If your tree has become an eyesore in your yard, then you may want to consider tree removal. Although it is not always obvious, there are signs that will alert you as to when the tree should be removed. Of course, removing the tree should only be done by trained professionals, but here are some facts you should know about tree removal.
Reasons to Remove the Tree
There are obvious reasons to remove your tree from your yard, the most common being that the tree is dead. You may have one of the following reasons to remove your tree: your tree is declining in health (you will be able to see the tops of the tree dying); a storm has damaged your tree; or your tree is too close to your home. Other factors may include the tree leaning towards a particular target, such as your home, or the roots of the tree are a danger to the foundation of your home.
However, there are some reasons that you may not be aware of. For example, if the tree has a major disease or an insect problem, you may want to consider tree removal to prevent it from spreading to other trees. Also, if your yard is overcrowded with trees, it is probably wise to decide which trees are the healthiest and remove the rest.
When to Keep a Tree
This decision should be left up to a professional so that they can assess the level of threat the tree poses to your yard. However, if you would like to keep your tree, you can begin the process of tree care. This consists primarily of trimming away any damaged parts of the tree and removing extra weight. Doing this can slow the decay of the tree and give you more time to enjoy it.
This is Not a DIY Project
Although it may seem tempting, homeowners are advised to not to remove a tree by themselves. Contacting professionals will ensure that your tree is removed in a safe manner. Professionals have experience in tree removal and have the equipment to remove branches and wood that will be left behind after the tree is removed.
