In the aftermath of our recent storms some "tree service" people have been going door to door offering to "top" mature trees in the city.
This is no longer acceptable practice and is widely known to create dangerous conditions. DO NOT LET ANYONE TOP YOUR TREES.
A chainsaw, truck and so many years in business does not mean someone is qualified to touch your trees.
Cleaning up downed branches is one thing, but you don't want anyone but a certified arborist cutting a living tree on your property.
