As a business owner, you want to draw people to your business. Because of this, it makes sense to invest in having a beautiful exterior. This is why many business owners choose to plant trees on their property: to give the building a beautiful and welcoming look.
Planting trees is a great idea. However, if you do choose to plant trees outside your business, it’s important that you hire a commercial tree service for your business property, rather than attempting to maintain the trees on your own. If these trees aren’t properly cared for, they can become sick, cause damage to your business property, or grow into an overgrown, unkempt mess. In addition to this, there can even be issues of liability involved if an accident happens due to one of your trees.
You want to have a great reputation and you want to keep clients coming to your office. Here are four reasons why you should invest in commercial tree service for your business property.
Trees Can Become Sick and Die
If the trees aren’t maintained well or frequently enough, they can become sick and potentially die. Having damaged, diseased, and/or dead branches on a tree is not a look that you should be striving for. In fact, it can deter folks from entering your business property altogether.
In most cases, a simple pruning done by a professional will suffice in keeping your trees healthy. If this pruning doesn’t occur and sick/dead branches aren’t removed, disease or infestations can spread to the rest of the tree. In the event that there are pests or abnormal growths on your tree, hiring a commercial tree service to regularly maintain your trees will allow them to get rid of any of these things right away. However, if they go unnoticed for a while, the tree can become severely damaged.
Having sick and dead trees on your property can be a huge liability issue for you as a business owner. If the sick and/or dead branches are not removed from the tree during pruning, they will likely become weak. This can result in them falling off of the tree, potentially causing damage to your building, nearby vehicles, or—even worse—to the people walking nearby.
If someone is hurt due to a branch of one of your trees falling, they can file a liability claim, and you can be responsible for that. As the owner of the property, you could potentially be sued as well. To make sure this doesn’t happen, it’s important to have any branches that are loose—no matter the cause—removed. Trees that are already dead or are dying should also be removed from your property as soon as possible to ensure they don’t weaken to the point of falling.
Additionally, if there is a storm with high winds, unhealthy trees are more likely than healthy trees to fall. By hiring a commercial tree service and having regular maintenance performed, you’re helping to ensure that all of the trees on your property remain healthy and can better withstand such storms.
Better Curb Appeal
As a business owner, you want to do everything you can to attract people to your office and to choose your business. By having a beautifully landscaped property filled with healthy trees, you’re projecting a welcoming feeling to potential clients and especially to new clients who may not know you yet. These people could be attracted to your office by the beauty of the trees.
As we have already mentioned, if your trees aren’t properly taken care of by a professional regularly, they can die, become overgrown, or lose their lush color. This can give the impression your business is messy, unorganized, and unkept. Who would want to do business with someone who doesn’t take care of their property? Furthermore, how can a customer trust they’ll be taken care of if your business property isn’t being taken care of?
By hiring a commercial tree service, you’re guaranteeing your greenery will continue to be alive and fresh. The tree service company will remove all the sick branches and know the best pest control options for your trees. All of this will result in healthier, more beautiful, and longer-lasting trees, which can help attract more business.
It Saves Money in the Long Run
If upkeep isn’t done regularly or correctly, it could be extremely costly for your business in the long run. This is because you’ll have to deal with larger problems that have escalated over time, rather than just taking care of potential small issues from the beginning (or stopping problems from even occurring).
A professional commercial tree service will get to know your trees well. They’ll notice if something looks off—whether it’s due to disease, weather, pests, or anything else. They’ll also be able to rectify this situation right away, rather than it going unnoticed for a long period of time and then escalating into a much larger problem. It’s no secret that larger problems tend to result in larger amounts of money being spent.
For example, if these smaller problems (most of which tend to be normal) aren’t caught right away, tree removal can sometimes become the only solution. Tree removal is more costly than just removing a branch that has been damaged or weakened. Plus, then you’ll have an empty space on your business property that you will have to fill with something else, like a new tree.
There are many great reasons for you as a business owner to invest in a commercial tree service. These folks are professionals who know exactly what to do to make sure your trees are healthy and thriving. Additionally, they know that maintaining these trees isn’t only important, but it’s also critical to businesses, as the threat of liability is there.
