If you have a tree with dead branches, a tree that is uprooting, or a tree that is entirely dead, it can be a hazard to your property and its residents. Fortunately we’re here to help. We can remove tree limbs and cut down trees entirely. We find that hazardous trees can arise for a variety of reasons:

Damage Due to Age

If you have a tree that borders on being ancient, it may just die naturally. As trees age, they may lose branches, they may lose roots, and they may fail to produce foliage. In any case, it may be an indication that your tree is on its last limb. Ask a certified arborist to take a look at your tree to judge whether or not the tree can be saved, or whether it is a hazard.

Damage Due to Fungus & Pests

Fungi and pests can damage or completely kill trees. Fortunately, in many instances, a tree can be saved from complete destruction if fungus and pests are noticed in time. Keep a keen eye out for dead and dying limbs, as well as signs of pests and fungus (you may notice a lack of bark, small holes bored into the tree, and discoloration, among other signs). If you notice any of these indications, it’s time to have your tree checked out. You could save your tree from more serious damage.

Damage Due to Weight

If your tree is poorly balanced, if it’s growing in poor soil, if it has weak roots, or if it has been blown over by the wind, your tree may fall over. That can be a major concern for your safety, as well as the safety of your home and property (or your neighbor’s!). If you notice that your tree is beginning to lean, you should take action immediately. In some instances, a tree may be cabled and tied down to reverse damage. In other cases, it may be best to remove the tree before it falls.

Damage Due to Natural Disasters

Lightning strikes, high winds, snap colds, overexposure to sun, and other natural occurrences can damage your trees. With these unique instances, it is, once again, best to speak to a trained arborist. Your arborist will be able to assess the damage that has been done, and she will assess whether or not the tree can be saved. Sometimes a tree may just need to recover over time (e.g. if the tree has endured a cold snap). On the other hand, let’s say your tree trunk has been struck by lightning—you probably won’t be able to save the tree.
