The tree removal process can be dangerous depending on the size and condition of the tree in question and if there are any buildings, vehicles, or populated areas nearby. Prior to completing a DIY tree removal project, consult with MapleGreen first!
There are numerous reasons as to why a tree should be removed. These include:
- If a tree is diseased and not treated for infection, the tree’s structural stability will become compromised, thus failing.
- Fungal growth at the base of the existing tree could indicate that the tree is rotting internally, which in turn, could attract insects.
- Trees are able to seal over trunk cracks, however; if the crack is constantly damp, this could lead to rot and decay within the tree, consequently making it structurally unstable. Also, a tree’s trunk strength with the majority of the trunk hollow makes the tree unsafe.
- Heavy Leans:
- Trees with heavy leans indicate that the root system is weak. This tree poses as a hazard and should be removed since the tree could topple over unexpectedly.
- Power Lines:
- An arborist should assess trees in close proximity to power lines. Depending on the situation, it could be the city’s responsibility to prune or remove these trees.
