I wanted to bring to light a comparison of 2 mind sets for doing tree work.
First: Do the work over time or several years causing initial savings, but occurring elongated costs.
Second: Do all the work in one fell swoop at a higher initial cost, but save in the long run.
You have a community that needs a bunch of work but a small budget year over year. In total you have 35 trees that need to be removed due to various reasons and 45 that need to be pruned off houses.
(These numbers are general for the example)
1.) Remove a little at a time say 6 trees and prune 10 of them. At a cost of $1500 per removal typically and roughly $675 a prune. Total would be roughly 15,750 for the job. (you would still have things to do every year with risk of damage or harm to residence from the neglected trees)
2.) 36 trees need to be removed out of the entire community at $950, and 46 need to be pruned at $375
Giving you a grand total of: $51,450 to get the entire community taken care of. (This would lead to 3-5 years with no work needing to be done.
The way we do business in communities is going to be larger up front, but the overall cost and reduction of liability over time is exponentially reduced.
Here are my questions:
1.) Would this be something that would interest any of you and if so what would keep you from doing it?
2.) Would you be willing to hear how working with a company like ours will help with a positive ROI and help to increase that curb side appeal ultimately making it so you can get better tenants and possibly raise rent over time?
