Signs A Tree Might Fall

Trees can damage your home, car, yard and sometimes even your family in many ways. You can’t help but admire the beauty of large trees when you buy a house with them. There are some downsides to larger trees in your yard. We’ll be covering a few ways that trees can damage your home in our next blog post, but today we will focus on one: falling.

Trees can fall for many reasons. However, knowing when it is about to fall is the best way to stop it from doing any damage to your home or family. These are some of the fastest ways to determine if a tree may be on the brink of falling.

Deep Cracks

Deep cracks in the tree trunk can be a sign that a tree is at risk of falling. Deep cracks in a tree trunk can reveal the weak points and help you to gauge how close it is to falling apart. If the crack is very deep and the tree is in danger of snapping, you should call a professional immediately and try to keep the tree away from your home.

Hole in the Trunk

We are used to seeing trees with cute holes in their trunks. However, this is a bad sign for trees. This is a sign that the trunk is becoming weaker and is at risk of falling. It could also indicate a diseased tree. This is something to be aware of. A professional is someone you can rely upon when this happens. We can help you determine the root cause of the problem and the best way to resolve it.
