Healthy, beautiful trees add shade and aesthetic beauty to your yard. But dead trees create a potential hazard that needs to be addressed promptly. Aside from the sake of your home’s curb appeal, a dead tree can present a variety of safety risks to you and your family. As your leading Eugene tree care provider, Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with part one of our blog series of the reasons you should have dead trees removed from your property.
Dead Trees Harbor Unwanted Pests
When a tree is dead or dying, it can harbor a wide variety of unwanted pests. From birds to rodents to insects, a dead tree can turn into the perfect breeding ground. In particular, termites love to eat away at dead trees and can further spread to your home and nearby buildings.
Dead Trees Can Spread Disease
Dead or dying trees can spread disease to nearby trees and plants. Without swift action by a certified arborist, you run the risk of the disease spreading across your property, potentially ruining your costly landscape (and even your neighbor’s too).
Dead Trees Diminish Your Landscape
Plain and simple, dead trees are unattractive. There’s just no other way of putting it. All the money you invest in boosting the curb appeal of your home will be for nothing if you have sick or dead trees in your front yard.
Dead Trees Are A Safety Risk
Over time, dead trees lose their structural integrity so branches and deadwood can fall at any time (especially during high winds and heavy storms). Even worse, a tree can fall over and collapse, causing injury or damage to your home and property.
