There is a lot of talk in the world today about being a little more respectful and conservative when it comes to trees. After all, trees are absolutely critical in the production of oxygen, and life on this planet could not exist to the level of complexity, diversity, and number which we enjoy. As a matter of fact, nothing much bigger than insects and frogs could exist without trees, and that is purely theoretical.
So, it’s natural that you may be reticent to seek out tree removal in Sydney, especially in Sydney of all places in fact. One of Sydney’s big points of pride is how green it is, this is an easy city the love because of how beautiful it is, on top of its hard-working, diverse people and magnificent availability of culture.
Tree stump removal is more understandable, as stumps tend to already be dead, and they can be quite in the way, but are there cases where tree removal is called for?
When do I need tree removal?
There may be a few different reasons why you need tree removal in Sydney, and I am going to point out a few of them here. The main concern is often that a tree can become dangerous, either because it is overgrown, due to new developments in its vicinity, or it becoming sickly. Trees can be quite dangerous, at the end of the day. Remember, they are very tall and very heavy, and should they fall over in a windstorm, or under their own way, they can damage property, and even cost lives.
Other cases may be situations where a tree is an invasive or undesired species, or that something needs to be built where the tree is. Still, other cases may be situations where the roots of a tree are trying to tear up a patio, porch, or foundation. Tree roots can be a real menace in that way.
Are there challenges with tree stump removal?
Tree stump removal is difficult, and I can personally vouch for this. A very stubborn, very old tree in the backyard of a house I once rented cause my poor landlady to struggle forever trying to eliminate. She eventually managed to get it cut down to a stump but had to have a capable company come to remove it. I must say that it was quite a sight to watch them, they came in with specialized chain solves, winches, and other tools, and they made quick work of that son of a gun.
In truth, they managed to remove that stump in less than 10 minutes, though it would have cost extra to have them haul off the wood afterward.
Now, when it comes to tree stump removal, you will find that it depends on exactly what you need to do in the space where the stump was, how easy it is to remove it. They simply needed to remove it from the ground but didn’t need to remove the roots, as nothing was going to be built in the area, the tree was just an eyesore, and it needed to go.
If you plan to build a plant or otherwise use the land where the stump was, it will need to be drilled a groundout, and the large primary route lines will have to be removed. As is the case with most tree-related concerns, I recommend that you choose a service whose focus is mainly arboreal, not just a general landscaper. General landscapers are more than capable, but they will probably actually charge you more, and it will take them longer to do it as they aren’t set up for the project.
