Milford – A Historic, tree rich township

Milford, CT is known as a historic, tree rich township and, if you're a property owner in this town, part of the appeal is undoubtedly the prevalence of trees, parks and wooded areas throughout the town and its outskirts. However, there can be too much of a good thing, and there are times when it's appropriate to get rid of trees on your property. Sometimes, you might want to remove a healthy tree that you'd simply rather not have on your property. At other times, a tree needs to be removed because it constitutes a potential hazard.

One of the reasons why you'll need to remove a tree is due to disease. Once disease takes over a tree, it is only a matter of time before the tree dries out and causes grave danger from heavy, falling branches. It's also common for the entire trunk of a diseased tree to spontaneously split in half.

Bad weather only makes the hazard worse - trees, especially ones weakened by disease, frequently fall after a strong storm. While hurricanes aren't a common problem in Connecticut, our state has seen its share of them, and even a strong nor'easter blowing through the area can uproot a tree or knock down some weak branches.

When it comes to preventing tree damage, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Fortunately, if you have trees on your property that you want assessed for potential hazard, you can easily contact an Orange CT tree removal service to help you remove damaged and uprooted trees off of your property.

After the tree is gone, you'll still need to deal with the stump, which leaves you two choices. You can have the stump removed by the root if it's feasible, or you can have the stump ground down into mulch and chips, until none of it protrudes above ground.

If the tree has been uprooted due to storms and fell in one piece, the whole root system may still remain attached to it and become exposed, with the trunk acting as a lever. If this takes place, then removing the entire stump will be an easy task. On the other hand, if the stump is rooted firmly in the ground, the contractors will need to test the depth of the roots.

Since trees can live for hundreds of years, the roots might be too thick, deep, and entangled to lift and remove. Therefore, it might be best to leave the stump in the ground. However, the stump can be chopped up to six inches above the ground, making it as level to the ground as possible. After it's covered with dirt, you may strain to remember there was ever a tree standing there.
