The Hazards of Tree Removal and Why You Should Hire a Professional
Did you know that each year there are more than 100 tree-related deaths in the US and countless injuries? Although workers in the tree care industry make up a number of these, many of these incidents are homeowners attempting tree removal without professional help.
If you have trees that you want removed from your property, you need professional tree removal services.
Let us look at some of the dangers you face if you try to do it on your own and the reasons you should leave it to the pros.
Dangers of Tree Removal
Falling is one of the leading causes of tree-related deaths. If you need to trim branches before removing the tree, you are putting yourself at risk of a fall. To cut branches, you will have to wield heavy tools and this means climbing up and down ladders with those tools. This makes a fall much more likely.
Another danger of tree removal is being hit by trunks or branches. As you cut the tree, there may be loose branches that may fall on you or on your property. The risk of this type of danger is much higher if the tree is already dead.
If the tree is already dead or decaying, this can pose a significant danger. You will not know how the tree will fall. Gravity is not on your side when felling a tree that is not stable.
Keep in mind that if the tree falls on your property and it was not a professional doing the work, your homeowners’ insurance will not cover the damage.
Reasons to Hire Professionals
A professional tree removal company will have the insurance necessary to provide these services without putting your home at risk. If an accident occurs, you know their insurance will cover the damage. Professionals will also have safety protocols in place to minimize risks, allowing the workers and you to be safe at all times as the work begins.
Professional tree removal services have the exact tools they need to provide efficient and affordable services. They will be able to get the job done much more quickly than you would and without requiring that you go out and purchase tools.
You can expect post-removal cleaning from professional tree removal companies. They will clear debris and even remove the entire tree if that is what you prefer. They will inspect the yard for any concerns, providing advice on how to best maintain it, and they will remove rodents or other pests that the felled tree might have dislodged.
Professionals will know how to remove a tree without damaging nearby plants. Falling branches and debris can wreak havoc on your yard, but experts will be able to mitigate the damage and protect other trees and plants.
