When To Have A Tree On Your Property Removed From It

Posted on: 12 January 2021

If you have a tree that needs to be removed due to its current state, then you don't want to put this off. If you put off having a tree removed that needs it, then you run the risk of something happening, such as it falling or large branches breaking off in the meantime. These things can create dangerous situations. Here are some of the things that can cause a tree to need to be removed from your property: 

The tree is dead or close to it

A dead tree is a dangerous one because it can fall. Also, the branches can just snap off and come crashing to the ground at any moment and without warning. When the branches or the tree fall, they can come down on people, animals, cars, or the home. The best way to prevent this is to have the tree removed as soon as it is determined that it is dead or dying. 

The tree has been damaged in a storm

There are numerous ways that a tree can end up being damaged in a storm. One of the things that can happen is they can suffer extensive damage due to very strong winds, especially if a tree is one with short or shallow roots. Another way that a tree can be damaged in a storm is by being struck by lightning. Any tree with significant storm damage that has left the tree unstable should be looked at by a professional and possibly removed. 

The tree is threatening a structure or something else on the property

Trees can surprise you and become much larger than you imagined. Also, you may inherit a tree when you purchase your property and end up finding that the tree is in a bad place. Some of the ways that a tree can end up threatening something else on the property is when the roots grow long and thick enough to pose a risk to things like the plumbing, the walkways, the porch, or even the swimming pool. From the top, the trees can grow so large it is no longer possible to prevent them from growing into the eaves of the house or the power lines by keeping them routinely trimmed. In cases such as these, it's best to have the tree removed to protect the areas or the structures that it is a threat to.
