When snow falls in Medford, most residents are too distracted by the novelty to consider all of the implications of such snow. Unexpected precipitation in the winter can lead to limited visibility, slippery roads, and the potential for expensive, extreme amounts of damage to your home or vehicle. Not from the snow itself, but rather due to a fallen tree. Trees are like any other plant-life, they can become sick, they can grow weak, and they can even die. Unfortunately, the exact status of a tree can be difficult to diagnose at a glance. If a dead tree receives a little too much snow on its branches, that might be just the push it needs to fall over, crashing into your home or onto your driveway in the process.
Here are a few other reasons why you should your tree removal scheduled over the winter:
- Less of a Mess
Winter is the ideal time to rid your property of any potentially dangerous dead or damaged trees.
Not only is tree removal during this time of year helpful in protecting your property, but it’s also cleaner and more efficient. Due to the lack of leaf growth in the winter months, you don’t have to worry about excessive amounts of debris getting in the way.
- Increased Safety
The reduced weight from the lack of a canopy also means that professionals are able to better control where the tree falls, making it a much safer process for everyone involved.
- Reduced Disruption to Other Plant Life
Trees are an integral part of your yard, as the roots dig deep underground. As such, removing a tree can be extremely disruptive to the plants and soil around it. When temperatures drip, most plants around become dormant and the soil hardens, making it more able to withstand the impact of tree removal.
