Identify and Remove Nuisence Trees
Have an invasive tree or plant in your Tampa yard that you need removed? Not sure if a tree is healthy for the rest of your yard? Because of Florida's tropical weather, many tree and plant species from warmer climates that have been transplanted here have gained a foothold in our local ecosystems crowding out the natural fauna. While many look good, they can in the long run cause damage to your yard and other plants / trees.
Currently there are close to 70 different invasive plants in Florida that spread fast and can cause damage. If you find any of these gaining a foothold on your property, it is urged you have them removed properly as quickly as possible so they do not harm your yard. A trained professional tree removal company can help with proper removal of these types of plants.Some of the biggest nuisances include:
- Brazilian Pepper trees (Schinus terebinthifolius) - These can grow into shrubs or small trees of up to 40 feet. They crowd out other plants, choking them and starving them of nutrients. They are related to Poison Ivy and their sap can irritate skin. Burning the wood is not recommended as it releases toxins into the air.
- Broad-leaved paperbark (Melaleuca quinquenervia) - Intentionally brought from Australia in the 1930's, this type of tree grows in large clumps which can crowd out other plants.
- Japanese Climbing Fern (Lygodium japonicum) - This plant grows on other plants and structures shading them off from vital sunlight and causing them to eventually die off.

Hiring a knowledgeable tree service company to remove invasive trees can help minimize damage to your property and other plants as well as keep regrowth and reintroduction to a minimum. Many of these types of plants are very hard to kill and improper removal can actually lead to spreading in some cases.
