Pullman tree removal isn’t something most homeowners think about until something bad happens. This includes sudden breakage, splitting, or a tree falling over completely. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following situations that call for an emergency tree removal to prevent further damage to your property.
Hiring A Certified Arborist
It’s important never to try and remove a tree on your own. If you haven’t been formally trained in arboriculture, you could hurt yourself, resulting in serious injury or even death. Even more, tree removal is time-consuming, and you can cause property damage in the process.
A certified arborist is professionally trained in all the proper felling techniques, equipment, and safety procedures necessary to safely remove a tree from your property. By trusting Westcoast Tree Care, you will ensure a swift, safe removal without causing harm or property damage.
Even the most robust trees can bow and break during extreme weather. Depending on the type of storm, tree damage can vary greatly.
Heavy winds from storms can result in a windsail effect where the canopy of a tree catches too much air, uprooting it from the soil. Another common injury is a crown twist where an uneven canopy will twist in the wind, damaging the trunk of a tree beyond repair.,
An overabundance of water from downpours and flooding can loosen the soil around a tree. This, in turn, exposes the root system, weakening a tree’s ability to anchor, causing it to topple over.
Ice & Snow
Ice buildup and heavy snow can overwhelm a tree, causing its branches to break or collapse under the weight. While coniferous evergreens are known for standing up to these conditions, broadleaf evergreens hold more snow, increasing the risk of damage.
Like all living things, trees don’t stand up against lightning. When hit by lightning, the cells in a tree boil, peeling off its bark or burning the tree itself. In some cases, a lightning bolt can snap entire branches off or cause an explosion.
Disease & Infestation
Sometimes the reason to remove a tree comes from within. Disease, fungus, and insects can enter a tree’s wounds, slowly killing it from the inside. At a certain point, a tree won’t survive, making an emergency tree removal the quickest, safest solution.
Signs of disease and infestation include:
- Yellow, wilted or spotted leaves.
- White dusty mildew.
- Lumpy, spherical growths (Gall).
- New shoot clusters.
- Hollow pits (Cankers).
- Holes in bark or leaves.
Strategic pruning and preventative tree care can help remove broken branches without harming a tree. However, there are certain situations where broken branches can cause a tree to die. For example, if a tree has lost more than half its limbs, it will be unable to produce enough leaves to feed itself during the growing season. Branch loss can also result in a loss of strength, stability, and form.
A Leaning Tree
A tree that grows at a severe angle, develops a sudden lean, or shows other signs of damage like uprooting should be evaluated by a certified arborist. While a leaning tree may not be a cause for concern, it could also topple over at any given time. A certified arborist will be able to access the current state of a tree and determine if an emergency tree removal is needed.
