Crane Tree Removal Service Is Safer For Hazardous Conditions | Aledo, TX

As part of our comprehensive tree removal services, S&P Tree Service offers a high-tech solution to trees that are difficult to access. Structurally sound trees in open areas are easy to remove. But what about trees damaged from pest infestations and disease or lightning strikes? In these scenarios, crane tree removal service is often the best solution. Hazardous trees are often too dangerous to climb, and they can fail unexpectedly, putting anyone in the area at risk. These trees are likely to fall apart during the removal process, which can cause damage to the landscaping on your property. Fortunately, there’s a better way to take care of unsound trees in a safe, effective manner.

Why Use Cranes to Remove Problematic Trees?

When you call the local tree guy, you may expect them to show up with ladders, chainsaws and pruners. However, it sometimes takes more than the typical equipment to remove problem trees. If you have trees with roots growing under sidewalks or between structures on your property, it may prove more difficult to remove them.

The right tools and equipment are always the key to completing a job safely, efficiently and effectively for our customers. That’s why we are proud to offer crane tree removal services to our customers.

There are many ways cranes can assist in the removal of very large or dangerously positioned trees. Here are just some of the benefits of using cranes to remove dead, dying or diseased trees that pose safety and health issues:

  • Taller reach than ladders alone
  • Provide access to inaccessible areas
  • Increased safety
  • Reduce the time needed to remove trees
  • Many other advantages

The next time you schedule tree service, don’t be surprised to see a crane pull up to your house to prevent injury and property damage. Our crane tree removal service can provide added safety to reduce potential liabilities and risks.

Ideal for Large Trees in Tight Areas

If a tree is too close to homes, roads or other structures, it isn’t always possible to remove it manually. That’s where cranes come in handy. Cranes fit into tight areas and come equipped with tools to make tree removal safer than ever before. For one thing, the tree never has to fall. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about branches landing on vehicles, homes or people.

This allows our team to lift removed branches and other tree parts and slowly lower them to a drop zone. Once the crane reaches a safe location, our crew can use a woodchipper and other equipment to convert the damaged tree into mulch for removal or reuse on the property.

We find that crane tree removal service often goes as quickly as traditional tree removal thanks to our careful planning and peerless execution.

Reduces Risks of Accidents and Hazards

Safety is always a priority when it comes to professional tree removal. We can remove a tree safely, minimizing the likelihood of mishaps using a crane. Hazardous trees can be unpredictable. That’s why we take every precaution to keep our climbers out of harm’s way. Specially trained crane arborists know how to direct the crane operator into optimal positions to efficiently remove branches one at a time before finally removing the trunk.

If you have a tree on your property that’s infested by pests, storm damaged or that simply poses a danger, partner with S&P Tree Service to remove it in the safest possible way. Our crane tree removal service can eliminate the risk of unintended damage.

While we have traditional removal services where climbers get into the tree to remove each branch, that won’t always work for trees with extensive canopies in urban areas with lots of pedestrians. Instead, crane tree removal services allow us to put the operator in an enclosed basket, giving them access to properly evaluate each branch before positioning ropes to lower cut branches safely to the ground.

Cranes are simply a safer solution when it comes to removing unsound trees. Also, dry, dead branches are likely to fall apart upon removal. Using ropes to lower them to the ground prevents hazards from injuring anyone in the area.

It takes special training and experience to perform this type of service. However, it’s a safe alternative and we’re happy to offer it to our customers.

Removing Trees with a Crane Can Be Very Efficient

Crane tree removal service can be a laborious project, but we offer efficient ways to get the job done and beautify your property. It takes time to properly set up and position the crane to safely remove a damaged tree. However, the process is well worth the extra effort. It’s important that each member of the crew knows their role before work begins. We’ll also carefully coordinate with you on the scheduling and obtain any permits well in advance of the service appointment.

The climber and crane operator communicate via hand signals, radio headsets and other means. They discussed the weight of each section, where to position the ropes and whether to use a chainsaw or cutting tools attached to the crane to remove the tree piece by piece.

Despite the extra effort, we love a good challenge. That’s why we excel at crane tree removal services. S&P Tree Service will walk you through the plan and handle all of the setup and preparation needed to make the job go smoothly. Once we’re in position, the actual work of removing the tree tends to go quickly. Our experienced crew works like a finely tuned instrument to quickly and safely remove large branches in a systematic and orderly fashion. They also remain on the lookout for any unauthorized pedestrians who may wander into the cordoned-off area.
