Our team at Hudson Tree Services is passionate about trees, and we understand why you might be reluctant to remove any of the trees on your property. Trees provide obvious benefits, such as shade and natural beauty, and in our experience, people can become emotionally attached to them as well.
However, there are still some cases where tree removal is necessary, and in this article, we’ll go over a few of the most common situations.
- When the tree is sick, dying, or dead – Tree removal is necessary is when the tree itself is sick or dying. A sick or weak tree becomes a threat to the structures around it, as it will become much less able to withstand winds and storms, making it far more likely to fall. In addition, we’ve seen many cases where a tree is dead or hollow inside, even though it still has green leaves, and we have removed those trees as well to protect the surrounding buildings.
- When the tree is too close to your building – Tree removal is also necessary when a tree grows too close to a structure. Having trees too close creates several problems. For example, branches can fall on your roof and damage it, and the roots can damage your foundation or underground utilities.
- When the tree creates conflict with your neighbors – When a tree grows too close to your neighbor’s property, it can cause disputes. For example, a tree may drop leaves or fruit into your neighbor’s yard, which means they’ll have to clean up a mess that is technically your responsibility. If you are tired of feuding with your neighbors about how to manage a tree growing on the border between your yards, it’s often simpler just to remove it altogether.
