Love Trees? Do Not Forget Gutter Protection

By April 16, 2014October 16th, 2023No Comments

Some people are born with a natural love for trees; others enjoy them simply because they make their gardens and outdoor spaces look lovelier. Whichever category you belong to, you’re bound to understand why, given a choice in the matter, many homeowners would like to have trees near or around their houses. But before you head to your local nursery and find a tree you like, there are some things you should consider first, as this article from The Seattle Times points out:

What really matters is how the tree performs, what it adds to your garden. What shape does the tree take over time, are the flowers fragrant, do the leaves color up in autumn?

Enjoy tracking down a specimen worthy of your garden, even if it takes a few years.

Finding a seedling, planting and caring for it, and waiting to see how it will turn out can be really fulfilling. However, there are more things to consider than just choosing what kind of tree to plant. If, for instance, the tree you select will eventually grow to be higher than your roof, it can affect both your roof and gutter, particularly if you don’t have them cleaned and inspected regularly.

Leaves and debris are bad for gutters, as they can cause clogs and, over time, water damage. If there’s a tall tree near your house, it’s a safe bet that leaves are falling onto your roof and getting in your gutters. If you’re the type who does not like to clean your gutters religiously, these leaves will soon keep your gutter system from doing its job properly.
