Normally, the trees in your yard look beautiful and strong enough to endure all the seasonal elements that Oregon has to offer. However, there are circumstances when a tree can weaken, increasing its risk of falling over. While not always obvious, trees can develop diseases or other structural issues that can make them an unwanted safety hazard to your property and loved ones.
Though trees offer shade, beauty, fruit and other endearing characteristics to your landscape, they can become sick or structurally unsound over time, requiring immediate action to avoid injury or property damage due to the risk of it failing. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to share a few red flags that may indicate a hazardous tree removal.
Signs You Need A Hazardous Tree Removal
A Sudden Lean
Normally, it’s easy to recognize a tree’s normal growth pattern and how it stands nestled in your yard. If a tree suddenly starts to lean to one side, this is can be a very strong indication that you are in need of an hazardous tree removal. When a tree starts to lean, the dangers of it falling over increase, especially during a heavy wind storm.
While it may not always be obvious, it’s important to inspect your trees for any sign of disease or other serious ailments and catch the problems early. Common symptoms of diseased trees include spotted leaves, dying or wilted foliage, unusual growths, fungi, and more. If your tree is displaying any visible signs such as these, it’s important to call a certified arborist immediately. If left untreated, a diseased tree can become an unwanted safety risk and an hazardous tree removal may become necessary to prevent the disease from spreading to nearby healthy trees.
As a tree matures and grows taller, its branches can start to spread over the roofline of your home or other nearby buildings. During extreme weather conditions or a heavy wind storm, these branches can break and fall, causing significant damage to your home in the process. That’s why preventative tree care like pruning and trimming is important to prevent serious damages and costly repairs to your home. Only a certified arborist should trim away any dangerous, overhanging branches or remove a tree that’s located too close to your home to prevent it from causing any unwanted property damage.
When a severe storm blows through, it can severely impact the health and integrity of your tree. Branches can break and overhang, or even worse, it can cause a once sturdy tree to uproot or lean to one side. When bad weather impacts the trees on your property, it’s imperative they are removed before serious injury or property damage occurs.
