Lush, healthy trees greatly enhance the beauty of your Beaverton, Oregon landscape. On the flip side, however, a dead tree can not only be an eyesore that detracts from the curb appeal of your home, it can create a hazardous situation for people and property below. Unfortunately, there are a wide variety of factors that can severely affect a tree’s health. These include severe wind, seasonal storms, drought, improper pruning, fungus and insect infestations.
However, you should never try to remove a dead or dying tree on your own. Doing so can result in property damage, injury or even death. That’s why you should always contact the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care to inspect and remove a dead or dying tree.
Dead Trees are Dangerous
When a tree dies, decay and decomposition gradually compromise its structural integrity. Deadwood and weakened branches are more susceptible to falling during a storm or under their own weight. Not only can people and pets suffer serious injuries or even death from being hit by falling deadwood, an entire tree can fall over creating a variety of hazardous situations.
Tree Diseases are Contagious
If a tree dies due to a disease, other nearby plants and trees can contract that disease. If you suspect a tree on your property is diseased or dying, it’s important to schedule a tree inspection with the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care. This will allow us to identify the cause of a tree’s death and help us prevent the spread of disease.
Dead Trees Can Attract Unwanted Pests
From rats to termites, dead trees can attract any number of unwanted pests. Even worse, these pests can move on from a dead tree to the structure of your home. By removing a dead tree from your property, you can stop the spread of unwanted pests at the source.
