Damaged trees can be dangerous
A damaged tree becomes weaker and weaker over time. With severe enough storms and strong enough wind, a damaged tree can be blown over and cause even more damage to houses, cars, property, wildlife and even people. Heavy falling branches can also pose a significant danger to both people and property. While some dead trees can indeed last for years without losing their strength, it can be difficult to know if this is the case, so it’s best to call out Don to have a look.
Interference with power lines
Above ground power lines need to be kept clear of over-growing trees and branches. If your tree is encroaching on power lines, chances are the local Logan city council will have its workers tend to it. Some trees however can pose ongoing threats due to their size and capacity to grow quickly. In these cases, a simple lopping job may not be sufficient.
Trees are great at providing shade and shelter against the sun, but sometimes there can be too much shade. If there’s a tree on your property that’s getting in the way of your sunlight, have Don come over to assess what sort of lopping or removing services would be suitable for your home. You’d be surprised just how much sun a giant, unkempt tree can block.
Amongst the most common reasons for tree removal in Logan is damage to sewage or water pipes. As the roots of a tree grow around a pipe, the pipe can become blocked, cracked or damaged. While the issue can be repaired for the short term, it’s likely that the roots will simply grow back over time. We’d be happy to come out and inspect your property and provide a thorough assessment of whether tree removal is or is not the right option.
Another common type of mischief tree roots can get up to is the lifting and cracking of paving, stone paths and other ground works. Over time, thick roots can be deceptively damaging. While they can be cut back and the paving fixed, you’re likely to face the same problem again down the track.
Even a healthy and growing tree that’s leaning too far to one side can be a potentially dangerous hazard. Strong gusts of wind and wild storms can threaten to topple a leaning tree and cause extensive damage to homes and properties, and people.
