Why You Should Remove A Tree With A Crane

Do you have an especially large tree on your property that you need to remove? Is there a tree marked for removal but it is very close to your house, someone else's house, or a power line? Depending on your situation, you might not want to just start swinging with an ax and hope for the best. For some tree removals, you may need to go above and beyond and hire a crane company to help you. Here's why you should reach out to a tree removal crane service.

Avoid Knocking Over Power Lines

If you have a large tree that is right near a utility pole, it could be very dangerous and irresponsible to try and remove the tree without professional help. If the tree comes into contact with a power line, that could be a safety hazard for anyone standing nearby. You could also be responsible for knocking out power for your whole neighborhood. If it's bad enough, you could even face fines or legal trouble. A crane can ensure the tree only moves in the direction you want it to go.

More Control Means More Safety

When you use a crane to remove a tree, you gain more control as just described. But in addition to being able to guide the tree in a certain direction, you can also ensure the tree moves down very slowly. Other tree removal methods might have the tree falling faster than expected and that could prove to be a safety hazard for people on the ground.

Get It Down Quickly

"Quickly" in this case does not mean how fast the tree is going to fall but how long the crane is going to be on your property. A crane can be quite efficient at getting a tree removed for you and then you can move on to the next step of your project or get back to your family. If you try to remove a tree on your own, you might end up losing your entire day or weekend.

Avoid Damage to Your Landscaping 

If a tree does suddenly fall while you are trying to remove it, it's not just people that might be in trouble. A tree that falls too fast and too hard might damage your landscaping. A tree that falls in an unexpected way may cause damage to your house or to the next house over.
