Does Your Tree Obstruct Visibility?

One thing to consider when determining whether or not a tree should be cut down or removed is if something is growing on it. If there is an invasive plant such as ivy growing on your tree you may want to have it removed rather than cut down. This is because invasive plants can cause damage to trees and shrubs and take over their space. If this happens then they could also spread more invasive species throughout your yard.

In addition, invasive plants tend to grow quickly so they can outcompete other plants for sunlight and nutrients. They also often spread rapidly through underground roots making them difficult to remove once they’ve taken hold.

Is something Growing on Your Tree?

While the absence of buds can indicate a problem, too much growth in the wrong places also can indicate a problem. Are you noticing unusual plants around the base of your tree? Do the roots stick up from the ground?

These are indications that a tree is sick. When you notice mushrooms sprouting around the base of the tree, it means that the tree is decaying. Honey fungus, in particular, will thrive in moist areas and wreak havoc on tree roots.

The presence of ants or beetles may indicate that your tree is sick, too. They tend to take up residence in spaces that are rotted or weakened. 

The danger is that with a tree rotting at the base, the rest of the tree won’t be stable. At this point, hiring experts to help with tree removal is the safest solution. 

How Tree Removal Works

Before removing any tree from your property it is important to understand how it works. Trees provide many benefits including shade, clean air, beauty, and wildlife habitat. When trees are properly maintained they can last for decades. However, if left unattended they can become diseased or damaged due to environmental conditions. At that point, they must be removed in order to prevent further problems.

The first step in removing a tree is to identify which one needs to be removed. You can do this by using a tape measure to find the circumference of the trunk. Next, use a compass to mark where the center of the tree is located. Once you have determined these two points, draw a line between them. This will help you locate the base of each branch.

Next, look for signs of disease or decay. These include:

• Dead branches

• Stumps with exposed wood

• Bark that has been loosened or missing

• Branches that bend easily

Once you have identified all areas of concern, contact a local arborist who specializes in tree care. Arborists are trained professionals who can safely remove trees without harming surrounding vegetation or structures.
