Is It Time For My Tree To Go?

Posted on June 26th, 2020

Is It Time For My Tree To Go?

Trees are beautiful, they provide shade and oxygen, and they really add something special to the landscape. While having trees on your property has a number of benefits, they don’t always last forever. A tree that may look healthy from afar could actually be a dangerous accident waiting to happen. As a property owner, it’s important to know when it’s time to call a professional tree removal service to keep your home and your property safe. 

When a tree has been compromised, a single storm can be a dangerous situation. A falling tree or tree limb can create a fatal accident in a matter of seconds, and one that many don’t see coming until it’s too late. In order to keep you, your home, your guests, and your neighborhood safe, it’s important to get to know the health of your tree and to seek help from the professionals when any tree on your property has become compromised. 

Signs Your Tree Is Ready For Removal 

Knowing what to look for can let you know when it’s time to remove your tree. Even if no injuries are reported, having a tree fall on your home is a lengthy and expensive process that can displace you for weeks to months at a time. A few signs you can look for to let you know it’s time to call your local tree removal professionals are: 

  • Decay fungi growing near the trunk’s base – If you spot mushrooms or other forms of decay-producing fungi at the trunk or base of your tree, this may be a sign that your tree is in the process of dying. The presence of mushrooms doesn’t always mean that the tree is in the process of dying, but it should be thoroughly evaluated by a professional. 

  • The tree is under power lines – Sometimes, even a healthy tree may need to be removed. If a tree on your property is growing toward power lines, it may need to be trimmed or completely removed by a professional. Harming power lines can place yourself and your neighborhood at risk. 

  • The tree has become hollow – If more than 1/3 of your tree has become hollow, it’s become a major hazard. A hollow tree is a fragile tree, and a single strong storm can send that tree or its limbs crashing to the ground or into your residence. If you suspect your tree is hollow, it’s important to have the tree inspected and potentially removed straight away. 

  • Signs of infection or infestation – If you spot signs of infection or infestation on the tree, it’s only a matter of time until the entire tree is compromised.
