And we often get many questions about our services with Tree Service. So here we will do our best to answer all of them!

What should I look for in a tree company?

You should keep a few things in mind while shopping for a tree care business. While it is evident that you must analyze the price the firm charges for its services and compare it to other comparable companies, it is also prudent to investigate some other information.

a. Insurance and licensing: The tree service firm should have the necessary licenses to do the job. Furthermore, they must be insured in case they do harm to your property.

b. Trained staff: You don’t want your prized trees in the hands of inexperienced people. Examine the workers’ qualifications.

c. Evaluations and suggestions: Check with your relatives and friends to discover if anybody recommends the service. Alternatively, seek for internet reviews to ensure that they will perform a decent job.

Why do I need an Arborist to trim my trees?

Trees, like all living things, are susceptible to deterioration, illnesses, and death, and they need care to remain healthy. An arborist knows the requirements of trees. They understand when and which parts of the tree should be cut or pruned to encourage growth and health. Furthermore, they are adept in performing any tree care service without endangering the tree, the people in the surrounding area, or the property.

Will My Property Be Safe If I Have A Tree Removed?

There are risks associated with tree removal. It has the potential to do harm to your property as well, so proceed with care. It is advisable to delegate this duty to experts. It may entail certain concerns if done incorrectly.

a. Tree removal might have an impact on your property’s foundation.

b. Tree removal may harm power lines, affecting the whole neighborhood’s electrical supply. The danger of being electrocuted is also present.

c. When removing the tree, begin at the top by cutting the branches, and then work your way down to the trunk. Climbing the tree is dangerous, and even a little error might result in serious damage.

d. It is impossible to predict which side of the trunk will collapse when cutting it. It may do significant damage to your property if it falls on it.

Hiring tree removal experts would make your life easier. They are prepared for any situation and can securely remove a tree from your property. Furthermore, they have the necessary tools to finish the operation while keeping your property secure.

What’s the average cost to take down a tree?

The price of tree removal is determined on the size of the tree. A 25-foot tree might cost between $100 and $500 to cut down. A larger tree, between 25 and 75 feet tall, would cost between $200 and $1,000 to remove. A 75-foot-tall or taller tree would cost about $1500 to remove.

How do I get rid of old sod?

If your grass begins to turn yellow or you see weeds growing throughout your garden, it’s time to replace the sod. You may simply trim the top grass using a sod cutter. If not, you can always rent it. After you’ve shaved the grass, you may remove the sod using shovels or garden rakes. You’ll be able to roll the pieces for disposal if you cut the roots equally. Hire a professional tree service to remove the sod and replace it with fresh.

When should shrubs be trimmed?

It is determined by whether you have blooming or non-flowering plants. If you have flowering shrubs, you must trim and prune them right after the blooming season. That will give the shrub ample time to prepare for the following bloom. Otherwise, late winter or early spring—March or early April—is the optimum time to trim overgrown bushes. It is advisable to avoid cutting in late summer—August or early September. This will not prepare the shrub for winter and may cause harm.

How do you keep a tree healthy?

Licensed tree removal professionals from a firm like Landscaping Vancouver use sophisticated equipment to cut the tree into parts from the top to the bottom. This is less dramatic than a single massive cut at the base of the tree, but it is considerably safer. You never know where that tree is going to fall!

We utilize a crane to remove huge trees at Landscaping Vancouver. This enables us to raise the tree without allowing it to collapse to the ground, reducing the chance of harm to your house and property. To execute our duties, we also employ chippers, a logging truck, and an aerial lift truck, and we adhere to the most recent industry regulations to assure your and our safety.

Is it ok to remove trees close to the house?

A large tree near your home may give crucial shade and shelter, as well as stunning beauty and drama. However, that neighboring tree might sometimes represent a major hazard. Growing branches might damage and smash up the house’s exterior or roof. Rot may be exacerbated by a pile of leaves and sticks on the roof. A huge tree’s roots may wreak havoc on your home’s foundation, creating cracking and other problems.

A tree near the home may need more careful planning and labor to remove, but a qualified tree removal company can do it safely.

Why should I prune my trees?

Pruning trees is necessary for a variety of reasons, including safety, aesthetics, and tree health. Broken or dead limbs may be hazardous if they fall – frequently unexpectedly, even on a quiet day! If the branches of a tree get too large for the tree or go too near to your roof or chimney, they must be clipped and cleaned to avoid harming your property. Pruning may improve the appearance of a tree or give you with a better view of your land or the horizon. If you want to prune a tree, be sure you use a Certified Arborist. Unskilled and unskilled personnel have the potential to harm your trees and property.

What is a Certified Arborist?

A Certified Arborist is well-versed in tree and woody plant maintenance, pesticides, planting safety, and other technical issues. A demanding and extensive test offered by the British Columbia Administration is required to become a Certified Arborist in British Columbia. In Canada and internationally, the International Society of Arboriculture gives an equally challenging test. As part of our dedication to industry knowledge and standards, Landscaping Vancouver employs a large number of Certified Arborists. When looking for professional services, make it a point to choose tree and plant health care firms that have these credentials.
