With the recent large amounts of rain and wind each afternoon, it is a good time to make sure any tree limbs are pruned off. High winds can cause a limb to become a projectile and possibly do damage. It is usually better to be proactive in this case to avoid the limb perhaps landing where you don’t want it to.

Tree trimming can be done on small limbs and trees but don’t try to tackle large ones yourself. There are too many cases of people trying to cut a large limb or tree and either hurting them or others or damaging property. Large limbs and trees can twist and turn in unexpected ways and many people have been killed doing what appeared to be a simple job.

Tree trimming is one thing you should consider hiring a professional tree surgeon for. Make sure you have them provide proof of current liability insurance. A reputable company should have no problem doing that as it will separate the Pro’s from the Joe’s.
