Save your trees, Protect your home

Trees provide a lot of benefits to your family and community, from supplying oxygen to the ecosystem to providing food and habitat to birds and animals to increasing the value of your investment properties. With all the environmental, natural, and aesthetic advantages, it is easy for us to overlook the dangers and risks associated with trees near our homes, especially in times of storms and hurricanes.

Without proper preventative care and maintenance, trees can become diseased by pest and insect infestations and other natural causes. It will pose a much greater hazard and risk of falling branches to humans and your property. To ease your pain and worry, we provide simple ways to protect both your property and your trees.

3 ways to protect your home while saving your trees

  1. Plant the right tree in the right place.

Proper decision-making is needed in choosing what type and size of tree should be planted or placed in your backyard. You have to consider whether the space you have will be enough when your desired tree reaches its full growth.

  • Will there still be enough space for your family's outdoor activities? Imagine staying in your backyard full of inappropriate types and sizes of trees with improper spacing provided. It is very uncomfortable and unsafe. Indeed, poor planning may lead to serious danger and harm to your family.
  • Will there be enough room for sunlight for other smaller and nearby trees? If poor tree management is practiced, not enough sunlight can pass through a limited space. Trees will surely become unhealthy.
  1. Remove or relocate your trees near a power pole or line.

You wouldn’t want to compromise your house by ignoring a huge tree located near power poles or lines. Well, there is a big possibility that an extensive fire will destroy your property once an unfortunate event happens. Do not wait for any short circuits, thunderstorms, or heavy winds to wake you up. Remove or relocate trees located near those poles and lines. Because once those poles and lines ignite with fire, dead trees and dying ones may unpredictably burn and severely damage your properties. In the worst-case scenario, injuries and death may arise.

Bear in mind that even if it is not near your home, you may still contact the electric company responsible for power poles to coordinate and ensure that they have knowledge about the situation. Prevention is always better than cure.

  1. Get rid of dead branches and dying limbs.

To benefit both the welfare of your property and the health of your trees, we strongly suggest you get rid of all the dead branches and dying limbs of your trees. Inspect your trees, especially those that are located near your house. As soon as you notice dead or dying branches and limbs, remove them or call a tree specialist to have your work done. Yes, you may think that it is just a simple dried wood, but do not underestimate this dead and dying part of a tree. It is considered one of the most harmful threats that a tree may pose.

Dead branches are already weak. It may fall on a windy day or during a storm. In actuality, these branches may fall at any given moment, destroying your home and property and injuring the lives of your family and community. On the other hand, removing dead and dying branches from a tree will give it so much hope to become a healthier tree. There is also a big chance that this tree will go back to its natural state of growth.
