It's Time To Go: 4 Reasons To Remove That Tree In Your Yard

If you're like most homeowners, you have at least one tree in your yard. In most cases, trees add beauty and value to your home. They can even increase the energy efficiency of your home. But, there are times when trees no longer serve a useful purpose. When that happens, it's time to think about removal. If your trees have become infested with pests, or are suffering from a tree disease, most arborists will recommend removal. But, there are other times when removal becomes necessary. Here are four signs you need to have your tree removed. 

Your Tree is Leaning

If your tree is leaning, there may be a cause for concern. It's not uncommon for trees to have a small amount of lean. Most often the lean is related to the growth pattern of the tree. But, there are times when a lean should be taken seriously. For instance, if your tree has recently started to lean, or if your tree is leaning towards your home. These are both indications that you need to take action as quickly as possible. The first thing you should do is try to brace your tree. This can help to stabilize the tree. If your tree continues to lean, and it's in line with your home, you may need to consider removal. 

Your Tree is in the Way

If your tree is in the way of a home improvement project, removal might be your only option. This is especially true if the tree is too big to transplant. Mature trees often interfere with projects such as home remodeling, or swimming pool construction. If you've got plans for your backyard that can't be accomplished because of the placement of your tree, talk to a tree specialist about removal. Removing the tree will give you the space you need to complete your project. 

Your Tree is a Nuisance

If you have a large tree that's become the gathering point for neighborhood kids, it may need removal. Large trees can become a nuisance, especially if the neighbor kids start climbing in them. They can become a liability if a child falls out of the tree while climbing. The last thing you want is to face a lawsuit because a child fell out of your tree. Eliminate the nuisance, and the potential liability. Have the tree removed as soon as possible. 

Your Tree Makes a Mess

Finally, if your tree has become one big mess, removal will take care of the problem. Mature trees can become too much to care for, especially during the fall when they lose all of their leaves. Instead of dealing with the mess, have the tree removed. Once the tree is removed, you can replace it with one that won't require as much maintenance.
