Having a tree removed is something many homeowners face at one point or another. While there are so many beautiful trees in the Treasure Valley, many of them need to be removed. While it’s easy for an arborist to know when a tree has become compromised, very few homeowners are aware of the signs or symptoms that warrant a Boise tree removal service. That’s why Mountain West Arbor Care would like to provide you with the most common tree removal scenarios to look out for.
An infected tree can be detrimental to your yard. Why? Disease or infestation can quickly spread to any nearby trees or plants. If this happens, you’ll end up having to replace your entire landscape. That’s why it’s important to handle any infection issues quickly before they become extremely serious. As soon as you notice a tree is sick, it’s important to have it inspected by a certified arborist to see if it should be removed to protect your property.
Having a dead tree in your yard is not only ugly, but it can also be extremely dangerous as well. Why? Dead trees eventually weaken over time. This means its heavy branches will begin to fall off, and pests like birds, squirrels, and insects will make a home in the dead wood. A dead tree can also fall over unexpectedly at any time, which can damage surrounding property or hurt those you love.
If you have a tree on your property that isn’t quite dead but isn’t exactly healthy, you may need to have it removed. This is a beginning phase to the dead tree scenario mentioned above. If this is the case, it’s often better to have a tree removed early on, so none of the issues we listed occur. Signs of an unhealthy tree include discolored leaves, a lack of foliage, or dead wood. If you spot any of these signs, there’s a good chance you have an unhealthy tree.
Cracks in a tree are a common sign that a tree needs to be removed because it proves it is either sick, weak, or dying. That’s why it’s important to have a certified arborist inspect it depending on the size of a tree and the depth of a crack. If a tree fails due to a crack, you don’t want to put your home and family in danger. Furthermore, you don’t want to try and remove a tree on your own, as this often leads to more danger and damage.
Crowding and overgrowth are often reasons to have a tree removed. If you have a number of trees all competing for the same space, you will start to notice a decline in their health and growth. This is due to a lack of water and sunlight supply. When this happens, you will start to see the trees on your property fail. While it may seem like a good idea to plant trees close together to fill in certain areas of your property, they will start to decline over time. At that point, you end up with a graveyard of trees instead of the beautiful yard you were hoping for.
If a tree on your property develops a sudden lean, this could be a sign of a weakened root system. In turn, a leaning tree is extremely hazardous and should be removed immediately by a certified arborist to protect your property and loved ones. Any tree leaning more than 15 degrees from a vertical position should be removed promptly.
