The trees in your home are a beautiful addition to your home, and they are also functional. Not only do your trees improve your home’s curb appeal, but they also provided some much-needed shade on a hot summer day. The trees in your yard also partially protect your home and property from heavy rain. Unfortunately, the trees in your yard can also be a threat to your house, your vehicle, other objects in your yard, and even the people walking underneath the trees. If your trees are posing a threat, you will need to call an emergency tree service. It is important to understand that some issues would require you to make an appointment with a tree removal service to have the tree taken down, and there are other issues that are considered emergencies, which would require an emergency service. If you aren’t sure what is an emergency and what isn’t, read on.
Fort Worth, TX, is known for severe weather from time to time. It is not uncommon for your trees to become damaged during a major storm. If a tree on your property has major limb damage posing a threat to everything on the ground below, you should call an emergency tree service immediately. If the limb damage is severe, the tree cannot be saved, and it will need to be removed before a falling limb can cause serious damage.
The Tree Is Growing Toward the Power Lines
As your tree grows, it can start growing toward the power lines above. This is a serious issue. If you allow the tree to remain on your property, a small gust of wind can cause the tree to take down the power lines. Not only will this cut the power to your house, but downed power lines can be extremely dangerous to you and your family. If you notice that a tree in your yard is growing dangerously close to the power lines, you should call an emergency tree service immediately. You don’t want to take any chances when electricity is involved.
The Roots Are Affecting Your Plumbing or Sewage System
As your trees grow, they don’t just grow taller. The roots under the ground also grow. If you have a tree located near the plumbing or sewage pipes under the ground, the roots can grow into the pipes, causing a major water or sewage flood. If the roots start growing underneath the pipes, they can lift the pipes, causing serious damage. If you have plumbing issues and your plumber determines that your tree’s roots are the cause, you will need to call an emergency tree service immediately.
Cracks Or Structural Damage
A tree’s trunk is its main support system. If the trunk has been cracked or damaged, the tree is seriously compromised, and there is a chance that it can fall. If you notice any cracks in your tree’s trunk, you should call an emergency tree service immediately. If the crack is severe enough, something as minor as a small gust of wind can cause the tree to fall on your house or anything or anyone below.
Rot is also a serious issue that would require an emergency tree service. If the tree is starting to rot, you will see mushrooms at the base, or the leaves will become discolored. As the rot progresses, the center of the trunk will turn to power, resulting in a hollow trunk. When this happens, your tree can come down at any second. If you notice any serious signs of rot, you should call a tree service. You don’t want to risk the tree falling, causing serious damage or injury.
A Fallen Tree
A tree doesn’t need to be standing for you to need an emergency tree service. If a tree falls during a storm or if you didn’t realize that the tree had structural damage and it fell, you will need to call a professional to remove the tree from your yard. This is especially true if the tree has fallen on your house or your vehicle. An tree service will come to your home and remove the whole tree from the property. If the tree did fall on something, you wouldn’t be able to make the necessary repairs until the tree has been removed. This is considered an emergency situation and needs to be addressed immediately.
A Leaning Tree
If you walk out your door one day and notice that a tree on your property is leaning, you should call an emergency tree service immediately. Trees can start to lean during severe weather, high winds due to poor soil or death or disease. Whatever the issue was that caused your tree to lean, it needs to be addressed immediately. If you allow the problem to persist, it won’t be long before the tree leans so much that it falls on your house or anything or anyone else below.
