Why Let a Professional Tree Service Help With After-Storm Cleanup


April 16, 2021

Winter storms can happen long after spring starts in earnest and, when they do, they have a way of damaging all that beautiful new growth popping up in your yard. Though your smaller plants are easy to protect, larger trees can be particularly vulnerable to storm damage. When their branches fall, you have two main choices: clean up after the storm on your own or bring in the pros and let them help. Though cleaning up on your own is certainly possible, it’s always best to let your local tree company and debris removal service provider help. Here’s why.

It’s Safer

Dealing with storm cleanup after a heavy blizzard may seem simple and safe enough to handle on your own. And, on the surface, it is. But storm damage has a way of being far worse than you think. Branches that may look like they’re in good condition can snap unexpectedly. Hazards can lurk underneath snowdrifts and you may not have the equipment to deal with those hazards safely.

When you work with a professional cleanup crew, you won’t have to worry about protecting yourself or your family. The team has the experience and training to assess the situation before they start working. Once they have a plan in place, they’ll be able to remove the hazards and pick up debris without hurting themselves or damaging your property. You’ll be able to leave them to the task without putting your safety at risk.

Pros Can Inspect Your Trees

Cleaning up debris is just one part of the cleanup process. All that debris came from your plants and that means the damage to your shrubs and trees can range from virtually non-existent to severe. Unfortunately, mild to moderate damage can be almost impossible to spot unless you know what you’re looking for. If you miss that damage and let the trees continue growing untreated, you risk putting the rest of the tree at risk.

Damaged limbs invite pests and plant diseases that can wreak havoc on the healthy parts of the tree over time When you let a professional clean up after storms, you’ll never have to worry about missing minor damage. They know what to look for and will take the time to inspect each tree and shrub on your property. If they find any damage, they’ll be able to come up with a damage mitigation plan to get your trees back in good shape for the rest of the growing season. Less risk of damage and disease means your trees will be able to grow and thrive for years to come.

They’ll Know What Can Be Saved

If you’re like most homeowners, you’re attached to the trees on your property. They add major value to your home and make the property stand out from others on the block. Unfortunately, this often means you’ll turn a blind eye to trees that can’t be saved just because you’ve loved having them on the property. That may be fine in the short term, but over time, leaving trees that can’t be saved puts the rest of your landscaping at risk. 

Working with a cleanup crew from your local tree service will help you keep the rest of your trees and landscaping safe. They’ll know which damaged trees can be saved and how to save them. If there are trees that can’t rebound, they’ll be able to remove them the right way. That means you won’t have to deal with troublesome stumps and tripping hazards around your yard. Even better, they can help you figure out what trees will work best on your property to replace the damaged ones.

Cleanup Will Happen Faster

Severe storms can leave a lot of debris in their wake. And that’s debris you have to pick up before your yard can get back to normal. Even under the best circumstances, the process can take hours if not days. That’s time that you could otherwise spend making improvements around your house or spending time with the people you love. 

By leaving the cleanup to an experienced team, you’ll make sure your yard gets back to normal far faster. They’ll be done in a matter of hours for most yards, and you’ll get your property and your yard back quickly. That means you won’t have to waste weekends trying to pick up after the storm.

You Won’t Have to Be at Home

You have a busy life. There are errands to run and things you need to do to stay on top of your schedule. You don’t have time to deal with cleaning up after a storm and you might not have the ability to meet with cleaning crews during your busy workday. When you hire professionals, you won’t have to. They’ll be able to get the job done whether you’re at home or away. 

You Won’t Get Fined by Your HOA

Believe it or not, leaving plant debris strewn around your yard and property is one of the fastest ways to get fined by your homeowners’ association. They expect you to keep your yard in good condition at all times. That means you won’t be able to take your time picking up after one of the Denver area’s famous near-summer blizzards. 

Worse, those fines don’t come cheap. They can charge you an arm and a leg just because you took too long picking things up. When you schedule a cleanup appointment with your tree service, you’ll be ahead of your HOA. Your yard will be back in pristine condition quickly and they won’t have anything to complain about.
