Getting To The Root of Tree Problems

There are many circumstances that warrant tree services around Southampton, PA. From blizzards to thunderstorms, there always seems to be something tampering with your yard’s lifeforms.

Sometimes, to find the ‘root’ cause of a problem, you have to start at the bottom. Roots can cause many types of damage. First, they can become invasive and hazardous to people who walk by. They can split pavement and cause uneven ground. This is extra dangerous for bikes, strollers, skaters, and joggers.

Secondly, roots can grow up against underground structures such as pipelines. This could cause severe damage and catastrophic consequences if a pipe were to break. If you suspect sewer infringement, contact a plumbing expert immediately.

Now that we touched on some problems caused by the roots; let’s work our way up the tree to the trunk. Tree trunks that become ill can also result in disaster. As the bark erodes, the foundation of the tree weakens. As the tree encounters more and more storms (and wind), it’s only a matter of time before it comes unstable. This is a huge concern because weak trees are likely to fall, and no lumberjack will be waiting to warn you with a cordial “TIIIMMMMMMBBBERRR!”
