Trees are more than just giant plants

They purify our water, they oxygenate the atmosphere breathe, they lessen loud noise and also they slow down the speed of climate change. Trees likewise enable biodiversity since they are normally host to various plant and fauna varieties. The Arbor Day Foundation says that just one big tree is able to generate a day's supply of oxygen for up to 4 adult individuals. They are without a doubt desirable concerning the planet, our ecosystem and they lift our frame of mind too. More than 99% of the time they are a solely benign presence in our lives.

So precisely what is the function of tree removal? Why is this, the most extreme type of tree service, ever needed?

Trees are alive but can die too

If ever a tree becomes unhealthy, it loses its structural vigor which in turn compromises its ability to carry above many tons of lumber and leaf, especially in a gusty storm. And so any time our arborist is requested to examine your trees as part of our removal operations in your location, she typically checks for the following weak spots:

Lean - Should your tree start to slant to one side where it had not been slanting previously; it might indicate a damaged tree. Damage can be more severe if seen with bare branches and/or sagging limbs without leaves.

Trunk - small wood grains lying at ground around the bottom of the trunk suggests that tree-boring pests are burrowing inside or laying eggs. In this instance the destruction will most likely take place unseen. The tree will most likely end up being progressively weak from disease and lack of structural cohesion. Then it will probably collapse.

Various other symptoms of problems might be discovered if the trunk has bark missing or perhaps fairly flaky bark. Our experts examine openings and cracks within the trunk too, particularly if recent.

Species-specific problems – Our thorough knowledge of known problems with specific tree species. For example, Bay Trees and Avocado Trees are under threat from a recent pest infestation in Florida and Georgia. The problem is a recent proliferation of a non-native pest, the Red Bay Ambrosia Beetle and the blue stain virus it carries and introduces to the tree. Symptoms become visible when all the leaves on the Bay Tree quickly turn brown and remain attached to the tree. Very careful removal and disposal is required to avoid spreading the disease. Treatment for high value trees MAY be economic if the pest infestation is caught early enough. All work should be conducted by a certified arborist with up-to-date pest control certification.

Roots - The health and well-being of the root system is every bit as significant with respect to the physical condition of the tree. If they indicate breakage or decay, then your tree is probably in danger. Normally, tree roots have a healthy symbiotic relationship with various fungi below ground. But actual fungus visibly growing on either the tree roots above ground or perhaps near the bottom of the tree trunk identifies that the wood inside is rotting and has died. In case there's a load of fungal proliferation (mushroom-like protrusions), certainly the tree will be beyond rescuing and it will tumble down earlier as opposed to in the far future.

An uplift of soil next to the roots implies a partly unstable tree. One single strong gust could see the tree falling down, with a little luck not on top of your home.

Port Orange legislation on removing trees

In the sunshine state of Florida, taking out trees necessitates that you first and foremost obtain a permit for removing trees …mostly. There are a number of exemptions. For example, even though Volusia County and the City of Port Orange take environmental protection very seriously, they largely exempt single and dual family residential units from having to obtain a removal permit.  At the time of writing, it also lists some 11 non-native species of tree for which you will need no permit. Examples include Eucalyptus, Chinese Tallow tree and the Brazilian pepper tree. This exemption is subject to 6 provisos so care is still needed in applying this exemption to your particular tree and location.

We are not lawyers but we can share what we know, point you to the legislation adopted by city authorities and indicate which city department to call. If a tree services company say they will apply for a permit on your behalf make sure you give your authority on the proper form and ask to see the removal permit BEFORE work starts.

Tree Removal Cost

Our company makes every effort to keep our costs and therefore your invoice as affordable as we are able.
