If It’s Dead…Treat it as Such.

That’s a tough concept, right?  Trees on your property can be beautiful and provide needed shade, but if a tree should die, it should be removed so that it does not cause problems for you, your neighbors or other people.  Dead trees can pose many dangers, so take them into consideration when deciding what action to take with a dead tree in your yard.

Injuries caused by falling branches or limbs can range from minor cuts and bruises to even fatal in nature!  If a dead tree is on your property and someone is injured by a falling branch or limb, you may be responsible for paying for the injured party's medical bills and pain and suffering.  This must be considered in addition to the safety of your own family.

Add to that, the potential of power and utility outages and damaged phone lines.  You can readily see that a dead tree on your property needs to be dealt with in a timely fashion.  The Tree Professional of Reno serving Northern Nevada specializes in removing dead trees safely and completely from your property.  Call Greg at The Tree Professional at (775) 420-8694.

As it Pertains to Tree Care on Rental Properties…the Rules can be “Shady”.

Although trees may not seem like a high priority if you’re a landlord, they are actually very important to consider when thinking about property value, energy costs, and environmental wellbeing.  Trees are a great asset when you market your rental property.  Property value, energy costs, and the environment in general are all considerations.

The $64 question (and much more) is whether or not landlords are responsible for fallen trees.  Typically, a landlord is responsible for fallen trees because they own the tree.  The tree is on your property Mr. or Ms. Landlord, so the tree is considered yours.  If the tree did fall because of a natural occurrence, your policy will probably cover any damage the tree caused.

We hope this helps landlords understand the value and responsibility that trees on your rental property entail.  We also are confident that if you need trees removed from your rental property in Northern Nevada that you will trust The Tree Professional located in Reno.  Keep your rental area neat and clean by trusting The Tree Professional.  Call Greg at (775) 420-8694.
