Keeping Your Trees Healthy

When I first bought a new house, I realized that the front trees were a little overgrown. I was worried about a branch breaking in the wind and smashing into a window or the roof, and so I decided to invest in professional tree service. When the arborist came, he had more concerns than just a few overgrown branches. Apparently, a few of my trees had also developed serious pest infestations, and I was worried about what it might mean for their health. He carefully trimmed each tree to ward off disease, and within a few weeks, they were looking a lot better. This blog explains how a professional tree trimmer could help you, so that you aren't left with dying trees.

Three Important Reasons To Hire A Tree Service

Trees can add a high degree of beauty to your yard, and while your regular upkeep tasks such as pruning can ensure the trees and healthy and vibrant for years, there comes a time that you need to step aside and hire a professional tree service. Whether you need a tree cut down or some large branches trimmed to keep the tree healthy and avoid it infringing on your house, a professional has the expertise and tools to get the job done right. There are many reasons why hiring a tree service is beneficial. Here are three.


It's extremely dangerous to perform significant work on a tree without the right tools and experience. If you're cutting a tree down, there's always a risk it will fall in an unintended direction, which could be fatal. Removing heavy tree limbs is also dangerous work; you can't simply cut them off and hope they fall safely to the ground. A professional tree service's safety-first approach dramatically lessens the risk of injuries. For a tree removal, the crew will safely remove individual segments of the tree to avoid the potential complications of felling the tree. For trimming jobs, the crew will often cut higher limbs from a bucket truck and lower the limbs in a controlled manner using ropes.

Tree Health

Correctly trimming a tree is about more than just removing the limbs that are in the way. Cutting off too much of a tree can damage the tree's health, while not cutting off enough can lead to further complications down the road. Tree service employees are highly skilled in understanding the health of trees -- many crews have certified arborists -- and will know exactly the right approach to take to keep the tree healthy and thriving in your yard.

Legal Protection

Tackling a removal or trimming job without the right approach poses some legal risks. Because there's always the chance of something going wrong when an amateur is doing the work, there's a risk of the tree damaging a home, a vehicle or even crashing into a nearby power line. Having a team of professionals perform the work on your behalf allows you to breathe easy. Not only will the crew take all the necessary steps to avoid issues with its work, but you'll be off the hook in the event there are any complications during the tree removal that lead to legal issues.
