, maintaining and manipulating trees. Basically, they are the tree experts and tree surgeons who carefully plans what kind of tree goes where, which kind grows best on a specific yard and which doesn’t. Arborist play a big role with large tree removal service providers for their counsels as their advices.
The practice of cutting down a tree manually with axes or electrically with chainsaws is the whole concept of tree removal. The United States have different regulations per state for tree removal which varies from private owners needing permits to take down trees, to having no regulation at all. Utah, for one, protects rare trees to the extent that roads and highways pave way for these type of trees. Japan, with its vast urban hives, limit its tree species to those only native in country.
TREE REMOVAL KNOW-HOW
Keep in mind though, tree services are a wide spectrum. Tree removal is different from tree cutting. Tree cutting involves baring the trees from its limbs and branches completely first before being able to take it down. Trimming on the other hand is the manipulation of the tree's aesthetics in favor of its environment or upon a customer's request. Stump grinding, which is removing the root, is another type of service. Basically, familiarization with tree services is essential before acquiring any service. Once you've found that tree removal is the service suited for you, remember to apply the three P's:
Be familiar with the service and the provider you are acquiring. Do they provide a copy of their insurance? What is the service level agreement? How long will the removal take? What precautions are needed to be made before the actual tree removal especially on the equipment or if the service is to be done in a yard? Be specific. Knowledge of these things would enable one to make right choices based on the options, if need be.
And similar to getting any type of service, you expect the best to be provided. Know your local tree removal service providers. Ask questions. Read about their reviews and credentials, find out whose work is reputable enough that it is worth mentioning.
Getting your money's worth is a major factor to consider upon acquiring tree removal service. Beyond the size of the tree, the add on cost for extra services like logging, or the travel expense for services to be given in remote areas, quality of work must be second to none. Cheap might not always mean good, ensure that your provider is a professional. Anyone can buy an equipment for tree removal but quality and safety must never be compromised.
IS IT FOR YOU?
Whatever service would best fit your requirement, seek counsel with arborist or professionals. Most tree service providers are considerate enough to give free consultations. If not, pay for this service. In any case, always be informed.
