It is difficult to say goodbye to a tree you have had for many years. However, it may be necessary to remove a tree in order to protect your home.
It is often obvious when a tree should be cut down. It is dead, clearly dying, in the way or planted in an inappropriate place.
Sometimes you might not know if tree removal is the best option for you.
This blog post will discuss six signs it is best to have your tree removed.
IS THE TREE A SAFETY-RISK?
These are signs that a tree needs to be removed. We recommend that you consult a professional tree company or certified arborist before deciding whether to remove a tree. Experts can determine if your tree poses a risk to safety and should be removed.
1. THE TREE IS LEANING
Leaning trees can indicate that they are at high risk of falling. To determine if your tree is leaning, find a place in your yard where you can see it from all sides. A new lean in your tree may be a sign that it isn't natural. This could indicate that your tree isn't healthy, that the ground is no longer supporting it or that the roots are damaged and cannot support the tree.
These signs will help you determine if your tree is at risk of falling over:
Although a leaning tree might not pose a danger, it is best to have it inspected by professionals. It is best to inspect your tree as soon as possible. If your tree is leaning, it is considered a danger because it is not structurally sound.
It's easy to avoid making mistakes when pruning trees or shrubs.
Tree and shrub pruning can be done for many reasons. These include reducing the plant's size, opening up its canopy, removing obstacles, improving the shape of the tree or removing any dead or damaged growth. Pruning must be done correctly, regardless of the reason. This will ensure that the tree or shrub is healthy and continues to thrive.
Arborists and aesthetic pruning professionals are trained to recognize the growth patterns of trees and shrubs. The arborists evaluate the overall plant form and then cut or modify any branches that pose a threat to plant health, are dangerous for people or property, or detract from its overall character. Every pruning cut can cause injury to the plant. This is why it is important to use as few branches as possible when pruning. This will result in a vigorous, naturally-shaped plant.
