How to Identify a Tree that Needs to be Removed
- Inspect the trunk and any low-hanging branches for signs of decay – pay attention to fungi growth. For example, look out for mushrooms in the base of the tree or the hollow cavities. This and other signs of decay show that the foundational structure might be weakened and therefore likely to fall and damage property, or worse, injure someone.
- Determine if there are any lightning marks – A lightning strike that can damage a tree looks like a long streak of bark is missing. If there are multiple marks like this, then it might be damaged beyond repair and its removal is called for.
- Check the branches – Get up close and look at the branches in order to see which ones might need to be taken down. If it is flowering season–most likely in the spring–and you notice the branches are not producing leaves or flowers, it might be a sign of poor tree health. Also, take a look at whether there is tree bark on the branches. If there is none, it can expose it to disease and might be a good idea to cut it off before it becomes a problem.
- Pay attention to two-trunk trees – Sometimes, the trunk of a tree splits and begins growing in separate directions. You may want to examine the area that they meet. If it is a u-shaped, rounded connection between the trees, then it might not be cause for attention. However, if it is v-shaped, it might become too top-heavy or unbalanced and split. Bracing and cabling can maybe help a two-trunk tree, but please do not do this by yourself as it can be dangerous. Have a professional help you!
