Owning a piece of property comes with certain responsibilities. One of these responsibilities is the care of your trees. Caring for your trees can save you time and money later on, even if this means removing the tree or trimming it extensively. This is when you might need to call a tree removal company or specialist. Here are the most common reasons why you might speak with a professional about your trees.
You Are Building a New Home
If you are building a new home on a wooded property, you should consult an arborist or someone who specializes in trees. There are a lot of factors involved in clearing land. Some of these include:
- Identification of endangered or protected tree species
- Removal of large trees to make a place for your home
- Older larger trees may need to be trimmed back, so you don’t endanger your home
Before you begin construction, have a tree specialist look at your trees.
You Are Building a Pool or Other Structure
If you are building an inground or above ground pool, you should make sure there are no trees that could damage the pool, screen or decking. You will also have to worry about trees and your filtration system. Tree roots are strong enough to crack concrete and break pipes as they grow. Speak with a tree removal specialist before beginning your project to ensure that trees won’t be a problem now or later on.
Your Trees Are Rotting or Diseased
As trees age, they are vulnerable to rot, disease and parasites. An arborist can help you determine if you can save the tree or if it needs to be removed. Sometimes if you catch the problem early enough, you can save the tree. Unfortunately, other times the tree may need to be removed to prevent it from falling on its own.
Taking care of your trees will increase your property value and prevent damage to your home. Never try to remove a large tree without first speaking with a tree removal expert. Only they can help you determine if the tree needs to be removed.
