We have a serious soft spot for trees here at Sesmas Tree Service. They are magnificent fixtures for any property and are living organisms that provide plenty of benefits for our environment. That is why we have devoted our business to planting and caring for these marvelous friends. The last thing we want to do is remove a tree, but we also know that there are times when there is no alternative. So, how can you tell it is time to cut down a tree? This is exactly the question we will go over in this article. If you have any specific questions or concerns, or if you would like to hire an ISA-certified arborist, then call Sesmas Tree Service to get in touch with a professional today.
Like humans, a tree is a living organism that can become diseased and ill. Disease and decay can weaken a tree and seriously compromise the its growth. Many times, especially if you act quickly, we can have the tree back in great health. If the disease has spread extensively, however, there might be nothing we can do to bring the tree back. There are many signs that show a tree is damaged beyond the point of return. Some signs include:
Trees are good, for the most part. They do not intentionally attack anyone, but that does not mean that they are completely harmless. Trees, and even their branches, can weigh hundreds of pounds. A falling tree or branch of such size can crush structures, vehicles, and passersby. They can also grow into utility lines and roots can stretch out and penetrate pipes and septic tanks. If your tree is suddenly leaning, located near your plumbing system or foundation, growing under a power line, or has 50 percent or more of its branches dead, then it is important that you call an arborist to inspect the tree and probably remove it.
We love trees, but they are not perfect. Trees can take up valuable real estate and even prevent sunlight from reaching other plants or the windows of a home. Further, some property owners prefer to have a spacious yard without the clutter of trees. It is perfectly normal to want to remove a tree in order to improve the aesthetic of your property. Our ISA-Certified arborists are happy to help plan and execute your tree removal.
