No one ever knows when they will need Emergency Tree Removal services , that’s why its called an emergency !
The trees in your landscape are an asset to your home. However, if neglected or improperly cared for, your trees can become a liability. Extreme wind, rain, snow, and ice can cause perfectly healthy trees to fail which means a limb falls out of the canopy of the tree, the trunk splits and falls to the ground, or the entire tree becomes uprooted.
Typical weather events are not an issue for trees. Trees are engineered to withstand “normal conditions”. However, some storms can exert extreme forces, resulting in injuries of varying degrees. It is at this point that a tree owner or manager must make an informed decision based on the extent of the damage. Trees that already have some defect, decay, or damage are usually the ones that fail under extreme weather events. Weather failure is often created by unintentional human mistreatment. Damaged trees can easily become hazardous. When a tree becomes hazardous, it often fails.
If you have a tree that you think may be hazardous seek professional help from an ISA Certified Arborist. The assistance of a trained arborist can help determine if a tree can be saved from sustained injuries, or if it requires Emergency Tree Removal.
Excessive amounts of rain can cause a trees to fail as well . As soils get saturated, roots will move (slip) in the soil when the wind pushes on the tree. If the root system is not strong enough, the tree may blow over. Three major issues may be the reason trees fail in this way. Poor planting techniques, infrastructure crowding, and root damage affect root health and will determine the strength of the tree over time. with proper maintenance and care your less likely to have to call for and Emergency Tree Removal.
Ice and snow can build up on braches causing them to become too heavy resulting in the snapping and breaking of trees and branches. Especially in trees that have been “topped” (this is a service arborists would not recommend )(but that is a whole different blog topic).
