It is obvious that a dying tree can potentially fall, but it is always necessary for human intervention? Or can we simply let the trees fall as they may? How do we know when a tree is dying? What other causes call for tree removal? There is no clear answer, as every circumstance is different, but there are basic guidelines to follow for optimal landscaping safety and tree care. Continue reading to learn the right times to remove a tree, and who to call for professional tree service and advice.
Times for Tree Removal
Trees can develop all kinds of problems, and not all of them can be fixed, cured, or saved. A dead tree usually needs removed if it is at risk of falling on property or people. When a tree can potentially fall over and crush something of importance beneath, then it is necessary to have that tree removed as soon as possible. For trees that are dead or dying, but out in nature or woods alone, it may not require any professional service or attention at all, and can probably just fall on its own. These assessments are better made by a qualified tree care professional. They retain the proper training, equipment, resources, and knowledge to safely and effectively remove a dead tree or dying tree.
Another time to remove a tree is if it’s causing obstruction of view in road traffic, or blocking street signs and traffic signals. A tree can also be an obstruction if its branches and foliage are clogging gutters, damaging rooftops, or interrupting power lines. In this case, you may just need professional tree trimming services, rather than removing the tree entirely; while other cases will benefit from removing the tree altogether.
When a tree is infected or diseased, it is at high risk of dying or decaying. When this is the case, it may be best to remove the tree before it deteriorates further; potentially spreading its disease to surrounding trees, or falling on people or property. Some tree diseases can be treated, however. But some others are untreatable and almost always result in the death of the tree. Again, it is best to call a professional tree service for safe and reliable tree removal and tree disease treatment. They might just be able to save your trees with strategic planning and treatment!
