There are many different reasons for the recommendation of removing a tree. These can consist of things like. Trees no longer suitable for that area due to over growing, further development to that particular area, or the tree poses major signs of stress due to lack of water, drainage, compaction to soil or even has become diseased or defective. Our Arborist will complete a close examination to the tree and its surroundings before they suggest removal as there can be ways to re boost the trees health if that’s what the client desires. Reducing compaction to the root system, fresh mulching and regular watering can be all a tree needs at times to re boost its health
When a tree develops problems, it is frequently difficult to decide when to remove the tree. Dying trees that are not in danger of falling on people or structures can be allowed to die in place without human intervention. Old dead trees also serve as places for various species of wood peckers to find food and a place to nest. If money is no object and the owner wants to keep the tree as long as possible, trees can frequently be maintained for many years by cutting out all dead or diseased portions and watering deeply when needed. Unfortunately continually removing dead wood is expensive and sometimes neighbors are concerned about the possibility that the tree may fall on their property. Trees provide shade and climate moderation, hold soil in place, help keep air and water clean, increase property value, provide beauty. To decide whether to remove a tree, a number of questions need to be asked, the pros and cons weighed.
