Do You Need Tree Removal? How to Detect Dead Trees Cumming , GA
Tree removal

As the spring season reaches its peak, your landscape has likely come alive with vibrant colors. When it comes to your trees, you should notice a fullness of green and healthy leaves. But what about that one bare tree that refused to show its beauty this spring. Knowing if you have a dead tree on your property is important for several reasons. Dead trees are a serious hazard to your home, your family and the surrounding environment, and they need to be removed.

Things to Look For

Identifying a dead tree is not always an easy task, especially if you have to detect a dead tree in the winter months. However, there are several telltale signs that a tree is dead or dying. While a landscaping expert can tell you for certain whether a tree is dead or alive, here are some visual warning signs that you have a dead tree that needs removal:

  • Fungus Growth
  • Tree Trunk Damage
  • Bare Branches
  • Damaged Roots (leaning tree)

Another way to evaluate the vitality of tree is to perform a scratch test. Use a small knife to scratch the outside of a few branches. If the inside is consistently green and moist, the tree is considered healthy.

The Danger of Dead Trees

Aside from being an eyesore on your lush spring landscape, a dead tree can be a serious risk to the people that occupy and visit your property. A dead tree is not stable. A gust of high winds or strong spring storm can cause the tree to fall in an unpredictable way. Your home construction, hardscapes, vehicles, power lines and neighbor’s property can be in harm’s way. Dead trees are a major liability! Therefore, it is imperative that you schedule tree removal for a dead tree sooner rather than later.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
