Typically trees provide us with many good things, including shade, beauty, and of course, fruitage. They also help the environment and improve our landscape. However, there are some instances that you may need to consider calling your local arborist.
Here are some reasons you might consider a tree removal:
Sudden lean. It is easy to recognise when the tree’s regular growth pattern has been altered after seeing that it suddenly leaned to one side. It is an indication that the tree became hazardous and should be removed.
Tree storm damage. Storms and extreme weather conditions can severely impact the health of the tree. Ask your arborist to assess the tree after a storm. Bad weather conditions can break branches of a once healthy tree and may even cause the tree to lean on one side. When bad weather happens again, the tree can cause property damage, giving you more headaches in the end. Root failure may cause a tree to fall. You should call your arborist for downed tree removal.
If damage is somewhat slight, prune damaged branches, repair torn bark or rough edges around wounds, and let the tree begin the process of wound repair. A mature shade tree can usually endure the loss of one major limb. The broken branch should be pruned back to the trunk. If there is severe damage and risks, you can consider removing the tree before accidents happen.
Tree disease problems. When the tree has a disease and becomes very obvious and noticeable, it may be necessary to remove it. Symptoms of a diseased tree include spotted leaves, wilted foliage, fungi, unusual growths, and the like. Check your tree for any sign of disease since these severe ailments can spread to other trees nearby, which could be dangerous in the end. It is important to call an arborist if your tree has signs of disease so that they can properly remove it before the infection spreads to healthy trees.
