Trees are not only great for the environment, but they also increase your property’s value and curb appeal. However, you need to perform routine care and maintenance, such as pruning and watering, to ensure you realize these benefits. Occasionally, removing a tree with the help of professional tree services is the best course of action. If you have dead or infected trees in your yard, removing them before winter is a good idea for various reasons. Here are four to consider.

1. Enhanced Safety

While you can take measures to prevent trees from dying, such as hiring an arborist for routine maintenance, it sometimes just isn’t enough. When a tree shows signs of dying, the best course of action is to have it removed. A dead tree loses its strength, which can be dangerous in winter’s harsh conditions.

If weak or dead trees aren’t promptly removed, rain, heavy snowfall, and thunderstorms can easily break, causing them to topple over, drop large branches, and pose various risks to people and structures. Tree removal before winter will take care of this issue. Call professional tree services immediately, especially if there are power lines nearby.

2. Poor Planting

If you’ve just moved into a new home, you may realize that the previous owner didn’t put much thought into the arrangement of trees. They may be tightly clustered together or follow a strange pattern. We understand that you may be hesitant about having tree removal done, but you’ll need to pick out a few of the crowded trees and have them removed to maintain the health of the others. If you fail to do so, the trees won’t get enough nutrients to survive through winter.

3. Too Close

Your home’s presence won’t cause the roots of your trees to change course or stop growing. They’ll continue to push through it. The roots might eventually harm your plumbing and utility lines if you allow them to grow long enough. This can cause severe problems during winter’s cold temperatures. Call in professional tree services to handle the situation before it gets worse.

4. Damaged Trees

Tree damage can occur due to storms, high winds, or construction. Damaged trees can become a safety hazard if left alone, especially during winter. If a tree has compromised branches or the trunk is damaged, you need to have it removed by professional tree services.

According to IBIS World, the market for tree trimming services in terms of revenue is worth $29.1 billion in 2022. More homeowners are realizing the benefits of contracting professionals for tree services. Tree removal is especially beneficial before winter.
