Tree Removal Emergencies in Lafayette

The reasons for emergency tree removal services can be divided into two categories: a safety hazard or time-sensitive tree removal.

Safety Hazards

A tree damaged by a storm: storms can happen in any season, causing many different kinds of damage. Often when a tree is old, structurally weak, or the storm is especially severe, it can easily fall or crack. Strong winds can break off branches or blow entire trees over, heavy snows can weigh down branches until they crack, and lightning can split trunks, causing them to lean or fall. In these cases, generally the entire tree or the fallen branches must be cut up and removed.

A diseased, declining, or dead tree poses a threat to people/property: Emergency tree removal is also necessary as a preventative measure. If a tree is split, has cracked branches, or is leaning at more than a 15-degree angle, it should be removed to prevent damage to property or humans.

Time-sensitive tree removal

  • Trees, limbs, or stumps are jeopardizing a construction schedule.
  • Dying trees, hanging limbs, or unsightly stumps are harming a property sale, open house, or close on a property.
  • An insurance company or city official has mandated an immediate tree removal on your property.
  • A commercial property needs a tree to be removed outside of business hours.

Emergency Prevention

There are several ways that you can protect your trees and prevent common safety hazards resulting from storms and old age.

  • Mulching: If your area has many severe seasonal storms, the root systems of your trees could be compromised. To give your trees an extra layer of protection from high winds, you can cover the base of the tree with mulch. It will help keep your tree rooted firmly.
  • Pruning: Trees with dense foliage obstruct more wind and are much more likely to break than those with fewer leaves and branches. By pruning your tree, you can reduce the risk of it suffering damage during storms. Professionals can prune the trees to reduce the drag they create, protecting them and you, from damage.
  • Bracing/Cabling: For young trees with developing root systems or established trees with structural issues, you can prop, brace, or cable the tree to help it withstand strong winds and severe storms.
