Property can also be damaged in the process. If you hire an arborist, he will know how to handle the job properly and he will know what not to do with the trees.

It can be a big job to care for the trees in your property and if you hire an arborist, it can help save you time and money.
Poor maintenance of your backyard would soon give you problems with your plants and trees. Lack of tree pruning will results in many branches drying or crossing over. When there are strong, powerful wind gusts, the dead limbs and branches can easily break and even large tree limbs can snap if your trees are not properly pruned. If you have well maintained and pruned trees, then even strong winds are not able to break them, but they will just sway with the wind. If branches fall on property then it can surely be destroyed. If branches rub against your house, it can break windows, destroy eaves, etc. Power lines can be hit by branches that get out of control. The arborist’s job is to keep your trees healthy so that it does not pose a risk to the safety of your family. Arborists will see to it that your trees are pruned regularly.
There will be fungi and other tree diseases in dead decaying wood. If these are not removed, then they will grow and spread on your trees. A diseased tree will soon die. Arborists can remove all the dead and decaying branches from your trees to prevent diseases to spread.
If healthy branches are not able to get sunlight because of the presence of many dead branches, then it will try to reach out sidewards to get to the sunlight. This rapid growth is bad. This is because the major limbs will grow long and skinny and may not be strong enough to support the weight of their leaf-bearing branches. You will soon need to remove this tree if it gets too crowded and overgrown. If an arborist remove the dead branches, then the tree will develop properly because sunlight reaches all its parts.
