Today, however – we’re going to try and answer that question for you the best we can. When is the best time and can you afford to wait until then? The big answer is ‘it depends’ – but there are better times than others. Let’s jump right in.
We can begin answering this question by telling you exactly what the answer isn’t – and that’s any time there is an emergency. If you have hanging limbs or a tree that poses a threat to the safety of you, your family, structures and other trees – then it needs to go immediately. What’s most important is your family’s safety. Don’t leave it to risk in order to save a few bucks.
The same goes for trees that are diseased or suffering from an infestation. You need to remove these trees as soon as possible or you risk infecting other plants and trees around them. If you don’t, you could be stuck in a situation where one, isolated infection becomes a much bigger one. When it comes to removing trees for absolutely anything else – it’s best to have them removed in whatever their dormant season so happens to be. Dormant trees don’t have leaves and because of that they are lighter and easier to cut and dispose of. In addition, trunks, branches and the like are simply easier to get at – which means arborists can usually do the job pretty quickly.
Will it save me money?
That also depends on a lot of things. The cost to remove a tree depends mostly on the size and scale of the job. Then there’s the location, how easy it is to get to, specific needs of the tree itself, disposal and a whole mess of other things to consider. Time of year doesn’t factor too much into the overall price of cutting down a tree, but it certainly won’t hurt you.
What’s most important to remember is that cutting a tree down is a job for a professional only. There are a ton of hidden costs and penalties people don’t even think about – such as permitting, insurance,
etc – that can really add up that arborists are prepared for and can take care of. That’s not even getting into the safety precautions you need to take on. So when it comes time to cut down your tree – leave it to a pro.
