Please, be safe out there. Who is the most important person??? I AM!! Remember your buddy system whenever doing anything remotely dangerous. And size-up first.
Private property owners are responsible for maintaining their trees, and they should have a certified arborist inspect their trees regularly.
There are signs that a tree may be in danger of toppling, but it's not always obvious when a tree is in poor health. This is why it's important to have a certified tree care professional inspect your trees.
County officials ask residents to report potentially dangerous trees on public properties.
