Many homeowners forget to maintain the trees on their property with preventative tree care services due to their busy schedules and families to care for. However, when you neglect to periodically examine your trees for signs of damage and disease, this can put you, your family, and your property at risk. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following reasons you shouldn’t ignore damaged trees.
Harm to People
The most important reason to be aware of the state of your trees is that diseased or damaged trees can create a hazardous situation that can seriously harm people and pets below. When a tree is sick, damaged or unstable, its branches are at risk of falling and injuring anyone nearby. Even worse, when an entire tree or branch falls, it can happen very quickly, making it very unpredictable and particularly hazardous. That’s why it’s essential to keep an eye on the state of your trees and contact a certified arborist if you spot any damage or signs of disease.
For the same reasons that ignoring diseased or damaged trees can cause harm to people and pets, this type of hazard can also cause unwanted problems for your home and property. When a large branch or an entire tree falls onto a car or nearby structure like your home, the damage can be significant and costly. While insurance often covers these types of damages, getting them fixed can be time consuming, causing you tremendous stress and headaches.
Damage to Other Trees
When a tree is diseased, dead or in danger of falling, it can result in additional problems that affect nearby trees on your property. When a branch or an entire tree falls, it can cause severe damage to other trees growing near it. Additionally, disease and insect infestations can easily spread from one tree to another when ignored. That’s why it’s important to regularly check the health and state of your trees and contact a certified arborist if you spot anything wrong.
