Tree removal—How Do You Decide When To Remove A Tree?

A large tree with long branches and green leaves can really make your house look great. Trees in general add to the beauty of your house while providing shade.

In some households, trees have a sentimental value as well. However, like all living things trees also get old and weak.

An old and damaged tree poses a threat to your house and belongings. Professionals can help reduce the threat; however, sometimes, the only choice that you have is to have the tree completely removed.

Here are some of the signs that you need to remove your tree:

The tree has suffered significant damage

Typically, trees are pretty sturdy. They do not get damaged that easily and survive for a long period of time.

They can withstand storms and other harsh weather conditions without taking any kind of significant damage.

However, trees too have certain limits. Inspect the tree in your yard on a fairly regular basis. Keep an eye out for any damage. More than fifty percent of the damage to the tree is a sign that you need to remove it. We understand that it is not a very easy decision to make but it is imperative if you want to avoid damage to your property.

The power lines

Let’s just say that trees and power lines are not exactly the ideal companions.

You need to make sure that you regularly trim the tree beneath the power lines. There have been cases in the past where over grown trees led to breakage of power lines. This can result disruption of the electricity supply in your area.

Your tree is leaning

You wake up one morning and notice that your tree, which stands upright, is leaning on one side. You ignore it thinking that maybe you are mistaken. However, the position of the tree continues to change to the point where it starts resembling the leaning tower of Pisa.

This is a sign of weakened or broken roots. There is a chance that the tree might end up falling over in which case you can expect some severe damage.

A diseased tree

There are trees, which may appear to be fine on the outside, but may have significant structural damage on the inside.

This is a sign that the tree is sick. You might want to get rid of this kind of tree because certain types of tree diseases are actually contagious and can cause health problems.

The tree is occupying too much space

The roots of the trees continue to grow over a period of time. Since trees go on to live for a large number of years, there comes a point where they start occupying more space. This causes problems if you want to extend parts of your home. Sometimes, the trees can also cause damage to the foundations of your home in which case it is best to remove the tree altogether.
