Emergency Tree Removal


Emergency Tree Removal

Trees are beautiful and useful additions to any garden or yard. It can be difficult to part with them, but sometimes it is best to remove the tree before disaster strikes. Dead, dying, and precarious trees should be removed lest they cause extensive damage and harm to nearby property and pedestrians. Though tree removal is our last resort at Southern Star Tree, it is certainly an option. When other safety management options such as pruning or disease mitigation does not work, then call Southern Star Tree for an emergency tree removal. Our friendly representatives and ISA certified arborists are available to take your call no matter the time of the day or the day of the week.

The Risks of Feeble Trees

Trees are generally sturdy structures that can live tens or even hundreds of years. However, they can come crashing down in an instant if they are diseased, decayed, or damaged. A feeble tree can come crashing down on cars, roofs, fences, utility lines, or pedestrians. Because the tree is on your property, you will be liable for the damages. Insurance policies may not cover damages if it was preventable. We recommend that you have periodic tree inspections if you do not understand arboriculture so that you do not have to schedule an emergency tree removal in Atlanta when you notice the tree is creeping downward.

When Is It Time to Say Goodbye?

If a tree falls over from your property, then the damages are your responsibility if the tree should have been removed. The ordinary person may not be able to detect most signs of a tree that should be removed, but Southern Star Tree has put together some red flags to look for:

  • Dead Branches: It is okay if a few branches are decaying or dead, but if fifty percent or more of the tree is dead or damaged, then it is probably time to remove the tree.
  • Root Defects: Heaving soil and fungi growing near the tree roots are signs of root issues. A tree with weak roots is like a house with a weak foundation.
  • Damaged Trunk: A cracked, split, or hallow trunk indicate decay. Though trees can live for years with a decay, it is better to be safe than sorry.
  • Under or Close to Utility Lines: If your tree is under a utility line or too close to a building or structure, then you run the risk of damaging that structure. Remove the tree before damage is done.
