Nearly everyone in Walla Walla, and the Tri-Cities area have trees on their property. Despite this, many homeowners choose not to call a certified arborist until it’s absolutely necessary. While it’s definitely important to hire the services of a tree care professional in an emergency situation, there are a number of reasons to do so year round. Below are some of the top reasons to hire a certified arborist.
DEAD TREES AND LIMBS ARE HAZARDOUS
If you notice a dead or damaged tree on your property, it’s extremely important to hire a tree care professional right away. Although it may not seem like a problem, a falling branch or tree can injure someone or cause substantial damage to your property. A certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care can help determine if a branch or an entire tree needs to be removed. We will remove any hazards in a safe and professional manner so you won’t have to worry about any accidents during the process.
KEEP TREES AND BRANCHES CLEAR OF UTILITY LINES
Another common reason homeowners choose to hire a tree care professional is when a tree begins to interfere with their utility lines. It’s not uncommon for a growing tree to get too close to power lines, which in turn can cause a serious safety hazard. A certified arborist can examine a tree and it’s surroundings and prune any necessary branches. Preventative tree care in terms of trimming can also help to reduce future growth in any direction.
SHADE TREE TRIMMING
Not only do trees provide us with clean air and aesthetic appeal, they also provide us with refreshing shade during the hot summer months. While you may not want to trim the branches of your shade tree, it’s important to have a certified arborist make sure it safe. Pruning can help encourage a tree to develop a strong structure and reduce damage caused by severe weather.
NECESSARY EQUIPMENT & TRAINING
Although tree care may seem like simple work, it’s actually extremely complicated, technical and dangerous. Over the years, many homeowners have been injured or even killed by attempting a DIY tree care job. That’s why hiring a certified arborist should not be taken lightly. At Westcoast Tree Care, our certified arborist has the necessary equipment and training to handle simple to hazardous tree care services.
GENERAL TREE CARE SERVICE & MAINTENANCE
As mentioned above, there are many important reasons to hire a certified arborist no matter what time of the year it is. Doing so will help ensure that the trees on your property are healthy and safe. Broken branches or a dying tree can fall and damage your home or cause injury at any time. Disease can also quickly spread to other trees on your property. Preventative tree care can help ensure your trees are always healthy while helping you avoid any potential problems.
