Scheduling a tree risk assessment with Hillview Tree Service of Naugatuck is important for the safety of your property and those who live or work there. Tree risk assessments are conducted by Hillview Tree Service who can evaluate the health and stability of your trees. Here are five signs that it’s time to schedule a tree risk assessment for your Naugatuck area property:

  1. Visible Signs of Damage or Decay: If you notice visible signs of damage, decay, or decline in a tree, it’s a clear indication that a risk assessment is needed. Signs of concern include:
    • Dead or hanging branches.
    • Fungus or mushrooms growing on the trunk or branches.
    • Cracks, cavities, or splits in the tree’s structure.
    • Bark peeling or falling off.
    • Leaning or tilting trees.
  2. Proximity to Structures or High-Traffic Areas: Trees that are located near structures like homes, garages, or pathways pose a higher risk if they become unstable or fall. Trees close to high-traffic areas where people congregate are also a concern. If a tree poses a risk to property or personal safety, a risk assessment is crucial.
  3. Recent Severe Weather Events: Severe weather events, such as storms, hurricanes, or heavy snowfall, can weaken trees and make them more susceptible to falling. If your area has recently experienced extreme weather, it’s a good time to have your trees assessed for damage and stability.
  4. Changes in Tree Health or Growth Patterns: If you notice significant changes in a tree’s health or growth patterns, it may be a sign of an underlying issue. This can include:
    • Sparse foliage or leaf loss.
    • Unusual insect infestations.
    • Slow growth or stunted branches.
    • Unexplained dieback in certain areas of the tree.
  5. Age and Species Considerations: Some tree species have shorter lifespans and are more prone to certain issues as they age. Old or mature trees may need more frequent assessments, as their risk factors increase over time.

A professional tree risk assessment by Hillview Tree Service will evaluate the overall health of the tree, its structural integrity, and its potential for causing harm or damage. Based on the assessment, we may recommend actions such as pruning, cabling and bracing, or in some cases, tree removal if the risk is too high.

Regular tree risk assessments, especially for older or large trees, are an essential part of responsible Naugatuck tree maintenance. They help identify potential issues before they become dangerous, protecting both your property and the safety of those around. Hillview Tree Services can conduct a thorough assessment and determine the appropriate course of action.
