Trees are a great addition to any property. They offer shade and beauty and can even provide extra income if you choose to sell your timber. However, trees can also cause problems if they are not cared for properly.

If you have trees causing damage to your property or public areas, it may be time to consider having the tree professionally removed. Unsure about whether you need tree removal services? Consider the following situations and assess your own to figure out if it’s time to enlist professional tree removal services.

When Do You Need Tree Removal Services?

1.    The Tree Is Damaging Your Home or Property

If the tree is damaging your home or property, it needs to be removed as quickly as possible. A damaged tree can cause serious structural issues to your home and can make living in certain areas inconvenient and dangerous.

It’s also possible that the roots could grow so deep that they damage plumbing or foundations. Furthermore, trees leaning over power lines or other important structures should also be removed immediately.

2.    The Tree Is Dangerous to People

Trees that pose a safety risk for people should be removed immediately by professional arborists. These include trees that are close enough to sidewalks or roads that they could easily fall onto someone walking by and those that have been weakened by disease or insects and could come crashing down without warning at any moment.

3.    If the Tree Is Dead

If your tree has died or become diseased, there’s no point in waiting for it to fall on its own accord. A dead tree can be dangerous and can cause damage to other plants around it. It also poses a safety risk because a falling branch could injure someone nearby.

4.    Signs of Insect Infestation

This goes hand-in-hand with dying trees but can also apply to healthy ones. If you find that insects like termites or beetles have invaded your tree, it will likely die. Get an arborist out there immediately to save what’s left of your tree before the infestation spreads.

5.    Tree Branches Overhanging Power Lines

Trees with branches that hang over power lines pose an obvious danger because they could easily come into contact with energized wires and cause a fire or electrical shock if touched by someone walking beneath them.

Trees are a beautiful addition to any property, but sometimes it’s necessary to have them removed. They can pose a safety risk if they are close to power lines or if they are diseased or decaying. Dying trees can also be unsightly and block your view of the landscape or the sky. A tree removal service will allow you to remove any trees you no longer need.
