No doubt that the trees play a vital part in providing habitat, managing storm water, stabilizing slopes and reducing air pollution. Apart from these benefits we get, there are some threats as well due to the availability of large trees with rough growth. Due to this reason, trees need to be evaluated.

The city’s settlement with a developer who clear-cut 40 trees without approval is outrageously insufficient, says the local councillor calling for a crackdown on tree killers.
“This sends the message to developers that illegally cutting trees is a cost of doing business, a slap on the wrist,” said Councillor Jaye Robinson after the parks department revealed a $155,064 fee paid by the Format Group.
Trees are evaluated by keeping in mind different situations. Like in case of heavy storm and rain, the trees with heavy branches have the risk of falling off. As a result of this, damages can be caused around your home.
In some cases you need to have permit for the removal of trees. For example, if the tree you want to remove comes in the way of any road you will require permit for this. If the tree is located on some historical site, you will require permit for this. In addition to these, if the tree is hazardous, in this case as well you must have a permit for the removal.
Here is a guide at treeremoval.com that will serve to estimate the cost of tree removal:
How Much Does Tree Removal Cost?
In this guide, we will show you how much it costs to have a variety of tree types removed from your property. There’s no cut-and-dry way to determine the exact cost to remove a tree, so these are meant to serve as guidelines. For example, the complexity of the job and the height of the tree are just two pricing factors. Costs may also vary a lot depending on the condition and location of the tree.
The average cost to remove a tree ranges from $150 to $1,500. But other tree services may cost extra. For example, the average stump removal cost ranges from $60 to $350 and the average stump grinding costs $75-$1,000 depending on numerous factors.
Removal of trees is a critical task to do. It is advised not to perform this task by yourself in case you don’t have prior knowledge and training. Otherwise it will bring more problems instead of ease for you.
