 TREE CAT RESCUE


Believe it or not a tree service company can come in handy if you find yourself in a situation where your cat is stuck on a tree. Cats are amazing, excellent climbers but are not so good a descending back from trees or any high platform.
Cats are not like squirrels that climb a tree facing down as we mentioned cats are good climbers going up, but they are not good coming down because cats must climb down a tree backwards due to physics and physiology. 
Even though some cats eventually will figure something out and will find the way to get down from the tree, but it would be impossible for a cat to climb down if the his injure, exhausted or if the diameter of a tree is too large for the cat to jump and land on its feet.

If your cat is stuck in a tree you can try to give them a little time to see if they react and figure out some way to come down, you can also try to put a bowl of his favorite food as a motivation. Remember cats like people isolated from water and food will suffer from dehydration, malnutrition and if don't get to them on time they will get sick and for what is worst they can die. 

 Some people that don't have pets they would think that worrying about your cat is silly and if the cat got up there alone he should get down the same way. But is all because they have no idea about how cats react and don't have any idea about what pets do.

 In some places the fire department don't help in this type of things and the best you can do is to contact your local tree service company, they have professionals that are trained to climb even the highest tree and they can gladly help you rescue your loving pet.

Our tree service team provide this services because we know that pets are family and when family is in danger we do all we can to help.

TREES AND THEIR IMPORTANCE FOR THE LIVING KIND!!!

TREES AND THEIR IMPORTANCE FOR THE LIVING KIND.
 Trees and their importance


We all know that trees are a very important factor for the whole planet and that they produce the oxygen that we breathe and they also help maintain clean our water resources. Trees make our lives more pleasant, they are beautiful to look at and also provide good shade that can help our houses to stay cooler n summer time and approximately they cover about 30 percent of our planet.

if you have trees in your property, that i'm sure you, you should always make sure to give them the best care and maintenance they need to keep them healthy and looking beautiful that way you'll contributing to the ecosystem and you will have a property with an amazing look.

  • Trees provide oxygen
  • Trees clean our air
  • Trees conserve energy
  • Trees help prevent water pollution
  • Trees protect us from ultra-violet rays
  • Trees save water
  • Trees provide wood
  • Trees provide food
  • Trees provide homes for the wilds
And those are only few on the things trees do for us, make sure you have a valid reason to have one removed or cutting down.

HAVING A TREE REMOVE OR CUTTING DOWN???

You may ask yourself why it is so important if i cut a tree or not? It is very important because as I've been saying trees play a very important role for our planet, they provide us with food, paper, medicine, latex, fuel, wood and many other products that we use on our daily lives. 

Let's make sure that whenever we decide to have a tree cut down is for a good reason, because the tree is putting our house a risk in case of bad weather or if the tree has gotten sick and it can fall down in any second causing problems on electric cables, phone lines, fall in the sidewalks, streets, buildings or pedestrians. 
If you decide to remove a tree make sure you plant a new tree even if not in your own property but you can go and plant it in parks or forest areas.


TREES ARE LIVING ORGANISM AND VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE LIVING KIND.

HELPING OTHERS FEELS GREAT!!!

HELPING OTHERS FEELS GREAT (DONATE BLOOD)

Help is a word that everybody says but actually few people practice it, because now in day we have become so self-centered and we forget to give. You can do so much by doing so little and by doing that i can assure you'll be feeling a lot better and good things will come for you too.
 HELPING PEOPLE


I recently had the experience of donating blood, i was really nervous at the beginning but just the thought of knowing that i was going to contribute to save someone's life made me feel better. We live i a world where we don't even take the time to eat breakfast so that's why we don't even pay attention to what is going on with the rest of the world.

When you volunteer on donating blood you are playing a crucial role in helping save lives each and every day, sometimes we don't pay attention or just don't care because we haven't been in a situation where we or a loved one needs a blood transfusion.
If you do a research you will find out that there is people dying by the second because they couldn't find their blood type or just because at the hospital they didn't have enough blood to do the transfusion.

It pains to know that we don't take the time to see what's on the other side, but complain everyday about everything, while others are fighting just to stay alive for one more day. We can work together and make a big difference for other

IT'S A GREAT EXPERIENCE

LET'S HELP OTHERS TODAY, TOMORROW YOU COULD BE THE ONE NEEDING THE HELP!!
