3 Reasons To Trim Or Remove Tree Branches: Avoid Danger

Posted on: 20 January 2015

If you have large or old trees on your property and you are worried about branches that look dead, hire professionals to trim and remove the risks before something terrible happens. There are a lot of different things that can occur when a homeowner doesn't take care of the trees on their property, and you don't want to end up living with the negative effects of a fallen tree branch. Here are three reasons to call the experts.

Insurance May Not Cover Damages

If the tree branches are rotting and it's easy to tell that they have been neglected, your homeowners insurance company, or auto coverage provider may not cover the costs of damages to your home or vehicle. The insurance provider can say it was your fault there was damage.

They also may not cover the cost of damage that occurs to a neighbor's home or car. This could leave you with thousands of dollars of debt. Get the trees taken care of to show you were responsible with the care of your property, in case a storm does do severe damage.

Fallen Power Lines and Danger

Tree branches that are overgrown, rotting or ready to fall can often interfere with power lines. A damaged power line that falls down on your home can start a fire. If someone accidentally comes in contact with the power line, it can cause electrocution and even death. The branches could also cause electrical problems for not only your home, but to the main power source in the area where you live.

Tree Branches Kill

There are dozens of people that die each year in America because of fallen tree branches. You don't want to be one of these statistics, and you don't want to be responsible for the death of others because you didn't want to take the time or spend the money to properly groom your trees.

The professional tree trimming and removal company (such as Smitty's Tree Service Inc) is going to use the property machinery and tools to remove all of the vegetation carefully, and they are going to be liable for the work that they do. They are going to remove all of the debris that is associated with removing the tree branch, and you don't have to worry about doing a thing. Don't make your home, the people occupy it, and your neighbors at the risk of dealing with a life-threatening accident, and get your trees taken care of.
