Top 10 Reasons for Tree Removal

Somerset, Somerset County, New Jersey

There are numerous reasons clients may call upon a tree service for tree removal, anywhere from a safety hazard, to simply satisfying visual aesthetics. The removal of trees, trunks, branches and stumps is critical when a tree suffers from severe disease, or is damaged by inclement weather. Only in cases in which branches rub or cross, should individual branches be removed. A tree that is unhealthy, but remains standing, will ultimately lose its strength and upon collapsing can result in severe property damage, or to a greater degree, can cost lives.
