By this point in the spring, your trees should be completely green and bestowing their peaceful look on your property. Trees do a lot of good for your property and they should be taken care of to maintain their benefits throughout the years. But what do you do if one or more of your trees look less healthy than the others? Does it need some pruning, a little treatment, or do you need to call a tree removal service to take it away? Here are three signs that will tell you that you need to hire a tree removal service.
1. Hazardous Location
The growth pattern of a tree may actually endanger your home or another part of your property. If the tree branches are touching the siding, for example, it could promote the growth of mold on the siding. A tree growing into power lines is a more obvious example of a dangerous situation that should be addressed as soon as possible by a tree removal service.
2. Check the Branches
If the branches on your tree are dead or hanging on for dear life, this could become a dangerous situation especially when summer thunderstorms start rolling in. No one wants to be stuck with the bill for a roof repair because a tree branch fell on it. Pruning may be able to remedy the problem over the long haul, but removing the tree completely is a more immediate and permanent fix.
3. Checking for Disease
If your tree is showing signs of disease, a licensed tree removal service like Nelson Tree Specialist can assess it to determine whether it needs to be removed. Some signs you should look for include:
- Discolored leaves
- Unusual bumps on the bark
- Fungus growing on the trunk or branches
- Leaves fall off early
In some instances, the disease can be managed with precise pruning and rehabilitation, but if it has progressed enough, removing it may be the only option.
