Need a dangerous tree removed in Cleveland Heights? The tall, woodsy areas of Cleveland Heights that are sprinkled among your beautiful homes are a staple of the neighborhood which is just one reason why we should keep an eye out for any dangerous trees.
One can never tell when a tree is going to become dangerous and fall. It can happen to strong, healthy, diseased, infected, and weak trees alike. Let’s go over some indicators starting at the top of the tree down to the bottom.
Your first thought about a potentially dangerous tree might be weather-related. Too much water can cause flooding around the base of the tree, lifting the soil so that there is nothing for the tree’s roots to grip. Inversely, too little water can cause a drought. Look at the canopy, the branches and leafy part of your tree. Can you see through the leaves and branches? When the leaves are too dense it acts as a buffer… if a strong wind comes through, it could topple the tree. A dense canopy can also prevent the necessary amount of sunlight to seep through and nourish the tree.
Is your tree split into a wide “Y” shape? In the case that a strong crosswind passes by your property, one of those Y branches could easily be twisted enough to leave it hanging or to detach. A strong branch-to-trunk connection looks like a large U shape and weak connections look like a V.
Lastly, take a look at the base and roots of your tree. Find any large crack in in the dirt around your tree? This could be a sign of a leaning tree. If your tree is leaning, even slightly with these dirt cracks present, a storm or flooding can uproot the tree with less resistance.

I had a lot of tree trimming done and removals and I barely noticed the crew was at our house. They did their work quickly without interfering and cleaned up very nicely.
