Trimming the branches around your house is very important so that your house isn’t damaged by them in a storm. Trimming branches around your home can be dangerous so here’s how to do it safely:

  • Use the right tools: If you’re cutting smaller branches, you’ll want to use pruners. Avoid using a chainsaw unless you have experience using a chainsaw.
  • Trim strategically: Start from the area where the branch is attached to the tree and make a clean cut at a slight angle. Try not to remove large branches with one cut, do it in multiple. It can cause instability to the tree if you do it in one cut. 
  • Hire a professional: The safest and most efficient way to trim your tree branches is to hire a professional. Call WNY Roof today to have your tree branches trimmed.
