Residential home damage caused by trees falling on roof, a result of the high velocity winds of Hurricane

Ignoring Tree Care Could Cost You A Lot

If you’ve been thinking about getting tree care but have decided to put it off, you might want to think again. Tree care does come at a cost, but it can result in a much safer environment. Plus, if you ignore tree care, you could potentially find yourself dealing with much bigger expenses and unfortunate situations.

Potential Problems

When trees are neglected, they may end up causing all sorts of issues. The entire tree, if it’s not healthy, could topple over at any point. Depending on its location, it could damage your fencing, landscaping, vehicles, or a part of your home. The biggest risk would be if it fell on a person, and obviously, none of us ever want this to happen. Even if just a branch falls, there could be significant damage. The cost of repairing a vehicle, roof, or window could be quite considerable when you consider everything that needs to be done.

Aside from all of this, there is a legal aspect to take into consideration. If a tree or a limb falls on a neighbor’s property or injures one of your visitors, you may be legally responsible and will have to deal with a lot of paperwork, in addition to potentially having to pay for the bills.

It’s true that trees and their branches can fall at any moment. However, it is much more likely for diseased or damaged trees to come down when we experience severe weather. Here in Columbia, we see a fair amount of extreme conditions that could involve strong winds or heavy rains. When a storm comes our way, you really don’t want to be worrying about a tree coming down on your property.
