Ignoring Your Tree Care Can Cost You!
Too often home owners forget to think of their trees as an investment, yet that’s exactly what they are, increasing the value of your property when cared for properly, while offering shade and making your property beautiful.
Every home owner that has trees faces the task of tree trimming and maintaining their yards. It’s part of responsible home ownership. Fallen limbs, damaged or rotting limbs, or aged trees can become a hazard during a storm and even in day to day life. It’s important to ensure your trees are properly cared for and the best way to do that is to hire professionals.
Putting off your tree care is never a good idea as it can both people and property at risk, which can lead to some serious financial risks. Without proper tree care limbs become weak and pose an unknown threat. A licensed, professional tree service expert can spot the damage and give you an estimate so you have a little time to prepare.
Overgrowth of existing trees and landscaping is yet another area of concern. Many times it is the beauty of a property that creates the desire to buy, but far too soon, we discover that maintaining that beautiful landscape that initially drew you there is time consuming and you likely don’t have the proper tools or skills to carry it out correctly. Hire a licensed arborist to assess your trees and landscaping and then provide you with advise to correct the overgrowth problems along with a cost. In this case pleading ignorance is not a good solution. Overgrowth causes many risks to your property and it decreases the value of your home.
You may not be aware that your homeowner’s policy does not cover ‘acts of God,’ which is damage that results from weak or damaged trees. That means you’ll be on the hook for the entire bill if someone gets hurt or your home gets damaged. Just think of the cost of replacing your roof all because you didn’t have your trees maintained regularly and a branch came down. The cost of regular tree care is far more affordable than the cost of an incidence.
