TREE REMOVAL IN FORT WORTH & SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES
Not sure if your tree needs to be removed? There are several ways you can tell if your tree needs to be removed and we will go over them with you.
We always recommend getting the advice of a professional tree service, we provide free estimates, to make sure you get a really good understanding of exactly what needs to be done for your tree. There are many situations that arise when removing dead or dying trees that can make the situations dangerous. There are also times when heavy equipment, like a crane, is needed to remove a tree. So if you are unsure about your tree troubles contact us and we will give you a free estimate.
HOW TO TELL A TREE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED
In general just looking at a tree can give you a good idea of whether or not it needs to be removed. Here are the biggest issues to keep an eye out for.
LARGE DEAD BRANCHES
If your tree has numerous large dead branches you might need to have the tree removed. A good rule of thumb is if more than 25% of the branches are dead it probably won’t survive. Branches often die as result from severe storm damage, diseases, and insect infestations. If your tree does have a disease you’ll want to have the issue taken care of because tree diseases are contagious and can spread.
Dead branches pose a risk to property and persons if not taken care of. Most home owners policies will cover damage caused by healthy trees if they fall or limbs break off, but if the tree is dying or needed to be removed before hand it may not be covered. If you’re not covered it would be best to have a tree service remove the tree as soon as possible.
If your tree is leaning at a precarious angle it should probably be removed. A leaning tree can pose a huge risk during a storm. If your tree develops a sudden lean it is an indication of breakage or weakening roots and should be addressed immediately.
TREE NEAR POWER LINES
A tree growing too close to power lines can create a very dangerous situation. If your tree is growing under power lines the limbs will need to at least be thinned out or the entire tree removed. Never attempt to trim limbs or remove a tree from near power lines. The risk of accidentally touching a power line or a ground arc are serious. If you have a tree growing near utility lines contact us and we will give a free estimate on a course of action to correct it.
Just because a tree is hollow doesn’t mean it is dead. But a hollow tree is a weakened tree and can pose a risk to your property and even people. If 1/3 of the trees internal structure has rotted then it’s probably time to remove the tree.
TOO CLOSE TO STRUCTURES
A tree that is planted too close to a home or other structure can cause foundation damage. Tree roots can actually grow to the point that they pierce through a foundation. Trees planted near homes can suck the water from the soil causing your home to settle unevenly.
Not all trees planted near a home can or will cause damage but if you notice cracks in your foundation or doors that aren’t closing properly you might want to have someone take a look at your trees to see if they need to be removed.
There are many reasons a tree may need to be removed and if you are ever in doubt Stars & Stripes Tree Service will come out and take a look for free. It doesn’t cost you anything to have our professionals give you a little peace of mind. Contact us today and we will set up a time to come look at your trees.
