Tree removal is always a tough decision and the choice can be emotional. We understand that trees on your property are important and often a part of the family. Unfortunately, there are times when trees can become extreme safety hazards, are dead or dying, storm damaged or become too old and risky. If you’re concerned with the safety of one of your trees read on to find out and see if it’s time for you to consider complete tree removal.
DAMAGED TRUNK MEANS DYING TREE
If the tree on your property is old, diseased, and/or dying, the bark will not grow back leading to a damaged and weak trunk. A significantly damaged trunk or a bare trunk are two signs the tree is reaching the end of its lifeline. Without a sturdy trunk, a tree is a potential hazard to property and life.
DO YOU NOTICE ROOT DAMAGE?
Root damage is a major warning sign of a dying tree and you can check that by seeing if the tree has begun to lean. Another red flag to see are sprouting branches from the base of the tree, which indicate the tree is under a great deal of stress.
The specific point where the branches are attached to the tree trunk can go weak and are a sure shot sign of major tree sickness. Weak joints mean weak branches which can be a safety hazard and fall off the anytime damaging property or causing injury to residents or pets on the property.
- PEST ATTACK
A dead tree is a pest manet and can attract rats, mold, termites and other pests on your property. It will not be long before the pests migrate from the tree to your home and infiltrate the entire place causing a great deal of stress and health issues.
If the tree on your property is dying/or dead it can be visually unappealing. Dead, ugly trees do not exactly make your property look appealing and may adversely impact your property’s resale value.
- RISKY TREES

Such a tree would need regular thinning or complete removal for peace of mind and permanent solution. You should never attempt DIY tree removal as it can very dangerous and labour-intensive apart from being expensive and time-consuming.
