Need Tree Removal in Lafayette?

Sometimes it can be difficult to know if a tree can be salvaged or if a complete removal is necessary. The following signs can give you an idea of whether or not you require a tree removal service.

Inspect the tree for visual signs of abnormalities. The following signs are warnings of unhealthiness:

  1. Excess of Insects
  2. Growth on the Branches
  3. Distortion of leaf size, color, or shape
  4. Holes in the bark, branches, or leaves
  5. Sap oozing out of the trunk or bark
  6. Lack of fruit, flowers, or leaves

Be sure to check out our guide on the most common tree problems we experience here in Louisiana.


Inspect the trunk for signs of damage. Any cracks, dead branches, or visible wounds can suggest that a tree might be dying. Assess if more than 25% of the trunk is damaged. Oftentimes, less than 25% means that the tree can heal itself for a full recovery.


Hollowing out of the tree is a definite sign of decline or death. If more than one-third of the tree is hollow, the tree’s structure could be compromised and is in danger of falling. Hollowed-out trees need to be removed.


Trees generally grow vertically in a more or less straight line. If the tree is visibly leaning to one side, it may be a sign of damage to or a weakening of the root system. If it’s leaning more than approximately 15 degrees, it should be removed quickly.


Check the base of the tree for any abnormalities. Do the roots look damaged or decayed? If they do, then the tree might have lost some structural support and need removal. Additionally, check where the tree and the ground meet. Is there any space? If there is, it may indicate that the tree is beginning to lean. And finally, if you see any fungus or sawdust at the base of the tree, it might mean that it is becoming rotten or being eaten by insects.


If a tree is very close to a home or shed, you may want to consider removing it. If branches shed and fall or it becomes overgrown, it can cause damage. Branches can even try to grow into windows and doors!
