What are some common reasons for removing a tree?
There are many reasons a person may want to remove a tree from their property. Below, we cover a few common reasons our clients have ultimately decided to take down trees on their property:
When a tree has died, there is nothing that can be done for it. You can’t bring it back to life. In addition to diminishing looks, a dead tree presents safety issues to your property. As it dies, it loses strength and can fall on your house, vehicles, and even people and pets. If a tree on your property has died, it needs to be removed by professionals as soon as possible for your and your family’s safety. If you suspect a tree is dying on your property, give us a call for an inspection and suggestions on what to do next.
Tree That Suffered Damage
Wind and lightning can wreck an otherwise healthy tree. After Mother Nature has had her say, it may just be too much damage to keep the tree up. The damage might render the tree an eyesore for your property. The damage can also present a safety hazard for your family. If your tree has experienced damage, we can check it out and let you know what you need to do.
Disease and Infected Trees
Just because a tree has a disease or is infected doesn’t mean that it has to come down. The tree can be treated and brought back to health, but sometimes the tree is too far gone, and safety becomes an issue. In this case, it’s best to go ahead and remove the tree.
Over time, tree roots can cause driveways, sidewalks, and even foundations if precautions were not taken when initially planted.
If you’re planning and building on your property and a tree stands in the way, you’re going to have to remove it.
Unattractive / Annoying
Even healthy trees can cause problems. A person may not like how it looks on their property and thinks it would improve if the tree was removed. The tree could be blocking a sightline that is more pleasing to the eye. The tree can shed annoying seeds and fruit that attract unwanted animals or pests.
