It’s no surprise to Nashville citizens that severe weather is a common problem in Middle Tennessee. Severe flooding, lightning, tornadoes and major storms can march through our area in a matter of minutes, causing a lot of destruction. So how do you know when you can take care of the clean-up yourself, or when you need to call a professional? Cleaning up sticks and limbs is one thing, but damaged trees and power lines are another. Here are a few things to consider before doing the emergency repair yourself:
Is it dangerous? The Parke Company has years of experience dealing with dangerous situations. With certified arborists and trained tree care experts on staff, they know how to safely handle any emergency situation. Not sure if it is dangerous? Don’t take the risk! Call the Parke Company to complete the tree service just in case.
Is the repair out of your expertise? Though a lot of people enjoy “DIY” projects, tree care can oftentimes be out of people’s realm of expertise. If you are not an arborist and you’re unsure of what you’re doing, it could cause further damage to your property and even be dangerous to yourself. Play it safe and call the Parke Company to take care of the emergency situation.
Does it take more than one person to complete? If the job calls for more than one person, it is a complicated job and should be left for a professional. Even if you have a few extra hands on site, it’s not guaranteed that the job can be completed without strain. Leave the fallen or damaged trees to the professional arborist or tree care specialist who can complete it quickly and efficiently.
The Parke Company is always urging its customers to call in the event of an emergency. Trees fall on power lines, across roads and even buildings all the time when severe weather strikes. That’s why it is important to have a reliable and experienced team on call that won’t cause further damage to you or your property. If you have an emergency tree care situation in the Nashville area, page the emergency tree service department at (615) 201-9999 or email the department here.
Be safe, Nashvillians!
