Dead Trees

Like all natural things in the world, all trees die eventually. Whether this is through events like hurricanes and fires or through natural means, a dead tree poses a conundrum for all property owners. 

When a tree dies, it should be removed immediately as it can pose a serious danger to the surrounding area and people. Because it will ultimately lose all the strength that it once had, it will eventually start breaking off. Once this process starts, it may start to harm the people walking near the tree or even the structures near the dead tree.

Damaged Trees

Trees can get become damaged in natural incidents like storms, hurricanes, or lightning. They can also sustain damage from animals or from other accidents. In cases where an arborist looks over the damaged tree and cannot find a way for it to fully recover, or if it is posing a safety threat, then it can and should be removed as necessary.

Diseased/Infected Trees

A tree can become diseased through infection at any time. Many times, the disease won’t be caught in time to cure the tree unless you have a specialist who makes regular checkups on your trees. In that case, it is often best to perform a tree removal as soon as possible.

This not only ensures the tree won’t break off and cause damage, but it also ensures the safety of the other trees who might otherwise catch the same infection.

Overgrowing Trees

If you have plans for the area where your tree has grown or if its root system has started affecting the trees growing nearby, we may categorize the tree as encroaching. This means that it has started to disturb nearby growth and surrounding structures. In cases like these, the trees can either be seriously trimmed down or removed in more serious cases.

Nuisance Trees

The simple fact of the matter is that we don’t always want the trees we have. Perhaps you are looking to clear the lot to build something new, or perhaps you no longer want that species of tree you do have. These reasons may sound petty, but a tree removal service should be available to people who want it.
