The best tree removal Calgary services are able to remove dead, dying or damaged trees on-site in the fastest time possible. In addition, arborists can perform regular maintenance on your trees, pruning branches to correct growth problems, and clean out debris such as branches after a storm or severe weather. To ensure that everything goes smoothly, you should have a contract with a qualified arborist.
Tree removal services ensure that trees are removed in the most efficient way possible. This includes making sure that all necessary permits are in place, including applicable fees and inspections. If there are any restrictions or requirements related to the working hours of the arborist, this should be mentioned up front. It is important for arborists to operate within the time frame given by local bylaws and regulations.
Before beginning work on your arborist’s schedule, it is important to check whether or not the property in question is zoned for arborism. Many communities have restrictive rules about what types of trees can be grown on a property. If so, arborists may not be able to start working until a permit is obtained through the City of Calgary. If there are no zoning restrictions, city staff will be able to direct the arborist on the best way to work on your property.
A professional arborist should be able to identify trees that pose the most risk for fall damage. For this reason, he/she will perform a thorough inspection before beginning work. This is also the time to discuss plans for turning leaf and other types of debris into smaller pieces that can be pruned and/or removed. Some tree services offer tree pruning services, which are additional services that should be considered. For example, some arborists can turn small twigs, leaves and branches into tiny flower and fruit baskets, while others can remove unwanted branches and re-grow shrubs.
When arborists in Calgary remove large trees or dead ones, they often use stump grinding. This is the process of removing the largest pieces of the stump, while leaving the heartwood intact. Stump grinding has been used by arborists in Calgary since the late 1800s, when it was first developed as an alternative to felling trees and using the stump as a source of sawdust for constructing lumber. The process is quite mechanical and does take some skill. A team of arborists needs to be available to hold the stump in place while the grinding occurs. This provides an opportunity for conversation about the future of the tree and also provides a chance for arborists to get to know the homeowners whose property the stump belongs to.
In addition to tree services, many Calgary residents need to hire a tree service for tree removal, pruning, stump grinding and other services. Depending upon the size of the job, it may be wise to contact more than one Calgary arborist. Sometimes, depending on the arborist’s skill level, only part of the job is completed. It is important, however, that each arborist working in the area knows what he or she is doing. In most cases, if a tree care dispute arises between two different arborists, the best thing to do is to communicate with both arborists before the work is started, which will allow each arborist to know what the second arborist is planning to do. Communication can prevent problems that could have been caused by miscommunication of the work being done.
