It seems like there are tutorial videos for almost every home improvement project including tree pruning and removal. You may be tempted to do the tree care yourself to save money and maybe to gain another DIY trophy. But is it really the most practical thing to do? Or should you just call a certified tree lopper Melbourne?
The Pros of DIY
Cheaper or Totally Free The most common reason for attempting a DIY is because it’s cheaper or totally free. All you need is an hour or two and some tools and patience.
The Sense of Achievement Completing home improvement projects can give you a sense of achievement.
You Have Total Control over the Schedule You do not have to adjust to the schedule of the tree lopper. You can also start pruning then stop midway for a snack. There is no deadline.
The Cons of DIY
Sadly, DIY tree pruning and removal has more drawbacks than rewards. The truth is this task is more technical than it appears. There’s also some physics involved like calculating the direction where the branch will fall—something that can only be achieved with training.
