Keeping Your Trees Healthy

When I first bought a new house, I realized that the front trees were a little overgrown. I was worried about a branch breaking in the wind and smashing into a window or the roof, and so I decided to invest in professional tree service. When the arborist came, he had more concerns than just a few overgrown branches. Apparently, a few of my trees had also developed serious pest infestations, and I was worried about what it might mean for their health. He carefully trimmed each tree to ward off disease, and within a few weeks, they were looking a lot better. This blog explains how a professional tree trimmer could help you, so that you aren't left with dying trees.

Why Removing A Dead Tree From Your Yard Is A Good Thing To Do Quickly

Joshua Mercier

Some people think the dead trees they see in wooded areas can be kind of cool to look at. They are weathered and often have a creepy vibe to them that many people appreciate. However, dead trees are not something that you want to have in your own yard. The information you will read below will explain to you why you should have a dying or dead tree removed as soon as possible. Here are some reasons why dead trees in your yard should be removed: 

Dead trees can fall at any time

When it comes to dead trees, there isn't a way to always correctly predict when they will fall. However, something you do need to know is that they will always be at risk of falling. This means whether it be days, months, or even years, at some point that dead tree in your yard will come falling toward the ground, and this presents so many types of danger for you, your family, anyone else on the property when it comes crashing down, and any structure or objects nearby. A gust of wind, or even just gravity, could be all it takes for dead branches to fall at any time.

A dead tree may be contagious to other trees

If it was a disease that killed a tree in your yard, then the tree can be contagious. This means leaving the tree in your yard will continue to put the other trees in your yard at risk of suffering the same fate as that tree. The sooner you have the dead tree removed, the fewer chances there will be of your other trees succumbing to the same issue that caused that tree to die. 

A dead tree can increase the risk of a fire

A dead tree can also increase the chances of a fire in your yard, which can spread quickly to your home and other structures on the property. The dry wood can easily catch fire if hot ash were to come on the property from a nearby fire, and this may be all it takes for the tree to catch fire. By removing the tree, you will also be getting rid of that added chance of fire. 

A dead tree can take from the curb appeal

Another thing to consider is that while a dead tree may look neat out in the wilderness, it will take from the look of your yard. When you put time and money into your yard looking nice, you don't want to have a dead tree become an eyesore and take from everything you have done. Once you remove the tree, it can significantly improve the look of the yard.
