Situations Where Tree Removal is Required in Vancouver
There is an assortment of reasons why a tree might need to be removed. One reason for tree removal may be to simply improve the curb appeal of the property. In other cases, the tree may be taken out in order to be replaced by a different type of tree. A tree risk assessment might determine that the tree may be a very significant danger to the surrounding area. For instance, the tree might be:
- Encroaching too close to a common structure like a sidewalk or pathway
- On the brink of falling over as a result of being dead or dying
- Severely damaging a building’s foundation
- Damaged by pests or other external forces beyond hope of becoming strong and sturdy again
For any of these scenarios where there is any potential danger, we recommend that the tree be removed quickly. Having a tree health asssessment done will verify the exact risk that a tree poses to your property, if you are uncertain. When having a tree removed, best practices put in place by the ISA should be met in order to ensure a safe and efficient removal. There’s no tree removal project too complex or too simple for our services. After a tree risk assessment has verified that the tree needs to be taken down, a crew from Richmond Tree Care will make sure it gets done promptly.
Vancouver Tree Removal Permit Application and Bylaw Information
If you thinking about having any trees removed, you may be required to obtain a tree removal permit from the City. The mission of the Tree Bylaw in effect in Vancouver is to protect certain trees in the City and ensure a balanced amount of green space. You can read about the Vancouver Tree Bylaw to find out if you need to apply for a permit. Having a tree removed without a permit could result in fines. If you would like assistance with the permit application process, feel free to ask us.
The Risks Associated With a Hazard Tree
Anything in the surrounding area of a damaged, dying or dead tree may be at significant risk. This can include houses, buildings, businesses, and not to mention, people. Hazardous trees, if not dealt with promptly, can potentially have their branches come tumbling down to anything below without notice. A sizable tree branch can weigh more than a ton and cause massive damage to anything beneath it. An entire tree can topple over if the roots are weak. The damage that a tree can do isn’t limited to areas above the soil. If not dealt with early on, a tree’s root structure can inflict a lot of havoc to a building’s foundation, which can be very expensive to correct.
