The Enemies of Your Oak
Oaks are strong, and they can be huge; reaching up to 70 feet in height and nine feet in diameter. The branches can expand up to 135 feet. Despite the strength, these trees aren’t invincible. Neglect and diseases can wreak havoc on their health and shorten their life.
Pests can spin pad-like structures on trunks and branches. They can structurally weaken a tree. Common oak pests are gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar), scarlet oak sawfly (Caliroa quercus coccinea), and lace bugs (Corythucha ciliate).
Trees can fall ill. In fact, a disease called Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora ramorum) is a primary cause of oaks dying in the Bay Area. Other diseases to strike oaks include anthracnose, leaf blister, and root rot.
Oaks are living beings. From an acorn in the ground, they grow into adulthood and eventually die. Their needs change according to their age. It’s essential to provide them with what they need to sustain their growth and maintain their health.

Tree removal services could save your property from serious harm in many ways. Make sure you get in touch with a local tree expert if your tree has become a risk, a hazard, or a severe inconvenience. Here are some ways in which removing a tree can save your property.
One of the critical considerations to make when you are looking to choose a tree removal service is the time of year you opt to get your tree removed. Now, if you have a pressing reason to want the tree gone, this is going to impact when you might choose to get in touch with removal experts. However, if you can take a measured approach, the best time to do this would be the winter. In the winter months, the trees are bare, and this makes it easier to remove them more efficiently.
