What is a risk or dangerous tree?
- Uprooted, fallen trees from storms, hail and high winds that may cause injury to property owners or others.
- Trees that are too close to electrical wires and may cause electrical issues in neighborhoods during storms.
- Trees that have roots causing plumbing problems, cracking sidewalks or leaning into another property.
What types of trees are identified as "unwanted trees"?
The Hackberry tree is considered a trash trees by most; although its resistance to drought and poor soil is great, the Hackberry is prominent to getting an aphid-like jumping insect, dropping leaves, getting a dark fungus on bark, powdery mildew and possible mites.
Any rotten trees that may be an attraction for termites or other pests or fungus should be removed to avoid any distribution of problems to your healthy trees, home or commercial building.
An unwanted tree may just be a tree that is in the way for a new structure to be build or rebuild such as a rows of trees along side of the fence line or property lines causing an obstruction.
At times, homeowners or commercial owners prefer to keep all oaks and extract all elms, hackberries and cedars if there is a potential foreseen problem.
What is considered a weak and diseased trees?
A weak and diseased tree is a tree with a fungus or mildew with a hollow and decayed trunk or just too old to recover and is declining in health and will not survive.
Trees with a very prominent disease such as stem canker, yellow spotty leafs, brown leafs, dropping leafs prematurely, defoliation or holes in the trunk. These types of problems if diagnosed by an arborist on time may lengthen the health of the tree.
Do I have damaging trees in my property?
- Depending on the size, age, and location roots may go underneath structures, damaging pipes and other utility lines.
- Trees that are about to fall on a structure.
- Trees that are too close to a building that will continuously cause issues with critters or gutter or structural roof problems.
