Hire a Tree Trimming Company to Help Clear a Heavily Wooded Property

When you have a piece of property that you are trying to sell, many real estate agents will suggest you have a path created to the center of the property and then a plot where a home could potentially be located. This requires a lot of trees and shrubbery to be removed from the property, and hiring a tree trimming company can make the process much easier and quicker. The guide below walks you through the process of having a piece of property partially cleared when you plan to sell it.

Meet With a Technician From the Tree Trimming Company

The first thing you will need to do is contact the company and have them send a technician to your property. In order to give you an estimate for what the entire clearing process will cost, they will need to walk the property with you in person. It is best to have a print out of the property lines for the company to keep so that they can make sure that they do not cross into your neighbor's property while creating a path or clearing a plot where a house could be located.

Mark Where the Path Should Be Located

Use spray paint to mark the trees that need to be removed to create the path that you want to have created. Decide if you want the path to be large enough for a car to drive through or if you simply want a walking path to be created. The larger the path is, the more it will cost to have it created, so keep that in mind when deciding what you want to have done.

Add Markers for Plotting the Home

Talk to your real estate agent about how to properly plot the home. You want to be sure to use stakes with flags on them to plot the home. Mark all of the trees within the stakes as well as the trees directly around the stakes to mark which trees need to be removed so that an opening in the property where a home could be built can be created.

As the tree trimming company cuts down the trees and shrubbery, they will often have a chipper with them that they can use to shred the trees so that they can haul them away with ease so that you do not have to worry about doing any clean up when they are done. The property will be ready to show and you will not have to do any intensive labor at all.
