Your trees add considerable value to your property. Your home’s trees provide aesthetic beauty, shade, and shelter. However, unhealthy trees can be a danger; diseased and dying trees can fall at any time, causing damage to your house and to people. Maintaining plant health in trees is an important part of your responsibility as a property owner.
