Removing a tree from your property is a big decision. Trees are an asset to any property, providing shade, wind protection, homes for wildlife, and visual appeal.
Unfortunately, there are times when a tree may need to be removed, such as if the tree poses a safety hazard or is causing damage to your home. In some cases, you may be able to save a tree with the proper care and treatment. If the damage is too severe, removal may be the best, safest option.
If you’re unsure whether it’s time to remove a tree from your property, there are a few key indicators to look for.
Signs and symptoms of an unhealthy tree:

Remove it before it has a chance to cause any more damage.
