Cacti like the Prickly Pear, Barrel or Saguaro Cactus can be really dangerous to remove if you are trying to do it on your own. Very large cacti removal needs to be handled by a professional. We have years of experience in removing large Cacti from commercial and residential properties.

Most of the time, a large cactus like the Saguaro Cactus can add aesthetics and value to your property.  However, if left unchecked, these cacti can grow quite large with roots that go in all directions to search for water. The Saguaro Cacti will grow so large that they outgrow their root system. Whenever this happens, the cactus will begin to lean and can fall over at any time. This also leaves them open to disease or infection which will attack the cactus from the inside.

The last thing that you want is for your large cactus to just fall on your house or your car. These are some of the main reasons that homeowners as well as business owners choose to remove large cacti from their properties.

There are multiple types of cacti that grow in Scottsdale like the prickly pear cactus, saguaro cactus, barrel cactus as well as the cholla cactus or jumping cactus. Most of these cacti can be great additions to your landscape but they can become too large, dangerous, or be quite invasive like the Cholla cactus.

This is the most recognizable and largest cacti species in Arizona. The Saguaro adds character to any landscape. They can live more than 150 years and grow to be quite tall. These cacti normally grow about an inch per year, which means that the taller Saguaro cacti are decades old. Whenever these cacti grow too fast or they are not supported correctly, they will become dangerous and will need to be removed to prevent damage to property.

Cholla Cactus – Jumping Cactus Removal

Arizona has naturally growing varieties of the Cholla cactus called the Jumping Cactus which can be lodged in the skin easily. This cactus is called the jumping cactus by many people because of how easily the spines dig in and sections are detached from the cactus. This happens so easily that people believe that it has jumped off and attached to them. Mesa is the only place where this type of cacti grows naturally and it is spreading into residential areas causing injury to people, pets and children.

The barrel cactus from various varieties and is a popular option for many landscapes. These cacti tend to grow to a width and height of 3 feet. During the spring, the Barrel cactus can have orange or yellow blooms. These cacti offer a great look for landscapes but they can cause injury. A stick from the barrel cactus is quite painful and lasts longer than normal because it is considered a dirty wound. This means it could take weeks or months to fully heal.

Common Cactus Problems

The most common cactus problems include:

There are 2 main problems with cacti that make them quite unsafe and mean that you should consider removal. These are when the cactus is dead or sick from diseases or pests and when a cactus has outgrown its root system and there is a risk that it may fall and cause damage to property and injure people.

Cactus Pests & Diseases

There are some airborne disease and insects that can kill or harm your cactus, like Bacterial Necrosis. There are some issues that won’t show signs until the cactus is beyond the saving point and will require the cactus to be removed. There are also some insect infestations that leave the cactus too sick or damaged to treat.

Unstable Cactus

Cacti will normally grow in the arid and dry desert environments in the southwest and do not get a lot of water as we use in landscaping. When cacti are installed in residential or commercial landscapes, they will be near other plants that require more water and the cacti root systems will quickly expand and begin to start sucking up as much water as possible. This means that the cacti that are growing in our landscapes will grow much more quickly than they would in nature and it can cause their roots to become unstable.

Dangerous To People & Pets

Cacti can be great for landscapes and offer appealing visuals. However, whenever they get too big or pose a threat to those living near them, removing the cactus may need to be considered. There are some cactus species that can grow large enough to fall and damage your property, while others have spines that can severely injure people and become lodged in the skin and be quite painful. It is wise to consider the purpose of your landscaping area and if it will be used by pets or children, then the dangerous cacti need to be removed.
