One of the most enjoyable parts of living in Baton Rouge is the area’s generous assortment of gorgeous trees. Our corner of Louisiana is home to some of the loveliest trees in the world, from mighty hickory trees to the fruitful pecan trees. Unfortunately, even the mightiest oak eventually dies out. When that happens, it is time to enlist an arborist to undertake professional dangerous tree removals in Baton Rouge, LA.
Don’t remove the tree yourself
If the time has come to take down one of the trees in your yard, you may be tempted to try and remove the thing yourself. That’s not a good idea. The bigger the tree, the more research is required to take it down. That means more prep, more work and way more math.
A professional will go to the effort of taking out larger branches higher up before actually felling the tree itself. Then, there may be paperwork required to set up the equipment (and clear a landing zone) for the dying tree. Finally, a professional has the tools and education to properly remove a given tree based on its species and general health.
There’s a reason that the safest route is hiring professionals for dangerous tree removals in Baton Rouge, LA.
What does your bark look like?
The first thing to do to determine the health of a tree is scratch off a few small pieces of bark. If the tree’s skin underneath is white and supple, you’re in good shape. If the bark is dry and brown or gray, there are problems brewing.
Are mushrooms growing?
Fungi like mushrooms thrive on decay. If mushrooms are growing on or around the base of your tree, it could be the result of internal problems.
How is the trunk?
While you’re inspecting your tree, make sure to do a quick lap around its trunk. Look for any signs of stress, like cracks. If you spot problems with the trunk of the tree, you could be at risk for developing more widespread issues with your tree.
When you’re standing on the ground, look toward the crown of the tree. If you can see leafless or dead branches, then that could be a problem. Another warning sign is thin, frail branches with few or no leaves.
