Is Your HOA Forcing You To Prune Your Trees?

When an old customer of ours called us recently, the first thing out of his mouth when I picked up the phone was, “Well, Henry. I guess it’s time that I finally prune my trees! My HOA is on my case about getting it done.” 

Admittedly, it had been three or four years since he last had us out to his property on the south side of Denton for some good old-fashioned tree pruning. So, I wasn’t too surprised that he now needed another round done. In fact, we reminded him a few times over the years to not let too much time go by. We couldn’t convince him then, but all it took was one HOA letter to finally grab his attention. 

“You must be really overdue if they’re coming after you,” I said with a laugh.

“Yes. Apparently, they’re sending letters to everyone,” he said.

To make a long story short, we scheduled him for later that afternoon. And now he and the HOA are happy. The moral of this story is that overgrown trees can not only hurt your home’s curb appeal and be a potential danger to nearby structures and cars — they can also be a nuisance to your neighbors and whatever homeowner’s association governs your neighborhood.

Think about it. How many times have you seen these scenarios play out because a homeowner hasn’t done any tree pruning lately?

  • Neighbors out for a leisurely walk around the block have to duck or crouch down to miss low-hanging branches near the sidewalk.
  • Trash collectors find it harder to skirt their massive trucks past bigger trees, causing them to scrape against or damage limbs.
  • Trees that constantly grow over fences and quickly invade a neighbor’s yard.
  • Overgrown trees that detract from the stateliness of the neighborhood as a whole.

What Do We Mean By Tree Pruning?

On a basic level, tree pruning or tree trimming in Denton includes removing dead, diseased, hanging, or weak branches. Many homeowners can spot these and eliminate the ones closest to the ground. But a professional service can tackle the same job at greater heights, leaving for a more balanced approach and efficiently shaped tree through tip reduction. We can manually climb a tree to complete a job or utilize our CMC 83 Arbor Lift, chipper, or stump grinder to breeze through projects some tree removal companies simply can’t or don’t want to handle. Our Arbor Lift is specifically designed for arborists and allows us to tackle any project. But even if the lift isn’t appropriate for your tree service needs, that’s OK because we are pros at tree climbing to get the job done. 

In many instances, we can spot limbs you didn’t think were an issue but are actually cracked and could lead to expensive damage if not removed. Tree pruning also includes restorative work and strategically removing branches weighing the tree down, limiting light penetration, and forcing you to “duck down” to avoid low-hanging branches.

Hence, the reason why you got that letter from the HOA!
