All About Tree Removals & Stump Removals

Tree Removals

When it comes to getting rid of trees on your property, there are a few things you need to know. First, there are benefits to both tree removal and stump removal. Second, hiring a professional is always the best option – they have the experience and knowledge necessary to get the job done quickly and safely. Finally, what should you expect from a professional tree removal service?

In this blog, we’ll cover some of the key points you should know if you’ve got a troublesome tree in your garden.

Why you might need a tree removal

There are a number of different reasons that you might need to make use of a tree removal service, such as a dead or dying tree, which can cause more problems if left untreated as they can be prone to falling, causing damage to properties or vehicles, etc.

Your tree could be crowding out other plants in your garden, preventing them from growing and as a result, you might want it and its stump removed to save your other plants.

If you are planning on doing some construction work around your property, such as an extension or adding a conservatory, then a tree in your garden could cause problems and give you a good reason to remove it.

A much more simple reason to have a tree removed is that it might simply be blocking a view, and having it removed might improve the view from your windows.

In any case, when making use of tree removal services, it’s important to consider a proper stump removal service too, as leaving a stump in the ground can cause problems later on.

No matter what your reasons are for wanting to remove a tree, it’s important that you only use the services of a professional company that will be able to do the job quickly, efficiently and without any damage to your property.

What to expect from a tree removal service

While tree removals are quite straightforward, there are a few things you should expect, and prepare for.

First and foremost, expect the process to be safe. Tree removal is inherently dangerous work, so you want to make sure that the company you hire takes safety seriously. Their workers should be properly trained and equipped with the right safety gear, and they should have a solid safety plan in place for every job.

Second, expect the job to be done right. This means that the tree will be completely removed, including the roots, and the area will be left clean and level. If there are any underground utilities in the area, the tree removal company should know how to work around them without damaging them.

Finally, expect to pay a fair price. The price will vary depending on the size and location of the tree, but you should get a few estimates before hiring a company so you have an idea of what the going rate is. Once you’ve found a company you’re comfortable with, get everything in writing so there are no surprises later on.

If you are considering having a tree removed, but decide against it, you may be better suited to a tree pruning service. We have another blog if you want to learn more about tree pruning.

Stump Removals

When removing trees, you may be left with a stump. Stump removal is a whole other process that not all tree removal services offer. As such, it is important to ask your tree surgeon whether they offer stump grinding or complete removal of the stump before you hire them. Fortunately, WGS Tree Services are experts at dealing with tree stumps by grinding out the root ball, preventing the tree from growing further. It isn’t always necessary to remove all leading roots and so it is usually avoided as it is very timely.

Tree Grinding

Why do you need a stump removing

Tree stumps are often just as troublesome as the tree when left alone, and they can cause a number of problems. For one thing, they can be unsightly. They can also attract pests and diseases, which can then spread to other trees and plants in your yard. In addition, tree stumps can make it difficult to mow your lawn or do any other type of yard work.

One of the most costly problems with tree stumps are when the roots grow too close to a property or building, causing the roots to press on the foundations or walls of a building and cause damage, which can ultimately result in the building being unsafe.

The benefits of stump removal

While stump removal may seem like an unnecessary expense, it actually has a number of benefits. First, it will make your yard look neater and more manicured. Second, it will allow you to mow your lawn more easily and do other yard work without having to worry about tripping over a tree stump. Third, it will prevent pests and diseases from spreading to other trees and plants in your yard. Finally, it will make your yard safer for people to walk around in.


Hiring a professional tree removal service is the best way to ensure that your tree or stump is removed safely and properly. They will be able to take care of everything from removing the tree, to stump grinding, to leaving your yard clean and level. Before hiring a company, be sure to ask about their safety procedures, as well as what services they offer.
