Even though mature trees are sturdy with deep roots, strong winds and soaking rain can cause a tree to fall or drop a big limb. Whether the limb or tree lands on a car, your house, or in the yard, you'll want it removed as soon as possible. Here's a look at having your tree removed after it has been damaged in a storm.
Notify Your Insurance Company First
Your home insurance might pay for tree removal when the tree is damaged by a storm.
As a homeowner, it's important to know how to properly care for the trees growing on your property. When trees aren't well maintained they become a safety hazard and are susceptible to a whole host of tree diseases. Once trees are too dangerous or sick to remain in place, then it is expensive to have them professionally removed.
To proactively care for the trees on your property this summer, here's what you need to know about summer tree trimming.
Trees are marvelous things. They take in so much carbon dioxide that is a waste gas for breathing humans while throwing off all of the oxygen people need. Yet, sometimes trees are in the wrong place when it comes to homes and properties. They can end up costing you thousands of dollars in damages, and the way they do that is pretty sneaky. Knowing how they can cost you money and knowing how to take care of these problems before they arise is very valuable information.
It's a fairly common practice to leave a tree stump in the ground after a tree is cut down. This might be done to save on costs, or because the tree trimmer only cuts down trees and doesn't remove stumps. However, a tree stump detracts from the appearance of your property, so you may debate about whether to remove it. If you buy a home that has one or more tree stumps on the property, having them removed could be at the top of things to do once you move in.
In your household, you may notice that your family experiences allergic symptoms during the seasons with the most growth such as spring and summer. Although you may have over-the-counter allergy medication for your family to use whenever they experience heavy symptoms, you may want to find a more permanent solution.
If you know that most of the allergens come from the doors and windows, you should consider investing in tree service to minimize these allergic problems inside your home.
