At their best, trees can be a welcome addition that adds beauty to any backyard. But when they die or are in the process of dying, removing them as soon as possible is of paramount importance. Dead and dying trees can do quite a bit of damage to your home and surrounding property. If you discover trees that are on their last life in your yard, call a professional to avoid some of these common issues.
Dead or dying trees can be a problem for your property and home. Here are some reasons why they need to go:
They Attract Pests
Pests and other small animals are attracted to decomposing trees, often finding a new home in hollowed-out limbs. These accommodations will be temporary and unwanted visitors such as rats and termites may then seek a more permanent stay in your home.
Spreading Disease Between Trees
Much like humans, trees can catch and spread disease. While it may be too late to save an afflicted tree, removing it quickly can help prevent that disease from spreading to nearby trees. Losing one tree is bad enough, don’t allow your entire yard to become infected.
Causing Harm and Damage
Dead and dying trees are more susceptible to falling. This may mean a large branch falling on you, a small child or a pet in the backyard, causing bodily harm. It may also mean the entire tree falling and causing damage to yours or your neighbor’s home.
Hurting Property Value
If you’re looking to sell your home, a dead tree will not help your curb appeal. In fact, your property value could take a hit as potential buyers could be scared off by the risk of it falling and causing damage. Removing a dead tree can help that property value bounce back.
