There are several ways that your trees benefit your home, and your property. Nicely trimmed trees can improve your home’s curb appeal. They also provide much-needed shade during the hot summers in Texas. Finally, your trees can provide some protection during heavy rains.
As great as your trees are, they can pose a threat to your home, your family, and everything on the ground below. It is essential that you are able to recognize the signs that it is time to call a tree removal service. The last thing you want is for the tree to fall on its own, which can cause catastrophic damage.
#1 Your Tree Is Dying Or Dead
If a tree on your property is no longer blooming, there is a good chance that it is dead. The same is true if you notice decay around the trees. A few other signs of a dead tree are mushrooms growing around the tree or if parts of the tree trunk or the entire tree trunk are hollow.
It is not a good idea to allow a dead tree to remain on your property. If you do, it won’t take more than a strong gust of wind to knock the tree down, causing major damage to your home or serious injuries to the people below. If you suspect that your tree is dying, you should call a tree removal service immediately. A tree expert will be able to look at your tree and determine if it needs to come down.
#2 Your Tree Is Damaged
Trees are very sturdy and can withstand a lot. However, no tree is indestructible. If is hit with a severe storm, your trees can be damaged. If the damage is severe enough, you will need to call a tree removal company. If you allow a damaged tree to stand, it is only a matter of time before the tree comes down, causing major damage.
A tree expert can inspect the tree and the damage to determine if the tree can be saved or not.
#3 The Tree Is Leaning
Trees lean naturally; however, if you notice that your tree is leaning that you never noticed before or if it started leaning after a recent storm, you should call a tree removal service. If you ignore the problem, the tree will start leaning more and more and can eventually come down.
