ASK A TREE COMPANY: WHEN IS IT TIME TO REMOVE A TREE?
October 23, 2018
Any vegetation that will provide shade to the Brandon area is an asset. But every plant’s life comes to an end and will eventually need to be removed from your property before it can cause harm to your home or the area around it. As a homeowner, you need to be aware of the signs that signal it is time to call a tree company for professional removal assistance.
WHAT TO LOOK AT
The Big Picture – Take a few steps back and look at the big picture whether to determine if it is time for removal or not. Are you noticing a lean to the wood that you had never noticed before? Has it overgrown and come in close contact with electrical wires, other plants, your home, pool, or where your children play? Taking notice of changes on your own can be an easy way to tell if it is time to contact a tree company.
The Surrounding Area – Foliage issues can also be seen by taking a close look at the surrounding areas of your Brandon yard. The roots, and if they are decaying or not, are the best way to tell if a plant is healthy or if it’s getting old. You should also be aware of any signs of visible fungus and rotting that may be occurring around the roots and the base of the trunk.
The Trunk – Over the year, cracks and cavities form on the trunk that can be harmful. Only a certified arborist from a tree company can tell if these cracks and cavities formed on the trunk cause for removal through examination. The trunk is the best way to determine whether a tree is structurally sound or not.
LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS AT A TREE COMPANY
Leaving harmful foliage can be danger to you and your family, your home, and even your neighbor’s property. It can also mean paying for damages that could have easily been avoided.
