Do you have a dead or dying tree on your property? If so, you should think of tree removal as your first mode of action if the tree is definitely not worth saving or will not become healthy again. That's a tough call to make unless you're a professional tree trimmer or tree removal or tree care specialist, however.

Here are things you should do if you have a dead or dying tree on your property.

Call a tree removal specialist

A tree removal specialist is an expert in tree removal and also tree care. You should call this professional to make sure that your tree truly is dead or dying, and if it's not, it may be worth keeping it where it is in your yard. If the tree is dying, then your tree specialist will let you know if the tree can be saved and what to do. If the tree is dead, your tree removal specialist will give you a few options, including leaving the tree alone, limbing and cutting down the tree, and removing the tree entirely.

Have the tree taken care of

Whatever you decide to do with your dead or dying tree, make sure that the tree will not be a nuisance to your property or others around you if you leave it alone or choose to cut the tree down. Tree removal experts have the experience, labor help, and equipment to safely remove a tree once it has been scheduled for removal. Your tree can be taken down for a set price or you can be charged by the hour or day. Cleanup may be extra, so ask your tree removal specialist what is included in tree removal before you have your tree taken out.

Decide what to do with what's left

Do you want to keep the limbs and logs for firewood or have the wood chipped for mulch? Are you going to take the stump out? Are you planning on doing anything with the area where the tree used to be? Are you simply going to fence off the dead or dying tree to protect the area? Decide what to do after your tree is diagnosed and taken care of so you can safely use your yard again.
