If a tree falls in your backyard and there’s no one there to hear it, at the end of the day, you’ve got a large chunk of wood to contend with. Every year, millions of homeowners face the same conundrum of how to deal with a fallen tree. Even smaller trees weigh far more than most people realize, making them difficult and even dangerous to remove from your property.


If you’ve had a tree fall in your backyard, you might be wondering what to do with it. That’s the perfect time to call a tree removal service. In this post, our team of tree removal experts at Vital Tree Service in Woodbury helps you decide what to do with old trees that need to be removed from your property.


Turning Your Old Trees into Firewood

Small trees are easy to contend with as, in most cases, they can be easily removed from your property. However, older trees can be quite large and difficult to remove, which is why you need to call a professional team to protect your home and property.


With winter on the way, your former trees can easily be turned into firewood to help keep your family warm all winter long. Some larger trees can end up yielding a significant amount of firewood depending on their size. Hardwood burns better than softwood, so you’ll get better firewood from your oak tree than you will from a downed pine tree. It’s also important to make sure the wood is completely dried out before you try to burn it, or you’ll be waiting a long time to get a strong flame going.


Removing Existing Trees

In addition to removing fallen trees, we can also remove existing trees from your property. Aging trees with compromised structural integrity can pose a threat to the safety of your home and family. Removing them can be difficult and require specialized equipment and techniques to keep everyone safe and prevent property damage.


By hiring a professional tree removal service, you’re giving your healthier trees a chance to grow and thrive. At the same time, you’ve got a great source of firewood on your hands.


Other Ideas for Repurposing Old Trees

If you don’t have a fireplace, you can always think about adding a fire pit to your backyard. May home improvement stores offer a wide selection of attractive backyard fire pits that are ideal for staying warm outdoors on cool autumn evenings or toasting marshmallows with your sweetheart.


Once we’ve cut up your old tree, you can choose what to do with it, and there are countless ideas available on the Internet. Here are a few more ideas for making use of those old trees:


●        Turn them into mulch

●        Create furniture

●        Have them converted into lumber
