Trees offer shade, privacy, and aesthetic appeal, but they can also be dangerous in certain situations. If a mature tree falls, it can damage your property and the surrounding electrical wires. Unfortunately, you could also be held financially responsible for these instances, so it’s best to remove the problem before it can cause any harm. If any of your foliage displays one of the following signs, you may need tree removal.
3 Warning Signs of Tree Removal
1. Leaning Trees
Leaning trees are one of the most dangerous objects to have on your property, and they're usually caused by illness or root instability. If the wind blows just right or fast enough, it can cause gravity to take over and uproot the whole plant. It's much less dangerous to be proactive about the situation and remove it sooner rather than later.
2. Visible Roots
As a tree grows, its roots extend throughout the surrounding ground so that it can soak up nutrients and moisture, as well as stabilize its weight. While you may occasionally see a root or two near the base, if they're suddenly peaking up further into your yard, then you may have an issue. When the roots rise, the tree can be easily knocked over because the roots aren't stabilizing it anymore. Your arborist may be able to save it with extensive trimming, but it will likely call for tree removal.
3. Infected Symptoms
You may also need tree removal if your greenery is showing signs of illness, such as fungal or bacterial infection. If you notice signs like bark discoloration, foliage loss, or unusual growths, then contact an arborist to diagnose the problem. In some instances, treatment can eliminate the problem and bring the tree back to life. In other cases, though, it may be too late and removing it completely is the only way to prevent spreading the problem.
