Two situations in which you might want to cut down a tree on your property
There are certain circumstances in which it might be wise to cut down one or more of the trees on your property. Read on to learn more about why you may want to do this.
You're concerned about the possibility of your home being burglarised
If you're like most homeowners, you are probably quite careful about locking your home's ground floor windows but sometimes prefer to keep upper floor ones open, particularly on warm nights when you want to let a breeze in. This is not necessarily a dangerous thing to do, as most burglars would have neither the equipment nor the physical prowess to scale a wall and enter through an upper floor window.
However, if you have a tree located directly outside one of these windows, it would be all too easy for even the most inept of thieves to get into your home, as all they would have to do is climb the tree branches and hop in through an unlocked window.
As such, whilst you might enjoy the shade and the general beauty of a tree positioned outside your or another family member's bedroom window, it would be best to seek out a tree lopping specialist to cut it down, if security is a concern.
You live in an area that is prone to storms
Trees that have succumb to disease or that are simply very old can develop structural weaknesses, which can result in them being more susceptible to collapse when they are exposed to high-speed winds. If during a storm, one of the trees on your property collapses, it could cause serious damage to both your garden and your home.
The force of a large, heavy tree hitting the roof or exterior walls of your house could result in a hole in your roof or your windows being shattered. If this damage occurs during a period of heavy rain, your home may also sustain severe water damage, as these gaps in your roof or windows would allow large amounts of rainwater to seep in.
Additionally, if you or your family members happen to be in the house during this type of incident, you could be severely injured by the tree.
Given this, if you live in a region where heavy storms occur on a regular basis, cutting down trees that lie close to your house could spare you a lot of expense and distress.
