Consider the Advantages and Disadvantages of Summer Tree Removal

If winter storms or spring winds have damaged trees on your property, you may not be aware of it until summer. If you study your trees and notice many bare branches in a canopy or spot those that are dead or dying, you need to consider the advantages and disadvantages of removing a tree during summer and speak with a licensed arborist.

Pros of Summer Tree Removal

Summertime is when trees will have all their leaves. At this time, you will be able to truly assess the health of the tree. If it’s infected or infested, the leaves will give you a great deal of information about the pest or fungi that has attacked it.

Because insects are most active this time of year, they will be more visible during the tree removal process. Arborists will be able to see which insects are causing trouble and apply targeted pest control measures to reduce their spread to other trees and plants on your property.

Cleanup after tree removal during the summer is also easier due to the drier conditions. The ground is wet or frozen during other seasons of the year, and this can complicate the cleaning process because it will make it difficult for arborists to remove debris and maneuver equipment.

Summer tree removal is much safer. This is because arborists will not have to contend with any adverse weather conditions, such as snow or ice, that can increase the instances of injuries and accidents.

Cons of Summer Tree Removal

Summer breezes can make for a lot of movement in the canopy of a tree, especially if there are branches that still have a lot of leaves. Leaves add wind resistance, and wind will move those branches. Your arborist may need to stop their tree removal process if the wind is strong enough to push branches around.

Anyone working in the heat of summer needs to take care to stay safe. Additionally, tools used in tree removal may need time to cool down, especially if they’re working in the direct sun and the overall temperature is quite high.

Finally, folks want to be able to get out and enjoy the summer when the sun is out! If you have a tree that needs to be removed and it’s anywhere near a sidewalk or an alleyway, your tree removal professional may need to get permission to block the street or slow traffic for a time.

Considering the pros and cons of removing trees in the summer and working with a licensed arborist will put you in the best position to ensure success. If you need summer tree removal in Hayward, CA, call our professionals at ArborTech Inc. for help.
