Through the years of our existence as a company we’ve seen many types of natural disasters with trees ranging from large trees ripped apart and tossed yards away by a tornado, to uprooted trees, and ones that were split apart by lightning. The truth is that it doesn’t take much for a tree to cause bodily injury to a person or damage to your home, car, or other belongings.
How to prevent emergency tree service
Sometimes the best way to quietly escape the need for emergency service is to address the issues before they might happen. With trees, if you notice that certain sections of the tree are dying, not producing leaves, or being attacked by disease, then it may be in your best interest to have the tree limbs cut down and removed, have the disease contained and controlled, or think about cabling and bracing branches of a tree to support its structure. These are things that we’d be happy to help with under a different set of circumstances, but all good things to watch out for in your trees.
How to spot a dying tree
Yes, it’s safe to assume that you can’t foresee and prevent a tree from getting struck by lightning, or large branches falling due to ferocious winds, but not every tree scenario is as dramatic. Let’s assume that your tree has been signaling for years that it’s deteriorating, how can you spot those cues so that it doesn’t suddenly turn into an emergency when a tree branch falls on your car? Here are a few signs that will give it away, but if you’re ever unsure of how safe your tree’s structure is, you can always give us a call.
Here is a quick litmus test for you to perform. The inside of trees (once you penetrate through the bark) should be soft, moist, and green. If you take a sharp object, remove the bark and notice that the inside is dry, brown and brittle then it’s a sign of distress and possible decay and disease.
Take some further steps:
- Perform the same test on other branches to see if you get the same results, again you’re looking for a fresh pulp that should be soft and moist.
- Look for fungal growth at the base of the tree. If you see mushrooms then it’s a sign that something is dead or decaying which is what mushrooms thrive on.
- Inspect the bark for any peeling, cracks or splits that could have penetrated all the way through and exposed the pulp.
- Does the canopy look healthy? Are the tree branches full or sparse of leaves? If it looks plentiful in some areas and bare in others then it’s an indication that there is a localized problem taking place.
- Compare yours to the surrounding trees, if they all look the same then it may not necessarily be a good thing, but if the trees you are comparing to look healthy, the canopy is evenly full of leaves and you’re quickly able to pass a litmus test on it then the problem could be localized to your particular trees.
Trying to understand why a tree is deteriorating is one thing, but addressing a tree that has already passed the threshold of revival is another. Dangerous trees should be cut down removed immediately to avoid injury, but should you need emergency tree service on branches, limbs or complete trees, we have the capacity, experience and equipment to successfully remove them from your property. Call us now for a service call.
