Nobody likes for a tree to be cut down needlessly, but occasionally tree removal is necessary. Any scenario where a tree has a safety hazard is grounds for removal. A tree may also have to be removed for practical or aesthetic reasons.

A tree which is dead, dying, or has been damaged by storm winds poses a threat to the surrounding region. You never know when a heavy limb may fall onto your house or take down the power lines. If there's a chance that the tree could fall on your neighbor's property, it could turn into a liability issue.
Sometimes a tree just outgrows its space. In these situations, the roots could cause cracks in your driveway or foundation. Even if the tree is not damaging the residence, it might interfere with the rest of your landscaping by blocking sunlight from reaching smaller plants and absorbing most of the nutrients within the immediate area. A tree may also need to be removed to make room for renovations to your property.
Generally, normal trimming is sufficient to maintain a tree healthy and looking great. Nevertheless, you will discover some situations in which a tree merely is in the wrong location or for some other reason is detracting from the overall appearance of your yard and cannot be improved by pruning. In this case, the tree can negatively affect the value of the house and may possibly have to be removed to restore your home's curb appeal.
If you're unsure whether a tree inside your yard really should be removed or not, contact an arborist or tree specialist for a professional opinion. Should you do need to have a tree cut down, it is possible to always plant a new one to replace it in a better location.
