Having a garden is probably every home owner’s dream. One of the best elements in a garden is, of course, the tree because it provides shade and gives a certain air of elegance.

Here are some very important information about the whole process of removing trees from your future majestic garden. But if you’re still curious, you can check out your local tree surgeon or arborist.
Trees are always welcome in any garden but sometimes, situations call for the need to remove them. Some of these cases include:
- Wrong location of the tree – it may be blocking sunshine or a view
- Tree is infested – it may have wood-eating insects
- You need space – the area of the tree will be used for a house or structure
- Neighbors will be in danger – the tree poses an obvious threat
- The tree is dead – long live the tree!
Who does tree removals?
Who should you call if your garden has a tree or trees you want removed? Doing it yourself is definitely out of the question as it is very dangerous to you, your property and to your neighbors. And besides, you probably don’t have the right equipment to remove a tree properly. Your best option is to call your local arborist who is a highly trained having professional.
Do you need a permit to remove a tree?
You need to contact your local city council to know the rules and regulations before you do any planning. Most likely you will need a permit to remove a tree.

The tree removal specialists
Get information about the specialist that you want to hire. You want to make sure that he or she is qualified, well-trained, has extensive experience and has references and recommendations. Also, it is good to check kinds of insurance they offer – usually, liability, professional indemnity and personal insurance. Ask for their quotation and the services that are included. Ask for their other services you might want to avail of in the future. Most arborists also do the following services:
- Removing of tree stumps
- Shaping and pruning
- Storm damage cleaning up
And the trees?
After being cut down, your arborist will dispose of all the tree branches, tree debris and other wooden parts including the tree stump. You could ask them to turn the wood into mulch and by doing this, you will probably get a lower cost because they will not have to do any tree disposal.
