Native trees like the Maple, Ash, and Magnolia are wonderful additions to the city of Bellingham, Washington and contribute to our daily quality of life. Not only do they add beauty, boost property values and reduce energy costs they help prevent erosion, reduce storm runoff and supply food and shelter for local wildlife. However, in spite of many of our best efforts, trees often need to be removed. That’s why the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following list of reasons you may want to consider a tree care removal service.
Every homeowner hates to see a tree on their property die. However, like all living creatures, trees eventually succumb to age, disease, or damage. When a tree dies, it not only loses its ability to withstand storms, it becomes an unpredictable safety hazard that could fall at any time. The fall of a dead tree or any of its branches can cause extensive damage to nearby people and property. This can create an unsafe liability that needs to be removed as soon a possible to keep your home and loved ones safe.
One of the major reasons that warrant a tree care removal service is disease. Unfortunately, disease can go undetected to the untrained eye. Without immediate care, disease can cause irreversible damage that result in the death of a tree. Insect infestation like the Emerald Ash Borer is another common tree killer. Many beloved Ash trees throughout the Pacific Northwest have died due to this quickly spreading pest. If you suspect a tree on your property may be diseased or infested, it’s important to take action and have it evaluated to determine whether or not it can be saved. Immediate removal may be the only way to stop the spread of insects or disease to other nearby trees.
Unfortunately, healthy trees often need to be removed due to damage. This can include storm, construction or natural causes. Even if the damage seems slight, a tree can become hazardous over time due to its injuries. That’s why it’s important to have a certified arborist evaluate the situation to see if a damaged tree has the ability to recover. At Westcoast Tree Care, we help homeowners make educated and informed decisions about whether or not a damaged tree should be removed.
Trees are tall, majestic creatures that require adequate space and resources to survive. While this is to be expected, it’s important to understand that their surroundings may also change as they grow. Even if you try to plant them in a good location, trees (and their root systems) can often disturb the nearby homes, roads, and powerlines. In a less critical situation, a tree can also obscure a favorite scenic view. Trees that cause these kinds of problems are often good candidates to have removed.
Not all trees are loved by their Bellingham homeowners. In fact, some healthy trees create an unwanted nuisance that requires us to clean up after them. This can include annoying fruit or excessive foliage that needs to be raked up every fall. In other instances, you may just want to reclaim the space where a tree is located. Whatever the case may be, you may want to consider a tree care removal service.
