Trees can leave certain telltale signs that need to be removed.
Rot, leaning towards structures, and even certain ailments that may be beyond repair.

In the case of some species of trees such as Mimosa, they have a tendency towards weak wood. This put not only humans but animals at risk of fallen branches, even in healthy trees. Various species including: giant sequoia, coast redwood, lime tree, kumquat tree, and plum tree all require different approaches. So no one tree is the same in tendencies but that’s what we’re here for.
Trees that show at least 50% damage should most likely be removed. If left too long they could collapse and cause damage to property and possible death. In which case requesting an emergency tree removal when these conditions are met would at the very least minimize any type of risk.
The following are some guidelines that can tell you when removal should happen:
- If the trunk appears to be heavily damaged with some wear or cracks.
- If the tree sounds and feels hollow.
- If there are large dead branches.
- If dead branches appear mostly on one side of the tree.
- If the tree is leaning.
- If the tree is under power lines.
- If certain outdated practices such as “topping” have occurred.
- If the tree has a weak root system, sometimes caused by being near a body of water or on a rock ledge.
Additionally it should be noted that large trees should be planted at least 20 feet from your house but smaller trees such as dogwood can be put closer.
Regardless, much thought should be put into the subject before removal occurs. If the tree for instance has historical or sentimental value, the cost of removal could be justified.
HOW MUCH DOES TREE REMOVAL COST?
Costs of removing can vary, this caused by the variation in branch patterns and how tall the tree is. If you do end up having it removed, it is in your best interest to have the tree stump removed as well. A typical price is about $650, but it can vary between $550 and $900 depending on the difficulty of the job.
