How Do I Know if I Need to Remove a Tree?
We understand that some trees can have precious memories made underneath them, but just because a tree is gone doesn’t mean your memories are too. Leaving an old or rotted tree in your backyard can ultimately replace those happy memories with tragic ones if it damages your home or hurts a loved one. Here are a few questions to ask if you’re not sure it’s time to remove the tree.
If 50% or more of the tree is damaged, it could survive for years with limited or abnormal growth, ruining the aesthetic of your landscaping. It should be removed if the tree is dealing with excessive disease or is overtly damaged.
Is there trunk damage?
Vertical cracks, dead branch stubs, and large older wounds suggest internal decay and warrant expert tree removal in Seattle. If the damaged area is less than 25% of the circumference of the trunk, then it can recover.
Is it hollow?
Without the interior tree tissue, the trunk strength is compromised, making the tree dangerous and weak. If over one-third of the tree is hollow or rotten, it’s time for removal.
Is it leaning?
Leaning trees are more hazardous because they are susceptible to weak roots and sudden breakage. If a tree is leaning more than 15% to either side, it should be removed immediately.
Consult with an ISA-Certified Arborist
The safest choice is to consult with one of our ISA-Certified Arborists. They will come visit you, assess the health of the tree, and make a recommendation for either pruning/trimming for safety or full removal if warranted. They will also give you an estimate to complete that work.
We take pride in ensuring that it is done safely when you need expert tree removal in Seattle. Removal begins with our arborists climbing the tree and removing limbs starting from the bottom. If this tree is near a structure, we’ll rig each limb down one at a time to protect the area. The trunk itself will be cut into 16” sections that we can remove or leave with you. After removal, we provide thorough cleanup by chipping up and removing leftover brush.
Smaller trees, less than ten inches in diameter, are easier to remove as they can typically fall without causing damage to the surrounding area. Our experts will always assess the height of a tree and plan which direction it should fall while planning possible escape routes. If the tree is too large to fall in one piece, we will cut it into sections after removing the limbs.
