Visible Roots

In many cases, visible roots are perfectly normal but where they are higher than normal, this causes a question of concern. Signs of outstanding visible roots may suggest that your tree is becoming unstable and is struggling to find a secure position. Although this may not seem like it’s an immediate concern, tree(s) that lack a solid foundation are extremely vulnerable to storms and extreme weather conditions that are often unpredictable in the UK. If you have noticed visible root and your tree(s) look unsturdy, we urge you to get in touch with us today.

Tree(s) Leaning

Of course, it’s very normal for tree(s) to lean when it’s windy or when fighting against challenging weather conditions. However, if your tree(s) are leaning even in completely still conditions, this may be a sign that your tree is unsafe and may need removing by our expert tree surgeons. Leaning trees are another clear sign that your tree isn’t secure in it roots. Leaning trees can present great dangers especially and pose an increased risk of falling at any time. This can cause havoc to nearby pedestrians, vehicles, and buildings.

Dead Or Diseased Branches

Have you noticed that your tree(s) are not looking healthy? If so, this may be a sign of dead or diseased branches. Unfortunately, diseased and decayed branches can often spread rapidly to other parts of your tree(s). One of the number one signs that branches are decayed or diseased is when you spot leaf discolouration or bark abnormalities. Our team at C&H Tree Surgery will assess if your branches and your tree(s) can be effectively pruned before deciding to remove permanently. However, in some cases, there is no viable option but to remove.
