Why Property Owners Need Professional Tree Removal and Tree Services

Most property owners know that they need professional help to do a lot of things including plumbing, electrical wiring and roof repair. Yet they believe that they can remove trees and perform tree maintenance chores including pruning themselves.

Cutting down and getting rid of a dead, dying or unwanted tree is actually a complex and dangerous chore that can take several hours. It can also require special skills and equipment that most people do not have. Can you cut down a tree in such a way so that it will not fall upon a house, a car, a building, the sidewalk, the street or the power lines? Something to remember is that the property owner will be liable for any damage or injuries caused by a falling tree.

Even if you can bring the tree down safely, do you know how to get rid of it? Most trash disposal companies do not haul dead wood off? You will have to find a pro to do that. Do you know how to remove the stump without tearing up the yard?

So it’s obvious why you need professional tree removal in Atlanta. Hiring the pros to do this task makes sense and can save you money in the long run. Even if you know how to do it, cutting down a dead tree can take several hours away from activities that you really enjoy or money making work.

Professional services can help with other tree related chores as well including spraying, pruning and trimming. It can take several hours to remove limbs from a tree and it has to be done safely. Do you have the proper tools and know how to use them safely.

Something to remember that any damage done by a falling limb is your responsibility. You will be liable for that damage. Even without the safety factor there is the time it will take. It can take several hours to prune a tree.

Tree services can save property owners time and money and help them keep their property looking good. That way you can concentrate on the things that you really want to do.

A Professional Tree Service can Help Rental and Investment Property Owners

Something that rental and investment property owners should seriously consider is hiring professional tree services. Such a company can help improve the value and attractiveness of your property.

Well-groomed trees, bushes and shrubs make a property more attractive to potential renters and buyers. Dead, sick, untrimmed and un-pruned will drive owners away from a property. They also look unprofessional and just plain ugly. Potential purchasers and renters will think the property is un-maintained.

Anybody who purchases a foreclosure or any other property that has sat empty for more than a few months should definitely have a tree company look at the shrubs, brushes and trees on it. Even if they look healthy they could be infected with fungal diseases or infested with pests that could kill them. A tree service employs professional arborists that can identify such menaces and take steps to prevent them.

Another problem is that tree limbs can grow into power lines and building and cause damage. Limbs that grow over a roof can fall on the building and damage it. Limbs that grow over a neighbor’s property can also fall and cause damage you could be held liable for.

A service can also help with the problem of dead or dying trees or trees that get too big. It can remove those trees safely, completely, legally and quickly. In many cases it can be dangerous or hard to remove a tree. You will need to hire a special service to get rid of the trunk and you face the danger of it falling on a building or house and damaging it. The pros can remove such a trunk without any damage.

Finally there is the problem of stumps, a professional tree maintenance company can take care of them with a stump grinder. This is a device that can literally turn a stump into sawdust. That completely eliminates the problem. It will look as if there was never a stump there to begin with.

What are Tree Trimming and Stump Grinding?

If you own any sort of commercial, residential, investment or rental property with trees on it, tree trimming and stump grinding are two services you may need to take advantage of sooner or later. 

Benefits of Tree Trimming
Tree trimming is the pruning and cutting of trees and shrubs for appearance and safety. Trees that are regularly trimmed and pruned look better. This can increase the value and enhance the appearance of your property. For example houses with good looking foliage out front are often easier to sale or rent.

There are safety reasons for trimming of trees as well, limbs can grow into power lines and buildings. They should definitely cut before this happens. If limbs are not trimmed back you can end up paying thousands of dollars for repairs. If the limbs on your trees grow into a neighbor’s building or the power line you could be liable for the damages.

It is best to have your trees pruned and trimmed by a professional service. Such a service can do the job safely, effectively and quickly. Pruning can be very dangerous especially to those who are inexperienced at it. It can also cause damage that you would have to pay for, for example if the limbs you cut fell on your neighbor’s car, he could sue you.

Something else that people may not realize is that pruning limbs at the wrong time of the year can spread tree-killing funguses and insects. Obviously you do not want to do that.

What is Stump Grinding?
A stump grinder is a special machine that literally turns stumps into sawdust. Such a device can get rid of a stump without tearing up your yard or damaging your lawn or gardens. It can completely and totally get rid of a stump so you can plant a new tree, put in a garden or do some building.

Stump grinding can get property ready for building and get rid of unsightly stumps that are in your way. It has to be done by professional services but it is cheaper, safer and less destructive than traditional alternatives such as bulldozers and dynamite.

Like trimming, stump grinding should be done by the pros because stumps from dead trees need to be removed completely. Such stumps often contain fungal disease and insect pests that can spread to the rest of your trees or shrubs and kill them.
