Trees are beautiful things. But if you have one in your yard that is getting too big, the only option left is to have it removed.

What exactly happens when the trees are removed? How is it done? What's left? And what do you have to do before it is removed?

Read on as we take a look at what to expect from a tree removal service.

What to expect
What to expect from a tree removal service depends on a number of factors.

The size of your tree will affect the way the removal is done. The location of your tree is also an issue. A tree that is alone and far from buildings is much easier to remove than a tree near a house or near power lines.
But in general tree removal will be done using similar procedures.

What will it cost?
The cost of removing a tree depends on the size and difficulty of removing it.

As a rough guide, the cost can range from a few hundred dollars for a small tree to over a thousand dollars for a large tree that must be carefully removed. There will also be additional costs if you want to have the stump removed or to sand it down so that it doesn't protrude.
It is always worth checking with your tree removal service to get an idea of the costs in your particular case.

What is it related to?
There are two main methods of tree removal.
If the tree has enough space, it can be felled in one piece. The trunk is cut from the direction it is supposed to fall. When the tree falls to the ground, it is cut into smaller pieces.

If the tree is near buildings or power lines, this method is not practical or safe. In these cases, the tree would be scaled and the branches would be cut off individually from top to bottom. If necessary, these are secured with ropes so that they do not fall into power lines or onto buildings.

What will be left?
At a typical distance, the tree will be felled to a low stump.

The branches are either cut into regular pieces to be used as firewood, or they are removed according to the customer's request. If you want to get rid of the stump, you can either remove it entirely or have it sanded down until it is no longer visible.

There is usually an extra charge to removing the stump as it involves much more work than leaving the stump in place.

How to prepare
If you are going to have a tree removed, you need to make some preparation first.

These aren't too expensive, but they will make the life of your tree removal service easier. Preparing your property in advance means your tree can be removed quickly and safely with a minimum of fuss.

Create space for the vehicles
There is usually a lot of equipment involved in removing trees.

So make sure that there is enough space for your tree removal service to park the vehicles. There will likely be a large truck as well as a wood chipper that must be easily accessible. The closer they can park near your property, the better.

It might be worth reserving some parking spaces in advance instead of leaving it to luck.

Free access to the tree
The workers have to drive back and forth from their vehicles to the tree.

So make sure there is a clear route to go back and forth on. The last thing you want is for them to try to squeeze past the cars parked in the driveway when they are carrying wood or equipment.

Having alternative access to your yard can make things a lot easier. You may also need to let your neighbours know what is going to happen.

Remove everything that is fragile
Many branches will likely be removed from the tree.
So if you have any fragile objects near the tree, such as plant pots or furniture, move them out of the way or elsewhere. If your moving company has to move items themselves, the process will be longer and you may receive additional fees for the additional time.
Also try to keep your yard clear of animals for the duration of the process, as they could pose a serious safety risk to you and the workers.

Agree what you need
If you want to have the stump removed, you need to agree on this beforehand. If you suddenly decide you want to get it done after the job is done, you may not be able to do it on the same tour. It can also cost you more than you would have paid if you had agreed before starting work.

Take the time to discuss all of your options so that everyone is clear about the work that is going to take place.
