When Should A Tree Be Removed?
• Evidence of root or stem decay.
• Splits, cracks, hollows.
• Included bark or weak crotches.
• Excessive deadwood.
• Exhibiting signs of decline.
• Encroachment on homes or structures.
• Damage from storms causing hazardous conditions.
• Devastating lightning strike.
• Undesirable species, characteristics, location.
Well executed planting projects start with appropriate design, site evaluation and tree selection. Site conditions and after care capabilities should dictate maximum tree size at planting, root ball characteristics, and suitable tree production method. Tree selection includes choosing appropriate species for the planting site based on site evaluation. The nursery stock must be inspected carefully to pick the best quality tree. Many trees are planted too deeply so they perform poorly following planting. Management of the landscape site in the early years following planting will also dramatically affect establishment rate and success of the planting.
