EPS Landscaping & Tree Service Posts About Tree Removal Service In Winter
January 04, 2022 at 00:24
EPS Landscaping & Tree Service LLC, a landscaping and tree care contractor serving areas near Miami, Florida, has published a blog post that discusses the care and considerations property owners need to take when scheduling tree removal in the winter months.
Tree removal is an invasive procedure that can cause significant damage to the landscaping and existing yard work. If a tree has to be removed along with the stump, the hired contractor will need to dig up the area around the stump to make sure it is properly uprooted without leaving behind any part of the tree’s roots. This can throw a wrench in a property owner’s landscaping plans as they will need to invest time and money in leveling off the ground and restoring it to an acceptable condition to make it look as if the tree that was removed did not exist in the first place. Some scarring and unevenness of the ground will be clearly visible for some time after the tree removal and it will either take laying down fresh sod or manual leveling to make the final result look clean and seamless.
The blog post from Empire Property Services Landscaping notes that winter is a great time for landscaping because the colder conditions greatly reduce the ground damage that accompanies a complete tree removal. When the ground is frozen, the equipment that is used for tree removal along with any branches or logs that hit the ground won’t make nearly as much of an impact as they would have if the conditions were warmer and the soil was softer and easier to breach. Moreover, heavy equipment can be used more easily in the wintertime to access areas where the soft ground wouldn’t let the contractors go during spring or summer.
The blog post then goes on to say that there is another distinct advantage to scheduling a tree removal service in winter. The tree removal contractors usually price their services based on demand and supply. Summer months are a busy time for the industry because most home and property owners find it to be the perfect time to make changes to their yard and hence tree service prices are usually higher. Winter months are slower for them as most people prefer to stay indoors rather than deal with the near-freezing conditions in their front or back yard. This is why it becomes cheaper to avail of tree removal or maintenance services in the winter months as customers can get away with bidding lower prices.
The blog post then lists the conditions under which it is imperative to schedule a tree removal. As a rule of thumb, trees should be pruned, topped, or completely removed if they are a risk to life and property. Winter conditions could bring with them wind, ice, rain, or snow that weakens them and any one of these conditions could be the final reason for the demise of a dead, decaying, or dying tree. Extreme weather can cause trees to become hazards to the lives of those living on the property or using it on a regular basis. Trees can fall under the stress of heavy snow, tree branches can break under the weight of ice, trees can blow over and branches can break during strong winds, and heavy rains saturating the ground can cause trees with shallow roots to fall. The problem of a weakened tree that is susceptible to falling is compounded if it is close to structures such as the house, the garage, parked cars, power lines, or the road.
