Why You Shouldn't Keep the Tree You Once Loved in Your Property

Posted on

You must have come across several things that add beauty to your home, and you can't exhaust the list without mentioning trees. Trees are beautiful! They give the outdoor space of your property a naturally appealing look that the eyes of those who visit you can't resist. Trees provide the shade you need when the scorching hot days come. However, it's sad that you can't allow some trees to occupy the outdoor space any longer. You don't need a tree that makes you and your family prone to hazards and accidents. Contact a certified arborist to remove your trees if you notice any of these signs.

Invasive Roots

While some tree roots grow horizontally, others grow vertically into the ground. The horizontal roots, also known as the secondary roots, can be intrusive and cause damage to your structure. Tree roots that grow into the curb, main sewer lines and plumbing pipes will damage your structures in a big way. Furthermore, those invasive roots cause serious plumbing blockage and leaks to the sewerage and plumbing systems. Invasive roots also make it hard to clean your walkways and mow the grass. If the trees with disastrous roots aren't removed in good time, people who trip over these roots can sustain serious injuries.

Wrong Trees

Most people buy trees before they bear some critical aspects in mind. They realise the tree doesn't have desirable features they were looking for when it's fully grown. In this case, the only available option is removing the undesirable tree. If the climate in your area isn't favourable to some of the trees you have in your property, they won't add curb appeal to your home. They would experience stagnated growth and could be come sick or weak. In this case, contact a professional arborist to remove them and replace them with tree species that thrive in your region.

Diseased Trees

It's dangerous to have diseased trees on your property. Diseased trees aren't dangerous only to your property, but they are also dangerous to your family members and visitors. If you treated a sick tree that still shows disease signs, you should remove it before it falls on your property. Unhealthy trees have discoloured or yellow leaves with odd-looking nodules and no veins. The branches of diseased trees are weak, and they fall-off without warning. Keeping a tree with rotting branches, trunk or roots on your property can be dangerous. Trees with fungus growth, those that show the presence of pests and those with overhanging branches should be removed. 

No tree removal task is easy to handle yourself if you aren't trained in this area. Arborists know the safest methods to use when removing the unwanted trees. They also examine the trees first to know if they would use some invasive techniques or simple methods to remove them.
