Damaged or Falling Tree? Emergency Tree Removal Services
Trees naturally grow tall and strong, and they’re likely going to continue growing without issue for many years. However, weather and other factors can cause trees to fall. High winds can cause trees to topple, lighting can break off large parts of a tree or cause the tree to fall, and trees can fall if they become too old or they’re suffering from diseases. Trees can also fall when there has been too much rain in the area, and the roots aren’t long enough to hold the tree in place in waterlogged soil. When any of these things do happen, and a tree is at risk of falling or has fallen, it’s time to call the pros at Swell Emergency Tree Removal Service for help. We can remove any damaged or fallen tree, keeping you and your family safe.
Dealing with Trees at Risk of Falling
Trees that are damaged may be at risk of falling. In these cases, it’s best to have a professional take a look right away to see what can be done. In some cases, even if a tree is damaged, it may be possible to save some or all of the tree. Depending on the type and severity of the damage, however, the tree may need to be removed. If it’s removed before it falls, a lot of damage can be prevented. Removing it can also help you make sure the tree isn’t going to cause any injuries when it does come down. It is always recommended to have a professional handle the removal to avoid the risk of damage or injuries.
Dealing with a Fallen Tree
If a tree has already fallen, it may have caused damages to the property. Even if it didn’t damage anything, it does need to be removed right away. Fallen trees can invite a number of dangerous pests into the yard, as well as termites and other creatures that can cause damage to the home. If the tree has fallen on anything, leave it where it is and contact a pro for help. We can remove the tree quickly, without causing further damage, and help keep you from being injured. With our emergency tree removal service, you won’t have to worry about the tree being there long.
The Dangers of Fallen Trees
When a tree falls, it can cause a ton of damage as it comes down. The biggest concerns for homeowners are typically injuries and property damage. If a tree looks like it’s going to fall, it’s best to stay far away and call for emergency removal. When a tree does fall, if it hits someone, it could cause serious injuries or death. If the tree has already fallen, it can still cause injuries if it shifts while being cut or if someone tries to get underneath it to access the damaged property.
Fallen trees can cause serious damage to homes, vehicles, fences, and anything else they might fall on. Depending on the size of the tree, the amount of damage can be significant. Even smaller trees, however, can cause broken glass in windows, damage to the roof of a home, or serious damage to smaller buildings like sheds. If a tree has fallen on a part of the property and caused damage, avoid the area until a professional can assess the damage.
What to Do About the Tree
If you’ve noticed a tree that is leaning, is damaged, or has fallen, avoid the area close to the tree and where it could land if it falls or shifts. As soon as possible, contact us for an emergency tree removal service. While we will arrive quickly, if the tree has fallen on your home, leave the home for the time being and stay somewhere safer. Once the tree has been removed, you can assess the damage to the property and start the necessary repairs for your home, vehicle, or other property. We will work hard to remove the whole tree as quickly as possible, so you don’t have to wait long to be able to access the property again.
How the Pros Remove the Tree
When you call to request our emergency tree service, we strive to make sure the tree is removed as quickly and safely as possible. We start by assessing the situation and determining the best way to remove the tree. Next, we’ll start cutting the tree into smaller pieces. This is done to help relieve pressure on the property under the tree and to break the tree into pieces that are easier to carry away. Once all of the main parts of the tree have been removed, we’ll start working on removing the smaller branches that may be left on the ground. When we’re done, you’ll be able to access the property again and start looking into your next steps.
What Happens Next?
What happens next depends on the way the tree fell and what is left after it’s removed. If the tree fell because it was broken, the stump is still in the ground and will need to be removed. If the tree fell over, stump and all, everything will be removed at once. Then, once the fallen tree removal is done, you’ll be able to focus on your property and restoring anything that was damaged by the tree. Depending on the damage, you may need to seek emergency repairs for your home or vehicle.
