A tree should be regularly inspected, especially before and after a storm arrives. A bigger tree has a greater potential for hazard than a smaller tree. A tree that presents danger with significant defects on its structure tend to fail, and can possibly result to damage to properties or injury to people and/or animals nearby. This is why it is important that you're aware of alarming signs of a hazardous tree.
The things which could affect a tree's health are but not limited to: past tree care, landscape and construction activities.. Also, tree topping, trenches, and constructions can have bad impacts on a tree. If the roots are disturbed or cut, it could result to instability.
A tree doesn't have to grow straight up. But a certain trees with a significant lean may imply that there's a problem. Check if there are exposed roots and/or cracked soil around the base of a tree. These may mean that it has begun to lean.
3. Multiple Trunks.
TIP! Begin your landscaping project by making a list of the materials and items you will require. Nothing is worse than starting your landscaping project, only to find out that you are missing something, and have to halt your work until you go out, and get it.
Some trees develop more than one trunk. The multiple trunks of a tree could break if they're not attached properly. A tree with a large trunk with splits or cracks will tend to fail. Inspect the tree for splits or cracks when trunks are linked.
4. Weakly Attached Branches.
Check on the branches where they are attached to the tree trunk. Tight V-shaped unions are more likely to break than open U-shaped unions. Also, a tree with splits, cracks and/or some branches originating from the same spot on the trunk could present problems.
5. Decay and Cavities.
Check branches and/or the trunk for decayed or hollow spots and peeling bark. Significantly big decay areas and decay on areas where branches unite with the trunk could indicate serious structural issues. Conks or mushrooms growing on or at the tree's base can be signs of decaying wood.
6. Branch and Trunk Splits or Cracks.
Check the trunk and large branches for splits or cracks. Big and deep cracks could mean structural weakness and the need for careful evaluation.
These are broken branches that are still partly connected to the tree. Whether partly or fully separated from the tree's trunk, they tend to fall unexpectedly and thus they ought to be detached immediately. Also, stubs left by the broken branches should be removed to prevent the spread of decay.
Deadwood are dead branches. They have to be detached from the tree, as they will eventually fall. Branches over 2 inches in diameter can cause severe damage or injury when they fall, especially when they fall from a relatively high spot.
