Trees are an aesthetically pleasing part of most homes and properties. Trees are good for the environment, provide an abundance of shade and a home for many birds and insects.
To maintain the health of a tree, it is important to be on the lookout for any damage or changes to trees. This can include changes to the overall appearance, individual branches or the trunk.
Read below to learn 3 warning signs that a tree may need pruning or removing including:
- A tree is leaning on an angle to one side
- A tree has branches hanging over structures outside your home
- The trunk or branches of a tree are split or cracked
A tree is leaning on an angle to one side
While a little lean can be normal, if you notice a tree has suddenly started to lean or the learn is increasing, it can indicate the tree is no longer stable. Another sign of an unstable tree is a build-up of soil on the side opposite the lean or roots are visible around the base of the tree. If you suspect an unstable tree, a tree professional will be able to inspect the tree and advise what is best to make the tree stable again.
A tree has branches hanging over structures outside your home
Strong and gale force winds pose a risk of tree branches falling or whole trees uprooting. If branches or trees are hanging over structures such as roofs, fencing, gutters, sheds, patios or windows, considerable damage can occur if a branch were to break and fall. Pruning or removing trees involves work at heights, therefore it is best to leave the task to a tree professional.
The trunk or branches of a tree are split or cracked
Cracks and splits in a tree’s trunk or splitting or peeling of branches are indicators of an unhealthy tree. A professional has the expertise to identify these warning signs and know when a tree needs attention. Having your trees inspected regularly is the best way to ensure their good health.
