Deciding When It's Time to Remove a Tree

November 29, 2022

Not everyone understands that you can be attached to a tree. But it's true. When you have a tree in your backyard or even in the front yard, and it's been there for as long as you can remember, it kind of becomes part of the family. You get used to it. It can blend into your life and almost be a part of your home. There's a sentimentality to it and that's completely okay.

Because a lot of trees are harmless and they can stand there for as long as they need to. But then there's also the case where a tree needs to go. This is usually when the tree is dangerous and poses a safety risk. But how do you exactly know when a tree needs to be taken down or removed? Well, today we're going to give you some signs so that you can have some peace of mind as well.

The lower trunk is cracked.

The lower trunk of the tree is the foundation of the tree. Without it, you have a tree that could fall over. And that spells trouble. You never want to treat be at risk of it falling because, there are people around, cars around, and homes around. It's a safety risk. And when the tree becomes a safety risk that's the time when it needs to go. There are no answers buts about it. So if you spot the lower trunk is cracked, that's a sign that you have a problem and the tree probably needs to be removed.

Tree branches hanging over your roof.

When the tree branches hang over your roof this is one of the clearest signs that a tree needs to go. Of course, you can cut some of those branches off but you might be saving yourself a lot of trouble if you just remove the tree in general. You don't want to risk those branches falling onto your roof. Because roof costs could go through the roof no pun intended. In addition to that, you don't want to be sleeping in your home and worrying whether or not that tree is going to come through your ceiling.

The tree is leaning.

There are plenty of signs that show a tree needs to go and one of them is when the tree is leaning like the Tower of Pisa. This is almost an emergency because of a bad storm strikes or that tree trunk gives out, you have a big problem on your hands. A tree falling could be catastrophic so, don't avoid the sign and if it's leaning, call the professionals.
