Attention Lake Forest! Don’t Call Another Tree Removal Service Provider Before You Read This!
Tree removal may sound uncomplicated, after all you just need a chainsaw, but in reality it is serious business that needs to be planned ahead for. In fact you would even need to inform the the Lake Forest authorities in some cases and when dealing with certain species of trees. Read on to know more details regarding this.
In case you are not aware in Lake Forest, you are not allowed to take down any variation of the Quercus (oak), Schinus (pepper), and Platanus (sycamore) trees without getting a permit from Lake Forest’s Planning Services Division first.
You may visit the city’s official website for more information but basically, any oak tree kind measuring twenty five (25) inches or larger in circumference or any pepper and (sycamore) tree variety that measures (50) inches or larger requires you to fill in and submit the Specimen Tree Removal Permit to the city’s Planning Services Division.
Why Call a Tree Service Company and not Do Your Tree and Stump Removal Job Yourself
To further assert that tree removal is not a piece of cake, accidents are not uncommon so we strongly advise not to do the tree removal yourself especially when you are to deal with bigger trees. We have heard cases of DIYers who got into serious trouble by not following safety procedures when removing a tree such as using spikes when climbing the tree, wearing proper gears, or even attempting to take down a huge tree on their own.
To this we repeat, it is simply not worth it to attempt tree removal yourself. It is easy to get hurt or permanently damage a tree, yourself, or other people if any mistakes are made so don’t even do it “just this time”. Instead call a professional tree service company to help you with tree removal in Lake Forest CA.
If you choose Lake Forest Tree Services Pro we can verify if you need a tree removal permit and even obtain it for you.
How to Find a Good Tree Removal Company in Lake Forest, CA
It’s paramount that you deal with an experienced tree service company when removing a tree. Here’s why.
Many new tree service businesses when starting out charge less than their established competitors, which is great if you are the client. However, in order to charge less and survive they skip on essentials like business insurance.
When dealing with a potentially dangerous task of tree removal, an uninsured tree removal service can be a recipe for disaster. Why, because if any of the crew members of the tree service provider gets injured wile on your property you’ll be liable.
On the other hand having business insurance doesn’t guarantee that professionalism because nothing trumps experience when it comes to tree removal. It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Finding a reliable tree service company in Lake Forest CA shouldn’t be so hard.
A list of five essential questions to ask every service provider when looking for a tree removal service:
