When a home owner is in need of tree removal, they are very rarely going to take care of that moving part themselves. Very few people have the ability or the tools that would be necessary for them to remove a large tree from their property, and so they nearly always look to a professional tree removal service, such as JBs Tree Care, to take care of that work for them. Because the professionals come in to handle it, there are many steps that are required and that the company will go through to ensure that the project is completed in a safe and effective way for all involved.
- Quote. The first phase of the project will be the initial meeting and the quote. The one who is doing the quoting will come to the location and look at the tree and the area surrounding the tree. Based on what they see they will create an estimate for the homeowner. This will take into the height of the tree, the width of the tree, the percentage of dead limbs that must be removed, the location of the tree in relation to the road, sidewalk, and house or any other buildings, as well as the surrounding ground surface. All of these elements go together to determine exactly what level of risk the project is, and how many hours it will take to get the project completed. The requirements of the job will weigh heavily on the overall cost of the quote.
- Approval. Once the home owner has seen the quote and chooses to hire that company for the work, then the formal approval of the quote and a contract will be drawn up that will be between the home owner and the tree trimming or removal company.
- Planning. The planning process will start next, and the tree removal company will come back out to the property to be sure they are aware of all the surrounding elements. They will need to plan how the tree will come down as well as how it will be removed. This can be a very complex and difficult process, and due to those concerns there is a lot of planning that will go into the whole process.
- Tree Removal. The team will take the plan that was developed in the planning process and they will implement the tree removal. They will show up with the proper equipment, from ladders and chain saws to cherry pickers depending on the location of the tree to the road. They will start from the top and take the tree down in small pieces until they have gotten to the stump. The reason for the small pieces is that the whole tree coming down in one lump piece is going to be dangerous to those around the tree as well as the home if it is in the same area. They will then tear the stump out of the ground and fill in the hole. The pieces that were cut down will all be removed from the property, unless the home owner is choosing to keep them and cut them up further into fire wood pieces.
