Trees may seem like permanent features in your yard, but we can assure you that there will come a time when you need to assess the status and determine the fate of each one. In some cases, a tree will need to be removed entirely. Here are 4 times that you should consider hiring a tree cutting service to have a tree removed.
Risk of Falling
You don’t want to run the risk of having a tree come down in your yard, as it could damage people or property. Watch for signs of instability, such as leaning and swaying. If you are unsure of the safety of your tree, have it evaluated by a professional.
Infestation or Disease
Though there are some cases in which pruning will take care of the damaged areas of trees caused by pest infestations and disease, there are other instances where the best course of action is to remove the tree entirely. Watch for signs such as dead branches, trunk damage, and decay.
Proximity to Power Lines
Trees should never be allowed to grow into power lines. Some people choose to just have the close limbs removed, but others feel it isn’t worth the hassle and have trees under power lines taken out. These removals can be dangerous and should only be done by a professionals.
In some cases, a tree simply won’t fit in with your plans for landscaping. For example, your tree may grow to be much wider or taller than you had planned, cast shade where you don’t want it, or drop debris that litters your yard.
