Is My Tree Dead?

Are you noticing an increase in dead branches in your yard? Maybe even a leaning tree trunk that is ripped? These are all telltale signs that your tree is in the process of dying or is unfortunately already dead. Cutting down a tree is no easy decision as it is a financial commitment but in other cases, trees hold sentimental value and it may be emotional to remove it. Unfortunately, dying trees are extremely dangerous. According to OSHA, they are more dangerous than sharks, as people every year face the problem of falling dead trees in their homes. In order to protect you and your home or property, the industry experts at Mass Bay Tree have compiled a list of the top signs to look out for if you think your tree is dying.

To prevent any injury to you or your property, it is best to think about removing the tree, as it is already dead.
