During good weather many homeowners forget or ignore the possibility of tree failure when conditions become less than ideal. Although recent months have produced few severe weather events, such as heavy rains accompanied by strong winds, this spring there were times when many tress failed and caused severe damage and economic loss. In most instances the damage resulted from unhealthy trees that have not been properly maintained.

There are many things I love about fall; cool weather, the beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves, shorter days and the State Fair.
