Tree Removal Due to Winter Storm Damage Should Be Handled by Specialists
While the need for tree care/removal services in Uxbridge and the surrounding area can arise at any time of the year, winter weather conditions throughout the region will often heighten the necessity for such actions. Severe winds, heavy snow, and/or freezing rain can/will conspire to cause extensive damage to trees, neighbouring property, and power lines, in turn posing safety threats to homeowners and their families.
Although some homeowners might be inclined to address any winter-storm tree damage on their own, perhaps as a cost-saving measure, it is highly discouraged for a number of reasons that negate any financial prospective benefits. The potential repercussions from addressing tree damage without proper training, equipment, or expertise would include:
- Impaired tree growth/recovery in the spring due to undue and/or improper pruning
- Additional property damage from incorrect branch cutting or tree felling techniques
- Injury risk – using a chainsaw/working on a ladder without correct safety measures
- Permanent tree damage by applying unnecessary and/or overly-aggressive actions
- Spurring of decay or infestation – incorrect removal/neglect of dead/diseased wood
- Liabilities – voiding damage claims by taking non-approved or not-permitted actions
Based on any and all of these noted concerns, should homeowners in the Uxbridge area experience any tree damage as a result of high winds, snow, and/or ice this winter, they would be well advised to call upon the services of a professional tree removal company, such as DreamWorks Tree Services, to rectify the situation.
