Tree trimming can be required by some home owner insurance policies depending on proximity to the home owner’s house. Sometimes branches can rub on roofs and power lines causing damage to property. A great way to lower home owner insurance costs is to trim trees near property. Cutting low limbs or dead limbs away from property can save costs and repairs on property. Tree limbs or tree parts can cause damage to property when storms pass through and high gusts of winds can cause trees to break off or tip over. It is common for pine trees to snap off at the mid to top section of the tree these are soft wood and the tree usually has a tap root that secures the tree at the bottom. Pine trees are our most common tree we cut down due to debris , damage and cleaning of the property. Most homeowners do not want the cleanup task of cleaning out gutters and lawn from all the pine straw so they ask us to cut the entire tree down to reduce the amount of maintenance required on the property, plus it lowers costs. Oak trees can cause damage too. Usually when storms pass through and roots get saturated with water and large gusts of wind can cause Oak Trees to tip over, these trees do not have tap roots to keep the tree from tipping over. Another item that can cause problems is diseased trees , diseased trees can have portions of the tree deteriorate or dead limbs to break off and cause damage to anything under the tree.
