You can put off some home tasks only so long before trouble begins. When it comes to trimming or removing trees, there are three times when it's best to call in a professional tree service. Listed below are those three situations.
Your Home Is Infested With Pests
It's no fun to find out that squirrels and rats have infested your home or attic. Many home pests make their way onto your roof and into vents, pipes and crevices by first climbing down a tree branch.
Pests including termites also may access your home from rotting wood on a nearby tree. Limbs touching your exterior walls, windows or roof can lead to more bird droppings on the house, broken windows and roof damage from falling limbs. Have a professional tree service get up high and trim those risky limbs away from your house now.
You won't put yourself in danger while you ensure your home is safer. Choose an experienced, licensed and insured tree company so there's no stress about anyone else getting hurt either.
You Have Diseased Trees on Your Property
There is a host of diseases and pests that can damage or even kill trees. If you have palm trees, a disease called conk, or Ganoderma butt rot, is a fatal disease affecting all types of palm trees. The spores that spread the disease are carried on the wind and land on soil and plants.
A conk is a spongy, white growth at the base of palms that is often the first indication a tree is affected. A brownish shelf will soon develop over the conk. There is no known cure for the disease.
Ganoderma fungus eats away at the lower four to five feet of a palm's trunk. Nearby trees will all be affected. Fronds may die before the conks even appear. If you notice conks or drooping foliage on palms, consult a tree specialist. The disease is extremely contagious, so all affected trees must be removed.
You Need Property Cleared Now
Piles of rotting wood and broken limbs attract pests that can cause problems for your landscape and your home. if you live in a development, your HOA may be less-than-polite about your responsibilities to trim thick foliage and remove dangerous trees.
After hurricanes, some communities limit the amount of yard waste and storm debris you can set out at the curb. County and municipal crews are simply too overwhelmed to deal with the overflow. In some cases, you may be physically unable to clear debris after high winds and heavy rains.
A professional tree service has the tools and skills to clear your property the right way. They help you comply with HOA rules on trees and shrubbery so you don't face fines or harassment. If you haven't got the time or strength to deal with debris and trimming duties, a tree service is happy to get the job done for you.
Some tree companies offer chipping and shredding services using debris from healthy trees. You can add the shredded or chipped wood to mulch, garden fill or livestock bedding.
When the local sanitation crews are refusing to haul your storm-damaged wood away, a tree service may be able to do the job for you. Check with your tree service first, since they often have arrangements to dump yard waste at a private location.
