3 Reasons Why You Need To Remove A Dead Or Dying Tree From Your Yard Sooner Rather Than Later

Construction & Contractors Blog

Is there a tree in your yard that doesn't look as good as it used to? If you suspect you have a dying tree (or one that's already dead) on your property, time is of the essence. While it might not seem like that big of a deal at first glance, a dead or dying tree can actually attract other problems that are definitely reason for concern. Here are 3 reasons why you should remove a dead or dying tree from your yard as soon as possible.

Keep Unwanted Visitors Away

A dead tree is like a beacon for all kinds of things that you don't want making a home on your property. Dead trees attract things like termites, mice, birds and other pests. Once some of these critters have established themselves in your yard, it probably won't be long before they start branching out to see what else they can conquer. Removing a dead tree won't just protect your yard, it could also help prevent some of the same unwanted guests from moving into your home.

It Might Be Contagious

If your property has more than one tree or some kind of garden or other landscaping, you have yet another reason to take care of a dying tree as soon as possible. Some tree diseases are easily spread and can travel through the roots in the ground into other trees or areas that you definitely don't want the disease to go. If you don't take care of a dying tree quickly, you could end up having to get multiple trees removed by the time it's all said and done.

Dying Trees Are Dangerous

As a tree reaches the end of its life, it will begin to weaken. This includes everything from the trunk to the various branches. Depending on where the tree is located on your property, this could pose a significant threat to your house or to innocent people who just happen to be walking by on the nearby sidewalk. All it takes is one strong gust of wind and a branch could go flying or the entire tree could topple. Don't put your family, neighbors, pets or property at risk of injury or damage.

Dead trees aren't just a dangerous safety hazard, they can also attract unwanted pests to your property and even spread the problem to other trees or landscaping. If you have a dead or dying tree on your property, contact a local tree service for removal as soon as possible.

Pool House Parties: Building Your Backyard Escape

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
