There's little question that having multiple trees throughout your business's property is highly appealing. In addition to providing shade and privacy, they simply augment the overall look of your location and make it more pleasant for customers to visit. Unfortunately, there may come a time that you need to seriously think about having one of your trees cut down. While a tree that sustains serious damage due to winds, ice, or weight from the snow is a good candidate to have cut down, there are a number of other reasons that you'll want to contact a commercial tree service and book a crew to remove a tree for you. Here are some scenarios.
The Tree Is Causing Issues With A Neighbor
Sometimes, trees that grow along the edge of one business's property can lead to disagreements with a neighboring business. For example, a tree that sheds its leaves in the fall may make a mess around another business. While the average easygoing person might not mind such an issue, a problematic neighbor may complain about the leaves incessantly. Additionally, if you have birds living in the tree, they may leave droppings on the neighbor's customers' cars — once again, leading to another disagreement. Unfortunately, one of the simplest solutions when you're faced with such a difficult situation is to have the tree removed.
The Tree Is Diseased
Occasionally, you'll see something odd about the appearance of one of your trees and call a tree service to find out more. If the tree experts who visit your property break the bad news that a tree is diseased, it might need to be removed. Tree diseases can be problematic because they can eventually kill the tree — and this can leave the tree at risk of having branches break off and potentially damage your business or seriously injure a customer or employee. Additionally, the disease may possibly spread to other trees on your property. By removing the affected tree promptly, you may be able to save the other trees.
The Tree Is Affecting Your Building
In some cases, a tree that grows too closely to your business may cause problems. For example, its shade could leave the building's roof damp, allowing for the growth of moss that shortens the lifespan of your shingles. Or, the branches could block your gutters and affect drainage. While trimming may help the problem, the best long-term move may be to call a commercial tree service to cut down the tree.
