“A tree is our most intimate contact with nature”- George Nakashima.
Trees are sanctuaries for some, preachers for others, majestic examples of strength for some, and babies for others who need perfect care. Taking care of a tree can be challenging in times of an emergency. Especially when you are facing a limited time window, i.e., the tree fell on your vehicle, blocked your driveway, or broke your fence post. The damage may also be irreversible in case life is lost.
Depending on where you live, trees might fall on a less frequent basis, but if you are in the Portland area, the chance is higher in winter. Therefore, if this happens, you need help from an emergency service. Unless someone is trapped under a tree, an emergency involving a tree will not require police assistance. So, instead of calling the police, contact tree removal service in Portland, Oregon.
Deciding if you need emergency tree service is not always easy. It can be hard to determine whether a tree is normally leaning or is dangerous for your house and surroundings. Here we have discussed a few instances which require tree emergency services.
When a broken branch or damaged tree falls on your house or another structure branch you may have to call an emergency tree service.
The reason for every emergency may not always be safety-related. There could be a limited amount of time in which you can remove an unsightly tree when renting out or selling your home. Contact the emergency tree service to make sure the tree is removed on time.
Despite appearing healthy on the surface, a tree could be weak inside and in danger of falling. Few warning signs to look out for are dead or falling branches, hollowed trunks, deep cracks, and missing bark.
Trees must only be removed if an arborist determines that it is essential. In some cases, a tree can survive even after half of its canopy has been damaged. By hiring a tree service on a regular basis, you can ensure the health of your trees.
Sometimes the damage may be invisible; a heavy storm might saturate the roots and weaken a tree from within. Even if the damaged tree or branch appears stable, it may still pose a danger to your family and property.
To prevent storm damage to trees, it is best to get a tree service to remove dead, weak, or dry branches and allow the wind to easily pass through them.
Preventing Tree Emergencies
Avoid having to deal with tree emergencies later by taking the necessary precautions. Moreover, some insurance policies require you to maintain your trees to stay covered. Visits by arborists can reveal a lot about the health of your trees and their potential hazards. A professional arborist will look for several things, like crown overgrowth, dead and rotting branches, mold infestation, and insect infestation.
Tree service providers scrutinize the emergency and care of trees and shrubs. The arborist performs the following actions:
- Tree Trimming: It is essential as it gives shape to a tree. Trim branches that are weak but do not trim a branch too closely. The ratio of living crown to tree length should be two-third.
- Tree cabling: It plays a vital role in guiding tree growth in the right direction. High-strength cables are used to hold a tree branch in place to help support weak branches.
- Stump Removal: Stumps often become home to termites and carpenter ants. They can eat away other plant life and even cause structural damage to your home. Stump grinding is the best approach to get rid of this problem.
- Fruit tree pruning: It must be done once a year during winter. If fruit trees are not pruned properly, most people end up with scraggly overgrown shrubs rather than the Garden of Eden they imagined. So the key to keeping fruit trees attractive and productive is annual pruning.

Henceforth trees are part and parcel of earthly life.
