Firstly, before we talk about palm trees removal, let’s talk about the difference between tree removal and tree felling. Tree felling is the process of cutting down a tree. When the tree is cut down, there is a lesser danger of the tree falling on your property. But the stump is not removed and the roots are still in place, so there is a chance that it might grow back.
Tree removal means tree felling plus removal of the stump and all the roots. This is a more detailed job which requires time and technique. It is also messier than tree felling because the roots have to be removed as well.
Now, coming back to the removal of palm trees, there are some methods you can use to remove the tree yourself which include:
- Use of chemicals
- Slowly killing the tree
- Digging around the stump to remove it
These methods may prove useful for some but it is better to hire a service consisting of professionals who will be more efficient at the task and will take lesser time to do so. But how do you know which service to choose for the job? Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a service:
- Certified and experienced service
Be sure to look for a service that is certified. It is better to check with the company before time and ask them for their certifications. A removal service for palm trees that is qualified for this job should have proper documentation as proof of their credibility. Also, the service provided must be insured so that any mishaps during the job are covered by the insurance.
Experience is a must when you are about to hire a service. The experienced ones will know how to deal with tricky situations. If something unfortunate happens, they will be able to recall a similar situation in which they dealt with the same problem. So such a team will be more qualified to do your job.
- Fully Equipped and Professional
An ideal service should have all the necessary tools and equipment for the removal of palm trees. If they are missing some machinery or gear that is vital to the service being provided, then it can create a lot of problems. Call the service and ask them about their methods and processes by which they do their jobs.
The service that promises quality should have a team of professionals working for them. They should be in their proper uniforms. They should speak to you courteously and be detailed about the situation as they do their work. In the end, they have to give you a report on exactly what they did. Also, a billing detail for their service.
- All services under one roof
Prefer a company that offers a number of services instead of one. Such a company can offer you more services in the future such as tree trimming, pruning, stump removal and tree care.
