Trees could provide multiple numbers of benefits to your property. In most cases, having a tree in your property could be the best your property could get but living near or under a tree could be risky. But how would you know that it is the right time to remove your tree? In time, trees become old and eventually become unsafe if you will keep it in your property. In this case, having a tree removed might be your best option than facing risk every day for you and your family. Just in case you noticed something not right about your tree, do not hesitate to call a tree removal service and ask help from a certified arborist on identifying the issue and the steps on how to deal with it. Always remember that a dead branch could fall anytime even without strong winds so do not give a chance to something like this.
There are many ways in order that you could identify if the tree is at risk of losing or falling a branch, one is by looking at the tree in the position that you could see all the branch clearly. Carefully examining if there are leaning part of the tree. Although the tree could lean naturally, if you are not sure if the leaning from the start or just leaned recently, you must contact an arborist because leaning tree might also be a sign that the tree might be dying or is dead already that will cause sooner or later to fall over.
Next is to inspect the surrounding ground of a tree. Looking through its roots could tell you the condition of the tree. If you see that there are roots that are decaying or has been damaged, this simply means that the tree lost its structural support that may fall in due time. Look at the base where the tree touches the ground if there is a space in between. This means that the tree has a new lean if you will see this sign and it might be that the tree is structurally unstable. Call a certified arborist to help determine the condition of the tree if it has become rotted extensively and if there might be a sign that the tree is eaten away by insects by the amount of sawdust or fungus at its base.
Third is to inspect the trunk if there are cracks or any cavities that could indicate if the tree is structurally strong. Having signs of cavities could not mean that the tree must be removing but they must be examined extensively. The arborist can check again if the cavity is large enough that the tree could sustain. One of the most noticeable signs is through its trunk, you will know if the tree is rotten, sick, dead or perfectly healthy.
The last way is to identify if the tree is free of risk through canopy inspection. This examination must be done by an arborist because there is some part of the tree is hard to see.
