Cleanup Activities After Tree Removal Project

After I realized that my entire yard was at risk because of our towering pine trees, I decided to start looking for a professional tree service company. I didn't necessarily want to chop the trees down, but I knew that they needed to be trimmed in order to keep millions of pine needles from falling all over my yard. It was a lot of work, but I decided that it would be smart to protect my investments. After finding a great business, it was incredible to see how well they trimmed the trees and tidied up the foliage. This blog is all about working with a great tree service.

Removing a tree, especially a large tree or several trees, can leave you with a huge mess that may require resources to clean up. Fortunately, in addition to tree removal, most tree companies offer clean up services for their clients. Below are some of the clearing and cleanup activities you may get from your tree removal company.

Stump Removal

Stump removal is typically not included in standard tree removal quotes. Moreover, not everyone removes the stump after removing a tree. You can leave the stump to decay on its own or even trim it to become part of your landscaping. In many cases, however, the stump becomes an eyesore, attracts pests, and is a trip and fall risk. That is why many tree removers offer stump removal as an additional service.

Chip the Wood

One way of getting rid of the tree materials is to cut it down into small pieces. This is known as wood chipping, and it involves using a machine (wood chipper) that uses a combustion engine. The wood is inserted into one end of the chipper, the chipper cuts it down into small pieces, and the wood chips come out of the other end. You can use the wood chips for various purposes such as mulching, composting, and fuel, among other uses.

Wood Chopping and Splitting

After removing a large tree, you can chop or split the wood for various purposes. For example, you can split the wood into lumber that you can use to make furniture, such as garden benches. You can also split and chop the trunk and large branches for fencing posts and firewood, among other useful purposes.

Raking and Clearing

Even after removing the stump, chopping the wood, or splitting the log, there may still be some debris from the removal project. Small branches, twigs, and leaves and even some materials from the main trunk and branches can clog your home. Many tree removal companies will help you rake and clean the debris so well that a passerby cannot immediately tell that a tree has been removed from the site.

Material Disposal

Removing a huge tree is likely to leave you with a huge pile of waste. You may not have use for all that waste, especially if you don't want to use it for mulching or as firewood. Your tree removal company may be able to help you move the materials to the nearest landfill.

If you need additional services after the tree removal, you need to include the services in your tree removal quotes. That is the best way to get an accurate quote from your chosen tree company.
