Fallen Trees and Other Tree Emergencies in Los AngelesIt can only take a few moments for an earthquake, high winds, or a lightning strike to damage or knock down a tree that’s stood tall for hundreds of years. Fallen trees create all kinds of headaches for Los Angeles homeowners. If you need to have a fallen tree removed from your property, call Gutierrez & Sons Landscaping without delay. We’ve been providing expert emergency tree services to LA homeowners for over 30 years.

When a tree falls, it has the potential to cause massive property damage as well as severe, even fatal, personal injuries. Even if it doesn’t cause any damage on the way down, a fallen tree is still a nuisance and hazard. It can affect the look and appearance of your property, limit your ability to use your property, spread disease, and create a fire danger. A fallen tree is a problem that needs to be addressed quickly, efficiently, and safely.

Emergency Tree Removal is a Job Best Left to Professionals

Removing a fallen tree is definitely not a DIY project. It requires experience and careful planning. A tree can weigh several tons. Axes, saws, and other potentially dangerous tools and equipment are needed for the removal process. If the tree hasn’t fallen all the way, ladders and lifts may be required to reach the upper branches. Mistakes can result in serious injury and could result in further damage.

Safety is a big factor when it comes to removing a fallen tree. It’s necessary to examine the property to assess the situation before starting the project. This allows the tree removal professional to devise the safest and most efficient strategy for removing a fallen or damaged tree and restoring your property back to the way it was before the tree fell.

Reducing the Risk of Fallen Trees

Homeowners can take steps to reduce the risk of falling trees. Don’t wait until an adverse weather event to remove a dead or dying tree. Some of the symptoms of a sick or dying tree include:

  • Lack of growth
  • Signs of infection like fungus, discolored leaves, crumbling branches, etc.
  • Large dead branches
  • Cracks or splits in the trunk
  • Root defects and discoloration
  • Hollowness in trunk
  • Leaning
  • Sprouts around the base
