Tree maintenance is a necessary part of homeownership. While trees add beauty to your yard, they can also create problems if they’re not maintained properly. This is why homeowners can’t afford to forget about tree trimming and removal services. In our previous blog post, we discussed the importance of removing dead or dying trees. In this conclusion of our two-part blog, we share tips on how to determine whether it’s time to remove an unhealthy tree.
Here are the signs that mean it’s time to consider tree removal:
Clear Health Issues
Trees that are 50% damaged or more should be removed. Trees that are on a steady decline with clear signs of internal decay not only look bad, but they can also spread disease to nearby plant life.
Leaning trees are obviously more hazardous than vertical ones. A tree that suddenly starts leaning may have weakened roots, which is hazardous. In such situations, call a dependable tree service provider as soon as possible. Trees swaying 15% or more should be removed immediately.
Large trees that have damaged branches pose an immediate danger to you, your home, as well as passersby. They can fall at any given moment and cause serious injury or property damage. In addition, they can breach power lines, another serious hazard.
