If you own property, you may already know that many trees need removing because of lack of moisture to support a mature tree, root decay, storms, and diseases. While your first thought may be to tackle the job yourself, there are many reasons to use a professional tree removal service.
1. Professional Tree Removal Is Safer
Tree removal can be dangerous. Falling from a tree can be deadly or leave you with life-altering injuries. They can also be hazardous because you or the tree can come in contact with other objects, like live electrical wires, during removal. Additionally, nearby structures and vehicles can be harmed if the tree falls in the wrong direction.
2. Hiring a Professional Saves Money
Tree removal requires specialized equipment that you probably do not own. You may need rigging equipment for climbing large trees to remove them safely. Depending on the height of the tree, you may need ariel equipment. Of course, you will need various cutting equipment and a way to remove the stump from the ground.
3. Professional Tree Removal Increases Curb Appeal
Dead trees are unsightly, and you always want your property to look its best. Therefore, you should hire a professional to remove them and clean up the mess tree removal leaves behind. It can be difficult to hide a stump. Yet, many people who try to remove dead trees alone cannot remove the stump and fill the hole left behind.
4. Tree Removal Keeps Pests Away
While you may have planted the tree initially to attract wildlife to your yard, dead trees can attract animals you do not want. Termites, carpenter ants, and other wood-boring insects love to live in them. Then, as they multiply, they will spread to other trees, causing them to die. They can also cause damage to your home and other structures. Furthermore, snakes and mice love to live in dead trees, and you do not want them near your family.
5. Tree Removal May Increase Property Value
Removing dead and dying trees may increase the value of your property. Furthermore, removing trees that someone planted too close to structures can prevent damage to your home’s roof and foundation. Remember that most tree roots grow two to three times the length of the tree’s canopy. You may also find that removing trees planted too close together allows other trees to thrive.
