So it has come to this. Your tree has overgrown to the point where you don’t even know what’s holding it together… because you can’t tell anymore. Your neighbors are angry, you’re angry and any property owner’s initial reaction is to head to the store and grab a good set of trimmers to get the job done as quickly as possible.
But did you know that this seemingly innocent action can have long-term harmful effects on your tree? You want the job done correctly and swiftly so you can have one less headache to worry about. Here’s why you should consider hiring a tree service company to help you get there.
Doing it yourself may seem like the most affordable option, but can you afford to actually kill the trees that add to your landscape? Here are just some of the dangers that homeowners and business owners face when they choose to DIY rather than hire the professionals:
- Bodily harm
- Tree Damage
- Property Damage
- Hurting your trees more than helping
- Decreasing the value of your home instead of increasing
Dangers to Humans
If not properly trained and equipped with the right tools, trimming trees can unexpectedly be a very dangerous task. If a ladder is needed to reach those pesky branches, keeping one’s balance while trimming is like trying to balance a pinecone on a bowling ball.
Proper safety gear is worn by professionals to avoid injury. Sure, buying a trimmer is within budget, but is a trip to the emergency room? In this case, it is better to see a cherry-picker truck pulling up to your home than it is to see an ambulance.
Dangers to Trees
