As a homeowner with trees on your property, you will want to make sure that you are well aware of when a tree might need to be removed. This way, you will be more likely to know when to call for tree removal service before you end up dealing with some serious problems. Here are a few of the signs that indicate that there is a need for you to have a tree removed:
The Tree Is Too Close To Your House
If you have a tree that is growing too close to your house, you will want to consider having it removed. This is especially important if the branches of that tree are touching the roof of your home. Even if they are not exactly touching just yet, if they do touch when the wind blows during a heavy storm, that is enough of a problem. Those branches could rip shingles off of the roof of your home. Large branches could fall from the tree and crash right through your roof.
The Tree Is Causing A Problem With The Neighbors
When you have a tree too close to the property line, there will be a section of the branches that will hang over the neighboring property. Some people are not bothered by this. In fact, they might love their neighbor's tree because of the shade it gives in their yard during certain times of the day. However, other people might be annoyed by dropping tree branches and leaves that fall during the autumn. If your neighbor is always complaining about your tree and you always have to clean up after it, you might want to consider simply removing it. You can always plant another tree a little further back into your property so when it grows, it will not interfere with any neighboring properties.
The Tree Is Not Healthy
If you have a tree on your property that is looking rather sickly, you will want to make an appointment to have it professionally removed before it falls down on its own. After all, when a tree is left to die, it will eventually fall, and there is no way to know if it will land on your home, on the neighbor's car, or in an area where it will not hurt anything. This is why it is better to have it removed professionally before any of that can happen.
