Every homeowner wants his garden and premises to be as tidy and good looking as possible. Sometimes, over many years, a tree starts posing an obstacle to your desired garden look. Tree maintenance is absolutely essential, but sometimes it’s simply out of your hands. Maybe you were not around, not even the first owner, or the tree is simply too old and worn to strengthen and repair.
Trees can damage fences, both yours and your neighbor’s, damage the house with branches, and in extreme situations the soil around and beneath the house may be eroded due to far-stretching tree roots. A damaged house foundation from a mere tree is possible. Let’s not forget a damaged or rotting tree can die out completely and become an unstable stump, one ready to fall and not only damage your property, but endanger your family too.
Damaged and exposed trees also attract termites and other parasitic insects, many of which will also inhabit the wooden framing of your house later and cause even more damage.
Sometimes a completely healthy tree can be the culprit of your troubles, and in this case, it’s possible to relocate it to a spot more appropriate.
