5 Signs That Your Tree Needs To Be Removed

An arborist tells why your tree needs to be removed, and what you should do before contacting a professional.

A tree is a big investment for your home. Not only do they provide shade and beauty, but they can also increase your home’s value. But what happens when your tree starts to die? Here are five signs that indicate it’s time to say goodbye to your tree.

The Tree is Leaning

One sign that your tree may need to be removed is if it is leaning. If the tree is leaning significantly to one side, it may be at risk of falling over. This is especially dangerous if the tree is located near a house or other structure. If the tree is leaning, you should have a professional tree service come and take a look at it to determine if it needs to be removed.

Another sign that your tree may need to be removed is if it has dead or dying branches. Dead branches can fall off the tree and cause damage to property or injure people. If the tree has a lot of dead or dying branches, it may be best to have it removed.

Andrew and his team showed up 2 hours after the tree hit the house. They carefully and safely were able to remove the tree with no further damage. The insurance company covered his costs. We could not be happier with the turn around time, professionalism and the quality of equipment and skill used to execute the job! Unfortunate circumstances thrown at us from mother nature but great results! Thank you again Andrew!!

Andrew and his crew are great to work with. They showed up when they said they would, were very courteous and went over all work to be done before proceeding. Two large trees needed pruning and the crew worked meticulously selecting the branches to be cut. They were considerate of the neighbors and cleaned up all debris before leaving. They did great work at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them as arborists.
