Common dangerous tree situations we can help with include:
- A tree that has overgrown its location
Trees inevitably overgrow their original location. With some species such as Ash, Oak and Beech growing well over 30 meters tall. This can become a safety hazard or maybe simply unwanted.
Trees can die for many reasons, from adverse environments to old age. And when this does happen, it is important to remove the dead or dying tree before it has the chance to damage anything surrounding it. Trees can also die from harmful insects and disease. This makes the careful removal of the tree best left to professional tree surgeons like us to limit the contamination and spread to other forestry and foliage.
Large branches can be dangerous when weak or hanging off from any height as they can cause serious damage to a person or structure when falling. Unknown berries from some species of tree are poisonous to local wildlife and pets. It is best to consult us on the types of trees you may have and the next stages of care to take.
Strong wet and windy weather can help any age and state of tree fall over. This has been known to cause serious damages to roofs, windows and walls of buildings, as well as possibly obstructing roads or entryways. Usually, a tree can be professionally cut up and repurposed either by us or yourself.
- The tree has lost its structural integrity
Trees can slowly grow to support themselves on surrounding structures such as walls, fences and gates. However, this can be a cause for concern and costly to repair if not resolved. The upheaval of the ground around the base of the tree and exposing roots can also become a safety hazard.
Removing a tree can also benefit the foliage surrounding it by reducing crowding, preventing disease and bettering the local ecosystem.
