  • Do you see detached branches?
  • Are there cavities or rotten wood along the trunk or within major branches?
  • Are there mushrooms and conks at the base of the tree or elsewhere throughout the tree?
  • Do you see cracks or splits in the trunk or where branches attach?
  • Have branches fallen from the tree?
  • Have nearby trees fallen or died?
  • Is the trunk leaning?
  • Are there many branches coming from one spot on the trunk?
  • Is there damage to the root system from digging, trenching, sidewalk repair, etc.?
  • Has there been recent construction, changes in the soil level or landscape installations?
  • Are the leaves an unusual colour or size?
  • Have trees in the area been removed?
  • Has the tree been heavily pruned or topped?

Managing Hazardous Trees

Our ISA-Certified Arborist at Campbell Tree Experts Inc. will help manage your property and provide solutions to reduce risk while protecting the health of your trees. We may suggest one or more of the following options:

  • Remove the target
  • Pruning – removal of the decayed or damaged branches. Keep in mind that improper pruning can weaken the tree. You should use professionals like those at Campbell Tree Experts Inc.
  • Cabling and bracing – provides support for weak branches and stems, increasing strength and stability
  • Routine care – your trees need routine care such as water, fertilizer (in some cases), mulch and pruning (as dictated by the season and your tree’s structure
  • Removal – this may be the only option for a hazardous tree that poses a threat to people and property. Campbell Tree Experts Inc. suggest planting a tree as a replacement in an appropriate area

Being able to recognize tree hazards will not only enhance the safety of your property and that of your neighbours, but may also improve your tree’s health and longevity!
