When you have a tree that is dying or posing a danger to your property, you may need to remove it. Over time, a tree’s roots can spread out and damage your foundation, sidewalk, or driveway.

Additionally, a tree not properly cared for can become a hazard to your home during a storm. If you are considering removing a tree, there are a few things you need to know first.

  1. Check if your tree is protected.
    There may be reasons why a tree may be protected, such as its age, size, or species. If your tree is on your city’s list of protected trees, you will need to get a permit before removing it.
  2. Get an estimate.
    Be sure to get an estimate. The estimated cost of tree removal varies depending on the size and type of tree, as well as the complexity of the job.
  3. Prepare for the work.
    Once you have hired a tree removal company, they will clear any debris from around the tree, such as leaves or branches. While land clearing, they will also put a tarp down to protect your property.
  4. Be prepared for the noise.
    The tree removal process can be quite noisy, so be sure to warn your neighbors in advance. Tree trimming and tree pruning, for example, can be done with a chainsaw which can be loud.
  5. Remove the tree.
    You may take it to a landfill yourself or have it composted. The tree debris clean-up, however, is taken care of by the professionals. They will cut the tree into pieces and haul it away. Or you can then use the wood for firewood or other projects.
