Tree Removal

Mount Pleasant Tree Removal

More Than a Decade of Experience in Charleston, SC

Trees are crucial to the environment and life on earth. Trees play several essential ecological functions, including removing carbon dioxide from the air and transforming it into life-sustaining oxygen. Our trees provide shade and protection from the rays of the sun. They are home to wildlife and hold the ground in place. 

Even through trees are essential for a healthy planet and beautify the landscape, there are situations when it is necessary to remove a tree. However, you can’t just remove the tree, because you could incur expensive fines and mitigation costs for removing a tree without a permit

Requirements for permits vary widely. Some ordinances protect trees based on height and diameter. Others specify certain types of trees in their permit requirements. Navigating the rules and regulations can be confusing. A certified arborist can provide reliable advice about the regulations for tree removal. 

What are the Requirements to Cut Down a Tree on Property in South Carolina?

Permits can be obtained for removing trees that are: 

  • Dying
  • Dead 
  • Diseased 
  • A safety hazard 
  • Located close to the footprint of a building or driveway 

A certified arborist can perform a tree risk assessment and determine if tree removal is necessary. If you have concerns about the stability of a tree on your property, the risk assessment can evaluate the condition of the tree and the actions that can be taken to solve the problem. When removal is recommended, you will need to secure the proper permits for your municipality. If removal is advised, the arborist can inform you about the requirements in your area and guide you through the permitting process. 

Once the necessary permit has been obtained, the tree removal process can begin. Removing a tree can cause major destruction to the landscape, and there is a risk of property damage or injury if the removal is not completed carefully and safely. An experienced crew with the right training and equipment can safely take the tree down without causing damage to your home or property.
