Tree removal should only be executed by experts who know how to safely get a tree down on the ground with professionalism. The goal at Picture Perfect Tree and Landscape is to keep trees healthy first, but sometimes there are instances when tree removal is the best option, such as with this particular Mound, MN client (Mound is located 15 minutes west of Wayzata).
The once beautiful large oak tree on this homeowner’s property had lived its life and was dead for the past year or so. The owner was worried that it might fall on his home or his neighbor’s property. He wasn’t sure if he needed to have it removed or not, however, so he wanted to talk to a tree service professional.
Because we have done tree work for him before, he knew we could be trusted. He asked us to come out for an estimate to look at the tree. We advised him that the tree be removed as there were risks associated with leaving it, including not only the fact that it could fall and cause property damage, but it could cost more to remove later if/when the limbs begin to break and/or fall. Plus, a tree that is aged can attract termites, ants and other wood-boring insects that can multiply upon the property and adversely affect other neighboring trees. If that wasn’t enough motivation to have the tree removed, dead trees are simply less visually appealing on properties. He was glad he called us and asked us to remove it as soon as we could.
Our crew had the tree down in one day and cleaned up by the end of the next day. The homeowner and his property (and his neighbor) is no longer at risk of damage from the tree and he has a nice stump left to carve a statue with, per his request.
