Trees damaged by storms require immediate attention (removing low-hanging branches, clearing from utility lines, etc.). Homeowners need to be aware of safety issues and consider the best approach for dealing with a tree they are trying to save. Chain saw work off the ground, removing branches that can’t be reached from the ground and other heavy work (essentially all work on large trees), should be done only by professional arborists.
