Trees are beautiful creations of nature that are not only fundamental to our ecosystem, but also a subtle reminder that we are a part of nature and not some machine. There are dozens of benefits of trees, along with thousands of products they provide us with. But there are also some associated dangers that often go overlooked, and living in a coastal town that is prone to major storms, we need to be aware of the hazards.
Hazard trees are the trees that pose some risk to humans and their surroundings. Dangers of hazard trees could present themselves in many ways, but the most common ones are dead trees that can become missiles on a moment’s notice. For this reason, it is always best to be proactive in our approach to keeping things under control.
Dead trees are simply a structure of wood and leaves, with no life in them. As such, the branches and other parts may become brittle and fall down abruptly. If you are the victim of a falling tree part, the injuries could vary from minor bruises to fatal injury. Apart from this, dead trees can fall down on houses and damage properties, or fall on power lines and disrupt the power supply. Dead trees falling on the road can also result in accidents as well. So all of these possibilities must be taken very seriously!
Furthermore, dead trees are an invitation for decay and manifestation of diseases. These diseases can easily spread to other trees or plants and may even impact your health. In no time, your entire lawn or garden could face decay. So if you are not diligent and active to stay on top of your trees, then one tree can have a very detrimental effect on your entire landscape if not properly maintained.
It is always better to identify the dangers of hazard tress and take appropriate measures to avoid any loss of both health and property. If you need help identifying a potential hazard tree, call New Smyrna Tree Pros at 386-20o-4288 for a free assessment.
