How To Identity A Hazardous Tree:
Examine the Top of the tree
- Are there dead branches? Smaller dead branches mean loss of nutrients.
- Do Some Branches rub or cross? This type of sign causes weak spots in the tree.
- How much leaf cover does the tree have or has it lost? Loss of vegetation means a weakening tree.
Examine the trunk
- Is the trunk forked? Forks are a sign of potential weakness.
- Are their canks or disfiguration spots or are there fungal spots? Both are signs of decay.
- Does your tree lean? Growing off center is a warning sign.
- Are the roots severed? Severed cause a weakness in supporting the tree.
- Are there mushrooms at the root? This is a sign of decay.
A Checklist for Preventing Hazard Trees:
- Inspect your trees carefully several times each year and in all seasons.
- Prune trees when they are young and regularly thereafter.
- Use correct pruning methods, always making the pruning cut outside the branch collar.
- Don't allow trees to be topped!
- Always plant the right tree in the right place. For example, avoid planting large-growing trees under power lines, or too close to your house.
- Water deeply during dry periods, slowly applying at least 1" of water.
