Keys to Proper Tree Removal in Toronto
Tree removal requires careful planning, a high level of skill and proper equipment to get it done effectively.

Perhaps the tree is obstructing a beautiful sight in your landscape. You could want it gone because it’s sick, dehydrated or diseased and risks the surrounding plants. Trees that don’t grow well may also need to be removed or become a serious safety hazard in your compound. Whatever your reasons for tree removal Toronto, understand that this is a serious process that needs to be approached with caution.
Always consider the location of the tree
When removing a tree, one of the most important things to consider is its location. If the tree is away from houses and other obstacles, it will require less effort to remove. However, if the tree is crossing power lines or is very close to your house, there are many risks for damage to occur. In a windy weather trees can down electrical wires which will cause safety hazard and would have to be fixed by licensed electrician (if on private property) or Hydro One. Therefore, we will ensure that all the safety measures are taken for the removal to be done without causing property damage. In fact, trees that are close to obstacles require more complicated techniques and advanced equipment during removal.
Is your tree damaged?
After a major storm or high winds, you may notice some damage on your tree. Tree removal needs to be done cautiously in order to prevent additional damage. Remember that damaged trees are riskier to remove because the workers are more likely to be injured. It’s always worthwhile to have the tree safely removed by an expert. You can avoid serious injuries and a host of other problems.
What affects the cost of tree removal in Toronto?
The state of the tree will certainly determine the preventative measures that need to be taken during removal. How much you pay for tree removal will depend on many things such as the size, condition, diameter or location of the tree. The longer the tree, the more complicated and risky it is to remove it. A tree that is healthy and strong also requires more effort to remove than a dead, dying or rotting tree. Another important factor that will determine how much you pay for the tree to be removed is its diameter. A thick tree trunk would be harder to remove than a long, slimmer tree.
Additional services after tree removal in Toronto
After the tree is removed, you may require additional services such as stump removal, limb chipping, log splitting and hauling away the tree limbs. Make sure you factor this into the total cost of the tree removal service. Sometimes getting rid of a tree is the only way to reduce the potential risks involved when it’s left in your compound.

Tree Branch Removal Cost: ~$200-$300
There are cases when you only need a tree branch removed.
