In certain circumstances it may be necessary to hire additional equipment in order to complete a tree removal safely. For example a tree may be dangerously close to a road or power lines.

We may need to hire in a mobile crane or cherry picker (aerial platform). This will obviously affect the price.

A Guide to Potential Tree Problems

  • Look for dead wood, branches with brown leaves or no leaves at all
  • Look for cracks and lifting of soil around the base of the tree trunk - a sign of uprooting
  • Over hanging branches on public highways may will need surgery
  • Fungi or mushrooms growing around the base may be a sign of serious decay
  • Regions of the the tree trunk with no bark can indicate dead wood or fungi attack
  • Major tree branches that are rubbing against each other will need treatment
  • A V-shaped split between multiple trunks on the same tree indicates weakness
