Why You Should Remove a Dead Tree

A lush, healthy tree can greatly enhance your home’s landscape. On the flip side, a dead tree can be quite the eyesore and detract from the beauty and curb appeal of your home. Unfortunately there are a lot of elements that can severely affect a tree’s health, including severe winds, harsh storms, drought, improper trimming, fungus, and even insects like wood-boring bugs. When one of your trees dies, contact a tree removal service in Atlanta to safely bring it down and dispose of the dead tree. Here are some important reasons to hire a tree service to remove a dead tree:

Dead Trees are Dangerous

Decay and decomposition gradually compromise the structural integrity of a tree after it dies. Weakened branches may fall during or a storm or under their own weight, causing damage to whatever or whoever is beneath them at the time. People and animals can suffer serious injury, if not death, from being hit by a falling branch. In time the entire tree may fall, so hire someone to remove a dead tree as soon as you can.

Tree Diseases are Contagious

If your tree died from a disease, other plants and trees can contract that disease. If you suspect that a tree has died or is dying, schedule a tree inspection with a professional arborist. This inspection will reveal the cause of the tree’s death and allow the arborist to treat nearby plants and trees if a contagious tree disease is the culprit.

Dead Trees are Unattractive

Perhaps most importantly of all, you should have a dead tree removed because dead trees are quite simply not aesthetically pleasing. If you spend time and money on other aspect of landscaping, you’re counteracting those upgrades by leaving a dead tree in your yard. A tree removal service in Atlanta can get rid of the eyesore and clean up your landscape in no time.
