There are many reasons to have bushes and shrubs removed from your property. Dense and overgrown foliage can be an eyesore and dangerous. It can be difficult to remove bushes and shrubs that have gotten out of control. That’s why getting in an expert can save you a lot of pain and time. Joe’s Tree Care has the kind of heavy-duty equipment that is needed to remove such coverage. When removing thick foliage, there are many things to consider. Getting the root of these bushes out, to prevent regrowth is important, and doing it without causing damage to the surrounding trees and plants you wish to remain intact, can be a challenge.
One big reason we recommend the clearing of shrubs and bush around your property is for fire safety. Here in Southern California fires are common and dry seasons are lasting longer and longer. Dry, dense bush can act as kindling and speed the spread of fire. For the sake of your home and your community’s security, we recommend regular clearing of dense dry underbrush and dead tree foilage. Get in before your local fire department does, because local fire departments are often active in surveying and notifying property owners when their shrubbery is becoming a fire hazard for wildfires.
It’s important to get a professional to do your clearing, rather than DIY it, because underbrush can often contain thorns, spikey leaves, and even be poisonous, like in the case of poison ivy. Bushes are also often a breeding ground for ticks and other bugs, like termites that you don’t want spread, or to come in contact with your pets and home.
Keeping your garden looking and feeling tidy is another great reason for bush and shrub clearance. Overgrown bushes can look unsightly and also cause trees to lose nutrients. In some cases, they can even strangle trees by attaching themselves to tree root systems. Not to mention create an environment where shrubs that you want to grow find it hard to thrive. Lots of overgrown bushland can create a place for rodents to hide and bugs and pests to breed. Ticks often found in wild shrubs have been known to spread Lyme disease.
