If there is a dead tree in your yard, then you pose a great risk to yourself and everyone else in that home. Falling trunks and limbs can injure a person fatally and should thus be done away with. If your area is affected by severe winds and harsh storms, then your trees can be greatly assaulted. In fact, these are some of the problems which can fatally affect a tree. If you have a tree which has died due to lack of enough water supply or nutrients, you should consider having it removed completely from that area.
If there is a tree which is showing signs of dying, you should contact an arborist who will examine it. This can even save your tree on time from dying or high costs of cutting it down. Whichever this goes, a dead tree should always be removed and below are the reasons why;
Dead trees attract pests
If your tree has already died or is in the process of dying, then this will not deter insects and pests from building a nest there. You may see bluebirds moving in but what you not see are the rats and termites which are also establishing their territories there. Within a short period of time, these termites will find a way into your home and you will have a whole new set of problems to deal with. To avoid all of these problems, a dead tree should be cut down before it is too late. It would be a smart idea to call tree removal experts.
Dead trees are unattractive
If you have dead trees in your landscape, then you have already discovered how unpleasant they look. One may have spent a lot of money in improving their landscapes but these dead trees will be doing everything to undo that. For your yard to look as appealing as you may wish it to be, always make sure that all the dead trees have been removed completely. In fact, you can pluck it off, or contact grinding professionals, and sell it hence returning you some cash.
Diseases in trees are contagious
If your trees are unfortunate enough to have contracted a disease and they are dying, you will need to ensure all of them have been removed. In case there are those which haven’t yet contracted the disease, then consider saving them from the others.
For instance, powdery mildews can develop on the trunks and branches as well. The leaves will then become susceptible to chlororis where they turn yellow. When they fall of on the ground, they will instantly affect any other flower that may be beneath the tree. To ensure that such doesn’t happen, you will need to do away with all those trees which have been affected by the disease. This will save you the trouble of having to cut down all the others if they get affected which may also leave your landscape looking very unpleasant.
