Hazardous Tree Professional Identification
Trees are beautiful and practical additions to any yard, residential or otherwise, yet they can pose very serious dangers to our health, safety, and our property. Luckily, tree inspectors are specially trained individuals who can identify these issues and perform the appropriate solutions to these issues, or refer you to specialists who would do the same.
A hazardous tree inspection can consist of checking of immediate dangers. Dead and broken branches, that might soon fall, are sometimes referred to as “Widow Makers”, because they are dangerous and can drop at any time. Trees with weak bases, tilted statures, and cracked or hanging branches can pose serious risks to our safety.
Proximity of trees to power lines and other utilities are also sources of concern. Root systems can sometimes wrap their way around electrical lines, plumbing, or sewage systems, leading to expensive repairs, possible fires, flooding, or spread of disease.
On the topic of disease, trees can acquire infections that invite rot, parasites, and other unwanted effects that could affect our well-being, whether directly or indirectly, in the case of termites, for example.
Having a tree care professional examine the trees on your property can alleviate these concerns you may have. Sometimes there may be issues that aren’t so apparent to the average person, but may cause damage, both physically and financially, if not addressed.
