Deadwood is a term used to describe any dead or dying branches of a tree. As a hazardous threat to any Portland, Oregon homeowner, it can be extremely unpredictable and can fall at any time. This can create a very dangerous or life-threatening situation for any people or property located below. That’s why it’s important to contact Westcoast Tree Care to safely remove any deadwood to improve a tree’s overall safety, health, and appearance.
The Importance of Deadwood Removal
Deadwood removal is different than pruning. While there are specific times of year that pruning is recommended, deadwood is best removed as soon as it is noticed. This is due to the fact that it presents a large variety of safety hazards. Heavy branches and falling limbs, especially in areas where children, pets, and people congregate, can cause serious harm. Likewise, falling deadwood can damage your home and property.
Deadwood can also pose a threat to the health of your trees. Insect infestations and disease are common in decaying wood and can lead to the ultimate death of your tree.
