Removing a tree should be the last resort when maintaining your yard. However, there are cases when trees become a safety hazard, and we are left with no choice but to get rid of them. For large trees, a qualified tree service company should be used as the process can require specialize equipment and skill.
We have listed common signs to determine if your tree needs to be eliminated.
A tree that is dead is no longer useful in any way and can even attract heaps of insects and pests in your landscape. If mushrooms are present at the base of your tree, this may be a sign that it is already dead. Even when springtime comes, it will no longer grow leaves and will lose its vigor eventually. It will continue to dry up and lose its color and leaves will continue to fall without hope of growing back. A tree like this is an eyesore to your landscape and needs to be removed immediately.
It's Too Close for Comfort
If your tree is leaning forward, it may be a sign that you need to have it removed immediately. This can be caused by wind and maturity and means that you should remove it to prevent damages to your property.
It's Overgrown or Messy
Trees that have grown excessively can block your view and become an obstruction to your way and vehicles on the street. It will be a great nuisance for you to keep this kind of tree, so it is better to have it removed. Also, some trees produce an excessive amount of seeds, and it is just hassling to clean them every morning, so it will be more convenient to eliminate it.
