3 Signs Your Trees Need Professional Attention

Posted on: March 6th, 2023

According to GoTreeQuotes, in 2021, 1.83 billion trees were planted worldwide. Trees are a wonderful addition to both private and public spaces. If you have trees on your property, you may wonder if they require some professional tree care services. Continue reading to learn about a few signs that your trees need professional attention.

1. Unkempt Appearances

Pruning is one of the most popular tree care services. While the unkempt appearance of your trees may seem like a cosmetic problem, it can lead to other types of issues. Unruly branches can become wrapped around power lines and can also become projectiles during periods of heavy wind. Ideally, you should be able to see through the branches of a tree. This also allows sunlight to reach all the branches and keeps the tree healthy. If your tree is looking overgrown, it’s time to schedule a tree trimming and pruning appointment.

2. Dead or Fallen Branches

Branches come and go in the lifetime of a tree. However, the branches near the bottom of the trunk should be healthy and thriving. A few dead branches are usually okay, but if you notice a lot of them, it’s probably a sign of a larger problem. If you’re unsure about the health of a tree due to dead and dying branches, it’s time to call for an inspection. The earlier a problem is detected, the more likely it can be corrected and that the tree can be saved. It’s better to err on the side of caution when it comes to tree health.

3. Splits and Cracks in the Trunk of the Trees

Cracks and splits in your tree’s trunk are never a good sign. In most cases, it’s a sign that the tree is dying. When you’re evaluating your trees and notice problems with the trunk, it’s time to call in a tree specialist right away. Sunken areas within the trunk, holes, or spots where there are pieces of the trunk are missing are other signs that all is not well with your tree. These signs of disease can be corrected when discovered early enough. Be sure to call for services as soon as you notice them.
