There are many reasons which people have concluded that their trees need to be pruned and/or removed. The following is a partial list of why one may want to prune and/or remove their trees:

How long does it take to remove a tree?
The length of time that is required to remove a tree varies greatly from the size of a tree to the physical number of trees being removed. True's Tree Service completes most tree jobs in one business day. There are situations where when dealing with large numbers of trees that a job may take two or three days.
What is meant by standing dead?
Standing dead is in reference to a tree which has died but is still in the upright position. Standing dead trees can be very dangerous to people and pets. The trees can drop branches without notice or can fall over much easier than healthy trees. Once a tree dies, the decomposition process starts and weakens the tree more and more. Standing dead trees that have deteriorated can be very dangerous to remove safely.
What is the part of a tree which is called the stump?
The part of the tree which is called the stump is the part of the trunk that is left in the ground after the trunk has been cut off. Stumps can be of different heights, most stumps after a tree removal are six inches and under of trunk remaining above the ground. There are some times where one would like a stump to be cut high to the size of one to two feet.
Roots radiate out from the stumps and can spread out in many directions for many feet. A stump does not include all of the roots that are part of the tree. The stump only includes the roots that are located physically close to the trunk of the tree. Roots that radiate outside of a one foot area from the trunk are not considered part of the stump.
Is stump removal a normal part of removing a tree?
Stump removal is not a normal part of removing a tree, but the request to remove stumps happens on a high frequency.

Are permits required to remove a tree?
The answer to this question is, "it depends". It depends on which town that the tree is located in. Different towns have different policies and procedures pertaining to the removal of trees. It is the responsibility of the tree owner to make sure that all permits are properly obtained and in full effect. This includes any and all special permits that may be required for trees that are regulated by conservation land laws.
