A tree may seem healthy to the untrained eye, but it could be a disaster waiting to happen.
Dead, dying or otherwise hazardous trees can lead to thousands of dollars in damage, plus the priceless cost of personal injury. Often a tree doesn’t look dangerous until after a storm exposes its vulnerabilities.
Tree removal is typically a last resort, when no other safe management option, like pruning or disease mitigation, is sufficient.
So what are signs to look for?
There are signs of infection.
You see large, dead branches in the tree’s crown.
Tree isn’t growing well.
There is evidence of root defects.
The trunk is compromised.
The tree is hollow.
The tree is suddenly leaning.
You observe sprouts at the base of the tree.
The tree is under power lines.
The tree is too close to a house or other structure.
If you notice any of the above signs, give us a call, as most tree removal jobs are unsafe for the average home or property owner.
