It’s true that a leaning tree can be a concern for property owners, but not all leaning trees are dangerous. Whether a leaning tree is dangerous or not depends on the severity of the tree’s lean, the condition of the tree, and what is causing it to lean.
A naturally leaning tree with healthy roots may not be a cause for concern, but if your tree is leaning at a substantial angle, it may be a good idea to have it removed from your property because it might be in danger of falling. However, a tree that begins to lean after a storm points to something more serious and the safest option may be removal. Also, leaning trees with substantial cracks on the main trunk will need to be removed.
When you spot a leaning tree on your property, the last thing you want to do is ignore it. It’s advisable to call an arborist and have your tree inspected to determine if it’s really dangerous or if it’s not a cause for concern.
Why Do Trees Lean?
If you have a leaning tree on your property that’s indicative of structural issues, you need to call a reliable arborist to assess the stability of the tree and determine the right mitigation steps.
