Professional Tree Removal Northern VA, MD, and DC

JL Tree Service specializes in providing outstanding tree removal services in Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, and Washington DC. When we assess our customer’s trees, we share the common goal of caring for healthy trees. We do not like to recommend taking a tree down unless it is absolutely necessary. If a tree is dead, in decline, or is an imminent threat to people or nearby structures such as a house, we will surely recommend eradication. Our arborists provide excellent tree assessments, and offer the great advice.

Tree Assessment by our Certified Arborists?

When a tree goes into decline, it can become a hazardous situation rather quickly. Trees that are in close proximity to people and structures can pose a serious threat – especially in a wind storm. Hazardous trees that endanger people or structures will be subject to tree removal. Not to say most trees in close proximity should be cut down because that is certainly not the case. Many trees are actually just fine, even when they are close to a house. Some warning signs to look for:

  • Hazardous trees with signs of decay in their trunks or roots
  • Potential uprooting trees could have a mound around the trunk area
  • Trees with a heavy lean towards a structure or heavy traffic area
  • Dead, diseased, or dying crown of the tree
  • Stand back and look at the entire tree, the trunk’s bark can offer a lot of information. Check for cracks, splits, or discoloration
  • Usually, problems are below the ground, but there are signs to look for above in the trunk and tree canopy

There are many potential factors that can cause a tree to go into decline. Usually, it is an abiotic condition that puts a tree in distress, such as environmental issues like temperature extremes or drought. Other biotic conditions, such as insect or fungal diseases can also cause harm, however, these are mostly secondary issues. It is highly recommended to have your trees evaluated annually to see if the tree removal service MD residents rely on should be contacted.
