Obvious Reasons You Should Remove Trees from Your Property

Trees are beautiful and bring many different benefits to your property, family, and the world, but there are some reasons that it would be safer to cut down and remove the trees on your property than to keep them. Let’s discuss those reasons and why to consider them when you assess your property.

  1. The tree is dead.
    1. This may be too obvious, but we thought we would include it on the list anyway. When a tree dies, it becomes weak and an eye sore on your property. Removing that tree will keep it from damaging anything if it falls over or a branch breaks off. Your property value will increase after removing a dead tree as well.
  • The tree is unhealthy. Take notice if the top of the tree or branches are dying off, or the trunk shows signs of decay.
    • Even if the tree is not completely dead, it still poses a threat to damaging structures or personal property if the decaying parts fall off or are blown away in the wind.
  • The tree was damaged in a storm. If enough of the tree was damaged it may be beyond repair.
    • Sometimes mother nature can be fierce, and damage trees to the point that you cannot save them.
  • The tree is growing too close to – or the roots are encroaching on – your house, garage, utility lines, or other structures.
    • Trees can grow in unpredictable ways. If you find that you have a tree that is endangering your home or causing damage to pipes underground you should call Ivan’s Tree Service right away to come up with the best plan to save your home or pipes.
  • The tree is in the way of construction or will be mortally damaged by heavy equipment.
    • Unfortunately, the best way for some construction projects to move forward is for trees to be removed that are in the way or would be damaged while in the construction zone.
