For safety reasons, it is sometimes imperative to fell a tree. A dead tree can be very dangerous and can cause material breakage or even human injury. However, it is important to do business with an arborist beforehand to be sure that felling is the only alternative. Canopy conservation in urban areas is very important, but sometimes felling is the only option. To perpetuate our good urban forest, we strongly recommend stump removal and planting a new native tree to replace the felled tree.
