The Most Common Reasons To Remove a Tree

Unfortunately, there comes a time when the trees we love so much become a bigger risk than they are worth having. Whether it is for safety or personal preferences, here are a few reasons you may want to remove a tree from your property. 

Removing a Tree for Safety Reasons

One of the biggest reasons trees should be removed from the lawn is if they pose a risk to your safety or the safety of others. As this infographic states, diseased, dead, or damaged trees can threaten the safety of your property and family. When you remove a tree before the worst happens, you can maintain control over the process and prevent bigger issues down the road. 

Removing Trees For Personal Preference

Maybe the tree isn't lt posing a safety control, but you want to remove it anyways. Maybe you once loved the tree, but it hasn’t been cared for properly and got overgrown, or maybe you want to free up some space for your garden beds and let some light in. 

Removing Trees To Preserve the Structure of a Building

Look, sometimes trees grow way too close to homes, and they begin to cause damage. Or maybe they could cause damage if they are allowed to continue growing in that location. Here's the deal, falling trees aren't the only thing that could cause an issue. The root structure of trees can be damaging too. Get this. The trunk-to-root ratio of young trees is as much as 38 to 1! 

At the end of the day, whatever the reason, you may want to remove a tree. You should consider the information in this infographic when you make your decision.
