Trees can be a valuable addition to your home, but they can also be a danger. It is important to recognize when a tree has become a problem for your home and needs to be removed. This can be because of pine trees that are too close or because a tree has been damaged by a storm or other causes. To ensure your home is safe, here are some of the most dangerous tree situations that you may want to consider tree removal for:

1. Pine Trees That Are Too Close To Personal Property

One of the most dangerous types of trees to have near your home are pine trees. This is because they have very shallow root systems. This is what makes them susceptible to being blown over in a storm. If there is a stand of pine trees around your home, it is a good idea to make sure that they are a safe distance from your home. Any of the trees that are too close to your home, you will want to have removed.

2. Wind And Storm Damaged Trees That Threaten Your Home

Wind and storm damaged trees can be something that threatens your home. When trees become weakened by damage, they can threaten your home, and you will want to have them trimmed by a tree service. If the damage is not too severe, some of the branches may be cut and the tree saved. If damage is extensive, the best option may be to have the tree removed to keep your home safe. This is usually when main branches in the canopy have been damaged and the tree needs to be topped. You may be able to have the tree topped, and then completely removed at a later date.  

3. Trees That Have Been Affected By Insects Or Disease

There are also trees that can be affected by insects, disease and invasive plants. This may not always be obvious, which is why you may want to have a tree service evaluate the health of your trees. If there are signs of insect infestations, removing the tree may help prevent the problem from spreading to other trees on your property. There are also plants like vines that can take over trees and kill them, which you will want to have removed and keep growth of vines like English ivy under control.

These are some of the most dangerous tree situations that you may want to consider removal from. If you have trees that have become a danger to your home or family, contact a tree service, such as Souliere & Son Tree SpeclSts, and schedule a removal to ensure your family stays safe.
