While many trees are beautiful and even desirable, not all trees fall into that category — some fast-growing trees behave more like weeds, with invasive and aggressive roots capable of causing structural damage to your home.
At Pearl Properties, we’ve been working in real estate in South Carolina for quite some time… and we’ve seen a lot of homes that were damaged by trees.
Here are just a few trees that can cause problems…
- White Ash
- American Elm
- Silver Maple
- Weeping Willow
So… how do you remove a tree from your property?
Here are your options…
For Smaller Trees — For a small tree, you can cut it down and remove the stump by digging it up, using a chemical remover, or burning it.
For Medium Trees — For a medium-sized tree, you might be able to cut it down on your own, but make sure you take all the necessary precautions. Then you can remove the stump in the same way you would a smaller tree.
For Large Trees — For a large tree, we highly recommend hiring an expert to help… otherwise you could do damage to yourself and/or your property.
Hope that helps!
