How to Know When a Tree Needs to Be Removed

Tree Removing

Trees provide numerous shading, privacy, and aesthetic benefits for any property, which is why many people choose to either buy properties with existing trees or decide to plant trees themselves. At the same time, having a tree on your property is not without its risks. Sometimes a tree will have to be removed by a Surrey tree removal service such as The Arborist.

Trees need to be removed once they have died. Dead trees are not only more likely to topple over, but also to have their branches fall off and cause damage. Furthermore, dead trees are more likely to attract pests, and can simply turn into an unattractive property feature. There are many ways to identify whether you need tree removal in Surrey. The most obvious is if the entire tree is extensively leaning and looking like it may be at risk of falling over. To ascertain whether this might be the case, try to get to an area where you can see the whole entire tree, or at least as much of it as possible. If the tree's lean seems precarious, then it's time to call in the experts. Another way to tell that a tree has died or is in poor health is to take a closer look at its trunk. Large cracks or cavities are a likely indicator that the overall structure of the tree has been compromised. Large chunks of missing bark can also signify major tree health problems. Next, you'll want to take your focus down to the trees roots. Damaged or decaying roots are a major problem for the tree's structural support, and are indicative of a tree that may be close to falling down. You should also take a look just above the roots, where the tree meets with the ground. If there is any space between the trunk and the ground underneath it, the tree has likely developed a new lean. If you're still uncertain about the health of a tree, you can turn your eyes up to its canopy. Dead branches and patches of missing leaves are never a good sign, but may be difficult to spot from the ground and by the untrained eye. A professional Surrey tree removal service can carry out a quality canopy inspection for you.
