Weakened Trees are A Danger to Your Overland Park Home

removing trees in overland park
Do I need to hire an Overland Park tree removal company? Signs that your tree is infected or infested usually have visible signs that, once you know, will be easy to identify. Once you realize that a tree on your Overland property has been compromised, however, your first thought may be — what do I do now? Detecting early and then acting early is the best way to help your tree. Unfortunately, if the sickness has moved too deeply into the tree, there is little that can be done other than to have the tree professionally removed.

Look for these signs of tree sickness


More often than not, mushroom growth means trouble as it is the result of fungus. Fungus has many ways of getting into a tree’s system, but the real problem arises when it releases an enzyme that preys upon a tree’s tissue. At this point a tree can decline quickly and if it is too weak by the time this has happened, the tree must be removed from your landscape.

Yellow or brown leaves

This is one of the first signs that a tree is sick. When a tree is internally damaged, it is unable to distribute nutrients to the rest of the tree. This looks like yellow or brown leaves/needles. This is most obvious in trees like evergreens that are supposed to stay green all year. Do not be confused if you see this happening at the end of fall, right before winter as a tree is simply entering into its natural dormancy phase to brave the cold. If you see this happening in the spring though, then there might be an issue.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
