Removal of Dangerous Trees
Trees can prove dangerous in an urban environment. Falling branches or deadwood can causes injury and death if a tree is not properly maintained in areas where there is regular foot traffic, such as in schools and on walkways.
To ensure that your tree is not a threat to the health and safety of your family, think about hiring an arborist asap. They will assess the state of the tree, and identify any potential hazards that may need to be attended to.
After a detailed assessment, it may be necessary to remove some branches that pose a threat, or to completely remove the tree.

Most common tree defects
Weak branch union
This is basically the poor attachment of branch to stem. It can be cause by a species trait; mechanical damage such as from a storm or poor pruning practices.
Any dead tree that is in a high foot traffic area needs to be removed ASAP. Once a tree is dead the root system that holds it upright, the roots, being to rot. Once they have rotted through the tree will topple over causing injury or death.
The cause of a tree death can be hard to pinpoint. Most of the time in an urban environment it is cause by a change of surrounding and the tree cannot adapt fast enough.
The most common cause is the sealing the ground around the tree, reducing its air and water supply.
This will normally occur when there has been a sustained period of wet weather followed by some strong winds.
The water softens the soil and the wind moves the tree on an angle. It is easy to spot with a large bulge showing around the base.
There is no cure for this other than to remove the tree.
If it is a tree of significance the council my want to save it, but bracing the tree. This is rare and probably would not include a tree on private property.
In most cases this will be co-dominant stems or main leaders that have grown close together and have now begun to split.
This is a very common defect and is best attended to at the earliest time in a trees development. As the tree begins to grow, the issues gets worse.
At the very least one of the leaders needs to be removed. If it is allowed to go on too long then you may have to remove the whole tree.
Cavities and openings.
Issue: Basal cavity at ground level and extending up the trunk with notable thickening and in-rolling of wound edges.
Cause: Possibly initial wounding caused by impacts from machinery (e.g. lawn mowers, grass trimmers, etc.).
Advice: If the tree is in close proximity to buildings or gathering places, consider removal. If in doubt about tree risk, consult an AQF5 arboriculturalist.
Fungi in roots and stems
Issue: Tree > 40–45 degree lean. Cause: Proximity to buildings preventing overhead sunlight from reaching tree.
Advices: The tree should be removed as it is in a High-use area.
Other than the section on crack above, there are 2 other common issues;
If a tree is planted poorly or in a poor location it can develop a lean. This is different to lifting roots, this is the tree actually growing on that angle to find light.
Any tree that has its main leader on an angle of 45 degrees or more, it is recommended that it is removed. The chances of it falling are increased as it grows as the weight on the end compounds over time.
this is more common on some species than others, but you should never allow branches of a tree to be crossing each other especially if they are directly toughing.
In the wind the trees branches will rub each other causing the structure to fail.
If left unchecked it will only get worse.
It is advised that the offending branches are removed.
