There are some occasions that could necessitate the removal of a tree.
The most common reason for tree removal is when a tree becomes damaged, such as during a storm. It may also begin to show cracks in its trunk, posing future potential to break. If this is the case, preemptively removing the tree could save your garden or driveway from damage (and your pockets from additional costs!).
Insect infestations could also be cause for tree removal, as they could pose a threat to those living in the surrounding area and also to flora and fauna around the affected tree.
Some of the signs that your tree should be removed include the following:
- Cavities in the trunk or branches
- Dead or hanging branches, especially around the upper crown
- At the base of the trunk, a presence of fungi that produces decay, such as mushrooms
- Peeling bark and cracks in the trunk
