Many homeowners choose to prune back dead branches, trim trees and remove withering foliage in the fall. However, it’s common to see dead limbs during fall that pose a severe threat to both your property and your family. In addition, falling branches pose a risk to people as temperatures drop and winter storms approach. Please note that tree removals can be done at any time of year.
General Benefits of Tree Removal
Below are other general benefits of removing unwanted trees on your property:
- Roofs, electrical lines, cars, and people are all exposed to the risks of dead branches and dying trees.
- Tree professionals can inspect your property and determine which trees should be pruned, braced, or removed.
- The root zone can be extensive over time, especially if the tree is ancient. Overgrown root zones can raise and weaken concrete and structures on your property as it continues to expand. Some root zones can cause irreparable damage and increase the costs associated with restoring sections of the affected property. The more cost-efficient solution is to remove the offending tree, including its stump and root zone.
- Overgrown branches or unsightly trees can block your family’s perspective of your home’s natural environment.
- Your home’s curb appeal might be harmed by an unsightly tree or too much shade. However, pruning or tree removal is done correctly can substantially improve your home’s appearance—and value—.
- Clearing trees to make room for a pool, garage, or other structure can help improve mood while also increasing the value of a home.
Signs That You Need Professional Tree Removal on Your Property
- The tree is no longer alive.
- The tree is sickly. Observe the treetop – if a substantial number of branches have already died or seem to be dying, that may be a sign that the tree needs to be removed. Another sure sign is if the trunk shows signs of rotting and breakage. It’s usually a symptom of illness or root or trunk damage if most dead branches are on one side only. The tree may only require pruning if less than a quarter of the injured limbs.
- Wind and storms can easily injure trees. If a tree is substantially wounded during a storm, it may not be able to recover. Therefore, the kindest thing to do is remove it from the property, as it will still die if the injury is significant.
- Over the years, the tree has grown close to your home or is close to the utility lines, carport, garage or barn, and other structures. You may have also found out that the root zone has become extensive and has already damaged the concrete.
- The tree is leaning in a potentially hazardous direction, such as toward your home, children’s playing area, deck, or driveway.
- The tree produces troublesome cotton, seeds, sap, needles, or leaves.
- The tree obstructs your view or casts too much shade on your lawn. The extra shade may be causing your property to become undergrown.
- You intend to make landscaping changes that will eventually harm the tree.
- Tree species that regularly break or are prone to insect infestations may be unsuitable for your environment. Therefore, they’re undesirable tree species that tree cutting professionals may need to remove.
- The tree will likely live if at least half of it is healthy. When more than 50% of the tree is diseased, it may be time to cut it down. In addition, it may be necessary to remove the tree if it has extensive cracks or other severe damage.
- Hollowness isn’t always a reason to cut down a tree. However, if the hollowness exceeds 30% of the tree’s total, you may want to have it removed already.
- Even healthy trees leaning more than 15% off vertical plumb should be removed because they pose a safety risk.
