Preemptively assessing a tree’s health can save you money and future headaches. Sick or dying trees might look healthy, but a closer inspection can reveal potential hazards to your home and family. A strong storm or a particularly windy day could test the integrity of a weak tree and force it to fall on your or your neighbors’ home, automobile, or other property. Even a small- to medium-size tree can be a handful for the average handyman to tackle with a chainsaw, so make sure you contact a qualified tree removal expert before taking the job on yourself.

More than a benefit to the natural aesthetic of the look of your home, routine tree trimming and pruning protects trees from pollution, bugs, disease, and trunk or root damage. When requesting estimate information from a company you’re dealing with for the first time, don’t hesitate to ask questions. Request an itemized estimate for the entire job and verify whether or not trimmings and debris will be hauled away with the crew or left behind for you to dispose of. This final stage of tree maintenance can add a considerable amount to the overall cost of the job.
