Our team has the experience and training necessary for dangerous tree removal in Round Rock. Most people will avoid actually removing a tree as long as this is a possibility, and we agree with this philosophy. The issue, however, arises in the fact that sometimes a tree is simply unhealthy or begins to die, requiring its removal. There are also some trees that life for shorter amounts of time, meaning that you must have them removed at some point. Any type of tree, no matter the age, may experience damage from human construction or extreme weather, such as drought or excessive rainfall. When a tree is damaged, it is sometimes necessary to remove it even in cases when you’d prefer not to. Our expert team can help regardless of the situation and we will start by determining whether tree removal must occur.
Signs That Removal Is Necessary
Our decades of experience have taught us to notice the signs a tree gives that it should be removed. The following are some of the common indications we search for, each of which indicate the tree must be removed:
- The tree is leaning (or leaning more than previously).
- The tree has hollowed out areas of heartwood.
- The tree’s canopy is over half dead.
- There are mushrooms growing on the tree’s roots, trunk, or conks (the fruiting bodies).
- The tree canopy (following the branches’ tops) or edges is dying or dead. (In some cases, we will be able to care for the tree, use aeration, or fertilize the tree and reverse this process).
When our experts notice these issues, we investigate more thoroughly to determine whether removal is truly necessary.
Additional Reasons To Remove Trees
While the above list represents situations that require tree removal, there are also other reasons that will not necessitate it, but still lead to the process for various factors. These can include:
- The tree getting in the way of home improvement projects (making a home addition, installing a pool, building a deck, etc).
- The tree growing further than the available environment.
- The tree has died or is diseased and/or dying, leading to a danger. In some cases trees that are dead or dying will put you, your family, and your property in danger.
- The tree being located close to the house and the roots are leading to foundation issues, particularly the foundation shifting.
- The trees seeming overcrowded due to poor planning before landscaping your property.
- An oak tree having an oak wilt infection. In this case, it must be removed as this prevents the disease spreading to nearby trees.
- The tree being improperly pruned and becoming an eyesore.
