tree-manIt’s not always the thing you want to do, but sometimes it is necessary to remove trees. The specialists at Arbor Oaks know when you need to, and we’re especially knowledgeable when it comes to hazardous tree removal. You should know the signs. If you’re considering, big tree removal, fallen tree removal or removing a dead tree, here are some situations when you should call the specialists at Arbor Oaks.

Signs You Need Tree Removal

  • Is 50 percent or more of the tree damaged? Then it should be eliminated. Dead or dying trees can be very hazardous because insects’ disease can spread to surrounding trees, weakened limbs and roots can cause the tree to become brittle and break, falling debris, as well as the tree itself, pose danger to structures and people. A tree removal service can prevent this.
  • Is your tree under power lines? Trees should grow no larger than 25 feet underneath power lines. This is a hazardous situation for the entire area.
  • Do any of your trees have shallow root stems or epicormic shoots (small branches that grow from the trunk)? These shoots are a sign that a tree was traumatized in some way. This can happen from overexposure to heat or severe damage during construction. Both of these situations will result in the tree falling on its own eventually. This is a common reason for tree removal Austin and Georgetown property owners come across.
  • Do you find the tree undesirable? Some trees you want to keep, because of the species, while others grow like weeds or drop a lot of debris and are a pain to maintain.
  • Do you notice trunk damage? Dead branches (especially only on one side) or leaning trees, are a sign that your tree is sick and will eventually need to be removed.
