Three Reasons Why You Should Leave Tree Removal and Stump Grinding to Professionals

Three Reasons Why You Should Leave Tree Removal and Stump Grinding to Professionals

When you turn on the TV, you will often see commercials for home improvement stores promoting the idea of do-it-yourself projects, making the homeowner feel they can tackle any project with just a few tools and some elbow grease. While this DIY mentality may be great for tackling basic home repairs or craft projects, there are some lawn and tree care projects that simply should not be performed by homeowners. For example, tree removal and stump grinding are always jobs best left to tree care professionals, for three main reasons:

First, tree removal and stump grinding are extremely dangerous projects, and most homeowners do not have the safety training, specialized equipment or physical ability to handle these on their own or even with a couple friends. A homeowner might not be aware of how to properly cut down a tree without risking injury to themselves or their surrounding property, whereas a professional tree care company like Embark Services employs Certified Arborists who excel at precise and safe tree removal and stump grinding. Below are video examples of the dangers involved in tree removal:

Second, tree removal involves a large amount of tree debris and large limbs to dispose of, which many trash collectors will not pick up. Most homeowners have to either wait for heavy trash pickup or find some other way to haul off their tree debris, which can lead to a lot of wasted time and energy, not to mention the risk in cutting the many large limbs and branches using dangerous machinery. The tree removal services offered by Embark Services include tree debris removal in a prompt, efficient and safe manner.

Finally, homeowners who opt for tree removal often will also want stump grinding as well to eliminate unsightly tree stumps from their yards and to allow for future landscape projects over that same tract of space. However, stump grinding also involves very specialized machinery and can come with a high degree of risk to the homeowner. Renting a stump grinder and trying to figure out how to use it yourself can be a daunting task, as you have to know which stump grinder size is needed for your tree, how to operate the grinder correctly and safely, how to protect yourself and the surrounding property from any additional damage, and you still have to clean up the stump debris shavings. Needless to say, hiring the Certified Arborists at Embark Services is your best bet for your tree removal and stump grinding needs.
