Earth Calendar for March 21st and 22nd

Mar 21, 2012

There are many stories in the news media each year depicting details of homeowners who are severely injured of killed when attempting to manage large tree limbs on their own. Tree work, while appearing fairly straightforward, is actually extremely complicated and technical. There is much to understand about removing live or hanging tree branches and it is not at all like cutting up firewood on the ground. Qualified tree professionals are trained to look for and take special precautions against trees or branches with decay, cracks or unbalanced weight, working around electrical wires and many other variables. Trees are complex organisms that need to be cut in a certain way to remove pieces safely. For help finding a professional arborist, visit the Tree Care Industry Association website.
