When Does A Tree Become A Storm Hazard?

Trees are usually a great way to accent your property and provide privacy and shade. It is perfectly normal for trees to have a slight lean. But when a tree is arching over your home because of poor weight distribution or anchor root damage, it’s likely unstable and a potential risk for your home and property. This is a good time to call an expert for an inspection! Our team will look for warning signs such as:

  • Exposed roots at the base of the tree
  • Cracks in the bark, especially cracks running down roots
  • Signs of stress such as peeling bark, lack of foliage, etc

Depending on the severity of the warning signs that our team discovers upon inspection we will determine the best course of action and consult with you on our findings. Typically the safest action is to simply cut down any trees that are hanging over your home as they can cause major property damage if high winds blow them over. However, depending on how much the tree is leaning over your home it may be able to just have potentially dangerous branches pruned or removed to help balance the weight.

If you have a tree that you feel may be a danger to your home or property, don’t hesitate to call our professional team at Krohn Kutz Tree Service to investigate today!
