Lopping back the trees

I really like how shady our yard is, but I'm not so excited about cleaning up everything that drops off the trees. I can't pick the fruit from the very top of the trees, so it rots and falls to the ground, and then it attracts mice and birds unless I clean it up straight away. I'm getting the trees all lopped back so I can get a break from all the cleaning up all this fallen fruit. This blog is all about how to get your backyard fruit trees lopped so that you don't have to clean up as much fallen fruit.

Why You May Require Tree Removal on Your Property

Kenneth Kim

Generally, homeowners would be happy to have a tree on their property. Not only do trees improve on the overall oxygen supply, but they can also enhance the curb appeal with their majestic beauty. However, as trees age and become large and elderly, they can be a source of an array of problems. This is why it is not uncommon to require tree removal services. Here are some of the reasons why you may need to consider tree removal on your property.

Tree removal will ensure safety on your property

As a tree becomes older and starts growing haphazardly, it can pose a serious threat to both your property as well as your loved ones. Unhealthy branches that are overgrown can easily break during stormy weather, and cause damage to electrical lines, windows, your home's cladding, cars and more. Weak branches can also pose a risk to anybody who may be walking beneath the tree, making you susceptible to paying medical bills that you had not planned for. One option you could consider would be regular trimming and pruning of your tree to ensure that the weak branches do not fall off on their own. Nevertheless, if you are not in a position to ensure regular tree servicing, your best bet may be opting for tree removal to eliminate the hazard altogether.

Tree removal will prevent overgrowing roots

When it comes to tree growth, homeowners usually concern themselves with branches that may start becoming an inconvenience on their property. However, this is not the only part of the tree that is growing. The roots of your tree can also cause potential hazards on your property, especially if you have a large, old tree. Overgrown roots can penetrate the foundation of your residence, which in turn will weaken the entire structure of the building.  The overgrown roots can also make their way into sewer lines and other underground plumbing mechanisms. Since roots cannot be pruned and trimmed like overgrown branches, you may want to consider tree removal to ensure that your property is not developing undetected damage from your tree.

Tree removal will enhance the aesthetics of your yard

When a tree becomes overgrown with overhanging branches and excessive leaves, it becomes more of an eyesore rather than an element of visual interest on your property. In addition to this, the larger the overgrown tree, the less sunlight that will permeate its canopy, leaving your yard looking dark and bleak. If you are tired of constantly trimming the tree to let natural light onto your property, you should consider tree removal.
