Preventative tree care is a necessary part of homeownership in Eugene, Oregon. While trees add beauty to our landscapes, they can also create unsafe situations if they’re not properly maintained. That’s why it’s important not to forget about tree trimming and removal services. In our previous blog, Westcoast Tree Care discussed the importance of removing dead or dying trees. In this conclusion of our part-two series, our certified arborist would like to share with you tips on how to determine whether it’s time to remove an unhealthy tree.
Below are three signs to look out for that may indicate a necessary tree removal service:
A Sick Or Dying Tree
A tree that is at least 50% damaged should be removed. Sick or dying trees with clear signs of internal decay not only look bad, but they can spread unwanted disease to nearby healthy trees and plants.
A leaning tree is much more hazardous than a vertical one. Even more, if a normally vertical tree suddenly starts to lean it may have a compromised root system, which is very dangerous. In this type of situation, it’s important to contact a certified arborist as soon as possible to have them evaluate the health and structural integrity of your tree.
Deadwood & Branches
Large trees with dead or damaged branches pose an immediate danger to you, nearby buildings, and your loved ones. Deadwood can fall unexpectedly at any time and cause serious harm or property damage. Even worse, they can breach nearby power lines which can create another serious hazard.
