Trees may need to be removed for a variety of reasons, and the decision to remove a tree should be made carefully and often with the advice of a certified arborist or tree care professional.

Common Reasons for Tree Removal

Dead or Dying Trees – Trees that are dead or in a severe state of decline can become unstable, making them hazardous. They are more likely to drop branches or fall over, posing risks to property and people.

Diseased Trees – If a tree is infected with a severe disease that cannot be effectively treated, removal may be necessary to prevent the disease from spreading to other trees.

Storm-Damaged Trees – Trees that have sustained significant damage from storms, such as lightning strikes, strong winds, or ice, may require removal if they cannot be safely restored.

Weak Unions – Trees with included bark or weak branch attachments are more likely to split or break, necessitating removal or cabling for support.

Overgrown Trees – When a tree has outgrown its space and poses a threat to structures, utility lines, or other landscape elements, it may need to be removed or pruned significantly.

Trees in the path of new construction, development, or infrastructure projects may need to be removed to clear the area for buildings, roads, or utilities.

Landscaping – Property owners may choose to remove trees to improve the aesthetics of their landscape or to make way for new landscaping features.

Tree removal is a significant decision that should be made after careful consideration of the tree’s condition, potential risks, and available alternatives. It is advisable to consult with our team of certified arborists who can assess the tree and provide guidance on whether removal is the best course of action.
