Misconceptions About Taking Care of A Tree
A major and costly misconception is that “trees can take care of themselves without any help.” This can be true in a forest, where a tree can grow without the potential of damaging a home, downing a power line or blocking a great view.
On the other hand, a tree does need tree service and care in urban, suburban and rural environments. If they are not cared for, many species of trees can also become damaged by pests. And often, when it comes to trees on residential and commercial properties, if a tree becomes too big you may need to remove it.
In some ways, trees are just like flowers in a garden. You have to care for them regularly, or else your garden becomes overgrown.

Removing Eucalyptus Trees
The Eucalyptus Tree is known as “California’s most annoying tree”. The tree was brought over by settlers in the 1800s. The seeds were planted for oil and medicinal purposes from its dried up leaves. Although Eucalyptus continues to be used today for medicinal reasons, it is classified by Southern California Arborists as an invasive species.
Eucalyptus catches fire very easily which is a major problem in California. Removing a Eucalyptus tree is not difficult for a professional service, but more complicated for a homeowner to do themselves. The shallow roots of this tree make the removal of the stump fairly straight forward. But, if not done well, the roots of a Eucalyptus tree can cause major problems down the road.
