Trees can require removal for a number of reasons, from construction to disease. One reason people often don't think about it until its too late is because of our weather. Because we are susceptible to both heavy winter snows and strong storms in summer, it is important to assess your trees accordingly. Trees that lean over your house, have signs of disease, or have hollow sections can topple in a storm, doing devastating amounts of damage to homes and automobiles. They may also endanger family members if heavy limbs fall unexpectedly or the storms come while your family is unprepared. Removal of questionable trees is best done by experts who are both licensed and insured, to protect both your existing landscaping and your home.
