Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help decide whether a tree should be removed. Removal is recommended when the tree is dead or dying.

  • Considered an unacceptable risk

  • Causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through pruning

  • Crowding and causing harm to other, more desirable trees

  • To be replaced by a more suitable specimen

  • Located in an area where new construction requires removal
