Trees are known for being sturdy, strong, and constant. Some trees can feel as if they are a permanent structure and everything else around them is fleeting. They can be shade, support, and visually enhancing for any property. Removing trees from your landscape can be a harder decision and experience than most people would like to admit.

Trees are living things and unfortunately, that comes along with the territory of also being able to die. Sometimes, people have dead trees in their yard and it can be a long time before they actually recognize it. In the case of dead trees, removal is necessary.
Just like all living things, trees have the ability to get sick or infected by other living things. This can include diseases. If a tree is infected with fungi, pests, or diseases and the damage is irreversible, then it is time to remove it. If not, the tree can die and become a hazard and there is a chance it will spread to other trees in your yard. Speak to a professional arborist about what your best course of action is.
The most common way that trees experience significant damage is from severe weather. Whether it is harsh winter snow, lightning storm, heavy winds, etc. If a tree is struck by lightning, it is usually a fatal level of damage throughout the tree. However, trees can experience damage in other ways. For example, if a car swerves off the road and crashes into the trunk. Even animals can cause damage to the tree. It is important to have it professionally evaluated to know if there is a chance it can heal or be salvaged, or if it needs to be removed.
For some trees, the issue isn’t dying or decaying, it’s the opposite. Trees are living and continuously growing and changing. Unfortunately, this can be hazardous to their surroundings at certain points. Whether a root system is ruining a building structure or foundation, or branches are interfering with powerlines and telephone poles it can be a real issue. Depending on the issue, this can be very expensive to repair if not handled properly. Fortunately, some trees can be transplanted, or moved. Speak to a professional arborist f you have any questions about a particular tree that may be growing beyond its boundaries.
Even if at first glance it doesn’t look dangerous, a dead or decaying tree on your property can be a hazard. These trees pose a large risk to you and your property. Even if they might not appear weak to the naked eye, once they are determined dead or decaying they are weak and have the potential to break. Especially if a storm comes, this tree can be a hazard to you, your family, and your property. Dead trees are unpredictable and should be removed immediately. However, this is not a DIY project. A professional arborist will be able to determine the health of a tree and what the best “next steps” are.
