Tree Care and Knowing When to Remove a Tree
We understand that trees are essential to our environment, and they can add significant beauty to our land and homes and provide homes for local wildlife. However, as trees age, they can become damaged due to storms, disease, or suboptimal soil conditions.
Our tree removal service professionals can assess if your tree needs to be removed or if there are other options to make the tree safe such as tree trimming and canopy reduction.
It is essential to remove trees to keep people and animals safe, to avoid power lines, to avoid property damage, to avoid fire hazards, and to avoid nuisance claims if tree roots from your property damage a neighbouring property. Nuisance claims can sometimes cost tens of thousands of dollars and lead to significant financial and personal stress.
More About Tree Removal
Living with nature and around trees can help improve health, reduce stress, provide shade and provide a habitat for birds and wildlife. There are many great reasons to have trees around us.
Most trees are safe and provide value to our lives. However, we know better than most that trees can grow tall, they can encroach on power lines, tree limbs can overhang buildings, and trees can drop leaf litter and create fire hazards.
Tree roots can burrow under buildings, damage paths and concrete slabs and cause damage to neighbouring properties.
Trees can become diseased, have unusual growth, be damaged due to storms and the environment and grow old and feeble.
All property owners are responsible for trees on their property. While we watch our trees grow, we also need to provide tree care and a regime to monitor tree health to allow your trees to continue to grow with as little risk as possible.
During storms, branches can break and come crashing down. If a tree branch lands on the ground, we can cut them up and take care of clean up. However, a broken tree branch will sometimes become lodged in the tree. A lodged tree branch creates particular danger, as the dangling branch may fall at any time, which is a significant risk to people, property and pets.
Branches may appear to be easy to handle. However, a tree branch can weigh hundreds of kilograms. When a branch falls, the fall trajectory is often unpredictable. These types of branches are known as "windowmakers" for a reason. We always advise that these types of situations should be handled by one of our tree removal experts. We have the right equipment, knowledge, and experience to remove dangling branches to avoid the risk of injury, death and property damage.
Dead Tree Limbs
A dead tree limb may not be as apparent as a dangling branch, but they are often far heavier and more dangerous. Dead tree limbs may be spotted by a lack of growth, bark falling from the tree limb, which leaves the limb bare, branches dying away and leaves dying (and not coming back if the leaves drop seasonally). Many of us have heard the frightening sound of a cracking tree limb, strongly indicating an imminent tree limb fall.
With our equipment and expertise, we can make 360-degree observations of tree limbs to assess if they are safe or should be removed. If a tree limb needs to be removed, we can do it quickly, safely and effectively with our equipment, including climbing gear, an elevated work platform, a woodchipper, the right chainsaw for the job and our safety equipment. If the tree limb is near a house, pool or other property, we can remove it piece by piece and gently lower each part of the tree limb to the ground with a rope in order to avoid damaging the surroundings.
Dangerous Tree Limbs
Dangerous tree limbs occur when a tree limb grows too far out from the main trunk or has stability issues due to twists, knots, disease or damage. These tree limbs are at a higher risk of breakage, sometimes without warning.
While twisting limbs can be visually appealing, they can also introduce inherent weaknesses into a tree limb, such as adding extra weight or angles that can weaken the tree limb. If a tree limb has irregular growth, addressed early enough, a dangerous tree limb may be avoided or made safe. However, if a hazardous tree limb cannot be managed or made safe, it should be immediately removed to avoid risk to people, pets and property.
When a dangerous tree limb is removed, it will allow the tree to redirect the energy taken by the perilous tree limb to grow safely.
When is the Right Time to Remove a Tree?
Suppose a tree has damaged roots, anchoring issues, rot in the trunk, has been attacked by white ants, is causing damage to septic tanks, sewer pipes, and power cables or is a risk to property, pets or a neighbouring property. In that case, it is time to consider the risk and your options seriously.
Trees can be trimmed to reduce their branches and canopy. This can assist in minimising limb fall risks and fire risks, remove diseased or rotted limbs and redirect growth away from buildings and infrastructure. However, suppose a tree is in a weakened state, has trunk rot or disease, is dead, has root anchoring issues, has hazardous limbs, is positioned dangerously, or is too sick. In that case, it is time to remove the tree.
Remember, a new tree can be planted and grown to replace the old tree. However, a fallen tree, limb or branch can cause devastating and irreversible damage, injury or even death. It is better to be safe than sorry.
