One of the aspects of tree care is how you take care of them and how often. Tree projects require many steps that need to be taken to ensure good tree health. Keeping trees trimmed comes with many different benefits. Such as improving the potential growth of the tree, improving overall health and also removing anything damaged. But the question is, do you do it yourself or do you hire a professional?
The topic we feel is the most important to discuss and can be the most critical, is safety. Trimming or removing trees can be extremely dangerous if not done with proper care and knowledge. We as professionals have the proper training, equipment and the proper safety training to limit the possible instances of injury or getting into unsafe situations.
Another aspect that you should consider when attempting to preform your own tree projects, is equipment. To ensure that you are able to safely trim or remove a tree, the proper equipment is critical. Without it, you could find yourself in a very unsafe position. Not to mention that you may not be able to complete certain parts of the project due to the lack of tools. Cost is another factor to consider when preforming your own tree work. Rental costs can get very expensive and may end up costing you the same as if you had hired a professional tree service.
Something to also consider is that each type of tree has its own requirements for proper tree health. The age of the tree as well as the condition should also be a consideration before doing any trimming. If you are untrained in this line of work, spotting the different types of trees, as well as performing the best type of pruning to ensure proper care to the specific species may become challenging.
