Arborist-Approved Tips for Handling a Dead Tree, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

If you’ve grown accustomed to the trees on your property, you might be disappointed to find one is nearing the end of its life span. Despite this, it’s important to take action for the safety of everyone in your home or building. With some guidance from the respected arborists at Nelson Tree Co. in North Huntington, PA, you can learn the right way to proceed. 

Here, they provide an arborist-approved guide to dealing with a dead tree:

  • arboristStay Clear: If you believe your tree is dying or already dead, your first act should be to inform all residents in your home to keep their distance. It’s also worth putting down cones or other warning signs to alert guests or passersby that the area may be dangerous. Since the tree could fall at any time, it’s best to steer clear until after the removal. 
  • Schedule an Inspection: Once everyone is safe, call an arborist. Their professional team will come over to perform an inspection and assess the condition of the tree. They’ll look for signs of disease, such as leaning, and make an educated decision on whether the tree should be salvaged or removed.
  • Seek Removal Services: If the experts believe your tree is dead, it should be removed as soon as possible. On one hand, you want to eliminate the possibility of it falling and hurting someone. On the other, if the disease is caught early on, you may be able to stop the spread to neighboring trees and help them avoid the same fate. 

For help with tree removal, reach out to Nelson Tree Co. You can even add stump removal service to your order, so you’re left with a clear, attractive, and safe yard. To schedule an appointment, just call (724) 863-7682. Learn more about the arborist by visiting their website
