Trees are vital. They play one of the most essential role in our community which we tend to take for granted or know little about its significance. You may see it in your backyard, or maybe along the sidewalks or neighbor’s yard. It may vary in size and height of trunks and color of leaves depending on type of the tree. But have you ever thought how important this kind of species are?
Well, since the beginning, trees served human being by providing main life’s necessity: food and oxygen. As the time goes by, tree’s function has also evolved. Trees begun to provide shelter, construction materials, and medicine. This magnificent solid structure tends to be long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old. That is how long they can serve our community. But what if your tree started to develop problems and cause some troubles?
When to remove a tree?
When a tree develops problems or cause some troubles, owners usually have a hard time deciding when to remove a tree. It is either because of their emotional attachment to nature or lack of knowledge of the said subject. To help you with this difficult situation, here we’ll share some ideas to consider in deciding when to remove a tree:
1. Structural Damage
If your tree has structural damage or wounds and cracks most particularly on the trunk, there is a big possibility of presence of internal decay. You might also want to consider checking the severity of the damage on the trunk. Most of the time the removal of the tree depends on how huge the damage is.
2. Wood-decay-fungus at the base of the trunk
Do not be so sure that all mushrooms residing under your tree are associated with rot diseases. In most cases, wood-decay-fungus growing on the trees are the main reason for vast internal rot. For you to find out? Call a professional arborist to inspect your trees.
3. Dead or hanging branches
One of the most obvious signs to remove a tree is the existence of dead or hanging branches. It poses an outright risk for your safety as well as your property. Sooner or later, these dead or hanging branches will fall, maybe due to a weather intervention or natural stability of the tree. It will soon bring damage to your property and risk in your family or in worst case, death in your community.
4. A leaning tree
It is more of a hazard than those growing/standing vertically. This sudden situation of the tree indicates weakening or breakage of roots. Be not so relaxed with this kind event, you can never can tell when this leaning tree will fall to your property.
5. Growth of tree near power line and power pole.
