Tree Removal

Does My Tree Need
to Be Removed?

Our mission is to never recommend tree removal when it is not warranted. Our certified arborists have more experience with hazardous trees than anyone else in our industry. We are properly trained in diagnosing dangerous trees and recognizing factors that may contribute to tree failure. We do not take a biased approach when evaluating trees for risk. Our job is to provide you with all of the facts and help you make an informed decision regarding the safety, health, and appeal of your trees.

For many homeowners, evaluating tree health and potential tree removal can be difficult. Consider the following signs and conditions when assessing the trees in your own yard.

Dead Trees

Unsightly and dangerous, dead trees should be removed from your property as soon as possible to avoid creating hazardous conditions or incurring greater costs. Wood becomes unstable the longer it is left to rot, and, if left for too long, the tree will be so unstable that arbortists will not be able to climb it to trim larger limbs. The tree will then require specialized equipment to remove and increase the overall cost of removal. Some indicators that a tree may be dead include:

 

  • An absence of leaves during periods when leaves should be present
  • Large pieces of bark that are noticeably separating from the trunk
  • The breaking off or dropping of large limbs

Dying or Declining Trees

In an effort to prevent the complications that can arise when removing dead trees, it is best to identify and remove declining or dying trees before they die completely. Such preventative action makes the tree removal process safer, easier, and less expensive. While it may be difficult to spot a tree in decline, some signs that a tree is dying tree include:

 

  • Bare or leafless branches throughout the tree during periods when leaves should be present
  • Leaves turning brown out of season
  • The breaking off or dropping of limbs

Aesthetically Challenged Trees

Sometimes a tree is removed simply because it’s too dang ugly. Yard aesthetics and curb appeal are important, but landscapes require diversity to be complete, meaning that not all crooked, gangly, or unattractive trees should be removed. However, if a tree is so unappealing that it distracts from the beauty of the yard or home, JV Tree Services can remove it safely and efficiently.

Structurally Unstable Trees

Like dead trees, trees that have become structurally unsound present a significant hazard to home and personal safety. Instability may be the result of number of factors, including disease, pests, and poor tree health. Vigilance is key to spotting unstable trees before they become dangerous. Factors that may warrant the immediate removal of a tree include:

 

  • Cracks in the trunk of the tree that may run either laterally or vertically
  • Large cavities in the trunk from old pruning wounds
  • Decaying or rotting roots
  • The presence of diseases that cause abnormal growth patterns

Overcrowded Area

Because trees are large plants that grow best when they do not have to compete with one another, thinning of overcrowded areas may be essential to maintain the health of your trees. Assessing overcrowded conditions and determining which trees should be removed is highly scientific and specialized work, and should only be conducted under the supervision of an experienced arborist. To deciding what’s best for your yard, JV Tree services will gladly come out and assess which trees should be removed or pruned so others can properly develop.

Landscape Needs

Arborists and tree specialists are often on the front lines of any new landscaping process. Tree removal is typically incorporated into new landscape designs, and JV tree services works closely with landscape architects to ensure we meet all landscaping goals. Whether you are a landscape architect or a homeowner, JV tree services is committed to making your trees, and your yard, look their very best.

Regardless of the reason, tree removal is a challenging process best left to the professionals. JV Tree Services has the equipment, skills, and expertise to tackle complex removals.

They came out for just the crazy palm tree last time, and charged me way less than I thought the job was worth. Gonzales Landscaping is the best tree service in the Thousand Oaks area. Not only are their prices the lowest I’ve paid, but they’re very professional, prompt, and the crew does a great job.
