Here are a few reasons it could be time to think about calling a tree service in Jefferson to assess whether tree removal is necessary your property:

  • Rotting Trees – A decaying tree has serious damage, whether it’s from rodents and pests, disease, old age or another cause. It should be removed from the property before it can infect surrounding trees or collapse on a nearby structure.
  • Safety & Visibility – Lower limbs can be removed in order to make the area under the tree safer or to create a better view.

  • Power or Phone Lines – Tall trees interfere with power lines and pose a danger for falling. Sometimes the phone or electrical company may require these trees to be removed, or you can proactively have trees removed to be safe.
