Trees are often planted close to homes and buildings in order to provide shade and aesthetic appeal. They may also be planted near sidewalks and roads as wind breaks and to enhance property values. A problem with a tree located near the road, a building or your home could put you, your family and passersby in danger. We offer hazardous tree inspections in Saluda, NC. Our prompt and thorough inspections help you to avoid serious safety problems.
There are many reasons why a tree could become a safety hazard. One of the most common reasons why we come out to perform hazardous tree inspections is storm damage. A storm with strong winds could partially uproot a tree. Winds could also crack or break a large tree limb. Lightning strikes associated with thunderstorms also cause hazardous situations with trees. The energy from a lightning strike could damage the tree’s structure, making it likely to fall down at any time.
Ice and hail storms also cause damage to trees. The weight of the ice covering a tree could pull limbs or the entire tree down. Hail larger than a 1-inch diameter also has the potential to cause serious tree limb damage.
Trees may also become damaged by disease or pests. Emerald ash borers, carpenter ants and termites are all known to weaken the structure of trees, making it possible for the tree to fall. We offer thorough same-day inspections of trees that may be safety hazards to your property in Saluda, NC.
