When you look at your landscape, you may like all the trees that you see. But, this does not mean that every tree on your property is worth keeping because one of them may cause problems. A front yard tree may improve curb appeal, but you should know when to consider its removal.

1. Driveway

A mature tree that does not have invasive roots will not likely any cause problems with your driveway if it has not already done so. But, your front yard tree may still be growing, and if it is happening at a rapid rate, your driveway may be in danger of sustaining noticeable damage.

While a minor driveway crack should not be too difficult to repair, the cost for this service may cost more than tree removal, which means you can save money by removing the tree. If you are unsure whether the tree's roots will eventually reach the driveway, you can find a reliable answer by hiring a tree service company to perform a thorough inspection and reach a conclusion.

2. Sidewalk

Like the driveway, you do not want your tree to cause any damage to the sidewalk. Even if your city will cover some of the sidewalk repair costs, you should avoid this problem altogether. This is when you will also want to rely on a tree inspection to determine if it is a legitimate concern.

A crack in the sidewalk can make it more dangerous for pedestrians because the raised and uneven surface may lead to tripping when someone walks by without paying attention.

3. Debris

Although you may like how the tree looks for most of the year, you may know that it comes with a lot of debris cleanup with its leaves, seeds, and flowers. You may decide that there is too much debris that needs to be cleaned up throughout the year for it to be worth keeping. After you get tree removal, you can plant a new tree that will not require constant cleanup in the yard.

4. View

When you look out the windows of your home, you may notice that the tree blocks the best part of your view. If the tree is still growing, this may only get worse with time. If you want to see the beautiful sunset from your front side windows, tree removal may be the only option.

Investing in tree removal for a front yard tree is a smart move for certain problems.
