Tree Removal and Good Health
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
For some, cutting down trees results in severe compunction, but that does not need to be the case. There is a correct time to cut down and prune trees. In fact, when done properly, pruning makes the tree healthier. But how do you know when to cut down a tree? Look for these signs to determine whether or not you need to yell "Timber!"
For starters, if the tree is dead, that is a very good sign that it should come down!
If the tree is unhealthy and you notice dead branches or decay, it should be pruned or taken out before it negatively impacts other nearby trees.
If it has been badly damaged by a storm or lightning, that is also a good time to put it out of its misery.
Yet another valid reason to fell a tree is if the location has become dangerous. If the tree leans toward the house or shed, that could prove disastrous if blown over.

Maybe your tree doesn't need to be taken out entirely, but it may need to be pruned. Here are some reasons to prune a tree:
Get rid of dead branches.
Keep it from touching telephone wires.
Branches damaged by storms.
Or even to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
