Emergency Tree Removal in Atlanta
When seasonal storms hit Atlanta and the surrounding areas, your yard can suddenly seem a lot less safe and stable than it was the day before. It can be difficult and expensive to find tree services during natural disasters, but if one or more of your trees has become unstable or has fallen down; these are the very times that you most need fast and reliable emergency tree removal services. At 404-CUT-TREE we provide rapid assessment and response to after-hours tree emergencies Alpharetta, Atlanta, Brookhaven, Decatur, Duluth, Dunwoody, Johns Creek, Marietta, Norcross, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Tucker and the nearby north metro area. During emergencies, we prioritize responses for repeat customers. We follow the physician’s creed: do no further damage to the tree (or the house!) than it has already experienced. We are committed to safety in every situation, no matter how heavy or complex the job: we undertake safe work practices to ensure that our employees and our customers are as well-protected as possible under all kinds of emergency conditions.
We are very experienced in performing the most sophisticated tree removals. Our caravan of big yellow trucks has traveled to numerous storms in the metro Atlanta area. Sometimes it is difficult to find a tree service during a natural disaster, but we always go and we give priority treatment to previous customers.
If you have an after-hours tree emergency, please call the regular office telephone number. An operator answers our phone 24 x 7. Please let the operator know that this is an emergency and whether you are an existing customer. In an emergency, the operator will locate one of our arborists who will call you. We charge $100 to come out after hours. This will be credited back if you hire our company to perform the needed tree service. After our arborist assesses the job and identifies the equipment and skills required, we will dispatch workers after hours if necessary.
Emergency Tree Removal.It’s important to know that our workers are paid more for after hours work and for dangerous work. And we charge more in these instances. We will try to craft the most economical safe solution for you. Frequently the tree can be stabilized with a small crew after hours, then cleaned up the following day. Thus emergency rates are minimized; and you pay normal rates for the daytime work. Tree Removal Roswell
Why this is not a DIY job
A major DIY (do-it-yourself) home and garden TV channel offers this advice: “Chainsaws can be … extremely dangerous. If a large tree needs to be (trimmed), consult a tree removal arborist.”
A national arboretum website advises, “…with fallen and damaged trees…a professional should be hired. (They) are properly equipped. The pruning of large trees can be dangerous and should not be taken lightly.”
A consumer group reminds you that tree work near power lines requires specific training and minimum separation. Electrocution is a bona fide danger. TREE BRANCHES CAN CONDUCT ELECTRICITY. It’s a cause of injury and death among DIY tree removers. Tree Service Atlanta
The equipment and manpower we assign
Big yellow trucks.
You can’t miss us! We operate one of the largest tree service fleets in Atlanta. They are a visible reminder of our large, efficient operation. People frequently say that we’re one of the most productive operations they’ve ever seen. We do focus on being safe and effective. The faster we work, the more affordable we are to you.
We bring small tractors to nearly every job. They’ve nearly eliminated back injuries, and they make quick work of tree removal. We also carry plywood with every tractor so that we protect your yard. It’s not good enough to remove the tree for a fair price, and leave your yard a mess.
Sometimes the safest and most effective way to remove a tree is from above. But it can be disconcerting to see a 2 ton log dangling from a cable above your roof! That’s why it’s important to select a tree service with the requisite experience to determine whether a crane is necessary, and if it is, to size it correctly (and conservatively.) The money saved by specifying a smaller than necessary crane will be forgotten after the crane ends up tipping over on your home! We maintain good working relationships with experienced crane operators of well-maintained, safe cranes.
We don’t ‘chase’ storm work, but we do prioritize repeat customers who have tree issues caused by storms. Our crews are trained to work safely in a variety of emergency conditions.
Safe work practices.
The tree industry has developed and published safe work practice standards known as ANSI Z133.1-2006 (American National Standard for Arboricultural Operations – Safety Requirements). Tree crews conforming to this standard “stand out” from the many that don’t with their use of personal protective equipment and work practices. 404-CUT-TREE trains and requires all personnel to work in conformance with Z-133.
The Old Fashioned Way.
Tree Removal. Often the situation doesn’t permit the use of labor saving technology, and the tree must be brought down with ropes and tackle. When climbing and roping equipment is tested, that’s when your tree service’s professional work practices pay off. Clean, safe, well maintained equipment, operated safely minimize damage to your property.
