Normally, viewed as a source of shade and an example of natural beauty, a tree could also become a danger to those that share some space with that tall plant. If such a situation were to develop, then that source of danger ought to be removed.

How an inspection might confirm suspicions, with respect to the wisdom behind a given tree’s removal?

The inspector could take some bark from a twig and look at the underlying area. If it were brown and dry, then that would signal the need to remove the examined tree.

The inspector could check each tree’s base. Suppose that the same action was to result in discovery of any mushrooms or other fungi? If it were to lead to such a discovery, then that fact could be used to support an argument for the tree’s removal.

The tree removal inspector in San Jose could look for evidence of a crack in any trunk. Moreover, the inspector could check for hanging branches in any of the trees’ crowns. The inspector could study the twigs on each branch. What might be found on the ends of each twig? Do any of them have some buds on them? That would be a good sign. Buds’ presence would indicate that there was still life in the studied tree.

Why would any homeowner spend time looking for early signs of the fact that a given tree should be removed?

These actions should not have to take up a great deal of a homeowner’s time. Many of them could be completed during a stroll over the family’s yard. What effort would it require, for someone to glance at each tree’s base, in order to check for mushrooms or other fungi?

Yet, even those homeowners that might find it hard to incorporate all of the above checks into an enjoyable walk through over the property near the family’s home, should still reconsider their reluctance to adapt a different routine. The fate for any tree that could require removal is unpredictable.

It could easily topple over during a storm. Homeowners’ inability to predict storms could not be questioned. That is why cities are searching for a way to create some type of early warning signal.

Alternately, it could come down on its own. In other words, once a tree’s path towards the end of its life has become evident, the speed of travel on that same path could be fast or slow. No one can predict the length of time that might pass, before the tree’s life has ended, causing it to fall over on its own. That is why a homeowner’s routine ought to include performance of actions that reveal when a source of shade might need removal.
