Trees are simply astonishing

They cleanse our ground water, they oxygenate the atmosphere we need for life, they lessen unpleasant noises and they slow down the rate of climate change. Trees also encourage biodiversity due to the fact that they are normally shelter to several flora and fauna varieties. As stated by the Arbor Day Foundation, a single sizable tree is able to produce a day's supply of oxygen for as many as 4 individuals. All are great reasons why Port St. Lucie has been honored as a 2017 Tree City USA. The city has also launched its PSL Challenge in 2018 which aims to plant 185,000 trees within city limits; 1 for every man, woman and child resident in the city in 2018. Trees are certainly excellent for the planet Earth, our immediate environment and they lift our spirits too. More than 99% of the time they are a solely positive presence in our lives.

So just what's the purpose behind removing trees? Why is this, the most major type of tree service, required from time to time?

Trees are alive but can die too

Should a tree become unhealthy, it depletes its own physical strength that harms its ability to bear aloft multiple tons of lumber and leaf, particularly in a windy violent storm. Even palm trees can suffer the same fate. And so when we are asked to check your trees as part of our local service to you, our arborist typically checks for the following weaknesses:

  • Roots - The health and well-being of the root system is similarly significant with respect to the physical condition of the tree. If they reveal damage or decay, then your tree is most likely in peril. Fungus on either the tree roots or near the bottom of the tree trunk indicates dead wood. In the case that there is really a great deal of fungal growth, in most cases there will likely be no saving the tree and it will collapse sooner as opposed to later.

    A loosening of soil next to the roots signifies a partly uprooted tree. One single strong wind event could very well see the tree collapsing, preferably not onto your home.

  • Tree Trunk - Fine wood grains around the bottom of the trunk suggests tree-boring beetles are inside or laying eggs. In this situation the deterioration will go on unseen. The tree will most likely become more and more weak from disease, loss of tree sap together with lack of structural integrity. Then it will probably fall down.

    Additional signs of disease may be discovered if ever the trunk has bark missing or perhaps very flaky bark. Our experts check for spaces, fractures and hollows in the trunk too, especially if recent. A hollow can survive with a void of up to about 30% but anything more that this should be of greater concern.

  • Lean - Should your tree start to slant more towards one single direction where it wasn't slanting before, it might indicate a compromised tree. The problem can be even more serious when accompanied by bare and/or sagging limbs without leaves.
