How to Prevent Tree Damage

Every year trees cause incredible damage to people and property. In the most tragic of situations, trees even cause death. This occurred last winter when a tree fell into a house and killed a woman.  What makes this incident particularly sad is that it could have been prevented. Authorities believe the tree fell due to decay at the base of the tree. Apparently a large portion of the tree broke off during previous years, leaving an exposed gap at the bottom of the trunk, which led to rot. When a storm blew through the area, the base gave way and the tree collapsed. Had the deterioration been identified earlier, and had the tree been removed under controlled circumstances, this tragedy could have been prevented.
