Hazardous Removals

Whatever the case may be, an unhealthy or damaged tree can cause serious problems for any Florida  homeowner. Prompt, swift action must be taken to prevent a potentially dangerous situation from happening. Below are some common symptoms to look out for that may indicate a hazardous tree.


Poor StructureLeaning or an odd shape caused by an unnatural growth pattern can indicate potential failure. Severe storms and improper pruning techniques can also cause the structure of a tree to become compromised.
DecayA tree can fail due to root rot and decay. While hard to diagnose without the help of a certified arborist, signs to look out for include mushrooms, cavities, insect damage, dead branches and soft, breakable wood.
Weak UnionsWhen two branches of equal or lesser size originate from the same union, they are often weaker and more prone to splitting. Deep cracks, that extend deep or completely through the trunk may indicate structural failure resulting in the removal of the entire tree.
CankersStress or infections can result in cankers. Cankers that take up more than half of a tree’s circumference may warrant the removal a hazardous tree removal.
DeadwoodBroken branches or sections of a tree that are dead is considered deadwood. Deadwood can be especially dangerous because it can fall unexpectedly and cause extensive harm or damage.

Florida sees its share of heavy rains, high winds and hard-hitting storms, all of which can put your home, business and property in danger of fallen limbs and damaged or even fallen trees. 

Most damage to a property during severe weather occurs when limbs or trees fall. High winds and saturated soil conditions typical of summer storms can cause tree roots to fail and branches to weaken. Up North, during winter, the weight of ice and snow accumulation can be equally damaging, resulting in failure of branches and entire trees.

In many cases, hazards are not always obvious to the untrained eye and correcting them can be a dangerous job. While it is impossible to totally protect your trees and property from severe storms, Global Tree Care LLC can inspect for issues that could predispose trees to failure. This could include a climbing inspection or an analysis of decay that may be present in the branches, stems, or roots.

Treatment recommendations on storm damaged trees will depend on the type and extent of damage, plant health, species considerations, and potential for a reoccurrence of failure. Even if you routinely care for your trees, when a severe storm hits, be sure to have our arborist review your property for any issues resulting from the weather.
