As the winter season gives Delaware its all, home and business owners are ensuring that their properties are ready for the snow, wind, and ice ahead. Surprises are often unwelcome when it comes to landscaping and winter weather, and downed trees or fallen branches often give property owners grief after large storms. Fortunately, there are a few ways for home and business owners to anticipate potential problems before the need for tree removal arises. Tree trimming, inspection, and maintenance can help keep unexpected issues at bay, and investing in tree removal for problem plants can help prevent future disaster. Keep an eye out for these issues with trees on your property, and work with a professional team for tree removal.
Is Tree Removal Necessary? Look at the Trunk and Roots.
While some signs of a sick or injured tree are obvious from yards away, some symptoms are only noticeable upon closer inspection. Looking at a tree’s trunk and bark can give some valuable insight into its health: cracks, cavities, or loose bark can point to problems that are more than skin-deep. Fungal infections, physical damage, and pests can put a tree’s health at risk, and many of these issues manifest as problems on the trunk. A tree’s roots are just as important, as they are responsible for absorbing nutrients and water and anchoring it into the ground. Rotten roots, excessive fungal growth, and raised soil can indicate significant problems below the surface, and tree removal may be necessary. When a tree’s roots are compromised, it is at a much greater risk of falling over.
Inspecting the Canopy
Looking upward can give some valuable hints, too. When a tree has issues absorbing nutrients, fending off a pest or fungus, or getting enough light, branches can start to die off. Dead wood and leaves that are going brown out of season may be causes for alarm. Work with a tree removal, pruning, and maintenance expert to ensure that your tree can either return to health or be removed safely.
Looking at the Tree as a Whole
Finally, take a step back and look at the entire tree. A large dead branch that you may have ignored for a month or two may be a sign of something larger, and a leaning profile can be incredibly hazardous.
