hazard. Maintaning the integrity of your trees should be considered a crucial part
of preserving your properties' value. The honest craft that I am offering here is the
security of one of the most vital aspects to our habitat: Our Trees.

Some trees are beyond recovery and need to be removed from the habitat.
