Tree Trimming Service: DIY Tree Trimming Horror Stories

In this post, we want to focus on some of the most common mistakes homeowners make when maintaining their trees. It’s our hope that you will realize the advantages of hiring an experienced tree trimming service instead!

Power line dangers

Storm-damaged trees and nearby power lines are a recipe for disaster. Yet we often hear stories about homeowners who get too close to a downed line and end up dying from electrocution. You should never touch a power line or any tree touching a power line for that matter.

Risky heights

Think you’re properly equipped to handle any scope of tree care because you have “the best ladder in the world?” Trust us when we say that a ladder and power tools rarely make for a safe combination. It doesn’t matter if your ladder is several years old or brand-new — if you slip while stretching and straining, you’re likely going to find yourself in a world of hurt.

Chainsaw injuries

Using a chainsaw to cut down a tree requires the utmost precision. But that doesn’t stop inexperienced operators from taking matters into their own hands. Consider the fact that more than 30,000 people are injured in chainsaw accidents every year.

Falling trees

This might be the most obvious DIY tree care risk on this list.
