5 Reasons Why You Need a Professional Tree Felling Service

There comes a time in every home owner’s life when they need to get rid of a problematic tree. It may seem easy just to grab your chainsaw and cut it down, but you shouldn’t do that. Tree felling is a difficult task that is best left to the professionals. While it may seem easy to do it yourself, a simple mistake can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

Here are five reasons why you need to call a professional tree felling service to help you remove unwanted trees.

1. Property Damage

Chances are you don’t have proper insurance to cover any damage you cause should a tree fall onto your neighbor’s house or property. A professional tree felling service does.

But more importantly.

They have the necessary experience too. They understand how to cut a tree, how to ensure that it doesn’t cause any damage, and the insurance to cover any accidents that do happen. It’s worth paying a little extra to protect yourself from potential headaches.

2. Your Safety Matters

Tree felling isn’t as simple as standing behind the tree and cutting. There is a distinct technique and approach that you need to follow to do it right. It’s no secret that trees are heavy. The smallest mistake can lead to severe injuries, and even death.

You don’t want to be responsible for injuring someone because you tried to cut your own tree down. Leave that task to the professionals who make a living out of tree felling.

3. Experience

Tree felling involves more than just cutting a tree. You need to go into it with a plan. There’s more to it than just cutting the tree at the base and letting it fall. Some larger trees may need to be cut down in segments. A professional tree felling service is experienced and knows how to handle these types of trees.

They will provide you with an accurate quote, explain the process, how they plan to remove and dispose of the tree, and they will even offer to remove the stump for you. Don’t underestimate how valuable experience is when it comes to removing unwanted trees.

4. They Remove Everything

There’s more to tree felling than just removing the tree itself. If you want the job to be done right, you need to grind and remove the stump. You likely don’t have the proper equipment to do this. A professional tree feller does. They have a specialized stump grinder that can remove the stump entirely, a wood chipper for grinding up the chopped segments of the tree, and a flatbed truck for disposal.

If you want to do the job right, it’s important that you remove the stump to enable grass to grow in the area where the tree was removed.

5. Package Deals

Do you need tree felling for more than one tree on your property? Professional tree cutters often offer discounts if you hire them to cut multiple trees at once.

Why is that?

The answer is simple. Whether a tree removal company is cutting one tree or many, they need to bring all of their equipment to the job. It’s in their interest to make that trip worthwhile. You will have to pay more to cut multiple trees, but you will likely get a better per tree price.

If you need to have multiple trees cut at once, make sure to let your tree cutting company know when you are asking for a quote.

4 Things Your Landscaping Service Can Do for You In the Winter

You take pride in your lawn. After all, you’ve worked all summer to keep it looking nice, or you contracted your favorite landscaping service to keep things in order. When the winter weather sets in, it may seem easy just to leave your lawn be until springtime. But there are still many things you can have your landscaping service do.

Here are five things you should get your landscaping company to do during the winter.

1. Trim Your Shrubs, Trees, and Hedges

Many people try and trim their shrubs, trees, and hedges during the summer time. While this may be the most common time this task occurs, it’s often easier to maintain them during the winter months.

Why is that exactly?

In the winter months, those trees, shrubs, and hedges will have shed all of their leaves. This alone makes it easy for you to prune and trim them so they can grow even healthier in the summer months. Remember, it’s always recommended you work with a professional landscaping service when it comes to pruning and trimming. A simple mistake can severely harm your plants.

2. Remove Leaves and Debris (Before Heavy Snowfall)

Leaves and debris are the enemies of your lawn. When you leave leaves and debris on your lawn, it stunts the growth of your grass. You should take the time to remove them during the fall, that way your grass will grow in healthy and lush in the summer.

You may have to rake several times during the fall, as certain trees can take a reasonable amount of time to lose all of their leaves. If you dread the thought of raking, ask your landscaping service to take care of it for you. Many companies will offer several other value-added services like tree trimming and pruning that can be combined with basic maintenance packages.

3. Prep for a New Lawn Design (Before Freezing)

If you’re planning to install a new flower bed, mulch, or some other set piece, it’s best you get your landscaping service to remove anything that you are looking to get rid of. Once the frost sets in, it’s extremely difficult to remove deeply rooted plants, trees, and other things that you want to be cleared for your new landscaping feature.

4. Repair Broken Decks and Patios

If your deck and patio are damaged, they may collapse during a heavy snowfall. We recommend you repair your deck and patio before winter arrives. While it may not seem that important, it’s always easier to fix your deck than it is to build a new one.

A landscaping service can help you repair your deck and patio, as well as assess your irrigation systems for cracks, and check the condition of your stone and concrete walkways.
