Situations That Require Tree Removal in Ladner
Tree removal can be necessary for a range of reasons. Improving the appearance of a yard is one reason a tree may be removed. Alternatively, you may want to replace the current tree with a different species. Ocassionally, the tree may be a very significant threat. For instance, the tree might be:
- Damaging a building’s foundation critically
- Too close to a common structure like a house or pathway
- Structurally unsound due to being dead or dying
- Damaged by pests or other external forces beyond hope of becoming structurally stable again
In all of these cases where there is any potential danger, we suggest that the tree be removed quickly. When in doubt, a tree risk assessment will evaluate the amount of risk that a tree poses to your property. When removing a tree, all standards put in place by the International Society of Arboriculture should be met in order to make sure the removal is done in an efficient and safe manner. There’s no tree too big or too small for our us. Once a tree health assessment has determined that the tree must go, Richmond Tree Care will make sure it gets done promptly.

Why Hazardous Trees are So Risky
Anything in the vicinity of a dead, dying or damaged tree may be in imminent danger. This may include businesses, houses, cars, and most importantly, people. If not attended to professionally, a hazardous tree or a part of it can potentially come crashing down unpredictably, crushing anything below it. A hefty tree branch can weigh thousands of pounds and inflict heavy damage to anything beneath it. With shallow roots, a whole tree can fall down. In addition to risks above the soil, the damage that a tree’s roots can do to a building’s foundation can be extremely costly if it’s not taken care of early on.
Point of View of a Tree Removal
How Do I Start On My Tree Removal Project?
If a tree appears to be dead or dying, it is hard to tell whether the tree should be removed simply by looking at it. The tree will need to be assessed by a certified and experienced arborist to know for sure if the tree should be taken out. Our team of arborists will be more than willing to provide you with an affordable health assessment for any tree you are unsure of. Our risk assessments are comprehensive and take every possible issue into consideration.
