3 Reasons To Hire A Professional Tree Service

There are some aspects of your landscaping that you can easily take care of yourself, such as mowing your lawn, pulling weeds in your flowerbeds, or raking your rocks. However, there are some aspects of landscape maintenance that are best left to the professionals, such as caring for your trees. This article will discuss 3 reasons to hire a professional tree service.

Bug Infestation Or Disease

If one or more of your trees are experiencing a bug infestation, or are being plagued by disease, then you may want to consider hiring a professional tree service to come and examine your trees. They will be able to carefully inspect and test your trees to see exactly what bug and/or disease is harming your trees. If they find that the problem is a bug infestation, they will use pesticides that are safe for your trees, but will effectively kill the bug infestation. If your tree is plagued by disease, they will likely cut away the parts that have been completely overtaken by the disease, and will make sure the disease doesn't spread to any of the other plants in your yard. 

Dangerous Tree Location

If your tree was planted in a location that makes it somewhat difficult or dangerous to trim and otherwise care for on your own, then it will be in your best interest to hire a professional for the job. For example, if your tree is located next to a power line, and actually grows up into the power line when it isn't trimmed, then you run the risk of coming in contact with the power line when trying to trim it. However, if you decide to hire a professional tree trimming service to trim the tree for you, they will use an aerial work platform. This platform will carefully raise them into the air, and allow them to cut and prune the tree while completely avoiding the power lines. 

Dead Tree

If you have a standing dead tree in your yard, this is a hazard in and of itself. The dead tree could fall over at any time, causing damage to anyone or anything around it. Your home, your children, your pets, etc. could all be in danger. When you hire a professional tree service, they will come to your home right away, with chains, trucks, saws, and all other gear needed to properly remove the dead tree.
