Tree Services That Protect Your Home And Yard

Construction & Contractors Blog

Tree service companies offer many more benefits than just cutting down trees so you don't have to rake as many leaves. Trees need to be trimmed, maintained and removed for a variety of reasons.

1. Septic Pipe Protection

Tree roots are part of a living organism that is designed by nature to seek out the water it needs to thrive. If the nearest underground water source happens to be inside your septic pipes, the roots are going to find a way to get at it. Typically, tree roots will make their way in where there is a pipe connection. Pipe connections are the weakest points in a pipe. If your septic system is backed up, it could be because a tree root is growing inside the pipe, blocking waste from flowing through.

Once the problem has been diagnosed by a septic tank professional, the tree service company can come out and remedy the problem. They may be able to isolate, sever and remove the offending root or they may have to remove the entire tree, depending on the specifics of the situation.

2. Roof Protection

If you hear scraping on your roof on windy days and nights, you may have more to worry about then being afraid of the spooky sound. Tree branches can loosen or break roof shingles, which in turn can lead to a leaky roof.

If you have low-hanging tree branches near your house, consider having a tree service company come out to trim your trees. Not only will the tree look better, but the integrity of your roof will be better protected.

3. Insect Infestation Protection

Trees are susceptible to insect infestation just as the rest of the flora in your yard. Tree insect infestation can wreak havoc on the health of your tree. In certain instances, it's possible that insects can kill the tree, causing it to rot from the inside out. This can result in a dead tree that could fall at any time.

Insect infestation isn't always detectable to the average person. That's why it's important to have your trees inspected on a regular basis by a professional tree technician. They will be able to spray the tree with insecticide to prevent or stop insect infestation from endangering your trees.

If you have trees in your yard, you should have the number of a tree service specialist, such as Smitty's Tree Service Inc, in your personal phone book. When your trees are healthy, your home and land are healthier, too.
