1. Potential tree damage
Strong winter and spring winds can affect the health and appearance of your trees. In addition, heavy branches can detach or break off, causing damages to your property, home and public areas. Also, dead rotting branches can spread throughout the tree like an infection. It can also attract pests which can impact the health of your tree.
By contacting Marc Doyle Treework, you will ensure little, or no deadwood will be left to fall.
