Having trees inside your property can make it look more inviting, and ensure shades that can keep your home and the surrounding areas cooler. But the comfort and joy would be short-lived if the trees cause problems. Here are some of the times when you should opt for professional tree removal Darwin services.
Cracks or holes in trees can be suggestive of issues related to weather. Based on where you live in, cracks or holes could result from too hot or cold weather. In the colder areas of the country, the decaying of a tree that is scalded by sunlight can be exacerbated by hail, ice or frost. In warmer regions, drought-like conditions or very high heat can also cause the falling down of a tree by lightning or sun-scalding.
After holes or cracks develop, termites and other insects can roost in the open wounds. The tree needs to be examined for tunnels, holes or other evidences of infestation of insects. In case the tree is located closer to home, and pest issues (if any) are untreated, the problem might get spread to the adjoining areas, which include the house itself. Other than the unseemliness and inconvenience of having pests within the home, termite infestation and activity may cause plenty of damages to the foundation. This can be even costlier and more awkward to deal with.
This might be another reason for you to call up a tree removal service provider. A leaning tree is more breakage prone. It is of course a fact that this can be dangerous for properties and people. If a tree is unhealthy and weakened, its heavy branches may make it topple. Based on how near a tree is to a home, there can be a fire hazard or clogging of gutters due to broken branches. There may even be a fire hazard. Electrical lines and telephone communication lines can be affected by weak and leaning trees. If a leaning tree affects or threatens a neighbor’s property, a homeowner needs to consider getting it removed.
Home improvements / renovations
A tree might also need to be removed if you are planning to renovate or improve your home, and the location of the tree comes in the way of actualizing that plan. Also, if the roots of the tree are causing damage to the foundation of the house, it is best to have it removed.
