Don't make the mistake of ignoring any diseased or oversized tree that is on your property. If you have plants that no longer seem to fit or can cause some damage in the wrong situation, hire a tree trimming service to get rid of it properly. Being a homeowner means that you have a legal obligation to protect your home, those who reside within and your neighbor's property; and to keep it safe from any injury or damage that can result from any trees that are on your property. Everyone knows that acts of God and accidents do happen, however, if an incident was to occur and it was in your control; you could be liable for any damages and lawsuits that arise from the situation. Homeowners’ insurance only covers certain situations and acts of God. If you file a claim for anything resulting from an overgrown tree on your property, you are going to be dangling like a worm on a hook. Save yourself the trouble and hire a tree trimming company.
Tree trimming companies are not as expensive as you may think. You may feel that it would be a lot easier and more cost-effective if you take care of the tree and chop it down yourself. That is not a route you want to take, since do it yourself tree removal is one of the most hazardous and dangerous homeowner landscaping tasks around. Not only are you not certified, trained or insured for such a task, but you could also wind up in the hospital. It only takes a tree trimming company a short amount of time to remove any shrubbery that is causing a violation.
Plants can cause homeowners a ton of grief if they are left to grow unrestrained. Since plants often have a long life, the amount of damage they can cause in your life can be quite expensive. For example, a tree's roots can grow so long and deep that they can interfere with your plumbing and sewer lines. Those same roots can also cause problems with your home's foundation. And if some strong winds and storms were to occur, the branches could fall and cause damage to any property that is within the vicinity of the tree. Who wants to be responsible for damage to their home, let alone anyone else's?
Plants can often become sick after getting so big and old and still appear to be structurally sound. Many times, just because a big shrub looks like it is sturdy and firmly rooted doesn't mean that it is. It could barely hang on and when some event happens that is strong enough to cause it to move, anyone can yell "timber" and down it comes.
Stay on the safe side and do yourself a favor by hiring the professionals to get the job done. Not only will they get it done right, but they will also have it done in a manner that doesn't cause any problems or hazards to anyone's safety or property. If you want to use the best you have to hire the best. This means that any tree trimming service you use must be licensed, bonded and experienced. If they are not, you are only wasting your time and money.
