Selection of trees for planting in a home landscape depends on the desired effect and the purpose the trees will satisfy in the landscape, explains Tchukki Andersen, staff arborist with the Tree Care Industry Association.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Winter storms cause tremendous stress and severe damage to trees in the urban forest. Obviously, a snapped or downed tree should be removed. What about a tree that suffers minor damage? How can a homeowner tell if a tree is safe?
Imagine settling on a nice new home and a few weeks later having the large old oak tree fall on your house. Or maybe being informed by an arborist that an old poplar tree is dangerous because ofroot rot and it will cost $6,000 to have it removed and hauled away.
