You’re probably thinking whether you can do tree trimming on your own. Calling a contractor, after all, may cost you a bit extra. Perhaps getting rid of those extra branches by yourself would be easy, right? Wrong.
We’ve seen tree trimming DIY’s gone wrong. Accidents as well as trees getting in bad shape after an improper trimming procedure could have easily been avoided if an expert was called. But these property owners can’t really be blamed. After all, we all want to save money in all ways possible. However, when it comes to risky tasks such as tree maintenance, it is best to leave it to the pros.
What is Tree Trimming and Why is It Important?
What is tree trimming anyway? Why do you need this kind of service? Trees grow thousands of years with very little to no maintenance without any problems. So why must you have your tree trimmed?
Tree trimming is the process where in an overgrown tree, especially in a property where people live or work, is literally trimmed down. It’s basically the same principle as to why humans need hair cuts — without proper care your hair would get tangled, rough, or even have split ends, not to mention how you would be more beautiful if you get your hair fixed.
It is essential to trim down weak branches or those that are growing way too large. Of course, trimming can make a tree look beautiful. But more importantly, tree trimming is necessary to assist the growth of the tree and keep it strong. Those weak branches may fall down especially when there are strong winds and storms. Furthermore, you probably won’t want branches growing too close to your home.
Why Do You Need to Hire a Tree Contractor?
You can easily buy tools like chainsaws to help you trim down a large tree, but the process isn’t as simple as just cutting down any branch. First of all, you have to identify the right branches to cut down. Trimming some sensitive tree parts may disrupt the growth of the tree or even cause tree infections and diseases. In some cases, improper tree trimming may also bring death to a tree.
Even more important for you to realize is that tree trimming is a very dangerous task that requires not only the proper tools, but also the right knowledge. A lot of experience would help too. All these things and more are second nature to tree contractors.
When you hire a contractor, you won’t have to put your safety at risk. Mistakes in DIY tree trimming may also cost you even more in the long run, especially if you have to call a contractor anyway to fix those mistakes.
