Consider your Neighbors Before Kansas City, MO Tree Removal

For you, a tree might hold sentimental value, produce flowers or fruit, or the perfect amount of shade for your yard. Legally speaking though, trees can be seen as liabilities, property, or a special preserved species. There are a lot of factors to think about before removing a tree from your Kansas City property. There are big questions to be asked and answered before starting the whole process.

If you are looking to trim or remove a tree that is near your neighbor’s home or property for it is a good idea to be courteous to your neighbors and let them know ahead of time of any major landscaping projects. Take a look at this list of examples you should think about before a tree becomes a liability:

  • If a tree is on a shared, neighbor property line you may both own the tree equally.
  • You may have permission to cut a tree even if it is located on your neighbor’s property, if the branches extend to your property. Also, if there is damage on your property from branches or otherwise, your neighbor may be liable for the damages.
  • In the case that a dead or weak tree from your property has fallen onto your neighbor’s property, you could be responsible for paying the damages.

Of course, this is not a comprehensive list and every municipality is different. Keep in mind that these instances are regulated by tree laws which are your specific area so contact your local council for the official rules and regulations.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
