Whether you admit it or not, trees probably are the least of your concerns when trying to establish your commercial property. Regardless if it is a restaurant, a factory, or a medical facility, you focus more on the standards, not knowing that you are missing one crucial aspect, which is tree care. Unfortunately for some, they realize its importance too late, when a tree has already fallen onto their parking area.
Don’t wait for anything worse to happen. Make sure to schedule regular tree maintenance on your commercial property to avoid the risk of falling limbs and other tree-associated issues that can disrupt your business.
Lower Your Risk of Pest Problems
Issues with pests are one of a business owner’s worst enemies. How do these pests get to the commercial property? You got that right- through the landscape. Branches and limbs that touch the roof of the property make it easy for rats and squirrels to enter your facility. Birds that find refuge on your trees can find holes in your roof to eat the bugs that live in your property.
Commercial tree care will ensure that these pests will not have access to your business. Arborists will make sure no limb or branch touches your property during their tree trimming service.
Reduce the Chances of Personal and Property Damage
We can never prevent Mother Nature from showing her power. High winds and inclement weather can have a negative impact on trees. Uprooted trees and fallen limbs can damage any structure and even cause injury to anyone in the area. The good news is, the possible damage caused by trees can be prevented through commercial tree care. It is best to have your trees inspected by tree experts because they can tell if there are dead branches or weak limbs that need to be eliminated. They can use this opportunity to assess the overall health of your tree and advise as to what is the best thing to do to maintain the health of your tree.
If you let a sick tree sit in your business compound, you risk losing your business and hurting other people. Remember that your insurance policy may decline your damage claims if they found out the neglect on your end.
Earn the Reputation of a Caring, Responsible Local Business
Every municipality has its own rules and laws concerning trees. If you have trees in your commercial property, mainly if it is a Heritage Tree, you need to know the special rules that apply so that you can be compliant.
Laws also apply when your tree invades the land of your neighbor. You may be held legally and financially responsible in case the tree, damages the property. Another rule that may not be familiar to everyone is the Solar Shade Control Act that states trees or shrubs should not shade over 10% of a neighbor’ solar system, between the hours of 10 am to 2 pm.
You may not be familiar with the different rules and laws concerning trees that is why hiring a commercial tree service will be a smart move. They will not only improve the health and appearance of your tree, but they can also make sure you don’t get into trouble with the law.
