Your trees provide you with oxygen, shade, and more! However, like all living things, trees fall victim to the effects of aging, pests, and disease. At Lumber Jack and Jill we work with homeowners and property managers to provide the tree services you need. Our team loves the Front Range area, and it’s our goal to help you learn when it’s time to hire a professional for your trees.

Exposed or Invasive Roots

EXPOSED OR INVASIVE ROOTS

Sewer lines draw in hungry tree roots looking for water and nutrients. These roots enter and clog your sewer lines causing floods. When roots go searching for sewer lines, you’ll often see exposed roots in your yard. During yard maintenance, you can hit those exposed roots, weakening the tree. If you notice your tree leaning to the side, along with exposed or invasive roots, it’s time to call Lumber Jack and Jill!

Fungal Growth or Insects

FUNGAL GROWTH OR INSECTS

It’s important to keep an eye on your trees for any signs of fungus or insects. These signs would be leaf blisters, brown spots, laurel wilt, and more. Insects thrive off of plant life. However, some species of insects will kill your trees from the inside out. If you notice insects living on the bark or leaves of your tree, call Lumber Jack and Jill today!

Branches Close to Electricity

BRANCHES CLOSE TO ELECTRICITY

It’s essential to call Lumber Jack and Jill as soon as you notice your tree branches within a couple of feet of the powerline. Electricity surges, especially during lightning storms. This means electricity can arc from the power line to the tree and anyone touching the tree or ground could potentially be shocked. Call a professional to handle your tree branches to ensure everyone’s safety.

Hollow or Neglected Tree Trunks

HOLLOW OR NEGLECTED TREE TRUNKS

As trees age, branches can hollow from the inside out and fall. If the hollowed trunks or branches aren’t cleared in time, they may hurt a person or animal. Not to mention, a severe storm could easily drop dead branches on your home or property. When you’ve acquired a new property, it’s vital to have a professional from Lumber Jack and Jill inspect your new trees.
