One of the biggest problems that many of our homeowner clients face is knowing when they need emergency tree removal.
Certainly, our standard tree removal services are appropriate for many situations, but there are times when a tree needs to be removed and the service cannot wait.
Here are a few common situations where you probably need emergency services to remove your trees.
Fallen Trees Present a Dangerous Environment
If trees on your property have fallen and have landed on power lines, a vehicle, or a house, you’ve got a dangerous condition.
The first advice we would give you in this emergency situation is to make sure that everyone is safe and accounted for. Your personal wellbeing is your priority.
If the fallen trees pose a danger to other people, you should call 911 and get the authorities involved.
Once you’ve checked to make sure everyone is ok, it’s time to call us. We will dispatch a certified arborist along with our tree removal crew to handle the situation.
If it is safe for you to do so, before we arrive, you should consider taking pictures to use when you file a claim with your insurance company.
Trees Have Been Damaged in a Storm
Long Island storms can be quite unpredictable. High winds, ice buildup, and heavy snow are some of the biggest contributors to damaged trees.
Damaged trees, especially those with weakened root systems can topple and cause extensive damage to nearby structures and vehicles.
When a storm has left you with damaged or fallen trees, you just might need emergency tree services.
Trees Are Diseased or Have Shallow Root Systems and Pose a Risk
As much as we love to keep trees healthy, we understand that sometimes trees are diseased beyond a point where they can be brought back.
When a tree becomes diseased or if the root systems in the trees never “took” to the ground, there’s a problem. That tree could fall on its own or as the result of a strong wind.
If you feel like you have a tree that could fall at any moment, emergency tree removal might be what you need.
