Trees eventually will die, sometimes from the inside out. Rot, insects and disease show themselves in trees in various ways. If ignored, limbs and sometimes entire trees collapse/fall which could cause damage to buildings and people. Besides pruning to ‘weed’ out the damaged or sick tree parts, we also install high-strength cables and other hardware to reinforce particular trees which are in danger of breaking or liable to wind-throw.
All the trees below showed signs of rot.
