Why Tree Removal Can Be a Good Idea
Though trees are a big plus to the environment for a number of reasons, sometimes they can be unhealthy and hazardous when damaged. Here are the main reasons to remove them from your property:
- To protect people. Dead branches can fall and cause serious or fatal injuries. By removing trees with fragile, brittle and damaged limbs, you will help to ensure that yourself and others are safe.
- To protect structures. If a tree grows too close to a house, building or other structure, it can damage it. Leaning trees can also cause property damage should the trunk weaken.
- To protect infrastructure. Aggressive tree roots can worsen damage to leaking pipes or grow into them and cause clogs, damage driveways and cause other property damage. In some cases, tree removal is the best way to deal with the issue.
You may also need to remove trees that don’t comply with local bylaws, such as those that pose a risk to pedestrians or that encroach on public spaces and make circulation difficult.
Indications that it’s time to consider tree removal
In general, trees that pose a hazard should be removed. After a thorough assessment, our professional arborists can help you identify at-risk trees. However, there are a number of things that should prompt you to schedule a tree assessment. This includes signs of the following:
- Disease. Dieback in the crown, deep cracks, discoloured and misshapen leaves, fungi and crumbly wood are all signs of an infection.
- Pests. If you see numerous small holes in the trunk or the tree is unusually popular with woodpeckers, it may be infested with pests.
- Poor growth. A tree that isn’t growing well should be evaluated, especially if its foliage is discoloured or sparse.
- Root problems. While hard to spot, root issues will often cause fungi to grow near the tree’s base. Heaving soil is another indicator that the tree should be examined by a professional. Shallow roots are often a problem too.
- A decayed or hollow trunk. Deep cracks, splits, large wounds and dead branches can all indicate that a tree is decaying. This makes it vulnerable to weather damage and much more likely to fall. Hollow trees are similarly hazardous.
- Structural damage. A tree that suddenly leans to one side has likely suffered some structural damage and could be dangerous.
- Epicormic shoots. These small sprouts appear at the base of the tree and indicate serious stress. The tree should be evaluated.
In addition, trees that are under power lines can sometimes become a problem and may need to be removed. The same is true of trees that encroach too closely on homes and other types of buildings. Large trees should be at least 20 feet away from all structures. Also, you may also want to remove trees that produce a lot of debris or are otherwise hard to maintain.

Stump Removal & Grinding
We believe that safely removing a tree is doing just half the job. Once the tree has been removed successfully, the stump or the underground roots that remain behind can be hazardous. The roots can also become a breeding ground for unwanted pests, carpenter ants and termites. They can also look unsightly and degrade the appearance of your lawn or yard. At ArborCare, we ensure that these unwanted stumps or roots are extracted and removed completely. Call us today to know more.
