Is my tree creating a safety hazard?

Is my tree creating a safety hazard?

Big trees can be beautiful landscape features, but they can also pose major safety hazards. If a tree on your property appears to be unhealthy, you'll want to have an experienced arborist come by and evaluate it to see if it is liable to come crashing down. At BP Tree Services, our local arborists know how to accurately identify trees that have become dangerous. It's always best to find out that a tree is unhealthy while it's still standing. This way, our crew can safely take it down. If you ignore the issue, the tree could suddenly come crashing down and cause major property damage and serious injuries.

Signs that a Tree Is Dangerous

Dead limbs can remain in a tree for years without causing any trouble. But then one day a windstorm will blow through and send the limb crashing down. On evergreen trees, it's usually easy to identify a dead limb, but it can be more challenging with deciduous trees during times when they don't have their leaves. Because their decay can spread to live parts of the tree, it's important to remove dead limbs ASAP. Also, any limbs that are damaged should be safely taken down. Not only are such limbs more likely to come down during a storm, they also tend to leave the tree with messy wounds that create a portal for diseases to enter. Our arborists are highly skilled at limbing trees and making clean cuts that will properly heal.

Another concern is root damage. During landscaping and construction projects, homeowners sometimes accidentally damage the root structures of their big trees. This can cause the trees' health to worsen to the point that they die. As they descend toward death, big trees become more and more likely to fall over. And if you see a tree that's leaning, you'll want to bring it to the arborist's attention.
