Why Tree Removal Is Important

Why Tree Removal Is Important

When we talk to people about the tree services that we provide to the people of Northern Colorado, the one service of ours that people have the most questions about is our tree removal services.

Sure, it can seem unnatural to remove a tree from your property, but there are plenty of reasons that justify tree removal, and many more reasons that tree removal is necessary. In today’s blog, we will be discussing a few of the reasons that tree removal is an important service that we offer.

Landscape Aesthetics

When people think of tree removal, they typically think of the removal of dead or diseased trees. While those are both justifiable reasons for someone to schedule tree removal, sometimes the trees that we remove are completely healthy.

While it might seem silly to remove a healthy tree, sometimes it is necessary. Some trees, particularly acidic evergreens, are known to kill everything that is below them — including your dreams for a nice thick, green lawn. Other trees can block out light, causing your yard to always be dark and dreary. Tree removal can be used to correct the issues being caused by problem trees.


The most common reason that residents in Northern Colorado contact our tree removal specialists is to have a safety hazard removed. If trees are not correctly taken care of, become diseased, or become disturbed by a pest, it is possible that the trees might need to be removed. In most cases, the tree specialist will try to remove the affected parts of the tree to reduce the risk of the tree falling or the spread of pests and disease, but in some cases, there is simply no option but to remove the tree.

In addition to a tree being a safety issue due to rot, pests, or disease, some trees simply grow in high-risk areas and must be removed. For example, if the large oak tree has been growing at an angle towards your home and is not slightly overhanging your home, it is now a fall risk — regardless of how stable it may look. Rather than taking the risk of the tree falling during the next major wind event, we strongly recommend that you contact our Northern Colorado tree removal team.


When To Hire A Tree Removal Specialist

As experienced tree care providers, we strongly suggest that you contact our team for all of your tree removal and tree pruning needs. But that being said, we know that we aren’t the only Northern Coloradoans that know how to safely operate a chainsaw or telescoping pruner saw. However, there are a handful of situations that we believe nobody should attempt trimming or tree removal.

Our certified arborists should always be called if:

  • The branches or affected area are out of reach from the ground
  • The branches of the tree are in close relation to power lines
  • The branches are over 10 inches in diameter
  • The tree needs to be reshaped to move it from existing structures
  • The tree has a risk of falling on or near a structure
  • If you aren’t 100% confident in your ability to complete the task safely
