If you have a dead tree on your property, it may seem like a minor annoyance but nothing more. In actuality, there are plenty of reasons you may need to remove a dead tree—quick! While dead trees are unsightly and make your property look unattractive, there are some other reasons as well. It’s difficult to remove a dead tree so if you plan to, make sure you find a professional to do the work for you like us here at Harford Tree. A professional will make sure the job is done safely and cost efficiently. Check out these four reasons to have a pro remove your dead tree.
1. Dead Trees Encourage Pests
Dead trees are a great home for many kinds of life—that means everything from squirrels to termites. Pests you don’t want around, like termites or even rats, are best left discouraged from living on your property. Even the kinds of animals you may want on your property, like squirrels or birds, can make it difficult to remove a dead tree down the road so it’s best to remove it immediately.
2. Dead Trees Spread Disease
Trees can get sick just like us and sometimes those sicknesses spread between trees. Some molds that kill trees turn into a powdery substance and are then swept up by the wind and end up infecting other nearby trees. If you have one infected tree, it may end up infecting much of your landscape. Remove dead trees before they’re able to infect other plantlife around your property.
3. Dead Trees Are Dangerous
At the end of the day, a decaying tree is just rotting wood, which could end up hurting someone in some circumstances. If you have pets or children who explore your property, they’re even more likely to get hurt by a fallen tree. This is especially the case if your tree died due to damage from a storm. Get rid of that tree and your property is much more safe.
4. Dead Trees Are Easier to Remove Now
The weather is already starting to get colder but we all know winter is coming, which would make tree removal much more difficult. Take advantage of the weather while you still can and have a professional come in and get rid of any dead trees that may be on your property.
