Tree Removal Concord
Why Should You Remove a Dead Tree?
Severe winds, harsh weather and inadequate nutrition can all contribute to the death of a tree. If a tree has died in your yard, you might be considering cutting it down on your own. However, in cases such as this, its always best to enlist the services of a professional tree removal company to avoid accidents and potential property damage. If one of your trees has died, you will want to remove it as soon as possible for the following reasons:
Dead trees are magnets for pests
If a tree is dead or dying, it does not have the natural protective mechanisms that help protect it from insect infestation. If you end up with a termite or carpenter ant infestation, your property and those living there will be at increase risk of bodily harm from falling tree branches. The tree itself will also be weakened further as insects tunnel through the wood, making it even more prone to falling on people or the house itself.
Dead trees decrease curb appeal
If you are trying to maintain a quality look on your property, you will want to ensure that you are keeping an eye on your trees. Investing in professional landscaping services while ignoring the state of your trees is a waste of time. Also, maintaining your trees will help keep your cub appeal up. When you want to sell your home, this can help you bring in more cash that you would otherwise.

Diseases can be contagious
Tree removal Concord NC is our specialty, and if your trees are suffering from a disease that has the potential to result in their death, other plants have the potential to contract that disease as well. As an example, powdery mildew diseases that are common to certain trees have the ability develop on the branches and within the trunk. The leaves will show the effects of chlorosis, a condition where they lose their green color and become yellow or limey instead. If you planted flowers or other plants in the same area, they could become infected with the same disease and will pass it on to other healthy plants. Some of the most common diseases are listed below. If you notice any strange symptoms at all on any of your trees, contact a professional arborist immediately to minimize any damage.
Anthracnose is common and attacks a wide variety of plants and trees. Anthracnose attacks trees in two different ways. The spot variety affects leaves and blossoms. The more destructive canker variety affects the tree’s vascular system.
Spot anthracnose usually starts in late spring and early summer and manifests itself as small light brown spots on leaves and blossoms. These spots are usually noticed during cool and humid spring weather. The anthracnose fungus remains dormant on the bark of the tree or fallen leaves. In the spring, this fungus is spread around by the wind and rain to the new leaves and blossoms forming on the tree’s branches. After several seasonal cycles, the fungus will eventually kill the tree’s branches, and eventually, the entire tree.
Canker anthracnose is manifested by dark colored indentation or lesions forming on branches and twigs. As the tree becomes more stressed, it is common to see smaller saplings begin sprouting from the tree’s base as the tree struggles to produce enough nutrition for survival from the affected limbs.
- Armillaria Root Rot
Armillaria root rot is caused by a soil-based fungus that attacks and rots the roots of many plants and trees. Armillaria root rot can be detected by the dulling of leaf color and slowed growing rates during the growing season. In many cases, the leaves of a tree affected by armillaria root rot will wilt and might turn yellow and borrow. Major branches may die or show signs of wilting. Fruit trees and ornamental trees might be able to live for several growing seasons before succumbing to the disease. However, the rate at which a tree dies will also be affected b the amount of additional stresses – such as insect infestation and water conditions – that the tree is under.
Trees are not just affected by diseases. Strong winds and intense storms can weaken trees and can even cause them to fall.
