While a healthy tree acts as a breathtaking addition to a business or home, dead or weakened trees create damage, danger and liability. Trees that pose a potential risk may need to be treated, pruned or even removed.

Death or Decay
Dead branches, cavities or decay in the branches or trunk of a tree usually indicate poor health and potential danger. Dead or dying trees are prone to falling, particularly in poor weather, and dead branches in the canopy can fall unexpectedly, causing damage to anything nearby.
Fungal fruiting bodies attached to the trunk or tree branches or signs of termite activity are typically signs of structural damage. Without a strong core, trees can easily rot, collapses or fall, especially if they have had a history of falling branches or root damage within the last 10 years.
Abnormalities or unusual characteristics in a tree, such as unseasonal leaf drop, unseasonal flower production, swollen areas of the base or trunk or cracks or splits in the tree can be cause for concern. Large and heavy branches that don’t taper off in thickness can also be concerning.
