Spring, summer and autumn are always the most active time of the year for gardeners. It’s a time for seeding and mowing lawns, planting, trimming and weeding, and for getting stuck into all those landscaping projects you dreamed about tackling during the winter. It’s also the perfect time to get any pesky trees or tree stumps lurking in your garden.
Not that we don’t love our trees, of course! In fact, if you’re like most Kiwis, you probably love your trees to bits. Sometimes, however, a tree can become a problem – when that happens, it’s best to make quick work of removing it.
Tree and stump removal – some considerations
Of course, there are a number of things to consider when determining whether it’s necessary to remove a tree. The most obvious is the health of the tree – is it sick, dying or already dead? Does it have a disease that it could pass to other trees? If yes, then it may be time to get rid of it.
Also, if any tree on your property is in danger of falling over, then it’s best to get it removed as quickly as possible. A hazardous tree can cause significant damage to both property and people – it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
