Earnest Tree Service: What to Consider Before Removing Trees

Last Updated 4/29/2024Posted in Our Work, Trusted in Tree Services, Homepage Blog Preview

At Earnest Tree Service, we understand that the decision to remove a tree from your property—whether at your home or business—is not one to be taken lightly. To ensure the health and safety of your landscape and structures, it's crucial to know when and why to bring in a tree removal expert. Here are some things you should consider when choosing to cut down or remove a tree, and why expert assistance is vital.

1. Tree Health: The health of a tree is the most critical factor in deciding whether it needs to be removed. Signs of a sick tree include dead branches, trunk decay, fungi growth like mushrooms at the base of the tree, and significant loss of leaves or needles.

2. Tree Location: The location of a tree is just as important as its health. Trees that are too close to buildings, power lines, or other structures may pose a risk during storms or windy conditions. Trees that could impact public spaces or roads are also candidates for assessment. Our team can evaluate whether pruning or complete removal is necessary to enhance safety.

3. Tree Size and Age: Large, old trees are not only beautiful but also serve as important habitats and ecosystems. However, their size and age can make them more susceptible to disease and structural problems.

4. Potential Hazards:  Determining potential hazards is crucial. This includes assessing weak branches, leaning trunks, or roots that are disturbing foundations, sidewalks, or plumbing systems. We can help you understand the risks associated with these issues and advise on the best course of action, including whether preemptive removal is necessary to prevent potential damage.
