If a tree is growing too close to your home, it could pose a threat that you are completely unaware of. Tree roots can stretch much further than the tree itself. A tree that grows close to your property could have roots that can damage the stability of your home’s foundations. For example, if you have paving you may notice cracks in the pavement where roots are underground. Roots can also cause sewage blockages, rupturing pipes causing problems with sewage leaking around your property, which is obviously extremely unpleasant.


Additionally, a tree that is not stable or is leaning dangerously could collapse and cause damage to property and even endanger life. Earlier this year, Storm Ali battered the UK and caused damage to scores of trees. One man lost his life due to a falling tree. If you have a tree that has been damaged by a storm, it may pose a risk to you, your property and anyone in the nearby area and therefore need to be cut down.


Taking Up Valuable Space


While trees are often a beautiful addition to a property, providing greenery and shade, they also take up a great deal of space. You may find that you wish to use your land for something that requires the removal of a particular tree. For example, building an extension, installing a driveway or planting a vegetable patch. Removing the tree will free up space for you to pursue your desired projects.


Dead or Diseased Trees


If a tree is diseased or has died, it might be wise to remove it. Removing a diseased tree, providing it cannot be cured, can help prevent the spread of the disease to other trees on the property or in your area. Dead trees can also be extremely unstable, posing a risk to anyone using your garden and ultimately to your home.


Blocking Your View


You might find that a tree on your property is blocking your view out of your garden. If you wish to better enjoy the view, cutting down the tree can help achieve this.


Prevent Overcrowding


Felling a tree can also allow the other trees on the property more space and resources to grow, which is especially important if those trees are in better condition and are healthier than the tree that is to be cut down.


It is important to remember that it is illegal to fell trees without a licence, unless an exemption applies. At Cheltenham Tree Services, we can assist you in applying for a licence and in navigating any legal requirements before having a tree on your property felled.
