Have you been thinking about getting a Winter Park tree removal? Parting ways with a tree that has been in your yard for a long time can be a stressful thought (and sometimes emotional). Trees can become such an iconic part of your yard that it becomes difficult to imagine your yard without it.
However, when a dead tree becomes problematic, it is often best to get it removed right away. In the Winter Park area, having a dead tree can become a danger to not only your property but also your neighbor’s property. If you notice any of these signs, it is time to call us for you Winter Park tree removal.
A hollow trunk is one of the warning signs that a tree may not be sturdy enough to stay in your yard safely. Without a robust center, the tree lacks support to keep it standing upright and can potentially tip over.
Inspect your trunk for hollowness by lightly tapping around the trunk of the tree and listen for a dull, hollow sound coming from within.
A leaning tree is the most obvious sign you need to consider a Winter Park tree removal service. If the tree on your property is already bending over, you can be almost positive that you need to remove it as soon as possible before a storm or large gust of wind completely knocks it over. If there is more than a 15% curvature in your tree’s trunk, the tree runs the risk of falling and needs to be removed immediately.
Trunk Rot and Fungus
Large fungi growing on your tree is a sure sign of decay. Different species of tree fungus can build on your trees, the most common being bracket fungi, artist conks and broad leaf crusts.
What these fungi have in common is that they’re a sign of decay inside your tree’s trunk. This rot and decay can quickly spread to other healthy trees on your yard and make it so you have to remove all of the trees in contact.
