Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

3 Reasons To Hire A Professional To Remove Your Unwanted Trees

by Addison Washington

Do you own a property that has a dying tree located on it? Are you making plans for you and a few friends to get rid of the tree soon? Although this might initially seem like a good idea, there are several reasons why you should instead consider hiring a professional to get rid of the pesky tree on your behalf. Some of the most important reasons why you should let a professional handle the situation include:

Save time: Cutting down a tree can be difficult. If you're unfamiliar with what you're doing, doing it safely can take much longer than you might have anticipated. A medium-sized tree that you might think can be removed in just a couple hours might wind up taking you several days or even weeks to complete. Instead, hire one of your local tree removal services. Their employees have been trained in how to quickly and efficiently cut down and dismantle trees of all sizes. Their skill and knowledge means that your tree will soon be gone and out of the way, freeing up your time for other important things that you need to do.

Save money: To cut down a tree safely and as quickly as possible, you'll need to acquire many pieces of equipment. For a larger tree, you may even need to try to rent a crane or a cherry picker in order to be able to access and remove some of the higher branches. Once you add up the cost of the safety equipment that you'll need to buy or rent, you'll likely discover that hiring one of your local tree removal services would not only be simpler, it would also be less expensive. 

Avoid injury: Even if you and your friends or relatives are very careful about cutting down the tree in question, the activity can still be dangerous. Ropes and chains can break unexpectedly, causing damage to people and property below. If you and your friends or relatives are the ones doing the task, it's possible that one of you could be injured. This could result in your homeowner's insurance premiums going up if the injured party is forced to make a claim against your insurance in order to be treated for his or her injury. But when you hire tree removal services, you'll be able to stay well outside the potential danger zone. If an accident does happen, the tree service employee would be filing a claim against his or her workman's compensation and not against your homeowner's insurance, again saving you money in the long run.
