Trees are an asset to your property, as they add character to your curb appeal and create welcoming shade; but, these structures can also become a liability, as they can pose serious safety risks and cause costly property damage. To avoid major problems, if you are experiencing any of the following issues, it’s in your best interest to contact a company that offers emergency tree services.

Weak Support

If you notice that the roots of any of the trees on your property are exposed, rotted, or otherwise weakened, emergency tree service is necessary. Trees that are poorly supported eventually fall and could cause serious damages.

After a Major Storm

Ice, snow, heavy rains, and high winds can wreak havoc on a tree. After a storm passes, inspect your trees. If they’re leaning, have damaged limbs, or have toppled over, have an emergency tree company assess the situation.


Disease-infected trees aren’t only at risk of toppling, they can also affect nearby plant life. Missing bark, absent leaves (when the tree should be in bloom), and cracks and cavities in the trunk are all signs of disease. If you notice any of these signs, you should contact an experienced tree company that offers emergency services.
