Tree Removal Services We Provide
One of the most important aspects of tree removal is timing. A damaged or diseased tree should not be left standing for too long, as with every passing day it will become more of a hazard to people and property.
As a tree dies, it will naturally begin to shed its limbs and thicker branches. Even if they are composed of deadwood, these branches can still be extremely heavy – you don’t want them crashing down onto you, your car or the roof of our house!
Further, the root system of a tree will also begin to die back along with the tree itself, making it more likely to topple unexpectedly during inclement weather such as high winds or heavy snowfall.
Knowing when to call in the professionals is critical, so be sure to pay attention to the following:
A Dangerous Location
Trees can often grow to unexpected sizes, and what was planted once as a small sapling can over time grow into a towering tree. Whilst that can often be great news for your backyard it can be bad news for you if the position chose to plant the tree was not a good one, or if the tree has grown larger than anticipated.
Speaking very generally ,you should remove any trees near your dwelling.
This takes into account the potential for root growth damage. The bigger a tree gets, the more substantial it’s root system – and they can and will break through even a tough material like concrete, potentially causing serious damage to the foundations of your property.
A Sudden Lean
Broadly speaking, you don’t want to see any serious lean in your trees, otherwise it might be time for tree removal. It’s true however that some trees can develop a bit of a lean when they are saplings. Over time, the root system will adjust and grow to stabilize the tree.
An older tree that suddenly takes on a lean however is bad news, as the root system won’t be there to support it’s new angle. This is potentially a tree in trouble, and you should not delay in calling us in to investigate and remove the hazard.
No one likes a bald patch do they – and in a tree it can be one of the first signs of a disease taking hold. If you look up into the foliage and can see several bare patches, this suggest the parts of the tree that would be supporting leaf growth in that area are fallen or will be getting ready to smack on the ground. Again, this warrants swift investigation from a professional tree service to discover the cause – and remove the tree before it can spread the disease or die completely and becoming a falling hazard.
Inspecting the trunk can give a great indication of the trees health. Persistent cracking or splits that don’t heal are indicators of a dead or dying tree – one that could need to be chopped down and taken away before the trunk fails completely, and the tree comes crashing down of it’s own accord.
