My family and I live on a very nice block that has beautiful green lawns and a lot of trees. Unfortunately, a couple of nights before, there was a terrible storm and a big part of a tree on our property fell down. Luckily, it didn’t do any damages to our house as there was nothing around it. However, after the storm was over, I noticed that the remaining of the tree was making odd sounds that concerned me as the tree didn’t seem to be very stable. After all, it was a huge storm, so all the worst case scenarios came to my mind.
Since I couldn’t take any chances with my family’s safety, I called an emergency tree removal service so that they could take a look at it and see if it poses any danger. As I assumed, they said that that tree was no longer safe to be standing in our garden as the winds have shaken it from its roots. Naturally, the logical thing to do was remove it. Ah, how I hated to see it gone.
If you remember, about 2 years ago, a man was killed by a falling tree while clearing storm debris – this heartbreaking story was all over the news. To be honest, this scenario was all I could think about while I was wondering what to do with all the debris from the storm in our yard. It is no lie that fallen and damaged trees are a serious safety hazard for people, plus, they can also cause significant property damage. And since I’m all about safety when it comes to my family, I knew that calling an emergency tree removal service was the best thing to do in that case.
The crew that came was very well trained and up to date with the safety practices for emergency tree removal situations. They arrived with all the right tools and equipment necessary to start the work right away. They safely removed the fallen part of the tree and made sure that nothing else was damaged by the storm on our property. After taking care of it, they also checked the conditions of the other trees around and advised us to call them again should we notice something unusual about the trees.
To sum up, from my experience, if you have trees around your house, I highly recommend that you call an expert just so that they can see if they represent any risk for the safety of your property. When trees die or their limbs become weak and rotten, they most certainly pose danger to their surroundings. Also, disturbed tree roots can damage the concrete around your property and even affect its foundation. For that reason, if you notice a change or something weird about a tree surrounding your home, do not hesitate to call a professional to inspect it. You know what they say – better safe than sorry!
