My neighbors are cutting down their large Bradford Pear trees for fear of tree failure. They say that these trees have a 30 year life expectancy and they have been planted approximately 36 years ago. I do not agree and would hate to lose this beautiful tree. Am I wrong to let ours live?
Most trees have a life expectancy, including Bradford Pears. But these numbers vary greatly due to many different conditions including location, health of tree, soil type, etc. Using the anticipated life expectancy to determine if a tree should be removed isn't the only factor. The tree should be inspected by a certified arborist to look for health issues or structural problems with the tree. Click here to schedule an appointment with one of our professionals.
