Trees enhance our enjoyment of the outdoors and add to the appeal of our landscaping, but sometimes tree removal in Kennett Square, PA is necessary. For the safety of structures and people you may have to remove dead or dying trees. You can inspect your own trees, however, if you find signs of deterioration, consult with a Certified Arborist or Tree Risk Assessor to determine the extent of the damage. Some things to look for are:
In a large tree, dead branches may be less obvious and may require examination by a tree service professional. Large trees pose a bigger risk if tree death occurs, however, because large branches could fall from high in the tree into power lines or structures, or onto people underneath. These large trees are also more likely to break or fall in high winds or storms.
Pests can infest a tree and cause damage or even death. For example, the emerald ash borer, an insect that has destroyed ash trees across the country, causes the eventual death of trees within two years if unchecked. If you see signs such as canopy thinning, D-shaped holes or S-shaped grooves on the bare tree, call a Certified Arborist immediately. He can determine whether the tree can be saved or if a tree removal from your Kennett Square yard may be necessary.
Fungus growth on the surface of a tree indicates some sort of internal rotting. Unchecked rot compromises the strength of the tree and creates a risk for the tree falling.
Sprouts forming at the base of a mature tree indicate tree stress. Sometimes this occurs when nearby construction has been performed, jarring the tree or compacting the soil around it. Root sprouts or epicormic shoots could also occur due to stress from too much sunlight (due to removal of other trees or thinning of the overall canopy.
