I’m not sure if this tree is dangerous. How do I find out?
There’s a lot to contemplate when addressing the question of whether or not a tree is safe to remain on your property. The species of the tree, if it shows any root damage, whether or not it is directly hit by strong wings, if it’s planted on a ledge or elevated surface, and many other factors come into play. One unlucky consistency is that all trees are quite unpredictable when it comes to harsh weather conditions and storms during any season.
