Who trimmed my tree?

And then,

They did a terrible job!

This happens to hundreds of homeowners throughout Hampton Roads each year. No, there isn’t a roving pack of miscreants that trims trees in the least attractive way possible. It’s the utility company.

Utility companies perform maintenance on power and telephone lines every day. If there is an obstacle between them and the systems they need to maintain, they move them—or remove them. They aren’t considering things like the health of the tree or maintaining the aesthetics of it. They’re thinking about the lines behind it and the rest of the jobs they need to rush to throughout the rest of their day. Thousands of property owners levy complaints against their local utility companies every year, but necessity trumps beauty.

Pre-emptive Measures

The truth is that trees cause a lot of headaches for utility companies. Downed trees are the number one cause of damaged power lines by a huge margin. Many times, they trim or remove them just to prevent an emergency in the future. They don’t need to hack away at trees if they’ve already been maintained.

So what can you do?

By enlisting the services of a company that does tree trimming in Virginia Beach, or across Hampton Roads, you can keep your trees from growing into the areas that utility workers would need to work. Not only would you be saving the appearance and health of the greenery on your property, you’d be taking preventative measures to keep your utility lines safe in case of extreme weather.

My Name is Carrie and I live in Virginia Beach. I hired Tarzan Tree Service after hearing about them through a friend. I had always gone with another Tree Service so I was a little hesitant to try someone new. I scheduled an estimate and within 24 hours one of the owners was there. He presented himself in a professional manner and gave me a very competitive price. I was a little concerned about their legitimacy due to the low price so I checked out their website and found printable copies of their license and insurance on the site with phone numbers to verify it all. When they showed up to do the job the entire crew was clean-cut and courteous.  They gave my son a ride on the equipment before starting the job. These men removed 8 huge trees over my house and back yard within one day and left the yard cleaner than they found it. There is not a better tree company out there...

Thank you Tarzan Tree, these guys rock!!!
