4 Warning Signs You Need Tree Trimming Services ASAP!

Published On: August 2nd, 20212.7 min read

Not many people think about the importance of having a relationship with a local tree trimming service. While you may not realize it, chances are you will need some sort of trimming services in the years to come if you own a property with trees.

When that time comes, it’s important to hire a professional company with arborists on staff.  That way you’ll be sure to stay safe and save time. Plus, you’ll reduce any risk of damage to your home and property.

Keep reading for four signs to look out for that may indicate you are in need of tree trimming!

1. Dead Branches

Dead branches are the most common reason homeowners need their trees trimmed. Trees naturally eliminate branches as they mature and it is important to regularly prune them off.

If they are left on the tree these branches will become brittle and have the potential to fall on their own. This can pose a threat to children, vehicles, pets, or anything else located in proximity to the tree.

2. Double Stemmed Trees

If a tree grows to have two main trunks, it oftentimes has a weak union between the two competing leaders. This is the sign of an unstable tree structure that is prone to breaking.

Many times after a storm hits, you will see large limbs split off from the main trunk of a tree and find them laying on the ground. This is a sign that the tree was not trimmed properly in its developing years. It is very important to have a professional tree trimming service assess your tree as it grows so that there is one main leader on the tree.

Call a professional to help you develop a good branching structure on your favorite landscape trees!

3. Trees Touching Powerlines

If your trees are nearing powerlines this is a sure sign that you want to call a tree trimming service. With even the most minor windstorm you could be facing prolonged power outages due to tree limbs disrupting your electrical service.

Be proactive! Don’t risk a power outage or damage to your home when you can have a tree service come out and give you peace of mind.

4. Line of Sight & Clearance 

Our landscape needs to be practical. And if tree branches are impeding your ability to see oncoming traffic as you are pulling out of your driveway, chances are a little trimming could go a long way.

If you have tree limbs hanging low over your driveway or around the perimeter of your yard, don’t wait until they are scraping the top of your car or lawnmower.

Hire a professional tree trimming company to raise the trees safely and efficiently.

Tree Trimming

Now take a look at the trees on your property. If you notice any of these signs it is best to get them addressed before problems arise.

Keep in mind that leaving the work to the professionals will give you all of the benefits of tree trimming without the hassle of doing it yourself.

We had the A-team on our big job of 14+ trees (13 dead ash) in 3 different areas of our property, none of which were particularly easy to get to. With the added bonus of having drainage throughout the yard and avoiding the septic tank. I had 3 other companies come and look, one ghosted me!! 1 came and said no thank you, the third gave me a similar quote to Justin's, but you could tell he didn't want the job and wasn't as clear about how he'd go about it. Justin came in and was completely confident on how his team could get it done. And with a bucket truck - no cranes needed. (two of the above were talking cranes). Kyle, Kyle and Not Kyle (Cody) were great!! They worked hard and got it all done in 3 days!! They were nice, easy to talk to, piled the massive amount of trees in a great spot for the log truck. I thought taking down dead trees wouldn't open things up that much, but wow did it! I love how open and cleared out everything looks!! Lindsey and Kate were fabulous and accommodating talking about the cost of the job and log truck. And now I can add flowers and plants in the brighter area. FYI probably not going to plant trees... but some rhodies if I can keep the deer off them. (O: Thank you to ArborTech!! Cheers, until I can budget for the backyard.

The tree estimate and removal process had a quick turnaround (one week) and was coordinated around my schedule. Very accommodating. The team that showed up for the job was very professional and asked questions along the way to better meet my needs. Very affordable and highly recommend to anyone needing work done with trees!

I more than appreciate great workers...your crew is amazing! the physical ability, the mathematical knowledge even if innate, and the eye for art (cleaning up my white pines to beautiful trees) is a hard combo to find in someone. Your climber has all those skills and more. Your pricing was very reasonable! The care your crew took to ensure everything was clean and in better condition than when they came was more than apreciated by me. Even my neighbors said something! Thank you! I will call you again for future tree maintenance!

We enjoy working with the Arbortech team, from start to finish. Professional and respectful. We just had 8, 100 ft + trees removed and could not be happier with the results. We recommend Arbortech.
Arbortech is a great business to deal with. They did a big job quickly, professionally, and left our property in good condition. Lindsey, Justin, and their crews were all terrific. Highly recommend.

I needed to have a large Norway maple tree removed and wanted to get at least three estimates. Eric's tree service came out and gave me a somewhat reasonable quote of $3500, then a week later before I had gotten another estimate from a different company Eric's tree service texted me and said they'd be in the area the following week, I called them and they said they had to revisit the estimate. They came back out continued to tell me her personal problems and that my neighbor would have to move his trailer. She then sent me a new quote of $7231!!! I called Arbortech and Justin came over on the day scheduled and was my most reasonable quote! He also said my neighbor wouldn't need to move his trailer. Justin and his crew arrived on time and did a phenomenal job!! They are true professionals! They cleaned up everything. They had had to remove a fence panel and when they put it back it was more secure than it had been when it had been originally installed. Justin's quote was $4700 less than Eric's! This experience with Arbortech was purely positive I highly recommend this company! Thank you Justin, Lindsey and the rest of the crew, you guys rock!!

The service I received from everyone at Arbortech for a tree removal was absolutely wonderful. Any questions and concerns I had were answered and reassured. Justin and Lindsey were both so helpful and the value I paid for this service was outstanding. Super reasonable, and I would recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of any tree service. Super grateful and happy. If I could figure out how to add pictures to my review, I would. They did an incredible job with not just the tree removal itself, but also with a brush pile I also had taken care of. Again, highly recommend Arbortech for anyone who is in need of any type of tree service. Couldn’t be more pleased!
