Have a Leaning Tree?
Leaning trees should always be a cause of concern in the landscape of your property and need immediate assessment by a certified arborist experienced to determine the root system’s structural integrity. Most trees that are leaning have limbs that are uneven or too many growing on one side of the tree. Poor tree planting, planting trees in a windy corridors, root structure damage, and construction or soil heaving are causes of a leaning tree. Sometimes, natural disasters (hurricanes, ice storms, tornados) can cause tree leaning. We can straighten young leaning trees by digging up part of the root, making sure to limit any root damage, then replanting it at the correct angle. Then we stabilize it using a special brace. When your tree is stabilized, we will add the right amount of mulch, root stimulator and thoroughly water it. We also have methods for correcting large leaning trees. We can temporarily support a tree until its root system is established enough to support it alone. Evaluation by a professional arborist is the best way to deal with a leaning tree situation. We can perform a tree removal if the situation warrants it.
If you have concerns about the growing angle of your tree, please call 704-366-1134 or SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT on-line with an AAA TREE EXPERTS Arborist. We will do a complete evaluation to determine if a course of action is required. An evaluation with one of our tree care consultants is FREE OF CHARGE.
