Why A Professional ?
Tree Services include tree removal, stump grinding, tree pruning, and limb trimming. Some of these jobs can be done by a home owner, but others are best left to trained professional that can do the job safely. An accident cutting down a tree can cost many times what a tree service professional would charge, let alone your life. The homeowner can prune trees when they are small. Pruning will help develop a good structure, with the proper development of limbs. Dead, broken, and split branches should be removed from the tree. Branches should be thinned as necessary. Some branches should be left on the trunk.
As much as the homeowner may wish to keep his trees, removal will be necessary at some point. Dead and dying trees will have to be removed. Trees may die because of storm damage, insect infestation, or old age. Sometimes trees get too big, especially if they are close to a house.
Tree removal can be very dangerous. This is particularly true if the tree is close to a house, a power line, or a street. Even when a tree can be cut down with a chain saw, it is still dangerous for the homeowner. There are many things that can go wrong using a chain saw. The safe use of a chain saw requires extensive training.
Tree service workers have the training and the equipment to remove trees safely. Their personnel can climb the tree and cut it down piece by piece when the tree being removed is too big and too close to house and power lines to be felled. The workers have the climbing equipment, the safety lines, and the training to do the job properly.
Once the tree is cut down, there is still the stump. It can take many years for a stump to rot. After it rots, there is a hole left where the stump was. A tree service can remove the stump with stump grinders. The lawn can be restored immediately without waiting for an unsightly stump to decay. Stump grinders can be rented, but the work of stump removal is hard, noisy, and dangerous. Using a tree service is a much easier way to go.
