Trees can add a lot of value to your property. They provide beauty, shade from the hot sun, and insulation from winter’s cold temperatures.

Sadly, however, sometimes trees, especially gum trees around the Gold Coast and Northern NSW regions, must be either trimmed or cut down in order to prevent damage to your home. A fallen tree can cause serious problems, particularly to your roof or your main structure.

If a tree looks to be diseased, it’s important to hire a local Tweed Heads/Gold Coast based professional to come and take a look at it.

In some cases, the company might be able to do a simple trim, and cut away dead or dying branches. Unfortunately in other cases, the tree may be dead and the professional tree trimming company may have to remove the entire tree altogether.

Loose, unstable branches can be very dangerous, particularly in a heavy rain or wind storm. In addition, icy conditions can weigh down the branches, causing them to snap off unexpectedly. When this happens, they can fall onto others walking by, or fall onto your roof. If you hire a professional tree trimming company, they can assess the threat and then remove the branches that may be a potential danger. This will give you peace of mind when the weather changes, knowing that those loose branches won’t cause either physical harm to others, or harm to your property.

If you have a tree that you like but are not sure of any potential threats, you can always ask for a consultation. A professional tree trimmer can come out and take a look at the tree or trees and tell you whether or not they have a chance of collapsing or breaking in a storm. There are several factors they will look at including the size and species of tree, as well as the age. In addition, the angle in which the tree is growing can play a role. If the tree is growing towards the home, it may have a tendency to fall onto it in a serious storm. Unseen factors can include pests or disease that cannot be determined with the naked eye. While you might be attached to a particular tree in your yard, it may pose a threat to your safety and well being. Hiring a professional to take a look and potentially cutting it down is a possibility. You can always replant a new, healthy tree in its place that you can enjoy for many years to come.
