Burt trees cut down after a Wildfire near West Kelowna BC

Dangerous Tree Removal for Wildfire Resiliency

Wildfires produce incredibly high temperatures, which lead to tree bark cracking and quickly heating up the inside of the tree. The cambium layer of the tree, which is in charge of distributing water and nutrients throughout the tree, dies from the extreme heat. Trees that no longer have a functioning cambium layer are not able to transfer nutrients within themselves and are killed.

Trees that have been dried out and killed in a wildfire are structurally very weak. Burnt timber left standing after a wildfire is a hazard as it can be a fuel source for another fire or potentially fall on structures or people nearby.

Dangerous burnt trees need to be removed from a property. Because of their weak structure, these trees have to be removed by a highly experienced team of arborists with very specialised equipment like Action Tree. Action Tree Services has the largest fleet of specialised tree removal equipment, including mobile cranes. Action Tree is the best-equipped arborist that specialises in the removal of burnt trees. If your property has been affected by wildfires and you need dangerously burned trees removed, contact Action Tree Service for help today.

What is a Dangerous Tree Removal?

Let’s be clear, all tree removal services have a level of danger involved, but it is a fact that some tree removal services are far more dangerous than others and need to be treated with priority and respect. While many individuals may consider cutting down a tree on their own, most would never attempt a dangerous tree removal, so what exactly is a dangerous tree removal, and how can one be completed as safely as possible?

Dangerous Tree Removal services are exactly as they sound, the tree needs to be removed, and that removal should be expedited and handled with care due to the nature of the tree in its current condition. Dangerous trees are caused due to a variety of reasons:

  • Age and rot- As trees age and die naturally, rot and insects can make the dying tree no longer safe to be around. Decaying trees are unpredictable and can be deadly to those attempting to remove them. 
  • High Wind- High wind storms can break tree limbs and small tree trunks. These limbs can get stuck on surrounding trees, creating a ticking time bomb for when it will fall to the ground. 
  • Heavy Snowfall- Heavy Snowfall putting additional weight onto tree limbs can break the tree or large limbs on the tree, creating a hazard
  • Trees falling into one another- If a tree falls but does not fall to the ground, it is only a matter of time before it breaks loose or breaks the tree on which it is leaning. Gravity will eventually do its work, and it may happen at the worst possible moment, endangering the lives of those around it. 
  • Tree Size- Very large trees are complicated to remove. From heights involved to the machinery needed, large trees should be left to the professionals to cut.
  • Proximity to Power Lines- A tree falling into a power line can not only cause blackouts but can create the additional hazard of fallen power lines. 

Regardless of the reason, tree care professionals should always be called in to handle dangerous tree removals.

What are the Dangers Involved in Felling Dangerous Trees?

Dangerous trees are considered dangerous for many of the reasons listed above. The main problem in felling such trees is the uncertainty of when, how, and in what direction the tree will fall. The number one safety hazard most face in a dangerous tree situation is the potential of falling limbs and branches. Even with protective gear such as hard hats, the blunt force of getting hit by a branch can be deadly. 

In many circumstances, especially when dealing with broken trees from wind storms or heavy snow, tree limbs are tangled up in other parts of the tree or surrounding trees. The potential of gravity pulling the limb to the ground in an unexpected direction or at an unexpected time is always present, even while professionals cut through branches to release them. Ladders can be hit by falling tree debris, knocking them down, along with anyone on them. Additionally, wind or ice storms can create tree hazards over live power lines.
