Sometimes, a tree is too damaged to save or is already dead. It may be in a dangerous position that can threaten your home, business, or yard. If that’s the case, Arborscape Tree Care in Vancouver, WA does tree removal on your property in a safe and controlled manner.
Sometimes, a tree can’t be saved
As arborists, we try to diagnose and heal trees when we can, but sometimes, that’s not possible. If you have a tall-standing tree that’s swaying in the wind near your home, or a dead tree that’s too large to move in the middle of the yard, we’ll remove it for you, stump and all.
When should I consider removing a tree?
Generally, trees provide benefits to you and your property. In some instances, however, they can be hurtful or potentially harmful to you, your family, and your property. If you’re unsure if you should have a tree removed, there are a few things to look for.
Does it seem to be leaning unnaturally?
Are there many dead branches on the side of the tree?
Is the tree hollow?
Often, trees don’t stand perfectly straight. They can be leaned slightly and still be firmly rooted to the ground. However, if the tree’s lean seems to be unnatural or excessive, you should consider having it inspected or removed.
While some dead branches are normal, if there seems to be a disproportionate amount of dead branches on one side of the tree, it may be a sign that the tree isn’t healthy. This could indicate trunk or root damage that may be irreparable.
Trees can often live for several years even if they’re hollow. However, this also means they have less trunk strength and could be prone to falling over. If you have a hollow tree near important structures, you may want to have it looked at.
