There are many factors to think about before deciding to hire a local tree removal company nearby.

- Cost of Tree Removal in West Hollywood
TYPES OF TREE REMOVAL
One thing that you should consider before removing a tree is the type of tree it is. Some types of trees are undesirable for many different reasons.
- Some of the reasons you may not want a tree include:
- Drops Debris in Your Yard
- Roots Damage Your Yard or Pavement
- Becomes Infested with Insects or Disease
- Takes Up Too Much Space
Other tree species are desirable because you like the way they make your yard look. These trees can be harder to get rid of.
You may want to keep fruit trees, such as Lime trees, kumquat trees, or plum trees because they provide you with juicy fresh fruit that you enjoy. However, if the tree is posing a significant hazard it is important to have an arborist evaluate the risk. We also offer Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning Services if you want to keep your trees.

THREE HAZARD RISKS
Depending on the amount of risk associated with a tree, you may need to hire a professional for emergency tree removal. Other times the risk is not severe enough to warrant an emergency, but the hazard is sufficient enough that the tree must be removed sooner rather than later.
A good rule of thumb is that a tree should be removed if 50% or more of the tree is damaged or if there is significant damage to the main trunk.
Sometimes a tree can continue to grow even if the trunk has been hollowed out due to damage, decay, disease or other contributing factors. If the trunk is severely hollowed out, then the tree could be a hazard and should be removed.
Another common hazard that trees pose comes from the limbs themselves. Dying or damaged limbs should always be removed if they are at risk of falling off, especially near a structure, a walkway, or above power lines.
Sometimes there is so much damage to limbs that the entire tree has to be removed. If too many limbs are damaged or if the damage is mostly contained to one side of the tree, the risk is higher.
If a tree is leaning it is at a much higher risk of falling and should be evaluated by an arborist. It is much better to be safe and get a tree evaluated than risk damage to your house or injury to yourself or someone else. At the very least, an evaluation can free you of the fear of a possible injury or of a lawsuit due to an injury to another person or their property because of your negligence.
