How to Hire a Tree Care Professional

First Paragraph:
Trees are valuable landscape assets. They provide beauty and shade, along with a number of social, environmental, community, and economic benefits to our cities, town, suburbs, and landscapes. For these reasons, trees require an investment of time, money and expertise for the proper selection, planting, care, maintenance and removal. When problems occur, such as storm or insect damage, or general maintenance is required, the help of a tree care professional may be warranted. Pruning or the removal of large trees is hazardous work, especially if it requires climbing or working from an elevated position. Such work should be left to trained and qualified tree care professionals.
