Beneath the Trees: A Tree Care Website

Have you ever visited a yard where the trees were bright green, magnificent, and oh-so lush? Did you find yourself wishing that your trees could look the same way? They can. They simply need the proper care. On this website, you will learn what that proper care entails. A lot of it comes down to proper trimming, but certain trees also thrive with fertilizer, extra water, or some wood mulch around their base. You'll also learn a bit about tree care companies and the services they provide, which will come in handy if you don't have the skills or equipment to do your own tree care.



Who To Call When You Have An Unsafe Tree In Your Yard

Trees are great to have around your home, but there are times when they can become unstable and present a safety problem. When dealing with a tree that might be a concern, it is often best to have a tree removal service assess the tree's health and recommend a course of action for dealing with it.

Safety Issues

Large trees often spread out over the roofs of houses, and even when not touching the building, they can be a huge concern. When a tree gets too big, the branches often become heavy. If one breaks free and lands on the roof of the house, the building may not support the weight.

The damage can be limited to shingles or roofing materials, but if the limb is heavy enough, it could put a hole in the roof, damage the trusses, and even cause the walls in the home to shift. For a limb to do that much damage, it would need to be very heavy, but it is not uncommon for large old-growth trees to have branches big enough to cause this type of damage. 

A tree removal service can remove the branches hanging over the house to help protect it if the tree is healthy. However, if the tree is not, cutting it back may not provide the protection you need. 

Tree Health

Old trees that are not still strong and well rooted can turn over or fall in a storm or when least expected. Removing the tree from the property may be the last resort for the homeowner, but if the tree removal service finds the tree's strength in question, that is often the recommendation. 

Cutting and removing a tree that could fall is often the best way to avoid a bad situation. If the tree comes down in the wrong spot, it could hit your home, the power lines, or a car or garage nearby. Having a tree removal service cut and remove the tree to avoid problems can help ensure nothing is damaged. You may want to replace the tree with several smaller ones in areas better suited to their growth and development after the older one is gone. 

Most tree removal services will use a boom truck or crane to tether the tree. When they cut the trunk loose near the ground, the crane can lift the tree and move it without hitting anything and put it in a spot that allows them to safely cut and remove the sections.

Using a professional service for this work is crucial and will help ensure the tree comes down without any issues. Often the tree service will cut the tree up and leave the wood if you want it, or they can haul it away.
