With the end of summer rapidly approaching and the considerable changes in weather imminent, you might have noticed that one of, or a few, trees on your property are well past their prime and need to be removed. Tree removal is a very important aspect of living in Florida. Aside from being an eyesore, a dead or decaying tree can also be a potential risk to property and people. At Ecopro Tree Service & Outdoor Solutions, we can help. And with that in mind, let us go over why tree removal is so important.

Property Values 

While you might not think about it too often–a decaying tree can significantly decrease the property value of your home if you’re thinking of selling. This also directly applies to the surrounding homes in your neighborhood. Contact the experts to maintain a decent property value and protect your home’s natural aesthetic if you have a decaying tree on your property. 

Safety Hazards 

The change in weather means potential storms. A dead or decaying tree in these circumstances becomes a potential safety hazard. If a tree falls onto your neighbor’s property in an event of a storm and you had previous knowledge of its state of decay–you could be liable for any property damage incurred. 

Take Extra Caution to Avoid Getting “Stumped” 

Perhaps the previous owner of your home had a tree removed but left the stump. This can be an unsightly eyesore and can possibly lead to property damage. If a stump still has a lot of its roots intact, it could still grow. These can obstruct your home’s foundation. This can lead to costly repairs in the future, so it’s best to take care of the stump as soon as possible. 

Don’t Try to Do it Yourself 

A law passed in 2020 made it legal for anyone to cut down and remove a tree without a license or permit, as long as the homeowner obtained written documentation from an arborist or landscape architect. While you might think that doing it yourself and saving money might be a good idea–it isn’t. Tree removal is a complex job requiring an expert’s skilled hands. The last thing you want to do is potentially cause damage to you, your property, or anyone who might be in the immediate vicinity.
