Cutting Comes in Handy
are of so much value to your home. Not only do they make your space beautiful
with a natural touch, they also keep your air fresh and clean. These benefits
require that the trees are kept in good condition. One of the ways to do this
is to guard against tree damage, but this is sometimes unavoidable.
Tree damage comes in various forms and it is caused
by different factors. The following post gives a comprehensive list of the
causes of tree damage so you can ensure your trees are in good condition by
guarding against them:
Natural Causes of
Old mature trees are
more likely to fail than young vigorous trees. Size can also be a factor; large
trees or branches are more dangerous when they fail. Mature trees in decline
are more likely to become damaged due to their size and condition.
trees may be visually interesting, shape may also indicate whether a tree is
weak or structurally unbalanced. Storms, improper pruning, topping, and other
damage can all weaken a tree’s architecture and cause unusual growth patterns.
Trees with multiple
trunks or several branches attached to the same point on the trunk are at
higher risk for splits or cracks. Tight V-shaped forks are more prone to break
than open U-shaped unions. Inspect branches where they attach to the trunk.
Sign That You Need Tree Removal
If one of the trees on your property
looks anything other than healthy or sound, you may need emergency tree removal
in Stafford. Tree removal services can evaluate the state of your tree, remove
damaged branches, or remove the tree altogether. To help keep you, your family,
and your home safe, watch for signs that indicate you need tree removal.
Trees That May Fall
If you find that the trunk of one of
your trees is hollow, the tree is a potential danger. Hollow trees can stay
alive for years, but their strength is severely compromised, and they are
vulnerable to falling.
The signs described in the post above will help
you avoid a potentially dangerous situation. On the other hand, in the event
that something drastic happens before you can do something about it, you need
to know what to anticipate and how to handle a fallen tree legally.
Who is Responsible for a Fallen Tree?
Trees beautify a property’s
landscape, provide shade, and they are good for the environment. However, they
also present risks to the property owner and the neighbors. They can
deteriorate or even die, and that can lead to problems. Dead trees burn more
easily than do live ones. They can also fall over, especially during severe
weather. This is enough of a problem when the tree lands on the owner’s
property. When it lands on a neighbor’s property, things get complicated.
Worse, it can land on the neighbor’s property and damage something. Then
relations between the neighbors can get very tense.
As indicated in the
post above, you need to do your due diligence if you are going to avoid any
chaos and strained relationships caused by a fallen tree. This calls for a
pro-active approach to tree care.
