Get ahead of potential issues with tree pruning
Every homeowner in Toronto has a responsibility to ensure that trees are maintained and safe to prevent injury or damage to property. This means that trees should be inspected regularly, with tree reports provided by a trained arborist.
Unfortunately trees can suffer from a range of diseases, pests and stresses that can impact their health and vitality over time. Often what can look like a healthy tree can actually be a safety hazard, while sometimes trees that look rather ugly may be in fine health — just not particularly attractive.
Whatever the concern, speaking to a professional to develop a plan of action is the best way to avoid the unexpected. And sometimes the best course of action is none at all!
