Do any of your trees have chunks of missing bark on the trunk? How about leaves that have turned brown out of season? Or evergreen needles that are brown or red?
Along with other tell-tale signs like fungi or rot around the trunk, these are among the most common symptoms of diseased and dying trees. If any of the trees around your home or office are showing these signs, it may be time to consider tree removal.
Removing trees to protect your community
Diseased and dead trees are not only unattractive; they are a major hazard, both for your home and its inhabitants. A diseased or dead tree trunk—especially if it’s excessively dry or has been hollowed out by rot or insects—can no longer support the weight of its branches and is likely to fall over, especially if exposed to any severe weather conditions. Falling trees can not only cause major structural damage to your home or your neighbor’s home, but they can severely injure inhabitants, destroy vehicles, or totally block walkways and roads. And even if the tree as a whole is relatively healthy, it’s important to remove dead or dying tree branches before the worst of the Indiana winter hits.
