Being a homeowner comes with a lot of perks, but it also comes with responsibilities. If you have trees on your property, you already know that they can pose a hazard if they are damaged in a storm. A damaged tree can pose a risk to your family and your home if it is not properly cared for following a storm. If you notice broken branches or even a leaning tree following a storm, it is a good idea to give the experts here at Five Star Tree Services a call. Our highly qualified and certified arborists are able to assess trees and move forward with an emergency tree removal if that is required.
When Should You Consider Tree Removal?
It can be hard to know when to remove a tree or when it can be saved. A professional tree service will be able to assess the tree and make a treatment decision on the spot. If you notice your trees displaying any of the symptoms listed below, give our skilled arborists a call, and well will come out right away.
If you notice any tree branches listing or resting on the top of your house, it is important to take care of it right away. Broken branches can damage the roof or break windows which will cost thousands of dollars to repair. When the lower tree trunk is broken or cracked, or the main trunk is cracked, chances are the whole tree will need to be uprooted.
Trees that have large stems that have separated from the tree can lead to both weakness and decay. If the structure of the tree is not healthy, it may need to be removed. Any tree that has started to lean is also a hazard to both your home and your family.
Visibly dead trees should always be removed. It does not matter how long they have been dead, they will always pose a danger to the surrounding property. It is important to have dead branches trimmed as soon as possible. If they fall on your home, it can cause serious damage.
More Signs Your Tree May Need To Be Treated or Removed
There are some signs that can be harder to miss that signal your tree may need to be removed. If there is heavy soil that is collecting around the trunk of the tree, it means that the roots have not been able to deeply secure themselves. While this does not mean the tree has died, it will be easy to topple.
Trees that have fungus growing at the base such as mushrooms or other fungi, it is a sign of decay and disease. When the small branches or twigs on your tree fail to bloom, it is a sure sign that your tree is sick or dying.
