What is Considered a Tree Emergency?

A tree emergency can be caused by a few different factors. Generally, a tree emergency is when a branch or a tree poses an imminent threat to people or property. Sometimes the damage has already been done. For example, if a storm causes a tree branch to fall on your home, a fence, or a vehicle, it’s a tree emergency.

We can determine if the tree poses a threat, and what your options are to avoid property damage and possible physical harm. We always want to protect our customers and avoid tree emergencies!

Common Signs You Need Tree Removal

Sometimes a tree that looks dead is very much alive. Other times, trees that look solid can be blown over in a storm. Luckily, there are some signs you can look for that indicate an unhealthy tree.

  • Lack of Leaves - The most noticeable sign is a lack of leaves on the tree. When spring rolls around and the trees start to grow leaves again, look out for a tree that is barren. It could be a sign that the tree is sick or dying.
  • Mushroom Growing - Another common sign that you may need tree removal is the presence of mushrooms at the base or on the trunk of your tree. Certain fungi can damage the roots of the tree and make it unstable.
  • Trunk and Bark Health - A visual inspection of the trunk and bark of a tree can tell you much. If you see cracks forming in the trunk and bark falling away, the tree may need removal. You can also peel away some of the bark and look for green underneath. If you only see brown or black, the tree is dead or dying.
  • Bare Branches - An early sign that a tree is struggling is a bare branch or branches. If you notice bare patches in the canopy, it could mean that the tree is diseased or infected.

Before deciding on tree removal in Duncan, contact VI Tree Service for a tree risk assessment. Our expert arborists can help you develop a plan of action that best suits your needs.

The Benefits of Pruning

Tree pruning is one of the best ways to ensure the health of your trees. In fact, pruning is an essential part of plant health care for a few reasons.

  • Removes Diseased Branches - To avoid the spread of deadly diseases, arborists often prune infected branches away to save the rest of the tree.
  • Helps Trees Thrive - Maintenance tree pruning can help a tree by increasing air circulation and allowing more sunlight to reach the remaining branches.
  • Promotes New Growth - When done correctly, tree pruning promotes the growth of lush new leaves and branches.

The Stump Grinding Process

Many homeowners prefer stump grinding over stump removal. Removing a tree stump often requires heavy machinery that can tear up the grass and can be an ordeal to get into a backyard. Plus, stump removal typically leaves a gaping hole in the ground to be filled in. Stump grinding, on the other hand, leaves the roots in the ground and doesn’t require heavy-duty machinery.

Stump grinding is done by machine, but it’s usually smaller and easier to maneuver than those used to remove stumps. When the grinding process is done, all you’ll have left is some sawdust. Depending on the stump, the grinder can take the stump down to below ground level.

How to Care for Your Plants

Caring for your plants mostly requires a little bit of attention. For most trees, mother earth provides water and nutrients while the sun does the rest. But, it’s a good idea to inspect your trees once in a while. Look for fungus on the trunk, bald spots, and barren branches. If you think that one or more of your trees is infected, call your local Duncan tree service as soon as possible. For newly-planted trees, make sure they get plenty of water and sunlight. If you need to prune, remember to cut down to a bud and not to leave stubs.
