What Should You Do When You Have a Tree Emergency?

When dealing with a tree emergency, it's important to get yourself, your family, and other pedestrians away from the danger area as soon as possible. Prioritizing your safety is essential, as large trees can cause a lot of damage and put you in harm's way.

Once you've moved yourself to safety, there are a few critical steps you can take to streamline the tree removal process and make the aftermath of the incident stress-free:

  • Assess the situation to determine if there could be other immediate risks, like downed power lines, sparking electrical wires, or structural damage to your home.
  • Contact emergency services and a licensed arborist to help clear the area.
  • Document the damage by taking photos and videos. This can help with your insurance claims, assist cleanup teams, and ensure no damage is overlooked.
  • Prepare the area for cleanup. Avoid touching branches or debris, but you can move your vehicles and personal belongings if they're unaffected to help streamline the process.

Can You Prevent Tree Emergencies?

Although some tree emergencies can occur unexpectedly due to storms, high winds, or lightning, many problems can be avoided through proactive tree maintenance. Through regular inspections, seasonal pruning, and proper tree care, diseases, pest infestations, structural defects, or unnatural decay can be identified and resolved.

Regular pruning and treatments like mulching, fertilization, and occasional watering can promote good tree health and improve robustness. When issues can be detected early, they can often be avoided entirely, saving you the headache of property damage and losing or replacing a tree.

When to Contact an Emergency Tree Service

Emergency tree removal becomes necessary under several circumstances, each posing its own risks and requiring immediate attention.

Here are common situations that might call for our emergency services:

  • Fallen tree removal: Heavy storms, snowfall, or diseased roots can cause trees to fall unexpectedly, potentially damaging property, obstructing roadways, or posing safety risks.
  • Emergency branch removal: Overhanging branches that threaten to fall on homes, vehicles, or power lines require urgent removal to prevent damage and ensure safety.
  • Disease or infestation: Trees weakened by disease or pest infestations can pose a sudden risk of falling or losing large branches, necessitating immediate removal.
  • Tree leaning towards structures: A tree that’s begun to lean perilously close to a house, garage, or other structures could collapse without warning, making swift removal essential.
  • Root problems: Trees with visibly damaged or exposed roots could signify instability and an increased risk of toppling over, calling for emergency evaluation and possible removal.
  • Blocking construction or landscaping projects: Emergency removal of trees is sometimes necessary to clear the way for time-sensitive construction or landscaping projects.
  • Interference with utility lines: Trees that grow too close to power lines or interrupt utility services must be dealt with promptly to avoid service disruptions and risks of fire or electrocution.
  • Fire damage: Trees damaged by fire may appear stable but often have compromised structural integrity, requiring immediate assessment and removal to ensure safety.
  • Cracked trunks: Trunks that show significant cracks or splits can suddenly break, making it crucial to remove the tree before it collapses.

When you’re experiencing any of these issues with your trees, we encourage you to get in touch with our company as soon as possible.

How Long Do Emergency Tree Removals Take?

Depending on the size of the tree and the scale of damage or risk, emergency tree removals can take anywhere from a few hours to an entire day or more. Small trees with minimal damage can usually be safely removed in a few hours by professional arborists.

However, large trees or those severely damaged by storms, diseases, and fire can require more time to remove safely. Significant tree removals may require thorough assessments, safety planning, establishing a perimeter, cutting the tree down in sections, chipping limbs and branches, and cleaning up debris.

Storm Damage Control and Assessment

Storms can cause serious damage to trees and fallen or significantly damaged trees may threaten your property and your safety. Damaged trees require professional assessment and may need to be removed by experienced arborists to ensure the safety of your residential home or commercial enterprise.

Does Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Emergency Tree Removals?

Many homeowner’s insurance policies cover emergency tree removals, but they have limitations and conditions that can impact your ability to file a claim successfully. For instance, trees that fall due to covered risks and damage an insured structure can usually be covered, with the insurance provider paying for the removal of the tree up to the policy’s coverage limits. However, if the fallen tree was rotted, neglected, or dead and hadn’t been removed, your insurers may deny your claim.

When trees fall and are considered preventable, they’re often classified as part of the homeowner’s responsibility. However, if a tree falls in your yard but doesn’t cause structural damage, it likely won’t be covered under your policy. It’s essential to thoroughly review your policy details and consult your insurance provider as soon as possible to understand the type of coverage you have for emergency tree removal.
