Reasons to Remove a Tree
When is it finally time to remove that tree? Ideally, before the worst happens.
A lot of times, a tree can become so familiar that it’s hard to imagine what your yard would be like without it. They’re beautiful, they create shade, attract wildlife, and make a lovely sound in the breeze, but sometimes an old or decaying tree can be much more harm to keep than it’s worth. It is often a difficult decision to let a tree go, but it’s important to look at the big picture. Consider the future of your property and how the tree is likely to progress and think about the issues we outlined for you below.
We recommend that a dead or dying tree be removed as soon as you recognize it. The longer you put it off, more dangerous the tree can become, and the more dangerous it can be to remove it.
Obvious reasons for tree removal
- The tree is dead.
- The tree is unhealthy. Take notice if the top of the tree or branches are dying back, or the trunk shows signs of decay.
- The tree was damaged in a storm. If enough of the tree was damaged it may be beyond repair.
- The tree is growing too close to – or the roots are encouraged on – your house, barn, utility lines or other structures.
- The tree is leaning in a dangerous direction, like toward your house, driveway, deck or your children’s’ play area. Sometimes this is not so obvious!
- The tree drops troublesome leaves or needles, sap, seeds, cotton, and/or branches.
- The tree is blocking your views or is creating too much shade and inhibiting your lawn to grow.
- You are planning landscape renovations that would damage the tree.
Not so obvious reasons for tree removal (Have an arborist look for these issues)
- The tree has structural problems, such as interior decay.
- The tree has formed a bad crotch.
- There are cracks in the main trunk or leaders.
- The tree is too large for its location and poses a danger if it should fall or drop branches.
- The tree is in the way of construction or will be mortally damaged by heavy equipment.
- A disease or insect infestation will eventually cause tree death or spread to other trees.
- There is significant crowding among trees on your property.
