How Does Removing Hazardous Trees Prevent Further Property Damage?

Removing hazardous trees is essential to ensure safety and prevent property damage. Dangerous trees can fall on structures, leading to extensive and costly damage, which can be avoided through timely removal. Invasive tree roots can also damage foundations and underground pipes, making removal essential to avoid expensive repairs.

Removing dangerous trees also reduces liability risks by preventing injuries from falling branches. Dead or dying trees are fire hazards, particularly in wildfire-prone areas, and removing them reduces combustible material. Damaged trees are more likely to be uprooted during severe weather, so their removal minimizes storm-related damage.

What Are the Signs of a Tree That Needs Emergency Removal?

Identifying a tree that needs emergency removal is the best way to prevent potential hazards.

Here are some signs that indicate your tree might require immediate attention:

Leaning Tree

A sudden lean-especially when accompanied by cracked or raised soil at the base-can indicate root damage and instability.

Damaged Roots

Exposed, damaged, or decaying roots weaken your tree's foundation, increasing its risk of falling.

Cracks and Splits

Deep cracks or splits in the trunk or major limbs can compromise your tree's structural integrity.

Decay and Rot

Significant decay or rot-often evident through mushrooms or fungi growing at the base or along the trunk-indicates internal damage.

Dead or Hanging Branches

Large dead branches or hanging limbs signify decay and pose a risk of falling.

Cavities and Holes

Cavities or holes in your tree's trunk weaken the tree and make it prone to falling.

Damaged Bark

Extensive peeling or missing bark can be a sign of disease or decay.

Root Plate Movement

Movement in the root plate or soil around the base of your tree, particularly after strong winds, can signal instability.

Severe Weather Damage

Trees damaged by storms, lightning, or other severe weather events may have compromised structures that require immediate attention.

Do You Need a Permit for Emergency Tree Removal?

A permit generally isn't required for residential property owners to remove a tree on their property, provided your house is already completed and occupied. However, if a tree is removed from your front yard, you may need to replace it to meet specific landscape requirements. These requirements typically involve planting new trees to maintain the city's landscaping standards​.

Can You Stay in Your House While a Tree Is Removed?

Yes, you can usually stay in your house during emergency tree removal, but it depends on the specifics of the situation and your tree's location. Safety is a top priority. We'll let you know when it's safe to occupy your home during our services or if you'll need to relocate temporarily while we fell your tree.

How Long Does Emergency Tree Removal Take?

The duration of emergency tree removal can vary significantly depending on several factors:

  • Tree size and type: Larger trees or those with extensive root systems generally take longer to remove.
  • Location: Trees close to structures, utility lines, or other sensitive areas may require more careful handling and more time to complete the removal process.
  • Extent of damage: Severely damaged trees that pose an immediate risk may necessitate faster but more complex removal processes.
  • Accessibility: Difficult-to-reach trees, like those in backyards without direct access, can prolong the removal process.
