Poorly Placed, Damaged, and Diseased Trees Require Action

If you have a tree that is showing signs of failure, removal may be the best option. A dead or dying tree on your property will quickly draw pests and may develop dangerous fungi. Soon, it could start dropping heavy branches. Summer tree removal offers challenges and benefits, depending on your situation.

Pros of Summer Tree Removal

Spring rains can leave soil soggy and unstable. In the full heat of summer, tree removal will be less difficult. Bucket trucks and ladders will be easier to place and secure. Your arborist will also be able to determine which branches are free of leaves and at greatest risk of infestation.

If the tree is not infested with mold or fungi, it may be possible to save the wood for burning. High summer is an ideal time to dry firewood; a combination of low humidity and high ambient temperatures may provide you with an ideal supply of logs!

When the soil is dry, it’s also easier to grind out the stump left at the end of your tree removal process. While the stump is being ground out, you can study any problem roots that are too close to sidewalks, driveways, and foundations.

Cons of Taking Out a Tree in Summer

Working in the heat is always dangerous. Be aware that your tree professional will need to start early and will require many water breaks. Tools may also need breaks to cool down if the ambient temperature is very hot.

Summer tree removal can also be messy. A bare tree branch can fall to the ground without leaving too much clutter, but a tree branch loaded with leaves, seed pods, or fruit can leave a lot of yard waste behind.

If your tree has been dying for a while, it may be a home to stinging insects. These insects will be most active in the heat of summer. Your arborist can help you determine whether you need to reach out to a beekeeper or contact a pest removal company.

Should you find out that your tree has become a home to hornets or wasps, you’ll need to keep an eye out for new nests. Many insects are territorial; once the tree is gone, these insects may come back next year and make a home in your outbuildings or attic.
