Overhanging Tree Branches

Overhanging Tree Branches
21 Aug 2020

Trees are very beautiful but if they encroach or overhang the rood of your property they can become very problematic read on to learn more.


Look at the trees around your home on a yearly basis to ensure they are still alive and aren’t suffering from rot or disease. This will help you avoid dangerous scenarios, like an branch or tree crashing through a window or onto your roof.

A large tree branch can penetrate the roofing system, cause window breakage, and make it simple for animals to get into the home, and a host of other serious problems. Consider the following:

  • Tree branches leaning against the roof can scrape away the granules on asphalt shingles, greatly reducing their durability and overall lifespan.
  • Fallen leaves clog gutters and downspouts and trap moisture against the roof, which can lead to leaks, mold, and deterioration.
  • Excessive shade does not allow the roof to dry properly, causing mold and fungus growth.
  • If the tree and its branches are weak or diseased, heavy winds or a storm could cause branches or the entire tree to come crashing down onto the home.

As the damage potential is so great, one mistake in cutting may cause the entire tree or a very large branch to fall causing substantial damage to your residence. Therefore it is best to use the services of a professional trimming company!
