There are many reasons that trees may need to be removed from your property. They may simply need to be relocated or they could be dead or dying. Trees could be growing too close to power lines, buildings, or sheds. They could also have sustained storm damage.

Trees can fall victim to disease, insect infestation, and more. When these trees begin to die, they start to look unsightly and can also pose safety hazards.

Here are some reasons that trees may need to be removed from residential and commercial properties in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lee County, and nearby Florida locations.

Dead or Dying Trees Can Create Safety Issues for Family, Friends, or Customers

This dead tree in Cape Coral poses a safety risk.

When a tree is attacked by a disease, it can start to kill off part or all of the tree. This results in a dead or dying tree and the parts of the tree that die are weakened. These dead branches are prone to snap off and fall to the ground below, creating safety issues for those on your property.

A dead branch can easily fall on power lines, damage cars, or even hit someone who could be standing below the tree. Entirely dead trees pose even larger safety issues, particularly if they are located close to a home or business. Dead trees may fall onto the building and injure family, friends, or customers inside the structure.

For these reasons, it is best to be proactive and remove dead or dying trees before they hurt someone or damage a structure on your property.

Diseased Trees Can Spread That Disease to Other Trees on Your Property Through Water or Air

Many types of tree and plant disease can easily spread through water or air. When these diseases spread to other trees throughout your property, they begin to attack them as well and cause more of your trees to die.

It’s important to remove a diseased tree when it begins to show signs of infection so that the disease can’t spread, and it’s also important to leave that removal up to a trained professional such as Tim's Tree Service who can remove the disease properly without leaving any trace of it behind.

Trees Are Growing Too Close to Buildings, Power Lines, Or Sustained Storm Damage

This tree in Fort Myers, FL has sustained storm damage.

As trees grow, sometimes their branches reach out too close to a home or business and usually, those can be trimmed back away from the building. But sometimes, it is not possible to redirect the growth of a tree. In that case, it’s recommended to have the tree removed completely.

Another safety hazard could be branches growing too close to utility lines. If a tree branch were to snap a power line, that could cause more of a disaster as that means a live power line is now on the ground, posing electrocution dangers. In the case of branches growing close to lines, it’s best to have the tree trimmed back or removed entirely.

In our area of Florida, we see quite a bit of rainy weather, particularly thunderstorms, tropical storms, and even hurricanes. These storms sweep through the area and often cause damage to the trees on our property. When a tree is damaged too far beyond repair, it will need to be removed.

New Construction or Landscaping Bed Installation May Require Tree Removal or Relocation

When a property owner wants to add on new construction, such as a new building or a workshop area, it may be necessary to remove a tree in that location before construction begins. It will be easier to build the structure after the tree is gone and the stump is ground away.

A new landscaping bed may also require the removal of a tree, depending on the landscape design and what kind of plants are being installed in the new bed. The existing tree may just not blend in with the planned landscape.
