Trees are a nice addition to any yard, as they make homes look more beautiful, but homeowners have to be careful on the type of tree they plant around their homes. Tall tree with leaves that keep falling should be avoided as they can keep a home’s gutter system clogged.
Prune Overgrown Branches
Tree branches need to be pruned on a regular basis to prevent them from reaching the roof and dropping leaves and dead wood there.
Get a Tree Removal Service
Sometimes homeowners have trees that they want to keep for sentimental values. The fact that these trees drop leaves does not mean they have to be cut down to help prevent the gutter system from clogging up. Getting a tree removal service to help transfer such trees some distance from the house can solve any debris problems. The tree can be moved and replanted some distance away from the house without killing it.
