No matter which direction they’re growing in, it’s important to know what to do and when to take action when those limbs get a little bit too close for comfort.
- Branches can scrape against roof shingles and strip of layers of asphalt.
- Leaves can fall into a gutter. That can mean mold, roof deterioration and even leaks.
- Branches can fall on your home – particularly if they’re infested or damaged
While it’s always good to be conscientious about trees on your property – there are a wide range of reasons why trees tend to creep into areas of your property that they shouldn’t. Most of them honestly have nothing to do with you or a poor decision. More often than not, trees just grow – and that’s not a bad thing.
So what should you do if your branches are getting too big for their britches? Well, it’s time to trim them back – or if necessary, remove them from the tree altogether.
Anytime a branch is hanging over something important – like a roof, for example – it should already be considered dangerous. One wrong snip and the branch could fall. That could do serious damage to your property or even you. And getting to the branch? That requires you on a ladder – which in and of itself is dangerous.
Simply put, trimming tree limbs that are resting over property or your roof is risky business. Making a mistake? That’ll prove to be incredibly costly. While minor branches are do-able, you should leave any kind of robust branches to a pro that knows what they’re doing.
We say that in a lot of blogs, but in this particular case – it really rings true. More often than not – you have a ladder and whatever you’re hoping to do the cutting with. We have rigs, machines and tools that can get the job done professionally, quickly and cleanly. Some removals are pretty quick jobs, even. We’ll make sure the cut’s clean, the fall of the branch is clean and that your yard looks clean.
Long story, short – it’s worth the money to get it done right – and most importantly – safely.
