Problems Trees Can Cause in Your Garden

By: Rodney Melvin

Having some big trees in your garden is a great way to improve the look of your garden and to do your bit for the local environment as you provide a home for little furry critters and spread seeds and produce more oxygen. At the same time trees can also make an ideal place for kids to play and climb and to build tree houses and all of this makes them brilliant additions to any home.

However this is only true under the right circumstances, and actually there are situations unfortunately where trees can become more hassle than they're worth and begin to cause problems. Here we will look at some of the issues that come about when you have trees that are too big and unruly and when you don't maintain them properly. The following is why you need to use pruning companies, tree surgeons and removal services from time to time.

They Can Damage Your Property

Believe it or not trees can cause considerable damage to your property. This is a problem first and foremost if the roots of the tree should start to encroach where they aren't wanted. For instance if the roots should start to grow under your fence or under your house, then this can start to push up either of them and cause cracks in the floor or holes in the fence. This can be very expensive.

At the same time of course, if your tree is very big and heavy and has seen better days, then it can even risk falling over which can cause considerable damage and even injury. It's very important then that you keep a watchful eye on your tree, and that you have it removed sooner rather than later when it starts to cause problems.

They Can Damage Your Neighbors' Property

More to the point though a tree can also cause damage to your neighbors property, or just cause problems for them if the branches start to grow into the windows, or if the roots start to damage their patio. Be neighborly and considerate and make sure you don't let it get to this point.

The View

Trees can be something of an eyesore if they grow too large and spread out too wide and this can be a very big problem if the tree starts to block the light coming into your living room, or your balcony's sea view. At the same time it can once again also be a problem for neighbors leading to arguments unless you think ahead.

They Are Tempting to Climb

Having a tree to climb is a boon for any adventurous young kid, and especially if their adventurous old Dad installs a tree house and a rope ladder/swing for them to play on as well. However this can be dangerous if the tree gets too big and the branches are week and you are better off removing these higher branches from temptation. Furthermore a tree can provide a way in from trespasser if they can use branches extending over your fence to climb in.
