The best time of year to remove a tree is the winter or early spring. This is because the tree’s leaves will have fallen and the branches are bare. This is also the time when trees are dormant. All of this makes it easier to remove a tree. 

Specifically, the months of February and March are usually the cheapest months for tree removal. Also, during this time period, there will be minimal disruption to the surrounding landscaped areas on your property. 

You might assume that the frozen ground would make it more challenging to remove a tree. In actuality, the warm earth is more easily disturbed. Frozen ground keeps vegetation safely in place during the removal of a tree. 

Winter conditions mean it will involve less work and less money to do your tree removal. 

Other Factors That Affect When to Get a Tree Removal Appraisal 

Tree is a danger to you or others – If you believe that your diseased or decayed tree poses an imminent danger to people or structures, the best time for a tree removal is as soon as possible. 

For instance, your tree could have a major pest issue, such as emerald ash borer. These pests can quickly move to adjacent trees. A professional arborist will be able to tell you if your sick tree requires immediate action or if it can wait to the optimal (dormant season) time of the year.

Tree has serious disease, decay or is dying Dead trees are hazardous. Dying trees, in addition to diseased or decaying trees, can fall quite easily. This poses an immediate threat to people and structures. Because a tree that is ailing could fall at any time, it is not a risk worth taking to do nothing or put it off.

Trees in any of these conditions can spread diseases and jeopardize the health of nearby trees. Getting rid of diseased trees will also prevent them from spreading plant diseases. 

Also, like humans, dead trees will decompose, and this is likely to draw rodents and vermin.

By removing your tree right away, your home could be spared a possible infestation of roaches, mice, rats, and other pests. 

Finally, trees in these conditions will reduce the aesthetic value of your property. This may have a direct negative impact on the sales price of your house.
