Sometimes, a tree’s problems become so widespread that it can no longer be salvaged but removing a tree is a serious undertaking. With over 50 years of experience in the St. Louis region, the Jackson family knows the local environment and local trees, and can safely and quickly assess a tree’s state, deciding if tree removal is the best mode of attack. We can also remove trees that are causing an obstruction to homes, foundations, sidewalks, driveways, underground pipes, or power lines.
Tree removal requires careful planning, precise cutting, and expert rigging to manage large pieces of falling wood. We have a proven reputation of quick and safe tree removal, while protecting the rest of your landscape and property. Tree removal services also include stump grinding, removing shrubs down to the roots and ensuring that they do not grow back.
How Do You Know If Your Tree Needs To Be Removed?
- The tree is invasive: Invasive trees may look good but they can cause great damage to your surrounding native trees by fighting for light, take Bradford pears for example.
- The tree has pest damage: Pest won’t always be the main reason for removal but it is important if you notice borer holes in your tree to call JTS especially if it’s an ash tree the emerald ash borer is no joke and will put many ash trees to their death.
- The tree is in a bad location: Occasionally you may have a perfectly healthy tree and over time it grows in a bad location, for example, close to your house or right under a power line where limbs will grow into it. That’s why it’s important to remove hazardous trees while they are younger, smaller, and easier to deal with.
- The tree is dead or dying: If the tree is dead or dying it always makes sense to go along with the removal process quickly to avoid damage in the case of a storm or heavy winds.
- The tree has a large lean: If you notice your tree has an obvious major lean it’s important to call a certified arborist to recommend the best removal process.
- The tree has a fungal disease: If you notice wilting falling leaves or large indent in the wood, or maybe scabs on your fruit trees it’s a good chance your tree is diseased while not all diseases are fatal they are all important and should be treated as soon as need to avoid the removal process.
Why You Shouldn’t Do Tree Removal Yourself
Tree removal can be dangerous for the common homeowner in St. Louis for many reasons. One of the biggest threats is power lines. Not only can falling branches, limbs, or trees come down on the power line and take out power to the neighborhood, but there’s also the risk of accidentally touching the power lines when you’re taking out the tree.
There is also the danger of falling when cutting down your tree. Even if the tree is perfectly healthy, removal still means having to climb the tree, and there’s also the risk that you’re going to fall out, either because you lose your balance because a branch breaks, because the ladder falls, or because the tools are too heavy and unwieldy.
