Signs that Tree Removal is Necessary

Dying/dead trees

Diseased or dying trees, in addition to looking unsightly and reducing your property value, can pose a great risk for damaging property and injuring people or pets. Even for trees that are still alive, dead branches must be removed because heavy snow and high winds can cause them to fall onto homes, vehicles, and power lines. Protect your family’s well-being by removing dead trees right away. Treatment for diseased trees can be considered with our arborists to see what if anything can be done.

Heavily damaged trees

Healthy trees can be damaged by severe winds, heavy rain, storms, and heavy snow fall. Be sure to look for warning signs in a tree, including: weak roots and stumps, hollow areas and splitting. 

Tree growth in the wrong direction

This is typically common in the case of trees that are located near homes and other structures or power lines. If the branches are growing in the wrong direction, they can be redirected or trimmed, but if the tree is posing a risk to property, power lines or if it may cause other hazards, it should be removed. Trees may also need to be removed if it will prevent an addition or expansion. 

Tree roots cracking foundations

Some trees may need to be removed if the roots show signs of cracking foundations in walkways, sidewalks and driveways.
