Trees provide shade, improve our air quality, and provide a habit for our wildlife, so how could they be dangerous? Well, it helps to think of them like Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy. He’s a cute and seemingly innocent addition to the team until he puts his mind to it. Then he’s a force to be reckoned with. Under the right conditions, the trees on your property can do the same — albeit with less intergalactic weaponry.
What are these conditions? There’s no one answer. It could be a termite colony that’s upset the integrity of the oak in front of your house, or it could be strong winds that have snapped a branch that’s threatening to drop on the parked car in your driveway. Disease could infect its limbs, trunk, or root system and leave it ill-equipped for Edmonton’s mercurial weather patterns.
The ‘what’ doesn’t matter as much as the how you’ll fix it before it does any damage to your home, surrounding property, or family. While you might be tempted to remove these dangerous trees by yourself, it’s not in your best interest to do so. This task includes climbing to incredible heights and using industrial equipment capable of felling fully grown trees. Without experience, handling the rigging and blades involved is incredibly dangerous.
We only need to look towards the Tree Care Industry Association’s (TICA) 2012 study to understand why. More than half of the reported tree maintenance accidents resulted in death!
