Trees are nice to have because they create shade in a yard and can provide sun blockage that contributes to the energy efficiency of a home. However, the maintenance that comes with owning trees can overpower the benefits that are provided. For example, if there is a spruce tree in a yard, the needles can create a mess that regularly has to be cleaned, as well as cause multiple other problems.

If you are overwhelmed with the maintenance involved with your spruce tree and concerned about the overall condition it is in, maybe you should consider cutting the tree down. It might actually be in your best interest to cut the tree down if it is diseased and at risk of falling down.
