Trees are a beautiful and important part of the environment, and caring for them appropriately takes knowledge and skill. A reputable tree service company will have arborists and other qualified tree professionals on staff who can make the best tree care recommendations.
Tree problems can vary based on the climate and the type of tree, but missing pieces of bark and the growth of fungus or mushrooms are signs that a tree is not healthy and needs help. Significant damage can be caused by a falling tree, so be sure to have dead trees and branches removed promptly by a professional. Spring is the easiest time to spot any dead trees because they will not grow leaves once the weather warms up. Keep an eye out for leaning trees or areas of raised earth around the base of a tree—these are indicators of a tree that could be more likely to fall during a strong storm.
