There are very few plants or other living organisms that offer the majestic natural beauty as a tree. Trees (and other plants) bring several health benefits — such as lower blood pressure, increased ability to focus & concentrate, and better relaxation. Since they are the biggest plants on earth, it seems natural that we would desire to be around them… except when they begin to pose a danger. That’s when you need to call in a tree removal expert.
A tree that’s leaning, rotting, or growing into power lines or other dangerous territory can quite quickly go from gentle giant to harrowing hassle. No more low blood pressure for you! A tree falling on your home will almost certainly wreak thousands of dollars worth of damage — in this case, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So, you do what you can to fix the situation before it becomes a huge problem: you call in the tree removal experts.
When Do You Need A Tree Removed?
Every season has its own fears for falling trees. Winter brings snow-laden boughs that might crack off and come down, spring’s windstorms can trigger many a widowmaker’s fall. Summer is the height of termite season, autumn is when the trees that have some sort of disease or pest that’s been plaguing them since spring generally come down, as they prepare for winter’s dormancy and they ‘pull back’ their internal resources from their diseased limbs.
Of course, sometimes a tree that’s still alive and healthy can cause problems as well. If you have a tree whose limbs are growing directly over your home, are growing into a road, or are growing into power lines or on-pole transformers — you have a problem. That’s when you call the tree removal experts not to take the tree away entirely, but just those branches that are threatening your safety.
Isn’t This a DIY Job?
We’ll be very honest: when you’re dealing low branches that you can prune safely yourself, or small young trees that you can take down without risking damage to anything you care about… go ahead. But if you need to get higher up than the third-to-last step of a ladder, or you have even a small tree that might land on your shed or home, don’t risk it. There are two very good reasons why: insurance, and bonding.
Insurance, at least in this context, means that if we come out and take your tree away and we hurt ourselves doing it, we’re covered. We have special insurance that’s made for people doing dangerous jobs like this. Your health insurance probably doesn’t cover you doing something stupid like climbing a tree with a running chainsaw.
Bonding is like the other half of insurance — we’re bonded, which means if we come out and take your tree down and we have a catastrophe that forces us to drop the tree directly onto your house, we pay for it. If you do the same thing on your own, guess what? You pay. That alone makes the cost of a tree removal expert well worth it.
