Lopping back the trees

Lopping back the trees

I really like how shady our yard is, but I'm not so excited about cleaning up everything that drops off the trees. I can't pick the fruit from the very top of the trees, so it rots and falls to the ground, and then it attracts mice and birds unless I clean it up straight away. I'm getting the trees all lopped back so I can get a break from all the cleaning up all this fallen fruit. This blog is all about how to get your backyard fruit trees lopped so that you don't have to clean up as much fallen fruit.

Tree Removal: Hazardous Trees and Cost

Kenneth Kim

When it comes to tree removal on your property, it is generally agreed that this should not be among the normal do-it-yourself tasks for your property and lawn maintenance. Saving some money is not worth risking your life and that of your dear ones by performing tasks that are better left for the professionals. As a home owner, you should let tree removal be done by trained and qualified individuals to avoid risking your property and that of your neighbours.

But What if it's an Accident?

What do you do when a tree falls on your property or house? You should be quick in contacting your tree removal service providers. Remember that emergency services are more expensive because they require the work to be done quickly and in riskier circumstances. Always have your trees regularly monitored for early signs of danger. For example, dangerously leaning trees, those with loose branches and the ones on loose grounds should be removed as early as possible. You should also not keep a tree very close to your house. Remember that the roots of the tree can have dire consequences on your house floor and, eventually, walls. These are potential hazards and liabilities.


The manner and the cost of removing the tree will differ depending on several factors. Among the most important factors for tree removal services include the following:

  • The height of the tree. Small sizes of trees usually attract less complicated removal methods and therefore cost much less. You should also ask your service provider on the discounts that apply in your case because most of them have these niceties. You should also understand that these removers have to pay for licenses and insurance. In this sense, if the price quoted is way too low, look elsewhere because there are chances that your provider is not licensed or insured.
  • The other nearby risks and hazards. The manner and cost of your tree removal service will also be determined by the context of the tree to be removed. For example, if the tree is near power lines, busy roads or railways, it will be more difficult for the removers to do their work. In this way, it will attract higher costs. For this case, you may need to have it trimmed or pruned to reduce the risks and attract cheaper services.

Make sure that your lawn is cleaned after all the risky trees are removed. Dispose the leftover wood according to the local waste disposal regulations.
