Do you have a large tree in your backyard that has not been trimmed in quite some time? If so, it may be worth having a professional come out and trim the branches for you. While you may think that this is not necessary, it could be worth it due to the following reasons.
Branches Hang Over Your House
Your main concern should be any damage that can be caused to your home by a falling branch. Even though you may have home insurance, the damage that can be caused maybe thousands of dollars when you consider that you have to pay a deductible to your insurance company. That damage can leave you with a home that sees significant water damage if the branch falls during a storm, which makes the restoration process complicated.
Branches Hang Over Your Neighbors Yard
If the tree is located on your property, then you are responsible for what happens if a large branch falls onto a neighbor's home. Even a branch that falls and breaks a fence could lead to an expensive repair with a new section of fence that doesn't quite match the rest of it. In addition, the damage that is caused can lead to a bad relationship with your neighbor that will be difficult to repair. Do yourself a favor and trim those large tree branches to avoid a potential conflict.
Branches Hang Over A Utility Line
You do not only have to worry about the damage that a falling branch will cause to property but what it can do to your neighborhood. You do not want to end up with a tree branch that takes down a nearby utility line, which includes electricity, telephone, or Internet service. It can take several days to repair the utility line, which will result in neighbors that know who is responsible.
Branches Hang Over A Yard With Children
You should consider the safety of your children when it comes to large tree branches. The truth is that they can come down for any reason and without warning. If you have kids in your backyard that use the space for playing, it is not worth the risk of having large tree branches looming over an area where they play every single day.
