It is very important to make sure that you are keeping an eye on the trees on your property, so you will know if any of them start to die. This way, you will know when it is time to call a professional tree service to have the tree remove. Otherwise, if you ignore the problem, the tree could fall and either destroy property or potentially injure or kill someone. Here are a few signs that your tree is starting to die:

Bare Branches

Take a close look at all of the branches of your tree. Even if there are some branches that still have healthy leaves on them, if there are a lot of branches that are bare, then you have a problem. The tree is dying and fewer and fewer branches will continue to sprout leaves. You might even notice that there are some old dead leaves on some of the branches, when all of the other trees have new lively leaves. This is because a dead branch will not drop leaves in the fall like a living branch will.

Growing Fungus

If you notice that there is some fungus growing on the trunk of your tree, it may be a sign that the tree is experiencing some rot from in inside out. You will need to get in touch with a tree service expert for a closer examination of the tree. If the tree is dying from the inside out, you will want to go ahead and have it removed from your property by a professional before it comes crashing down on its own.

Damaged Trunk

It is normal to notice that an older tree will lose some of its bark as it ages. However, new bark should grow in its place. If new bark is not growing in its place, there is a very good chance that the tree is not going to make it much longer. It might be best to have a tree specialist examine it to see if it would be best to remove it.

Whenever it comes to the removal of any dead trees, you will want consult with a professional, like one from Pete & Ron's Tree Service, Inc., in order to get the job done. The last thing you want to do is to try to remove the tree on your own, especially if you do not have any experience with the removal of dead trees. Safety should always be the top concern.
