If only we could save all trees to keep our environment healthy and beautiful, we would. However, there are some trees that need to be removed to make way for new ones. In many cases, tree cutting service is needed not only to have space for new improvements and structures but also to prevent accidents and other tree damages from happening. When a tree is sick, decaying, dead, or already hazardous for any reason, the last resort is to cut it down to guarantee the safety of everything and everyone that surrounds it.
Many people opt to cut down trees on their own. Especially if they’re only dealing with one or two trees within their own property, they feel like they can handle the job easily with an ax or a chainsaw. But it’s not as easy as it seems. More often than not, handling tree removal on your own can lead to further damage and you’re seriously risking your safety, too. If you’re still hesitant in calling a tree contractor, here are only a few of the many reasons tree cutting service should be done by experts.
1. The law requires permits and licenses.
The primary reason you shouldn't risk cutting down a tree on your own even if it’s located within your own property is that you have no choice. The law requires licensed professionals to get this job done in most cases. More importantly, trees are protected by law. In order to cut one down, you would have to secure a permit.
2. Specialty tools and equipment are expensive.
Unless you’re keeping a high-powered chainsaw in your garden shed, then you probably have to buy specialty tools and equipment to cut a tree down. You may also rent some of them when available. Buying or renting would both cost you money that you would better be spent on calling a contractor instead.
3. Safety should be your number 1 priority.
During a tree cutting procedure, safety gear must be worn. The areas surrounding the tree must be cleared. You must also take into consideration its location because cutting it down can potentially damage your property or your neighbor’s when the tree is within such a close vicinity from these areas. Tree contractors know exactly what to do no matter the situation. Best to call them instead of risking for the sake of saving a few bucks.
