Why Should I Remove The Dead Tree in My Yard?

Do you have an old tree or two in your backyard? Chances are, it could be dead or on it’s way out. Call in the professionals to take a look. Removing dead trees can have many benefits and save you a lot of trouble in the future. Here are some reason to remove the dead trees off of your property:

Dead Trees Are a Safety Hazard

The safety of your family should be the first reason for removing a dead tree from your yard. Dead and decomposed trees can break or uproot during a storm or high winds. Their core and roots are fragile, and can end up falling on your home, car, or anything else on your property. You want to avoid this happening at all costs. The amount of money you’ll spend on removing the trees will be a lot less than trying to replace your roof.

Falling Trees Could Cost You A Lot of Money

Dead trees can end up costing you more money than they should. If a tree ruins your property during a storm, your insurance will most likely cover repair and removal costs. But, if the tree falls because of negligence, you will likely be paying for the damage. This includes if the tree falls onto your neighbor’s property.

Pests and Insects Love Dead Trees

Deadwood is a preferred habitat for many pests and insects. Some of them use it to live in, and others get nutrients from whatever is growing inside the tunnels or even eat the actual wood. Common deadwood bugs can include:

  • Beetles
  • Hymenoptera
  • Fly larva
  • Mosquitos
  • Bees
  • Wasps

This may not seem like a big deal, but if that tree is close to your home, those pests will make their way to your house and possibly do some damage or start living inside.

Dead Trees Are Eye Sores

 Although looks aren’t typically an urgent reason to remove the tree, removing it because of the look can help out your yard anyways. If you are trying to sell your home, you should have dead trees removed. Dead or dying trees hurt the resale value of a home or property, and the costs of tree removal provide a 100 percent ROI. Plus, the very last thing you’d need when trying to sell your home is a tree falling on the roof and causing damage.
