Do You Need A Crane To Remove Your Tree?


If you need to remove a tree from your property, the safest way to do so is to hire a tree service. A professional tree service can remove your tree safely, with the right tools and equipment. In some cases, tree removal requires the use of a crane. For instance, if you have a large tree in a small yard, a crane can help to remove the tree without damaging the area around the tree. Many tree removal services utilize cranes for tree removal. There are many reasons why you might need a crane to remove a tree from your yard.

A tree in a cramped location

The cranes that tree services use for tree removal are mobile, so if a tree is in a cramped, hard-to-reach location, a mobile crane may be necessary for the tree's removal. The crane operator can maneuver the crane into a safe location near the tree for easy removal.  

A tree with a dangerous lean

When a tree has a lean that might cause it to fall onto a structure, yard, or public area after it is cut, then a crane must be used to lift each cut piece away from the area.

A tree very close to a house or structure

Cutting a tree down next to a house or structure risks damaging the house or structure as the cut branches and trunk fall to the ground. A tree service can haul each piece of a tree away after its removal.

A tree dangerously close to power lines

A tree service can also use a crane to carefully remove the uppermost branches of a tree that is growing too close to power lines. The use of a crane can help to keep each cut branch away from power lines.

A weak and brittle tree

Sick or diseased trees become rotten and weak over time. Removing such a tree is dangerous since the brittle pieces may collapse and fall without warning. Using a crane allows a tree service to stabilize each cut piece of the tree before lowering it to the ground.

A tree that has fallen onto a structure

The safest and fastest way to remove a tree that has fallen onto a house or structure is via a crane. Using a crane to lift a tree off a building is safe and helps minimize the damage to a structure during the removal process.
