Removing large trees is hard. It is impossible to do it alone, and the process is dangerous. Because of the tree’s size, it is easy to lose control over the equipment or the trajectory of the trunk. It can damage buildings, vehicles, and people too. Keep it safe and hire professional help!

Large trees can reach up to 40 feet. Their trunk can weigh thousands of pounds, and their branches are long and heavy. Large trees have big roots too, which dig up 20 feet into the ground.
Large trees can enrich your property. They not only create shade or produce fruit, but clean the air, provide shelter for many birds and other small animals, and even serve as a building material. Their roots absorb a lot of water and keep the ground steady, stopping landslides caused by heavy rain.
If you are not taking good care of your large trees, they might become dangerous and start causing hazards. For example, if you plant them too close to your house or any other building, the roots might cause cracks in the foundation, affecting the building’s stability.
Heavy branches might fall, especially during storms. If they fall on your house, they will break your front porch, roof, and even walls. Any nearby vehicles might also be in the line of fire. One strong wind and a large branch might cost you thousands of dollars. Not to mention the danger they are to humans. Many people suffered injuries or died because they got hit by a heavy branch from a large tree.
