If you are looking to save time, money, and stress, maintaining the trees in your yard is very important. Instead of putting things off for a later time, be proactive. Making excuses for putting off your tree care can cost you time, money, and stress in the future. If you ignore warning signs for your tree, this can turn into a serious risk for you, your house, and your family. Instead of waiting for something bad to happen, take action instead. Our team at Five Star Tree Services is going to discuss why you should take preventative tree measures and how it can benefit both you and your trees.
For many people, tree maintenance is not their first priority. Many people believe that if a tree looks ok, it must be ok. But if you are not careful and regularly maintain your trees, or don’t take care of trees with problems, they can quickly turn into a much bigger issue- risking your property, home or the safety of the people around it. For instance, if there is a dead tree in your yard, not only is it an eyesore, but it is a serious risk. It can decide to fall over at any moment and potentially land on your home. Never ignore your tree management.
Don’t Leave Dead Trees
As mentioned above, dead trees are not something that you should ignore. As soon as you notice a dead tree in your yard, you need to have it removed. They are particularly hazardous during storms or strong winds but can still pose a threat after the storm has gone. They can be left even more weakened than previously, leaving their structural integrity brittle from lack of nutrients and moisture firming the trunk. This leaves them susceptible to easily breaking.
Remove dead trees immediately from your yard. If you are putting it off because of the potential cost to remove it, think of the alternative if it lands on your car, house, or injures a person. That cost is much, much more than the removal of the tree. A dead tree also has the ability to do the following:
-damage power lines which will result in power outages for you and your neighbours.
-damaging your house and/or injuring someone inside in the process
-branches breaking off and falling. They can potentially land on people passing by. You will then be held liable for their medical expenses.
In order to effectively and safely remove a dead tee, you will need to call a professional arborist to come and bring it down.
Don’t Procrastinate, Prevent!
Putting off your tree work, no matter what it is, whether it’s trimming the bushes, removing a dead tree, etc., it only piles up as more time and labor is required the longer you put it off. Not to mention the aesthetic of your yard diminishes the longer you don’t do things. These tasks can compile into things that seem very overwhelming to try and do in the future. Whereas regular maintenance can keep these tasks at a manageable level. If you let your hedges get overgrown, it can seem impossible to safely trim them back without hurting the shrub. Or if you have a dead tree, it not only poses a risk to you in your yard, but if it overhangs into your neighbour’s yard, can be hazardous to them as well. And if you don’t trim your trees, that can start obstructing your beautiful view.
Procrastinating only makes more work for you in the future and more costly as well. Being proactive can help you disperse the tasks and distribute the cost of all these tasks.
Prevent Now, Thank Yourself Later
You can save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress by doing preventative measures now instead of waiting till later for something bad to happen. Spending money on your trees might not be a top priority but getting regular maintenance can save you even more money in the future. Hiring a professional tree service company is the best and safest way to ensure your trees get the proper care they need.
There are many things that you can do yourself for your regular tree maintenance but there are a lot of other things that should be left to the professionals. They will know how to properly trim your trees so that they do not get harmed. This can require precision and exact cutting. If you try to attempt these things on your own, you could end up killing your tree. Getting the professionals is the best way to ensure the health and safety of your tree. They can tell if a tree is actually healthy or not, identify any problems, and offer solutions on how to treat it.
For things like tree removal, this should be exclusively left to the professionals. Arborists are able to remove problem branches and fully grown trees without it being a danger to you, your property, or your house. Professional tree removal is a must.
