Is it Better to Have My Tree Professionally Trimmed or Removed?

Tree Trimming Vs Tree Removals

Tree Trimming Vs Tree Removals “Should I have my tree trimmed or removed?” is a question we often hear at Big Foot Tree Service. The average homeowner isn’t quite sure whether to have a tree trimmed, with hopes of it healing and “coming back,” versus having it removed all-together since it’s “for sure dead.” That’s why they call us at Big Foot Tree Service, as we can assess the overall health and well-being of trees. Our tree experts can tell you whether or not a tree can be “saved.”

When Trimming Feels Like the Best Option

If a tree isn’t dying or dead, then typically it should just be trimmed. By taking away dying or dead branches, it’s most likely that the tree will re-shape itself to its natural form with new growth. Trimming is also done when branches are getting in the way of nearby property structures– after all, you don’t want a branch breaking your window or scraping your siding. When a tree is dormant it’s a good time to trim it– this is usually in late autumn or during the winter. Ultimately, tree trimming helps a tree grow stronger and healthier.

When Tree Removal Feels Like the Best Option

If a tree is dying or dead then it should be removed. While there are several reasons for this, the number one reason is that a dead tree is unsightly– it ruins an otherwise attractive landscape. Also, dead trees can encroach on property structures and they can be a hazard, especially during or after storms. Tree removal costs vary– typically, the size of the tree, where it’s located, and what kind of species it is all factor into the cost of removal. For example, a very large, dead tree next to a house is going to cost more to remove than a small one in an open field.
