The trees in the yard of your Dallas, TX, home are important for a few different reasons. First, trees are great because they can provide shade when you are sitting outside on a hot summer day. Trees that hang over the home can provide shade when you are inside the home, and protection from the elements. Finally, the trees in your yard provide curb appeal. As long as the trees are healthy and well taken care of, they can make your yard look great.
Because your trees serve so many purposes, it is essential that you care for them properly. Unfortunately, regardless of how well you care for your trees, issues can occur that would require the assistance of an emergency tree service. The best way to protect your home and family is to be able to recognize the signs that you need a tree service so that you can call right away.
#1 A Branch or Tree Is Threatening the Safety Of Your Home
If there is a tree close to your home and a branch is hanging above, dangerously close to your home, you should call an emergency tree service. The tree expert can remove the branches that are putting your home at risk. If you wait too long to call a tree service, the branch can fall, causing damage to your home and anyone or anything below.
The same is true if there is an entire tree that is putting your home at risk. If you have a tree on your property that is leaning to one side, you will need to call a tree service right away to have the tree taken down. If you wait, it could take just one big gust of wind to knock the tree down right on your house.
#2 A Branch Is Dangerously Close To Your Power Lines
When tree branches grow, they don’t grow in the safest way. If you have power lines stretched across your property, it is not uncommon for a tree’s branches to grow dangerously close. If you ignore the problem and there are strong winds, the branches can take down the power lines, causing you to lose electricity and creating a very dangerous situation outside of your home.
To prevent this serious issue from happening, you should call an emergency tree service to get rid of the dangerous branches before they can do any damage.
#3 A Diseased Tree
Because trees are living things, they are susceptible to disease. If your tree has a disease, there is a chance that the tree can be saved with the right care. However, if the disease has spread too far and taken over the entire tree, it likely cannot be saved. If this is the case, you would need to hire an emergency tree service to take the tree down before it falls on its own and destroy everything in its path. Removing a tree might not be what you want to do, but if the disease has progressed too far, you might not have a choice.
#4 A Downed Tree
The weather in Dallas, TX, can be crazy at times, particularly during the hurricane season. If the winds pick up and a tree falls on your property, it can make for a very inconvenient situation. If the tree is blocking your driveway, you won’t be able to leave your house until you call an emergency tree service to get the tree out of the driveway so you can get your car out.
If the tree landed on your house, you are going to need to call an emergency tree service to get the tree off the house so that the insurance adjuster can come to the home and determine the cost of the damage. If there is a downed tree on your property, a tree service will be able to get the tree cut up and removed from the property quickly.
#5 Weather Threats
If there is severe weather or strong winds in the forecast, the first thing that you should do is check the condition of your trees. If there is a branch hanging too close to your house and worry that it will fall when the weather gets bad, you should call an emergency tree service. They will be able to remove the branches that are putting your home and family at risk, so you don’t need to worry about it when the storm hit. It is better to have the branch removed by a tree service than allowing Mother Nature to take it down, allowing the branch to land wherever it falls.
#6 The Tree Is Causing Plumbing Issues
It is not uncommon for tree roots to wreak havoc with your plumbing or sewage system. As the roots continue to grow, they can pull up on the pipes underground, which can cause major plumbing damage and a flooded yard.
If you suspect that a tree on your property is causing issues with your plumbing, you should call an emergency tree service. A tree expert will have the knowledge and experience to safely take the tree down without further damage to your plumbing system. Because tree roots can be so harmful to the pipes underground, it is essential that you call a tree service right away.
