Although regrettable, sometimes tree removal is necessary. This is no job for do-it-yourselfers; a professional should remove large trees, as guide ropes and mechanical equipment may be required for removing large limbs before felling. It is important to choose a company with the experience & equipment to do the job safely and it is very important that a company is fully bonded, licensed and insured.

Trees are living organisms subject to constant stress. Dead, dying and diseased trees and trees with serious structural defects will fail at some point, because trees are living things and will someday either fall or be cut down. Pay particular attention to older trees, which may have accumulated multiple defects and extensive decay. Without proper care trees can become hazardous to people & property: roots invade sewer lines, damage concrete sidewalks and patios and could damage the concrete foundation of your house. Branches may fall on and damage your children, pets, or the roof of your house. Branches can also grow into power and phone lines. Certain tree species are prone to specific types of defects. For example, some species of maple and ash often form weak branch unions, and aspen is prone to breakage at a young age (50-70 years) due to a variety of factors, including decay and cankers.

Tree removal is a prudent least-cost decision when compared to the value of your home, pets, and family.

Removal is necessary when a tree…

  • Is dead, dying, or considered hazardous or is close to a structure or house.
  • Shows sign of decay, stress and self-pruning branches.
  • Has roots, seen or unseen, which are invasive and could potentially damage the house foundation, sidewalks, or walls.
  • Presents a hazardous condition for pedestrians or kids playing under it.
  • Causes an obstruction or is crowding and causing harm to other trees and the situation is impossible to correct through pruning
  • Is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen for the location.
  • Should be removed to allow for construction

How to tell when a tree is ready to be removed:

  • Dead, dying or storm-damaged trees should be removed for health, safety and aesthetic purposes.
  • In certain instances live trees also should be removed when they interfere with other trees, buildings, driveways and utility wires.
  • Trees that require extensive drop-crotch trimming
  • Trees located at homes, schools, parks, businesses, or other areas, which children may climb easily that are near overhead conductors.
  • Trees growing too close-within six feet-to a house, fence, patio or sidewalk

Tree in front of Camarillo home with weakened trunk.

The ash tree in the above photo looks healthy enough, but upon closer inspection you can see that the weight of the divided sections of the trunk have split the tree, almost all the way down to the ground (see below). The tree had to be removed because it posed a hazard to people and property.
