Having a yard and home of your own can truly be a wonderful thing. Especially if you've got a decent amount of land, some trees, and lots of grass to fill in the rest of the space. But just like maintaining your home comes with responsibility, so does your yard. If you have trees, large plants, or poisonous and infectious greenery around, it's up to you to protect yourself and your guests from it.
When you hire a tree service, you get all the expertise of taking care of the big stuff that could be a liability while also getting some help with the small stuff. Cutting down trees, spraying for weeds, and making mulch is all in a day's work for your local tree removal company. When you hire quality tree services, you never have to worry about the safety of your yard again.
Protect Your Home from Damaged TreesHaving a lot of trees around your home is quite nice, as they provide shade and are lovely to look at. But eventually, like all things in life, they will get toward the end of their useful age and begin to decay, degrade, or be damaged by the elements. The rule of thumb is if the tree is 50% damaged, it should be removed as soon as possible. This is because when a tree can no longer support itself, it is more than likely on its way to falling onto your roof, yard, or someone walking around. Although it doesn't seem like this would ever happen to you, one only needs to search online for stories of people, property, and cars that were crushed by trees that could have been removed.
You Can't DIY Tree RemovalTree services and landscaping companies exist for a simple reason: there are some things in life that you simply cannot do yourself. While you technically could rent a chainsaw, cut your tree down, and try to complete the project yourself, it isn't worth it. When the tree is finally cut down, can you drag it away? Usually, you can't, so it must be cut up into little pieces. Do you want to haul away these pieces, or chop them into mulch? If the answer to either of these is "no," then it's simply going to be way easier to query tree removal companies to do the job for you.
Free Mulch for EveryonePerhaps one of the greatest advantages of hiring tree services is that the end result of them cleaning up your yard and doing their job is free mulch. Because trees are so large and are usually impossible to haul away with a conventional truck, most tree services employ a wood chipper to chow down on all the excess clippings. This means that a lot of mulch is produced, which they will gladly give to you for free or deliver to anyone else that you request. To the tree service, it is simply unnecessary waste that they must dispose of before their next job. But to an intrepid gardener or your yard, it might just be the organic gold you've been looking for!
Weeds, Pests, and MoreDepending on the tree service that you hire, many are also multi-talented in that they are able to also perform basic landscaping services. From spraying for weeds to finding a way to get rid of gophers and other pests, tree services focus on felling trees and getting rid of them safely, but often have specialized contractors on their team that know how to do other things as well. You may have a tree that is covered in poison ivy, necessitating that you spray and kill for the poison ivy as well as removing the tree.
No Need to Be a LumberjackWhen you've got a quality tree service around, there's no need to do things yourself or worry about a damaged tree falling. Instead, you can call someone like Stop, Chop, and Drop It and get your tree situation and other yard work under control with work done by a professional. Not only will you have peace of mind that your damaged trees are gone, but you'll also get free mulch and a cleaner yard. What could really be better?
