Knowing When a Tree Needs to be Removed

When a tree develops problems, it can be difficult to know if the tree needs to be removed or if it needs some specialized tree service or care. If a tree in your Omaha yard is visibly dead, it’s fairly easy to know it should be removed. But what are some other reasons a tree should be removed?

If the overall health of the tree is in question, you may need to contact a certified arborist in Omaha, like ABS Tree Care, for tree removal. If 50% of the tree is damaged, it probably should be removed. A tree in poor health can continue to survive for many years, but will always have limited growth and a distressed appearance. Trunk damage may also be a reason to have your tree removed. Vertical cracks, seams, dead branch stubs and large, older wounds show internal decay and you should look into tree service by an Omaha certified arborist. Severe damage to the main trunk likely warrants removal of the tree.

Large, dead branches are always an indication of needed tree service; but it can also indicate that tree removal is needed. Dead branches that are all on one side of a tree can be a symptom of root or trunk damage on the affected side. By providing trees with regular care and service by a certified arborist, like ABS Tree Care, it can eliminate dead and dangerous branches.

These are only a few reason why a tree might need to be evaluated by a tree service professional. If a tree needs to be removed it can be dangerous to your property and family. Give our Omaha tree removal professionals a call at ABS Tree Care for a free evaluation of your trees.
