Popular species of cacti such as barrel cactus, prickly pear cactus, and saguaro cactus can easily grow to be much larger than expected.

Why Is Cactus Removal Necessary?

It’s easy to see why many property owners want to have cactus in their yard, as they are quite beautiful. However, certain cacti⁠—such as saguaro⁠—tend to grow very large when on residential or commercial property. This is especially true if you have a yard that uses an irrigation system. In fact, some cacti will grow so large that their roots will no longer support them. As a result, they may start leaning to the side. Eventually, an overgrown, leaning cactus can come crashing down to the ground. This can inflict injuries on bystanders and damage to the property.


A cactus can also become sick, as a result of diseases and pest infestations. In many cases, you may not even realize the cactus is diseased until it is too late to save it. In the meantime, however, the cactus’ stability has been undermined. This can result in an extremely dangerous situation. If the cactus topples over, it can cause harm to anyone in its path. It can also cause damage to your desert landscaping. In addition, you’ll have to remove the fallen cactus from your yard. In other words, it’s best to call for professional cactus removal as soon as you have reason to believe that a cactus has been compromised.
