Trees need to be pruned, cut or removed for various reasons – from wanting to create space in your garden to removing a tree whose roots are dangerously close to the foundation of your house, or trimming the branches of one that are pushing into the walls of your property. These are delicate situations that should be handled with the required diligence – call in the pros at HomeGenie to advise you of the correct course of action. After all, cutting down a big tree is a complicated matter – you need to start with trimming the branches at the top, move on to cutting the trunk into pieces, and then dig around the base to loosen the roots and then extract the stump. The size, condition and location of the tree are also very important factors that must be considered while cutting down trees. This is where the expertise of professional tree surgeons comes in – tree removal is not just about getting rid of the tree, it is also about making sure that there is no collateral damage to your home and the property surrounding it. Since this is a survey-based service, our team will be happy to visit the site and suggest a course of action as well as the costs involved before carrying out the procedure, free of cost. Very often, oversized or decaying trees may pose a threat to your house and property, especially after a storm or any other weather-related event. In such cases, HomeGenie recognizes the urgency of the situation and offers Emergency and Same Day services for immediate resolution of the problem. In our Emergency service, a team will arrive to cut, trim or grind the tree within two hours of you placing a booking with us, at an extra cost.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.What is the common process of cutting trees and removing stumps?

  • Survey and estimate the labor hours and tools required to cut and remove the tree.
  • Once approved, the team and equipment is assembled and briefed.
  • Reach the site on the date of cutting with the right staff and equipment.
  • Plan the cutting of the tree, including which side it will likely fall.
  • Prune the major trunks especially the ones close to any structures.
  • If required, put up scaffolding to reach the top of a tall tree.
  • Identify diseases, if any, on the tree and inform the owner.
  • Cut the tree with the required tools keeping everyone’s safety in mind.
  • Dump into municipality approved garbage areas.

Q.What safety precautions should be taken while cutting large trees?

  • Wear the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Q.Is it better to grind a tree stump or completely remove it from its roots?

This is a purely personal decision, and sometimes the decision depends on the situation. Grinding is much more efficient than tree stump removal, however, it leaves the tree's roots behind. If the stump is large, the chip pile produced can also be quite large, but the chips can be used as mulch for other plants in your landscape.
