Deciding to part with plants or fauna in your yard may be difficult because they provide much-needed shade, oxygen, and are aesthetically pleasing. However, there comes the point where trimming and pruning branches isn’t enough. The tree on your property may need emergency tree removal is it exhibits one or more of the following.
When Do You Need to Get Rid of a Tree?
1. Obstructing Property or Powerlines
Branches that are growing into your neighbors’ yard should be cut back, so they don’t destroy their property. Although this is a manageable solution, branches that grow too fast, wrap themselves around powerlines, or are starting to slam into your home can become costly with frequent pruning and repairs. It’s better to call for tree removal, as the branches will forever grow in the same position, regardless of upkeep.
2. Infestation & Disease
Insects, like termites, will bore themselves into trees to make a home. Mold can cause discoloration of the wood and begin to rot the roots and wood fibers. Both of these infestations are manageable with the proper repellant, but other diseases can infest the rest of your yard. If a mushroomed fungus has begun to spread to multiple different plants, or it’s starting to rot the trunk from the inside out, tree removal should be conducted immediately before it spreads further.
3. Roots Are Destroying Pipes
Roots won’t stop growing until the trunk is removed from the ground. They won’t be disrupted, even through concrete. Upper roots that are visible can encroach their way into the foundation in your home, and it’s difficult to remove or cut roots back. If roots are going deep enough into the soil that they’re damaging underground piping, tree removal is a viable option.
