Do You Remove Branches from a Property?
Our tree care services company removes branches from your property whenever we remove them as part of our trimming or pruning services.
Can I Trim and Prune Trees Myself?
You can trim and prune trees yourself, but proper trimming and pruning require a lot of training and knowledge to make the right cuts to preserve the tree’s health. Also, the bigger and more branches a tree has, the more difficult it is to prune. Calling a professional will help you get the best results, and if there are underlying issues, the professional may be able to catch them before major damage has occurred.
Can I Trim My Neighbor’s Tree Hanging Over My Fence?
This is one of the most common of our frequently asked questions about tree trimming and pruning. The answer depends on certain factors regarding the tree’s safety and can vary in different counties or states. However, in general, the following is often the case:
- If your neighbor’s tree poses a hazard and is hanging over your property, notify them immediately and request that they remove it. You may also hire a tree care professional to remove the portion of the tree that specifically overhangs your property.
- If your neighbor’s tree hanging over your property line is deemed non-hazardous, then your neighbor will not likely be deemed negligent. You can trim the overhanging tree branches, but only up to your property line and no further. And all the work must be performed while on your own side of the property line.
Should a Tree Trimming Contractor Be Licensed and Insured?
Yes! For your protection, make sure the tree service company you hire is licensed and insured. If an accident occurs on your property that results in property damage or some type of physical injury, you could be liable if your tree care professional is uninsured.
Stein Tree Service tree specialists are experienced and careful, and we are licensed and insured for our protection and yours.
