Many of us would agree that trees are Mother Nature's gift to us. They don't only provide natural shade and clean the air that we breathe; they also add to the beauty of your yard. To some, trees are family because of the memories they've shared over the years.
That is why deciding to get rid of a tree is not an easy job for a homeowner. It can have physical, mental, and even emotional effect on the homeowner the moment the tree is gone. Imagine looking out on your window and not seeing the lush that used to provide you with cool breeze gone forever. Some people even get emotional just by the thought of not having their precious tree in their yard. Often, it's not the physical benefit that trees give us that we miss but the comfort and peace they make us feel.
Sadly, no matter how much we hold them dear, there are situations when we simply cannot compromise the safety of our loved ones and property. When there is no other option but to remove a tree, leave it to the professional hands of certified arborists.
Before you get a chainsaw and remove your tree, there are physical signs that you can check to help you decide whether the tree needs to be eliminated or if it can still be saved.
When It's Time to Remove a Tree
Don't miss the roots. Before working your way up, begin by checking the roots and base of the tree. Expert arborists suggest looking out for six vital signs of tree damage to tell if the tree requires immediate removal.
Keep in Mind
Just like any other living organisms, trees gradually decline. As they mature, the benefits they provide us also grow and increase. It is essential to keep your landscape safe from the beginning to prevent situations where tree removal will be needed. A certified arborist can help you determine whether your tree is under stress and needs immediate attention. If a tree can still be saved, it should be done at all cost, but if it no longer serves it purpose and poses a threat to your safety, it's probably time to bid goodbye to it.
