We’re fully licensed and insured so you know you can trust our experience and credentials to be on your side when it matters most. We offer emergency tree removal services 24/7 and free estimates to all customers in the Little Rock area.

How to Spot a Dangerous Tree

Step 1: Inspect tree trunk and low-hanging branches – Take note of fungi growth, such as mushrooms, at the base of a tree as well as hollow cavities. Both of these are signs that the tree is decaying and the foundational structure of it is weakened, meaning the tree will be more likely to fall and injure people or damage property.

Step 2: Identify lightning strikes – If a long streak of bark is missing from the tree trunk, that could be a sign it was struck and damaged by lightning. A tree that is damaged on one side is likely to recover, but if there are multiple areas of missing bark, the tree may be damaged beyond repair and taking it down is a safe alternative.

Step 3: Examine tree branches – Getting up close and looking thoroughly at tree branches will help you identify branches that need to be removed or taken down. If the tree is in its flowering season, typically around springtime, and the branches are not producing leaves or flowers, there is a good sign the tree’s health is poor. The absence of tree bark on the branches can also be a sign the tree may become a hazard because missing tree bark can expose a tree to disease and decay.

Step 4: Pay special attention to two-trunk trees – If the trunk of a tree splits and grows into two separate sections, it is important to examine the point where they meet to determine if the tree is structurally sound or if tree removal is in its future. A U-shaped connection does not typically pose a problem, but a V-shaped connection can easily become unstable and cause the tree to become too top-heavy or unbalanced.

Cabling and bracing can help a tree that has two trunks and seems to have become unstable, but it is not recommended homeowners take this on themselves. An experienced and certified arborist like those at Capital City Tree Service can help! And if the tree really does pose a problem, our skilled team can remove it.
