Tree Removal Services and Benefits

by Guest on Jan 10, 2014

Trees surrounding your property can have serious implications for your home or neighboring houses.  Storms can happen at any time and cause trees to fall,  potentially damaging your home. Nobody wants to remove trees unnecessarily, but sometimes it is important in order to main the safety of your property and family. Professional tree services can help you identify and remove only potentially hazardous trees, preventing costly damage or even injury while preserving the look of your space.

Safety Concerns

Fallen trees can damage buildings, vehicles, and other assets or cause injury to people and pets. For this reason, it is important to identify dangerous trees and remove them before they can cause problems. There are several reasons trees can fall, and being aware and prepared can help prevent a catastrophe.

Storms: Storms can happen anywhere, though coastal areas and properties alongside bodies of water are often at a greater risk for damage. Hurricanes, tornadoes, and heavy weather events can and commonly do knock over trees. It's likely you have experienced this yourself in your lifetime or know of somebody who has. The U.S. emergency preparedness website recommends knowing your property and preparing it for adverse weather events. Specifically, the site suggests that trimming and removal of trees and shrubs that pose threats can help keep you safe. It's worth creating a plan with your family and taking preventative actions just in case.

Additionally, trees that have fallen will need to be removed professionally as well. Part of preparing for an emergency situation is being prepared to deal with the aftermath. Having the name of a good tree removal service handy will provide peace of mind and much less stress in the event that a need for tree removal services arises.

Overgrowth: Trees can become weak as they age or develop long, heavy branches that can break off and damage property. Your property should be assessed occasionally and vegetation maintained. Trees and shrubs need to be trimmed or removed before they have the chance to cause a disaster.

Insects and Disease: Occasionally, certain types of trees and conditions can harbor harmful insects and diseases. These insects and diseases can damage and kill trees, and they can potentially even cause damage to your home or family. Early action and treatment from a certified arborist and tree removal service can prevent the spread of these hazards, protecting the rest of your trees from harm.

Cosmetics and Tree Preservation

It's not always necessary that trees be removed for safety reasons. Cabling and bracing can help support weak trees without requiring their removal. Even large, heavy branches high up in a tree can be supported using these methods. Pruning trees can make your property more attractive while removing risk, and stump removal is great for the same reasons. Overall, a strong maintenance plan coupled with emergency preparedness can give you comfort and help you and your property endure unfortunate natural events.
