A 200-Year Old Oak Tree Located On A Piece Of Property Is Considered To Be

When you are building a home or re-building one of your homes, it is always important to consider the impact that an old tree can have on your property. While we don't like to think of trees destroying our property or affecting our landscape, unfortunately they do and it's best to plan for this possibility. There are several methods to do this and I will discuss two of them below. If you follow these guidelines, you should have no problem at all taking care of your old tree and keeping your landscape in compliance with local ordinances.

The first method is to simply remove the old tree from your site plan. Some cities and counties have restrictions against removing old trees. Others don't have any restrictions or regulations at all. Before you remove the tree, you need to make sure that you will have enough room for moving the tree if necessary, so contact your local city or county office to get the size of the yard you have and find out how far away from your home the tree will have to be moved. Then contact a tree removal company. Make sure you explain to them exactly why you are removing the tree and ask for a quote so they can quote you appropriately.

The second method would be to simply relocate the tree once the old tree has been removed. The tree removal company will come to your location, cut down the tree, and move it to your new location. If you have a large tree, this could take days or even weeks. If you are working on a small lot, this could take minutes or less depending on the skill and equipment the tree removal company has available. The upside of this is that your landscape won't have to be altered in any way, allowing you to continue living in the way you want.

Of course, if you don't want to relocate the tree, you also have the option of just cutting it down. This would require you to first locate the tree in the area you want the tree removed, of course. Then you would draw up a land plan showing where you plan to plant the tree, if you do plan on moving it. You would also need to show the land plan to a tree removal company, explaining where the tree will be placed and how long it will be there before being removed. They will then give you a price quote for the work to be done. Make sure you have all the papers and information needed to make the sale, such as sales tax papers and a deed to the property where the tree will be planted.

Before doing either of these, however, you should first secure a place for the tree in your yard. You could build a simple pergola or gazebo to sit under, or you can build a sturdy arbor with post and brackets. You can use a post, rod, and small lockable door to house your tree once it's been removed. Once the tree is in its new home, make sure you move it to the proper spot, following the plan you drew up earlier. If you didn't do this, the tree can become root-bound, causing damage to your property and possibly cause it to fall.

Once the old oak tree is in place, make sure you water it regularly. In addition to the fact that water helps the tree's roots grow strong and healthy, it also helps the tree survive from the removal. Once the tree is established, you shouldn't have any more problems with it being a nuisance in your neighborhood.
