Although we all do as much as we can to keep our trees happy and healthy, there are reasons why a tree will need to be removed. This infographic shows you the most common reasons a tree needs to be removed.
A dead tree if left standing will slowly lose strength and potentially fall especially during summer storms. As we all know, a falling tree can be disastrous.
Therefore, a dead or dying tree should be removed immediately.
It’s hard to know if a tree has a disease just by looking at it. More often than not, it’s too late to save a diseased tree. If you suspect that one of your trees is diseased, it’s imperative that you have it assessed. A diseased tree is a weakened tree which also poses a collapsing risk. But also, immediate removal will prevent the disease spreading to other trees.
