7 Signs You Need a Tree Service: What to Look for in Your Trees
Date March 15, 2022
Whether it’s residential or commercial landscaping, trees are an important part of your property’s curb appeal. They can provide space for you to relax and unwind at home, and they can help make your business look all the more welcoming. If you’re like most people in Dallas, you take pride in your trees and do what you can to keep them looking their best. But sometimes, even with the best intentions, it’s easy to miss something that needs attention. If you’re starting to see any of the following signs, it might be time to call a tree service:
Your tree has developed drooping or overextended branches
So, your trees have branches hanging a little too close to the ground or growing a little too far out from the trunk. This could be a hazardous situation for the wrong stormy conditions or lack of lighting while walking around your land at night. Time to call in a pro arborist who can safely trim your branches back before gravity makes crude work of it for you
Your tree seems lackluster or unwell
So, your trees are looking discolored, flaky, or cracked. Call TreeNewal tree services of Dallas as quick as possible to come diagnose what’s ailing your arbors. The sooner it’s handled, the more likely your trees can be saved.
If your tree looks sick, but you don’t know what disease is to blame, then a qualified arborist can help you. An arborist can diagnose the disease affecting your tree and then treat your tree to cure the disease or at least lessen its effects.
Your tree has fundamentally weakened
So, your trees have become hollowed or have some branches that look ready to split apart. Structural integrity is the #1 concern for an arborist. It risks the safety of you, your property, and possibly also your other surrounding trees. An arborist can best guide you on the right next step, be it bracing or removal.
A funny structural shape is also caused for closer inspection. Perhaps the branches are growing lopsided, or the trunk appears to be leaning. Don’t put off getting this situation assessed, as the longer it grows incorrectly, the harder it will be to eventually correct.
Your tree is at risk of touching powerlines
So, your trees are reaching a bit too close to those nearby powerlines. As this involves dangerous proximity to electric current, it’s an absolute must that you call an ISA-certified arborist to handle this big task.
If your tree’s canopy is growing dangerously close to overhead powerlines, then you need to trim those branches back. This is a potentially dangerous job, so you need the most qualified person for the job, an arborist.
Your tree was harmed in a storm
So, your tree has some residual damage from a storm that blew through. Call in some assistance with the clean-up of any debris and also to double-check the health of yours that may have been affected. For example, if your tree has been struck by lightning, some thoughtful application of fast-release fertilizer may be just what it needs, but always check with the pros first!
Did You Know: Oak trees are especially prone to lightning strikes, often due to their exceptionally tall height.
You tree has been plagued by insects or infection
So, your tree has some unwanted pests. There are lots of DIY solutions floating around the internet on how to control the problem, but one mishandled ingredient or application may be what ends up making the issue even worse. A tree professional will be best equipped to figure out what exactly is the source and how to efficiently correct it.
They will be able to determine if, say, a branch has been affected to the point of needing removal. You also want someone who knows how to protect any nearby trees as well, as many bugs and diseases can easily spread.
Your tree has thickly overgrown leaves
So, your tree is doing a little too much shading. If the foliage is too dense, it may lead to any grass and plants beneath ending up with not enough sun. Make sure that when you look up from below any shady spots, you’re still able to see some rays of light peek through. If you are not, you’ll definitely want TreeNewal tree services to come do some thinning for you.
