Planting trees, nurturing them, and having to cut down one or more for reasons other than old age can be devastating.
However, most of the time, because of the hazard posed by the tree, you will have to find affordable experts to cut down the tree.
Some of the money saving options available to you includes:
Getting referral coupons
Some of the best tree care service providers give coupons to clients who refer others to their services. With a coupon rate of between 10 and 50%, you will find that you can spend so much less if you will need some tree removal done in your backyard or garden.
By choosing to refer many people to such companies, you will find yourself saving a few bucks. You should therefore look out for tree care companies with effective Referral Compensation Plans.
These are the best to work with because they provide an opportunity for you to give thema budget to work with. For fear of losing a prospective client, you will find these companies giving you the best services within your budget.
Reviews and Testimonials
The best way of saving money on tree removal is by looking through online reviews and comments placed by past clients. By knowing that the company you choose performs satisfactorily well, you will be assured of getting the value from any money paid.
Note that, every time you go for the cheapest available service provider, with a low profile and possible negative reviews, you will spend more getting someone else to finish or correct the mess created later. You may even lose your trees.
Storm damage prevention plan
Some companies offering tree care and removal services understand the threat to life posed by the trees. You will not have to spend a lot the next time there is a bad storm. This is an incredibly good plan if you live in areas prone to floods.
Prevention is better than cure
Is that tree infested with pests and is it overgrown and a weakling? Does it need a little more TLC? You will find that in most cases, tending and extra support to the trees when loose will keep them grounded and there could be no need for removal after all.
To save more money later, invest a little in manure, pesticide and get the trees trimmed early enough to strengthen them. These measures will keep the trees on for a longer period. Paying for permits etc. is costly.
Contact your local power company
The best and the safest way to save up when you need a tree removed are contacting your local power company. This works best when the tree is close to the overhead powerlines.
Place an advert in the local dailies asking for free or cheap tree removal services. Giving a promise of offering free wood is a good incentive.
Some trees are located by the sidewalk and may be affecting the sewer lines. In such cases, you can call your city council office and explain to them the state of things on the ground. They will most likely agree that tree removal is necessary and even get their guys to do the job.
In conclusion, you will spend money on tree care and tree removal, but the costs don’t have to be very high. When it is possible to get away with free services, you can always take them, as long as the whole process is done with safety in mind.
