Tree Removal

Sometimes there is no other option but to remove a tree. Trees that are structurally weak can pose serious threats to people and property. It is crucial to have a trained professional evaluate the risk of any tree that appears to be in decline if it poses a danger to anything in the area. It is important to remember that anything within a distance of 1.5x the height of the tree is within it's potential target zone. Here are a few things to look for in a declining/hazardous tree:





Crown dieback

 
 


Decay, especially on main trunk

 
 


Leaning towards a target, posing an obvious threat

 
 




Cracks

 
 



Tree planted too close to house, potential to cause structural damage

 
 




Severe storm damage

Other signs to look for:

The appearance of abnormally small leaves, pale green coloration of leaves, unusually slow growth, premature development of fall leaf coloration, early leaf drop, dieback of twigs and branches, wilting of leaves and tender new growth, peeling bark, and presence of fungi protruding from stems and branches.
