Here are some reasons why it might be sensible to use a tree removal service before your home goes on the market.
1. It could introduce more light into your home interior
For many people, one of their biggest concerns when looking for a home to buy is whether or not a particular property has enough natural light, as the absence of it can not only give a home interior a gloomy look but can also mean that whoever buys that property will have to work hard to create artificial lighting plans that will compensate for this lack of sunlight.
If you have any trees that are near your home's windows that block out a lot of the light that should stream through these panes, you should consider getting them removed. Once the trees are removed and the sunlight can enter these rooms, these areas will instantly look larger and brighter.
If any branches are close enough to the windows to almost completely block out the light that's supposed to come into them, it might be necessary to have the arborist do some pre-removal pruning of these branches before they fell the trees; this will ensure that these branches don't scratch the panes when the trees are taken down. This is important, as if the panes get scratched by the branches, you'll have to get them fixed before you can host any viewings.
2. You won't have to worry about the tree putting anyone off the property
The other reason why using a tree-removal service might be a good idea is that you won't have to worry that the trees are putting anyone off your property. While trees can definitely improve a property's kerb appeal, most potential buyers will be familiar with both the expensive maintenance they require (i.e. pruning, fertilising, mulching, leaf clean-up and disease prevention) and the many problems that they can cause.
Even though anyone interested in your home could have the trees taken down after they buy it, they will probably just look for a property that's in the same price bracket and looks similar to yours that doesn't have trees so they don't have to incur any tree removal bills just after making this big purchase. As such, even if you think that the trees give your property's exterior an attractive look, you should consider removing them.
