Most people with trees in their garden or neighbourhood will be aware that many species will grow quite large if left to their own devices.
There are many reasons why this could cause you problems.
Avoid damage to property
Large trees can cause damage to properties when their root system interfering with a property’s foundations. While the roots themselves don’t usually damage the foundations of a building, as they draw in water the density of the soil and the support it offers the foundations can be drastically reduced.
The trunk or even branches of larger trees can also cause damage when they break in harsh weather conditions and fall onto property. In fact, even by growing too close to a building or fence, a tree can cause extensive damage to it as adverse weather conditions cause branches to collide repeatedly with it or the trunk itself to bring excessive pressure to bear.
Keeping the peace
Another problem with larger trees is that they can cause problems and bad feeling between yourself and your neighbours. It may be that your tree overshadows or overhangs a neighbour’s garden reducing the amount of available natural light their garden gets during the day or simply making a garden feel more enclosed or hiding the open skies from the neighbour. The shaded region caused by your tree can also limit the types of plants that can be grown in that area or even how it is used. The amount of leaf drop and seedlings which appear in gravelled areas or vegetable patches under large trees means more tidying and weeding is required.
None of these problems will help you maintain good relationships with those that live around you. The solution is clear. Keep trees to a sensible size and all of these problems become a lot more manageable. You may wish to remove the tree, but worry about having a large stump left or about how much work and hassle it will be to remove the wood afterwards.
