We just had TRTC company take down a huge oak tree that was damaged in the August storm. They did a fantastic job! They were prompt, professional and so efficient! They worked tirelessly all day- like 13 hours! Then they cleaned up any mess left behind! Great job!

How to Know When to Remove a Tree

Nature is a beauty and trees are a very important part of that beauty. Not only do trees provide many benefits for our health, but it also gives us a sense of energy and privacy. If a tree is sick or damaged, what we know of benefits to us may cause damage to our health. For this reason, tree removal is very important. Throughout this article, we will look at some signs of damaged or sick trees, potential damages, our services, and many more.

What Are Some Signs and Effects?

Here are some signs that you should be extremely careful about: leaf discoloration, there are a bunch of chunks missing from a branch, there are weak, rotting branches, and overhanging branches. If a person notices any of the above and doesn’t care much, it may cause them really big trouble. If the tree falls, it can take down the power lines, damage your property, and potentially injure a person.

  • What Many Ignore

Fungi. Many of us see fungi under trees and that’s usually normal. However, did you know that a fungus that grows on the tree trunk could be a sign of internal rotting? The longer a fungus is left without notice, the weaker a tree gets. Thankfully, with the services that Timber Ridge Tree Care provides, your trees can be saved. Don’t let your trees get weaker and have the potential to fall, call us today to learn more.

  • Physical Damage by the Weather

As we all know, certain weather like a storm or harsh wind may cause physical damage to the tree. This physical damage includes but isn’t limited to fallen branches and weakened roots. With such damage, there may be water-saturated soil which can cause the entire tree to fall. In such cases, there is no option but to remove the tree.

  • Tree Stress

Did you know that trees can also show signs of stress? But how? Signs of stress are typically the effects listed above: trunk rot and fungus growth, invasive roots, overhanging branches. Depending on the case, a tree can survive. However, a professional tree service may need to check. If they decide that the tree is having too much trouble surviving, then before any decay spreads and causes a tree to fall, that tree needs to be removed immediately.
