Trees. They’re beautiful and add stunning landscape and dimension to any property. However, at times, we have tree’s in our yards that need to be removed. 

When a tree becomes a danger to those living in its surroundings, the best thing to do is to contact a professional arborist to assess the situation and help you take action.

Below are several signs it’s time to remove your tree: 

One quick and simple way to check if your tree is in danger, scratch a small piece of bark, and if the under layer looks dry and brown, you can bet your tree isn’t happy. Now would be the best time to seek a professional arborist about tree removal. 

Here are a few other things to keep an eye out on your trees: 

Fungi, such as mushrooms or odd colours growing on the trunk of the tree

  • Cracks in the trunk or peeling bark
  • Dry, dead or hanging branches (watch out that there aren’t any large ones that could fall on anyone or anything below!)

If you find your tree has one or more of these signs, then we recommend you get a professional in as soon as possible to take a look. You must get it sorted before it gets worse and occasionally if you sort it sooner rather than later, we may just be able to save the tree. 

We can’t stress enough how important it is that you get a professional in to do tree removal. Not only are arborists trained in how to remove the tree safely, but they can also stump grind and remove any mess left from the extraction.

Signs of a dead tree can be subtle, but when you do spot a sign or symptom, you must take it seriously and act on it. 

A dead tree can be a significant risk to you and your home and especially to any children or animals you have living in your home that are often out enjoying the garden. Branches may unexpectedly snap and fall, a slightly stronger gust of wind could snap a branch, or worse tip the whole tree if it’s rotting. It’s scary because dying or dead trees can be unpredictable and you have no way of telling when it will break or tip over. 

Not only is it essential to remove trees if they are dead or dying but if it has disease or pests, then it’s critical that you get it sorted as to save other surrounding trees. 

Tree removal can be disappointing, but don’t be disheartened, as now you have space to put in that shed you always needed or simply plant another beautiful tree in its place.
