Why is it Important to Remove Dead Trees?
One of Tree Images’ primary tasks is to improve the health of local landscapes by removing dead trees. Keeping current trees healthy is also important, but sometimes it is too late to save an ailing tree. Dead tree removal is sometimes the smartest move.
There are many reasons why it is recommended to tend to your yard by removing dead trees sooner rather than later. For one, it often costs less to remove a tree if it has recently died, rather than waiting until it decomposes.
Here are some of the main reasons to get dead trees off of your property:
Dead trees can fall
As a tree decays and decomposes, the roots can pull up. A falling tree could damage your house, kill other trees, or injure your family. No matter which way the tree goes down, it could cause damage or injury. As a concern for safety, it is best to act quickly. Removing a dead tree before it falls is “offense as the best defense.”
Branches can fall
The same goes for the branches themselves. Not only is this dangerous as a tree decomposes, but they are a liability if they land on your neighbor’s property. Identifying the branches that are most vulnerable, and removing them cleanly, is the wise step. It is much better to be active in the upkeep of those branches, rather than simply waiting for them to cause destruction.
Sick trees spread disease
If your tree died from a tree disease, it can pass that disease along to other plants. These diseases are often powdery mildews, which can affect your entire yard. Those airborne infections can be extremely difficult to contact once they start to spread, so nipping them in the bud (pun intended) when they are still in a single tree could save your whole landscaping. Getting rid of a dead tree can be putting that tree out of its misery.
Dead trees look bad
Whether or not you may be trying to sell your house, you want to property to look its best. Having a rotting tree in your yard can hurt your curb appeal significantly. Do your neighbors a favor and beautify your lawn by removing that dead vegetation. Evicting a dead tree could be precisely the aesthetic lift your lawn needed.
Dead trees lure pests
Much less vultures are drawn to dead animal carcasses, other scavenging animals are drawn to dead trees. Rats and termites can move from a decomposing tree into the foundation of your house. Don’t give them the chance! Get rid of any comfortable potential home for those rats and termites, and prevent your foundation from getting infested. Removing a dead tree could be the equivalent of having a hundred roach motels. Or termite inns, or cicada condominiums, whatever the case may be.
Insurance may cover the costs
Your homeowner’s insurance policy may cover the entire cost of dead tree removal. Some policies cover this, so as to lower the risk by preventing a dead tree from falling. Is it worth checking your policy to see if you might not need to pay out of pocket.
No matter what your reason may be, handling dead or dying plant growth is an easy way to remove potential damage, and a simple step that can make your home look cleaner and more beautiful. Don’t hesitate to enhance your yard and prune your foliage. The dead tree you remove today could lead to the sprouting of a hundred healthy new branches on other trees.
