Do You Have a Dangerous Tree?

Identifying dangerous trees before winter snowstorms become the norm is a good idea if you want to maintain a safe yard and environment.  To prevent a potentially dangerous situation, checking your trees for signs of weakness is a great way to prepare for the upcoming winter months.  For a thorough tree assessment from a tree care professional, call Westchester Tree Life at (914) 238-0069!

Dangerous Tree Risks

Before review the signs of a dangerous tree, let’s review the risks.  A falling tree can seriously injure one or multiple people, cause extensive property damage and in worst case scenarios, result in death.  To completely safeguard against dangerous tree risks, we highly recommend reaching out to Westchester Tree Life for help from a professional arborist in Westchester County.  Our certified professionals are properly trained in assessing tree health and potentially dangerous tree situations.

Ground Inspection

Begin your inspection at the base of your tree’s trunk.  Pull aside any moss or foliage which may be covering the base of your tree, as you will want a clear view of the soil surrounding the tree.  A tree’s soil features tell-tale signs of a tree’s health; for example, cracked or raised soil which is opposite to your tree’s lean may indicate root disturbances hinting that the tree is in the process of uprooting.

Branch Inspection
