If you have a wooded area on your property, you may not keep it as heavily manicured as your front and back yards. But that doesn't mean you should let it devolve into a jungle either. Here are some reasons why you may want to hire a tree trimming service for the trees in your wooded area.
1. Maintain the value of land
Large trees on part of your property could make that piece of property especially valuable to someone who may buy your land in years to come. If you take good care of the trees, managing them carefully so they don't get too crowded and thinning out branches as needed, you can ensure the trees on the lot will be more valuable. Whether the buyer wants to cut the trees as timber or maintain them as a healthy forested area, they'll appreciate you keeping the trees strong and healthy.
2. Grow timber to sell
Even if you don't plan to ever sell your property, maintaining the trees in your wooded area can come with benefits. You may be able to sell them to a lumber mill as timber in the future, especially if they're large and easy to access and you live near a lumber mill. But a timber buyer will typically only be interested in trees they can make a profit from, which means they'll tend to be more interested in straight, strong, well-kept trees.
3. Use branches as firewood
A wooded area on your property can also provide useful materials for your daily life. For example, you could ask the tree trimming contractor to leave the removed branches on your property, so you can use them in a bonfire, outdoor fireplace, or wood-fired smoker.
4. Enjoy recreational activities
A well-kept forest area is much more useful than a tangled thicket when it comes to enjoying recreational activities on your property. Keeping low-hanging branches cleared out is the first step to making a wooded area usable. Once the branches are trimmed respectably, you can have brush removed or weeds mowed so you can enjoy recreational activities such as bird watching or gardening (forest gardens have a charm all their own).
If you have children, the wooded area could be a great place for them to play as well, particularly in hot summer weather. You could hang a tree swing or even build a treehouse for the kids in this wooded area of your property.
These are just some of the reasons why you should consider having the trees in your forested area trimmed and maintained on a consistent basis. Not only will you get more out of the property, but you could make more money on it (or on the trees themselves) later on.
