If you have tall, old trees on your property, you surely know that they need regular maintenance to ensure that they stay as strong and beautiful as you want them to be and they might also need occasional, extra attention after extreme weather events, such as storms. While DIY tree trimming is surely an option, it is a good solution only for homeowners who are physically fit, not afraid to climb trees and to work at heights and who also have and are able to use the tools and machines necessary for the process. If you are not such an avid DIYer, the best way to give your trees all the ongoing attention that they need is to hire a local tree service company. Here are the most important benefits offered by the affordable, professional tree service Colorado companies offer.
Safety for Your Landscape, Your Building and for Your Household
Large trees are usually old trees, the limbs and branches of which can become weakened diseased or dead. When that happens, the affected branch can fall off, endangering the safety of the people and animals around and potentially causing damage to the structures around. The property features and components that are most at risks when tree limbs fall are the roof the patio.
Your tree trimming service will first of all perform a detailed inspection of your trees, then they will determine which of the trees and which limbs need attention. They will then climb up to the affected branches and will perform the necessary trimming using professional tools and wearing proper safety gear. You can also hire the service to perform regular, at least semi-annual maintenance for your trees.
Tree trimming companies also perform emergency inspections to assess the condition of your trees after they have been hit by a strong storm. They will check your trees one by one and cut off the branches that were damaged by the storm.
Increased Home Value
Your landscape is one of the property features that have the highest impact on determining the value of your property. Professionally trimmed trees and well-kept landscape can increase the value of your home by as much as 30% and beautiful, professionally trimmed and maintained trees can also make a great first impression on your potential buyers. If you are planning to sell your home, that great first impression is very important – homes surrounded by a beautiful landscape are not only more valuable, but they also sell much faster.
Access to Arborists and Landscapists
Tree trimming companies offer tree maintenance services, but they are not landscape artists or arborists themselves. However, tree trimming services collaborate with contractors in related fields, so if you need the services of an arborist to maximize the health of your trees or of a landscapist to help you improve the appearance of your landscape by reorganizing the existing features or by creating new beds, your tree trimming specialist might be able to recommend you the professional you need.
