What To Do When You Need Tree Removal

Whether it’s from weather, disease, or construction work, sometimes you need tree removal. If this is the case, then you may be wondering how to go about it. At Middleton Tree Services we understand how important it is to remove trees safely and professionally.

Read on for our guide on what to do when you need tree removal to get started.

Assess The Situation

Before you do anything, assess the situation. Sometimes tree removal can be dangerous, especially if it’s weather-related. Take a look at the tree and decide if it needs emergency attention. If limbs look like they could fall at any minute, or if it seems like it may go over at any time, then it’s important to act fast. First of all, get yourself and any residents of the property out of harm’s way, along with any valuable assets, such as vehicles. From here, get in touch with a professional as quickly as possible.

Check For Tree Preservation Orders

Tree preservation orders are put in place to protect valuable species and maintain the natural balance of nature in and around urban or conservation areas. It’s essential that you check for these on your land before commencing any tree removal work. Not only does this preserve beautiful and/or rare specimens, it also helps you avoid severe fines.

If the work is urgent, then you can apply to work on a protected tree through the UK GOV website.

Contact A Professional Tree Surgeon

Once you’ve assessed the situation and checked for preservation orders, it’s time to talk to a professional. They’ll be able to analyse the tree and work on the best course of action for its removal. Be sure to find a reliable tree surgeon in your local area with all the required qualifications and experience to ensure it all goes smoothly.

Safe Practice

At the end of the day, safety is a priority when it comes to large, damaged trees that need removing.

If you think that a tree has the potential to damage your property, or the people living there, then it’s your responsibility to conduct safe practice. This means that even if it’s inconvenient, leaving the property if there’s a risk of the tree falling. This is especially important if the tree is large and diseased. It doesn’t take much to push a diseased or damaged tree over, and you don’t want to be there if it does.
