We are fortunate to live in a picturesque part of the country with rolling hills, rugged mountains and lots of trees.
Trees are a valuable and beautiful asset that complement our landscape and provide food and shelter to birds and other wildlife. Depending on the type of trees and where they are planted, they also shade our homes from the hot sun, block blustery winds and reduce our energy needs during extreme temperatures.
However, when trees are planted without regard to their surroundings, or are not properly maintained, they can create serious issues that grow worse each year. They can cause property damage, create safety hazards, and disrupt utility service.
