Trees can add many benefits to your property. They offer shade, create a lush landscape and can improve the overall beauty and value of your home. Trees are not a hands-off investment, however; even healthy trees require periodic trimming, and sick or dying trees need professional help even more urgently. You might be tempted to care for your trees on your own, but this is a mistake. Read on as we discuss the dangers of DIY tree service.
Risky Ladder Work
You may need to use extension ladders for your tree work, but as experts in tree service, we recommend thinking twice before doing so. Ladders need to extend at least three feet past the branch you will be working on. Do not make the mistake of cutting the end of that particular branch, however, as this will cause the branch to rise beyond the ladder, creating an unsteady base for your ladder.
Without a solid base, you have no assurance that the ladder will be able to support your weight and the tools you’ll be bringing with you. As experienced professionals, we have the proper training to ensure our safety as well as your property’s. When you turn to us for tree service, you can be assured that we prioritize your safety above all else.
Lack of Proper Tools and Knowledge
Tree-care equipment can be quite expensive so some homeowners may resort to subpar tools. Faulty equipment like a dull chainsaw, however, can cause serious accidents. Additionally, lack of knowledge about the tree and its biology can do more harm than good. Tree trimming is a technical task, not something that you can cut corners on. Aimlessly hacking away at your tree with a chainsaw to remove branches in massive sections is dangerous. The weight can make the limbs difficult to control, which can damage the tree.
