Deadwood also threatens the health of the tree. Eliminating deadwood protects your trees against disease, insect infestation and long term decay that could lead to a dead tree. Dead trees are unsightly, unsafe and typically more expensive to remove.
Deadwood provides essential habitats and its management should aim to leave as much as possible, shortening or removing only those that pose a risk. Durability and retention of deadwood will vary by tree species.
If you are concerned about the state of your trees, Big Heart Tree Care can schedule a consultation and provide an estimate. Don’t let your deadwood go unnoticed, be proactive and call us today.
