Consult with a professional tree company to improve the health and appearance of your trees and to prevent pests from harming your tree. They will help you find the right treatment and nip them in the bud for healthy, beautiful trees.
Dead Trees Spread Disease
If your tree died due to disease, leaving it may promote the development and spread of disease to other trees on the property. To protect the health of your trees, remove the dead tree as soon as possible.
If you notice unhealthy or unusual growth on your trees, contact a tree service to help you determine the cause and treat it. If the tree is not yet dead, they will consult with you about the pros and cons of removing it versus treating it. Ultimately, the decision to remove will be up to you.
Dead Trees Are Dangerous
Finally, dead trees on your property are dangerous to the safety of both property and persons nearby. Dead limbs can break off from the tree and hit your house, car, or a passer-by, which can be cause a lot of damage.
