Tree Removal – Here’s Why You Should Call the Professionals

Unhealthy or damaged trees can become a hazard to your home or business. If the risks are too great or the tree is too far gone, tree removal may be necessary to solve the problem.

It might be tempting to try and save money by removing a tree yourself, but unless you happen to be a professional arborist this is never a good idea.

Don’t Put Your Wallet above Your Health

When you try to undertake a tree removal yourself, you are putting yourself and others at serious risk. Professional arborists have years of experience and training. They know how to cut branches in the right way to avoid injury to themselves or others.

However competent you feel, without proper training, you will be at risk of injury or death by attempting to carry out this job yourself. By utilising professional tree removal services, you can put yourself and others out of harm’s way.

False Economy

It may seem more cost effective for you to acquire the tools and do the job yourself, but doing so may end up costing you a lot more in the long run.

Firstly, you have to know which tools are appropriate for your situation. If the debris falls somewhere where you didn’t intend it to fall, that can also cost you thousands of dollars in repair costs. And lastly, if debris falls on your neighbour’s property, you may get sued for personal injury or property damage.

By using professional arborists you will be charged a flat fee for the service and, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you will not be held financially liable. Professional tree removal services carry insurance to protect you from responsibility in the case of property damage or injury.

Don’t Waste Time

Removing a tree is a time-consuming task. There are a variety of things that need to be taken into consideration such as the risk of removing the tree pertaining and the time it takes to cut up and remove the debris.

Doing this on your own can take a very long time, especially if you have to clean up all the debris properly on your own. You can’t simply leave a whole tree for the garbage collectors, nor can you just dump the waste anywhere without risking hefty fines. By using a professional Newcastle arborist you’ll ensure the job is done safely and that the green waste is professionally disposed of.

Obeying the Law

Another reason to use professional tree services is that you probably have to. Many councils require that tree removal and tree pruning be carried out by qualified arborists – for the reasons outlined above, as well as environmental concerns.

To comply with local laws you likely need to hire professionals. If you need a tree removal in Cessnock or Newcastle ask us about our tree removal service and emergency services.
