While most trees can live a long time, there are many factors that affect a tree. For this reason, trees on your property should be inspected regularly to ensure their good health. Despite regular checks, some trees still sadly die. When this occurs, it’s important to ensure removing them is a priority. A dead tree is unpredictable and if not removed, can be the cause of damage to home, property, vegetation or worse still, people.
Read on to learn 5 important reasons to make removing dead trees a priority including:
- Risk of injury to yourself and others
- Potential damage to your home’s structures
- Potential damage to neighbouring properties
- Spread of disease to surrounding vegetation
- The longer it remains standing, the more dangerous it is
Risk of injury to yourself and others
If a dead tree on your property is in an area that people access, removing it is essential. Once it has died, a trees branches are prone to breaking and falling without warning. Worse still, the whole tree may come down. Don’t put the well-being and safety of you and others at risk of being struck by falling branches.
Potential damage to your home’s structures
A fallen branch from a dead tree can cause serious damage to home structures. A damaged roof, broken window or damaged vehicle can be the result of a fallen branch. A fallen dead tree could also block access to your home causing a huge inconvenience to you and your family.
Potential damage to neighbouring properties
A dead tree can be the culprit of damage to not only your home, but your neighbours too. Fallen branches or whole trees can cause significant damage to neighbouring fences plus neighbour’s outdoor areas including sheds, patios and garages. Eliminate the risk of a dead tree causing damage by having it removed.
Spread of disease to surrounding vegetation
There are several factors that can cause tree diseases including location, soil quality and weather conditions. Many tree diseases are contagious and easily spread to nearby trees and plants. Minimise this risk and protect the rest of your garden by having dead trees removed straight away.
The longer it remains standing, the more dangerous it is
The longer a dead tree remains standing, the more brittle it becomes. The more brittle a dead tree is, the riskier the job of removing it can become. This can lead to more time needed which can lead to more costs involved.
