Many people are tempted to undertake tree trimming removal tasks on their own. However, it may be a bad idea to forego tree removal experts and handle the job yourself. We cannot stress enough that tree trimming is not as simple as taking a chainsaw to branches and limbs. A lot of things can go wrong.
This post will highlight four reasons for you to invest in tree removal experts.
Falling Twigs, Branches, and Trees
The foremost reason why you should hire experts is to mitigate the danger of falling branches, twigs and the tree itself. There are many homeowners that have a heavy limb crashing in through their picture windows, or falling on roofs and cars. Your endeavor may result in extensive damage. The money you save on not calling professionals is just not worth the risk.
You May Fall
Falling branches is not the only concern. One wrong step and you may find yourself on the quick route to the nearest hospital. You may damage your knee, hurt your back or hit your head if you are not careful. And, the problem is not just with large trees. A potential tumble from a young tree could be lethal if you land on a sharp branch or your neck.
Even the most careful tree fellers are not absolutely ready for the dangers that can accompany tree felling. However, tree maintenance technicians, like us anticipate these dangers and are better prepared to handle them.
Risk of Electrocution
Running into electrical lines is a major risk. This is something that even we are careful about. Most large trees have power lines hidden behind or inside branches. This is among thick bramble. You do not want to experience firsthand what chainsaw blade can do to electrical lines. Results are severe from being knocked out flat to burning and disfigurement.
Professionals always take necessary precautions before trimming a tree. For instance, we check a tree thoroughly for hidden power lines and shut off the lines at source before attempting to chop it down.
You may know your way around a chainsaw and other tools with both feet planted firmly on the ground. However, the story is quite different when you are hanging on a branch. You could end up seriously hurting yourself without necessary protective equipment. Remember that accidents never tell and happen. We use sophisticated wood chippers, chainsaw mechanisms, and cranes while felling large trees.
We also have protective outfit designed specifically for tree removal experts. This is to help ensure that no tool accidents take place. Sometimes, it is best to let the professionals handle certain jobs if you want it done safely.
