Our professional Cleveland arborists work to maintain the health, beauty, and longevity of trees. Unfortunately, while many trees live for generations, they are still susceptible to disease, insect infestation, or structural failure that can cut their lives short. Here are a few common reasons Northeast Ohio homeowners may need to hire an arborist to cut down a tree:
- To mitigate potential safety hazards posed by dead, dying, or damaged tree limbs or entire trees
- To thin out over-crowded wooded areas, thus providing more light and space for remaining trees to thrive
- To clear land in advance of new landscaping, construction, or utility rights-of-way
Because trees have such significant financial, aesthetic, and even sentimental value for homeowners in Cuyahoga County, the decision to remove an entire tree should only be made in consultation with a professional arborist. Someone who has been certified by the International Society of Arboriculture will be able to suggest risk-mitigating alternates to tree removal, such as pruning, trimming, bracing, or cabling. And if removal is necessary, an arborist will be able to recommend the safest method for doing so.
As with many tree care and maintenance services, it is not advisable to attempt large-scale tree or limb removals on your own. Tree removal is the most dangerous landscaping job, requiring specialized knowledge, years of experience, and access to heavy equipment; not only could you hurt yourself, but you could cause lasting damage to your home, property, or other trees. Tree removal jobs also frequently require coming in close contact with power lines and other sensitive areas. Because of this, your best bet is to hire a professional arborist for any major tree or limb removal.
