When a tree is too close to your home, it can cause problems for your house. The roots might cause problems for your foundation. The canopy might cause problems for your roof. Therefore, it might make sense to have your tree removed or pruned depending on what a tree service recommends.
Tree Roots Might Become a Problem
The larger a tree, the further it will usually need to be planted from your home. This is because larger trees will be more likely to have more invasive roots. Tree roots actually grow very far away from the trunk of the tree and can try to enter your foundation or will work their way into your pipes and will then cause plumbing issues. The roots will seek water and may need to be trimmed so your home can be protected from potential damage that could be caused by your tree.
Branches Might Damage Your Roof
The longer branches will also sway in the wind and will cause more damage to your home if you do not have your tree pruned or have the entire tree removed. If you have your tree branches pruned, it's important to have this done by a professional so that you won't accidentally damage your home in the process.
The Tree Might Be Damaged
After a major storm, it might be a good idea to have your tree removed. This is because the tree might become damaged as a result of the storm and might become less stable. Then, there might be a risk that the tree will fall over and damage your home.
Other Reasons to Remove a Tree
If you are still not sure if your tree should be removed, you should ask yourself if it is a desirable species. If it is not the type of species you would want on your property, such as a poplar tree, you might want to remove it. You might also want to remove a tree that is diseased or hollow because this type of tree will be unstable and more likely to fal.
Removing a tree near your home can be dangerous because the process of removing the tree can cause it to fall accidentally and damage your home or cause you to become injured. A tree does not always fall in the direction you expect. Therefore, you will want to hire a tree removal service that has experience removing trees.
