Trees can even cause roof and exterior damages if they are close enough to cascade over your home. These and several more issues can occur if your trees are not properly planted. You can avoid all of these issues by following proper tree planting guidelines so that there is ample space between your trees and your home.

Poorly planted trees can cause structural damage to your home and pose a safety hazard to your family.

Trees can cause structural damage in several different ways when they are not planted correctly on your property. Some of the problems that you should be aware of include the following:

  • Large tree roots pose the biggest threat to your property. Trees are humble giants, but they require the right amount of space in order to grow their large and astonishingly strong roots.
