Tree hazard types
There are many things that can go wrong with your tree. Generally, these problems involve branches rather than the trunk. Most problems you encounter will be cracks, which can lead to fallen branches. These can fall onto people or property and cause damage that you will need to repair. Dead trees also pose a risk for similar reasons. Even if the tree looks okay, there could be dead roots or root damage that can cause problems later. Not all hazards are obvious, so it is important to have a professional assess your trees.
Tree hazard causes
The causes of tree hazards are varied. Calling a San Antonio arborist is the best way to ensure that not only are your hazards identified, but the causes as well. Most people think of weather damage to trees, but you need to look out for more than just weather problems. Trees are a part of the ecosystem and that invites some problems. If a tree in your area has been removed recently, call us for an inspection. There could be insects or diseases in your area that could harm your tree. A timely inspection can help you to prevent or minimize damage.
What should you expect from a tree inspection? First, there will be a visual inspection. Your arborist will make a note of how the tree looks and any possible external hazards. These might include cracks, leaning, decay, or parts that are dead or dying. We will also check for possible solutions that would allow you to keep your tree with minimal changes to it. In some cases that will be a sufficient check. Other times, you may require more testing. These additional tests can include checking the soil, seeing if the roots are intact and healthy, or instrumental decay checks.
If your inspection reveals hazards that need to be addressed, we will discuss with you what your options will be and what outcome you can expect. The most likely outcome is that we can trim your tree to remove the bad part or parts. This will prevent them from falling at an inopportune moment and allow the rest of your tree to thrive. We may also need to do work on your roots to help them take in more water, help drainage of excess water, or improve the area to promote root growth. Your inspector will discuss your options with you.
