Denver Tree Service: When You Need More Than DIY


February 1, 2019

If you are like many people, you enjoy the trees in your yard and appreciate their beauty, but you might not know too much about tree maintenance. You can probably take care of some of the basics yourself, such as removing an errant branch or making sure to knock off heavy snow before it harms the tree. But how do you when it’s time to call a company that offers professional tree service in Denver? Chances are, if you are unsure about how to handle something, it’s best to reach out to the pros who know trees. 
Let’s take a look at some situations where it’s probably best to call a professional service rather than try to do-it-yourself. 

Your Tree Is Growing Out of Control

If you have a tree that is too close to your home or your neighbor’s home for comfort, it’s time to call in a professional to have it trimmed. If heavy tree branch falls onto a building, there can be severe damage—not to mention someone could get hurt if they are in the wrong place and the wrong time. Preventive maintenance to ensure this doesn’t happen is best left to the pros.

You Don’t Have the Proper Equipment for the Job

Most homeowners don’t have all the professional equipment the tree pros have. Pole saws, clippers, handsaws, and shears are at our disposal to ensure that trees are trimmed or removed properly. If you don’t have the right tools, you can damage a tree—or you could even harm yourself while trying to do the job. Calling in a professional not only means the right equipment will be used to do the job properly, but you will also benefit from their experience and training.

You Need to Remove a Tree

Tree removal can be tricky—especially if it’s a large tree. You might think you can handle tree removal yourself, but you probably aren’t thinking about how the roots can be entangled with cables and pipes below the ground. You can easily cause a lot of damage by trying to remove a tree yourself in this situation. (Read this article to see how tree roots can actually grow into pipes, depending on what they are made of.)

Your Tree Is Close to Powerlines

You should never try to trim a tree that is growing close to powerlines by yourself. You could not only cause an electrical outage if the tree makes contact with the powerline, but you could also get electrocuted. This is never a good DIY situation; call the pros and keep yourself safe!
