This winter has been particularly brutal for some of us in the Valley. High winds, heavy wet snow, and even a tornado have left thousands of trees in a weakened state. Dead trees are usually easy to spot but how can you identify a weak or dying tree? An article published by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation describes some features of hazardous trees to look out for. Many involve looking for weak points, decay, and damage. If you have any trees in your yard that fit the description of a hazardous tree, Family Tree and Home can trim or remove the tree in a safe and controlled manner. Give us a call for an opinion and estimate.
