What is a Hazardous Tree?
Hazardous trees—also called “danger trees”—are trees that pose an imminent or immediate risk to people, infrastructure, buildings, and other property. Trees provide many benefits but can grow very large and tall, and deteriorate over time. Any property owner should keep an eye on their trees, and those in close proximity, for signs of danger.
When Does a Tree Become Hazardous?
There are a number of circumstances under which a tree may become dangerous:
Power line interference. Trees growing too close to power lines have the potential to cause power interruptions or outages when branches contact overhead lines. Furthermore, sparking or arcing from a power line to a tree branch can cause a fire—and trees, thanks in part to their high water content, are electrically conductive, putting people at risk of serious injury or death by electrocution. Never climb or prune a tree that is close to or making contact with power lines.
Structural damage. Trees can develop structural weaknesses that over time may cause some or all of the tree to collapse. Internal decay of the trunk or major branches, tree cankers, damaged or rotten roots, and weakened forks at the trunk or between large branches all increase the likelihood of a tree becoming hazardous.
Orientation. Trees do not always grow perfectly straight, but a lean of 15 or more degrees from vertical should be considered hazardous, as a leaning tree is more likely to collapse. Trees that grew tall with a lean do not pose as great a risk as those that were once straight and later began to lean—though should still be monitored.
Insects, drought and disease. Pests, persistently dry conditions, and disease can all contribute to a tree’s degradation, causing physical damage, and limiting a tree’s ability to transport nutrients and sustain itself.
How Are Hazardous Trees Addressed?
Dangerous trees require the expert care of a qualified tree service professional. It all starts with a careful inspection and assessment of the tree or trees in question. If a tree is deemed hazardous, the appropriate action is taken. Trees may be pruned—if the damage is contained to a limited area—cabled (using high-strength cables to guide growth or support parts of a tree), or removed entirely.
