Tampa Tree Pruning

I have the pleasure of working on the website for a Tree Trimming company that serves the Tampa area. Of course, to work on that site I have to read and type a considerable amount of text on the topic of tree services.

Recently I was working on the page about Tree Pruning and Tree Trimming and thought it would make an interesting piece here.

Trees grow in forests and no one trims them, so why should I have my trees trimmed?

Well, if a limb falls in the forest, no one cares. Healthy trees shed limbs, sometimes large limbs, so keeping them trimmed out is necessary for safety.

If the entire tree falls in the forest, another will likely grow in it's place. If it falls on your home, it will likely do considerable damage and could cause serious injury to anyone nearby. An experienced arborist knows how to trim a tree properly to minimize the chance that the tree will fall.

Unlike the in the forest, trees near our homes are subject to our aesthetic desires. We want our trees to look nice. Trimming a tree helps maintain symmetry and a pleasant appearance.

If a tree is not growing enough foliage, a proper pruning will encourage it to put on more branches and leaves. If the tree is growing out of control, a prune / trim can curb and control the extra growth.

A tree might also be trimmed or pruned to allow more light to filter through the canopy or to allow more wind to pass through, making it less susceptible to storm damage.

Attempting to trim a tree without proper safety equipment and know-how is a dangerous thing! It's one thing to cut down a tree in the forest and let it fall, but in an around homes, cars and people, let the experts do the climbing and cutting.

Help for Struggling Businesses

If your business isn't performing the way you thought it would, if your profits are down or even negative, the stress can be overwhelming and each decision you make seems more difficult than the one before it.

Vendors need to be paid, payroll needs to be met, expansion is just a pipe-dream at this point. What do you do?

Maybe a Business Coach is just what you need to turn around a struggling business. Not sure, take this quiz DO YOU NEED A BUSINESS COACH? to see if a business coach is the right choice for you.

Your widgets are probably the best widgets in town, but if you struggle on the business side, your business may still fail. Seriously consider the expertise of someone who regularly helps business owners save failing businesses.

A great CPA

A skilled CPA is a great asset to your company, not only during tax season, but to help you plan your entire financial year and even your long term goals. A CPA has extensive training in all areas of finances and will bring those skills to bear for you.

So, you're looking for an accountant, you've done your research and want to ensure they have "CPA" in their title and you're on the hunt for a great one.

How do you decide?

Here's a more in-depth look at a Great CPA, but the short version is that beyond the technical ability, book learning and experience, you need a CPA with the soft skills to communicate with you in a way that suits your business and personal style. These soft skills help the CPA understand exactly what you want and expect out of your business and this helps the two of you make a plan to make it happen.

Tampa Outdoor Advertising

I mentioned it before, but I want to re-emphasize the importance of outdoor advertising for businesses who rely on walk-in traffic.

It may be even more important for those that need impulse driven traffic.

If you're in Tampa, St. Pete, or just about anywhere in Florida, Giant Balloon Rental out of Orlando is a great choice. As you'd guess by the name, they have giant inflatable gorilllas, eagles, motorcycles and many other shapes and characters.

What's not so obvious in their name is that they also offer Skytracker Searchlights and both traffic style and full color LED signs.

Another big seller and big impact maker is giant helium balloons, and of course to go with it, helium tank rental.

Whether your business is in South Tampa, New Tampa, Ybor City, Port Tampa, around the Port of Tampa or even downtown, give them a call at  407-354-2300 to see what outdoor advertising options will work best in your marketing strategy.
