Now that winter is rapidly approaching we should take a few moments to evaluate our trees to see if we notice any hazards. Doing this before winter hits can help reduce the damage a storm might bring, and reduce your exposure to liability. Having a certified arborist inspect your trees can help determine how hazardous your tree is, and provides documentation of the condition of your tree before a storm hits.
When trees come down in part or whole, those impacted by the tree’s failure might want to pursue action against the owner of the tree. If your tree is showing signs of failure and you do nothing about it, you will likely be found negligent in your duty to do what is considered prudent. Your tree is also likely to be hazardous if it has a history of causing damage. Calling Rich’s Tree Service for a free hazard assessment performed by one of our certified arborists will help put your mind at ease.
