Everyone likes to ride down a street lined with beautiful trees. But with the slightest breeze when the branches fall to the ground, it is time to consider tree removal. 

When the strong winds blow and your trees start dropping big branches, that’s the time to assess the trees for decay, weak branches, overgrowth, loose bark, and to have them removed. Termites are another problem that plague trees. To keep your trees healthy, they need proper maintenance. Depending upon the type of trees in your yard, you should do a seasonal and semi-annual review of the trees to determine whether they need pruning or trimming. You should know the type of trees in your yard. It is important to know the type of trees and to know the correct time or season when they should be trimmed. If you have large poorly maintained trees, a seasonal review is necessary to know when they should be trimmed or cut down and removed from your property. Overgrown and decaying trees drain your yard of necessary nutrients. A decayed tree affects the surrounding trees and robs them of water and nutrients. It is better to remove an old decayed tree so that it does not take nutrients and water away from surrounding healthier trees. Decayed trees pose a risk of falling and damaging buildings on your property.
