Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Removal in Newport Delaware

As a tree care company, our staff gets a lot of questions from homeowners about tree removal in Newport Delaware and surrounding neighborhoods. Our expert answers three of the most common questions below.

Does My Tree Removal Contractor Need to be Insured?

Tree removal is dangerous, even for tree care professionals. Our tree care specialists are experienced and trained to work safely, but accidents can happen. Being licensed and insured offers protection for us as well as our customers. Without insurance, if an accident occurred that involved injury or damage to property, the homeowner could be held liable for the costs. So we highly recommend that all tree care contractors you hire be licensed and insured.

Does Tree Removal Include Removing the Stump?

Tree stump removal can be included in your tree removal services. Typically this is an additional service that you can choose. Stump removal is advisable because tree stumps can cause hazards in a landscape. These hazards include

  • Tripping hazards for people
  • Insect infestation that could spread to surrounding trees or habitations
  • Regrowth of the tree

Tree stumps can also make landscaping and yard work, like mowing, more difficult.

How Can I Know if My Tree Needs to be Removed?

Dead or dying trees typically show some outward signs. Some of these are

  • Fungal growth on the trunk or base of the tree
  • Failure to leaf in spring
  • Dead branches
  • Tree dieback
  • Heavy insect presence

Sometimes the signs are less clear. An arborist can inspect a tree and find that there are problems that make the tree vulnerable to falling. Regular inspections by the homeowner and also professionals is recommended so that problems are caught early enough to save the tree. However, if the tree is deemed a risk, tree removal may be necessary.
