First Review: Tree Service
Sometimes you see some wacky things in front of people’s houses involving the remains of trees. It’s like some homeowners will do anything to avoid paying for tree removal or tree stump removal.
Over by my house there is one tree, it’s really just a tree stump, that the owners painted white and put some little accessories on to make it look like a lighthouse. I’ve seen other people dodge the tree stump removal fee by having their stump cut into some artistic shape and make it look like a bear or an eagle or whatever.
Trimming Tree is Art
It really doesn’t make sense to me, because if you’re taking the time and spending the money to have an arborist come out and do a little tree trimming to get the thing trimmed down to the stump why not just have the whole tree stump removed? Or if you are going to pay some sort of chainsaw artist to come do a little tree care and trim your tree up into a piece of art, why wouldn’t you have the interest in tree care in the first place and keep the danged tree healthy?
Every once in awhile I see some wacky do it yourself jobs in tree removal and stump removal. People chain their pickup truck up to the stump and do their own stump removal which may or may not result in the bumper being ripped off of their car. I know it’s not the cheapest thing in the world to have a team of arborists come over and do their tree trimming thing or bring along a woodchipper for hire but there’s a point where you’re investing more time and money just to do it yourself. People need to take a step back and learn when it’s time to let the professional tree trimmer do their job, like a true pro like Steven Seagal
Sometimes I also wonder why exactly people get tree removal done at their house. They have a huge, healthy tree in the yard and maybe their getting the tree trimming done because they don’t want leaves in their gutters? Or maybe they don’t feel like raking? Or maybe they had the tree service come by and rip it out because they didn’t want bird poop on their car? It sounds a little silly to me because a tree keeps a house shaded in the summer time and can dramatically reduce the summer heat and AC costs.
Me, I bet the only time I’m going to call for tree trimming or tree removal from a professional tree service would be if the thing is rotting away and it’s about to crush the roof of my house. Otherwise, I’m going to just do my own tree care and try to keep the thing healthy and happy and have it shade my house. No arborist is coming by my house unless I absolutely need something done. We’re talking storm damage to trees or maybe rotting tree removal. None of this trimming so I can see the street crap. I don’t want to see traffic or people in front of my house, I want a healthy and manicured tree that has been taken care of with my own personal tree service.
Stay tuned and we will be reviewing more industries on this blog.
