If you notice any of the following signs, it may be an indication that you need to hire a professional tree service:
1. Dead or Dying Branches: Look for the presence of dead or dying branches, which can pose a safety risk and indicate potential tree health issues.
2. Cracks in the Trunk: Visible cracks, splits, or cavities in the trunk may indicate structural weaknesses and potential hazards.
3. Leaning Trees: Trees that are noticeably leaning, especially if the lean has developed suddenly, can be a sign of structural instability.
4. Unhealthy Foliage: Yellowing, discolored, or sparse foliage can be indicative of disease, nutrient deficiencies, or other health issues.
5. Root Issues: Upheaval of soil around the base of the tree may indicate root problems or potential instability.
6. Visible Cavities or Holes: Large cavities, holes, or decayed areas in the trunk can compromise the structural integrity of the tree.
7. Overhanging or Damaged Limbs: Limbs that overhang structures, power lines, or are damaged can be at risk of falling.
8. Encroachment on Structures: Trees growing too close to structures can potentially cause damage to foundations, roofs, or other property.
9. Persistent Leaks or Oozing: Persistent sap or other substances oozing from the trunk can indicate internal decay or disease.
10. Sudden Changes in Appearance: Note any sudden, significant changes in the appearance of the tree, such as wilting or dieback. These things may indicate underlying issues.
