Unfortunately, at times as a homeowner, you may need to make difficult decisions that involve the landscaping and exterior of your home. If you have trees on your lot that pose a significant threat to your property or loved ones or if you find them unsightly, it may be time to consider a tree removal service. Learning why winter may be the ideal time to remove trees from your property can help you find professionals who can assist you along the way.
1. Remove Dormant Trees Much Easier
If you have trees that are dormant in your yard during the winter, such as deciduous trees, the elimination process will likely be much easier. Without active growth or visible leaves, tree removal professionals can pinpoint specific areas to work with that will minimize the risk to your surroundings while expediting the uprooting process itself.
2. Reduce the Risk of a Pest Infestation From Recurring
Pest infestations are more likely to be prevalent and rampant during the warmer months of the year. If you believe the trees on your lot are home to a range of insects or other wildlife, it is often best to tackle the issue head-on during the coldest months of the year. Eliminating trees and stumps that were previously home to pests in the winter can significantly minimize the chance of experiencing a pest infestation in the spring. Always speak with a removal professional beforehand if you believe your trees are home to any type of pest.
3. Improved Access and Visibility
Once the cold months of winter begin to arrive and the leaves on the trees fall away, it will be much easier to access branches and areas of trees that require immediate attention. With clearer visibility, it is much easier for a tree removal expert to pinpoint which trees and shrubs or surrounding foliage in your yard require removal.
4. Streamlined Cleanup
Oftentimes, choosing to remove trees and even tree stumps from a property during the winter months can make the cleanup process much easier, depending on the time of year. When the ground is extremely cold, but not wet or frozen solid, removing leaves, branches, and fallen debris from your surroundings will be much more feasible.
