Date August 19, 2022
If you’re a business owner, you know it’s important to keep your property looking its best. One way to do this is by ensuring that all of the trees on your property are healthy and well-maintained. However, sometimes trees need to be removed for safety or liability reasons. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the importance of tree removal for commercial properties. We’ll also talk about when tree removal might be necessary and what services are available to help you with this process. Thanks for reading!
Why Trees Are Important for Commercial Landscaping
There’s no doubt that trees are essential for the environment and that they should be included in commercial landscaping efforts. Healthy, well-maintained trees increase property values, make a great impression on customers, and provide shade and wind resistance to create a pleasant outdoor atmosphere. However, one thing that business owners don’t think about enough is the importance of commercial tree care and tree removal.
The Importance of Tree Removal for Commercial Properties
Trees that have not been well-maintained pose enormous safety risks and can potentially damage properties and infrastructure. Overhanging branches can snap at any time, or entire trees can fall, causing injuries or death and damage to property, cars, and infrastructure. It can also impede traffic from a busy intersection. Storms exacerbate these risks.
Unhealthy trees are not beneficial to your business and can prevent an outdoor space from being useful. Customers and employees will be far less likely to take advantage of your landscaped spaces like outdoor seating, courtyards, walkways, or playgrounds if the trees are decaying, dead, diseased, or infested with pests.
While getting rid of all trees is not the answer, knowing when a tree needs to be removed can prevent potential damage, lawsuits, and enormous costs down the line.
Tree Removal or Tree Care Services?
Trees are extremely valuable and should not be removed unless there is no other choice. Some issues can be taken care of with professional tree care to prevent the complete removal of a tree. Below, we’ll examine common scenarios that can either be mitigated with tree care services or need to be removed.
- Infection – there are many ways a tree can become infected with disease, fungus, or pests. Discolored leaves, cracks in the tree trunk, wilting leaves, mold, and canopy dieback are symptoms of infection. Depending on the tree’s condition, this can be mitigated with tree care services.
- Dead limbs attract a host of fungi, insects, and diseases when left on trees. If not properly trimmed, these stressors can spread to the rest of the tree and adjacent trees. In most cases, routine tree trimming can help.
- Excessive leaning – trees with poor structure are at high risk for storm damage, and they have the potential to be completely uprooted and topple over, destroying anything in their trajectory. Tree removal may be the only option.
If your trees show any of these signs, contact an ISA Certified Arborist for a consultation today.
Tree Removal Cost
While commercial property owners may think the cost of tree removal is high, improper attempts at tree removal or neglecting to remove a risky tree could result in potential lawsuits and damage to power lines, property, and cars. This will be exponentially more expensive than hiring a commercial tree removal company. Not all tree removal projects are the same. Some factors contributing to the complexity and cost include:
- Tree height
- Tree health condition
According to Manta.com, the average cost of removing a medium-sized Dallas tree in 2022 is between $457 to $623. This does not include permits for tree removal in Dallas, inspection fees, sales tax, or general contractor fees.
