Safe, Injury-Free Tree Maintenance: Tips for DIY Work

Welcome to my blog. My name is Kerry, and I love to do DIY work around the home. While painting high ceilings and putting in garden beds seems to be easy for me, I find climbing into a tree with a saw to trim branches very scary and potentially dangerous. Luckily, over the years, I have gotten past the fear and have found ways to service my trees safely and efficiently without risking grave injury to myself. Sometimes, I admit that I have to call in the pros, but I'll help you identify when that's a necessity as well. Take a look at these posts. I hope they move, entertain and inform you.

When Should You Work With Tree Removalists?


Trees are one of the plants that a majority of homeowners want on their property. Not only do trees keep your yard cool, but they also enliven your property, which can enhance your property value. Nevertheless, trees can also prove to be an inconvenience or even hazardous! When trees are overgrown, they can quickly overrun your property; this is when most people consider hiring a tree removalist to remove them. But tree removal is not simply about getting rid of trees that you no longer want merely for aesthetic reasons. This piece looks at a few of the scenarios when you should deliberate on working with tree removalists

Hire tree removalists to eliminate a diseased tree

Unless you have a green thumb, chances are you may not be aware of the symptoms indicating the decline of your trees' health. And if you do not spot these signs in good time, there is a high likelihood of the disease spreading, which will compromise the integrity of the entire tree. Keep in mind that the more diseased a tree gets, the higher the chances that limbs will fall off spontaneously, and these branches can cause property damage and even injury. 

So what are some of the signs to be on the lookout for? When you notice changes such as discolouration of your tree or growths on the bark and the branches, it is advisable to call on a tree removalist so that they can determine if the tree can be saved or if it will be best to have it removed.

Hire tree removalists for routine inspections

Trees are usually left alone since homeowners assume that as long as the tee looks stable, then it must be healthy. The problem with this presumption is that any structural issues with your tree may end up going unnoticed for the long term. As a result, there is a growing threat to your loved ones and your home, but you remain unaware of this impending risk. If you are not an arborist, you are not qualified to carry out these assessments. Therefore, it is important to hire tree removalist services from time to time so that they can inspect the health of your trees and identify any possible threats that need to be addressed.

Hire tree removalists for a fallen tree

In the event that a tree falls on your property, you could be thinking of simply hacking it down into smaller pieces on your own and utilising the lumber for your personal needs. While this may seem like a cost-efficient solution, the truth is that it is a tedious process. Not to mention the added expense of renting or buying the right equipment. If you have a fallen tree, it is imperative to hire a tree removalist to take care of this problem for you.
