3 Signs Your Tree May Fall
Responding to a fallen tree is always an emergency service, but there are still some ways to prevent this from happening. Three signs to look out for include:
- Rotting – One of the most easily identifiable signs that there is an “at risk” tree in your yard is rotting. Usually rot will be seen closer to the roots and includes the presence of mushrooms and other molding.
- Leaning – If you see a tree leaning to one direction, or exposed roots, there is an issue with your tree. Trees should generally be upright and sturdy, and a leaning tree could be a liability during storms season.
- Falling Branches – Is your tree literally falling apart? If a tree starts to lose complete branches and pieces of bark, this could definitely be a sign of worse things to come.
If you see any of these symptoms, give us a call and get tree service, which can easily remediated symptoms before they escalate.
