Trees offer many benefits to your property. Aesthetic appeal, shade in the summertime and buffering from the cold are some just to name a few. Periodically, trees can become ill or suffer damage that causes them to die. Watching a tree die can sometimes be an emotional process, but it can also be a danger to your property. Instead of risking your family’s safety or your property, here are four common signs Five Star Tree Services that suggest you keep an eye out for. If you happen to notice these signs, it may be time to uproot and remove your dying tree.
Trees can get sick just like you and me, and in some cases, tree sickness is fatal to the tree. There are many ways to prevent illness and manage contracted disease in your trees. However, sometimes there simply is no cure. If you notice that your tree has withered branches, leaves are changing color or drying in the offseason; it is probably sick. Black bark is also a sign of illness. If you find black bark you should give a professional arborist a call to evaluate the tree right away. If it is determined that there is no viable treatment for your sick tree, sometimes looking into our Richmond Hill tree removal services is the best option.
Severe Tree Damage
Many things can cause tree damage, but the most common culprit is storms. Getting struck by lightning, being bent or being bent in half are just some results of storm damage that can cause tree death. Broken or cracked branches can be pruned, but a damaged trunk signals a need for tree removal.
Even if you don’t mind how the damaged trunk looks if it is severe enough, it can be a risk to your property and family. Mild trunk damage can heal. However, extensive damage has no hope. Depending on the level of damage, harsh wind can cause the tree to fall over, directly on your home or even people passing by. In these cases, it is best to call Five Star Tree Services to have your tree uprooted before the worst possible result occurs.
There are times when growing trees may begin to encroach on nearby structures. This can be as simple as a tree trunk growing through a fence or as serious as the roots of your tree pushing towards the foundation of your home. Taller trees may even cause damage when their branches brush against the shingles on your roof or knock against the glass on your home. Some instances such as your tree affecting your foundation call for immediate tree removal. Other cases such as a boundary fence being affected can easily be repaired.
Sometimes a property owner may decide they want to change the look of their garden on their property. Depending on what change you have in mind, tree removal may be the only option. It would be quite challenging to build a pool around a tree, so it would have to go.
