When it comes to your home’s exterior, a tall, gorgeous tree is perhaps the best living feature you can include. Not only will it provide you with a refreshingly cool shade under which you can relax all summer long, but a tree is also an amazing curb appeal booster, making your landscape more memorable and adding value to your home. Unfortunately, as all living things, trees also have a limited lifespan, and whether it is due to bad weather, disease, or simply old age, at some point the tree will have to be removed.
When that time comes you’ll be faced with the decision to put the tree out of its misery yourself or call in the experts. But don’t grab that chainsaw just yet! While DIY tree removal might seem like the quickest and cheapest solution, it’s not that simple. For one, do you know whether you are actually allowed to cut down a tree by yourself in your area? According to the Australian law, each state and local council has unique rules concerning the removal of trees. So, think twice and check the rules before you undertake such a delicate task.
Or better yet, why not hire certified tree experts to do it for you? It certainly is the smarter choice considering how trees are tall, heavy, and unpredictable. And you as an average homeowner might not exactly have all the right tools and know-how to do it. So, why put yourself at such a risk? A professional tree service company is equipped with the man power, tools, and knowledge on how to cut down a tree safely and efficiently. The experts will identify the best methods to remove the tree without damaging your property or near powerlines during the process.
Besides safety and expertise, another reason to hire certified tree experts is convenience. Since they use very powerful tools, felling the tree will take significantly less time than if you were to do it yourself. And since felling a tree gets really messy, all that debris will be left in your front yard. But part of the experts’ job is also to dispose of the waste for you, so you can quickly get back to enjoying your clean, serene landscape.
But apart from tree removal, certified tree experts also offer to take care of the stump. A tree stump in your yard is unappealing and can take up a lot of valuable space which you can otherwise use for a flower bed or a small lounging spot. And obviously, it presents a tripping hazard, especially for small children who love to run around the lawn.
