Trimming flowerbeds, grass and other smaller plants is truly a fun and enjoyable thing to do especially if you love gardening. This is probably the primary reason why some property owners opt to get tree trimming done on their own. However, working on trees especially large ones is a totally different case. It is more difficult, requires experience and knowledge, as well as the right tools and equipment.
Why Tree Trimming is Necessary
So why do you need to trim trees in your property anyway? Generally speaking, tree trimming is necessary to keep your trees in great shape. Overgrown trees can be hazardous. Weak branches may fall off. Trimming makes trees healthier too and can assist growth. In addition, trees look more beautiful when regularly maintained.
The Proper Tree Trimming Knowledge
Given the fact that tree trimming is beneficial, it is must be done every year or few years, depending on how fast the tree grows. There are specific seasons needed depending on the type of tree too. Some trees are best trimmed during the spring while others are ideally trimmed during the summer.
You see if trees are trimmed improperly, for instance during the wrong season, it can make way for pests to infest the tree. Trees may also stop growing or bearing flowers and fruits. Worse, a tree may decay or die due to improper or over trimming.
These are only some of the risks of DIY tree trimming on the tree itself. There are also some risks to the person who will attempt to DIY.
The Risks of Tree Trimming
Tree trimming involves climbing up the tree to reach branches that need to be cut. Aside from the proper tools and equipment, the person doing this must know what he’s getting himself into. A step on the wrong branch could result to accidents.
Furthermore, because tree trimming involves removal of branches, it may also pose danger to the surrounding properties. While you can easily move your car or all humans away from the tree, falling branches may damage nearby structures such as your home or your landscaped garden. All these must be kept in mind as an extra precautionary measure.
It is understandable that one would like to save money so they opt to DIY. However, if done incorrectly, tree trimming on your own may cost you even more. You don’t have to spend a whole lot on tree services if you call the right people.
