When it comes to hiring contractors or service providers, they can either be proactive in their work, or they can be reactive. Reactive contractors will typically only repair or maintain specific areas and will not look beyond the immediate issue. On the other hand, proactive contractors and service providers will often look at the entire situation and offer in-depth recommendations and analysis for long-term care and function. This is especially true in the area of tree care and tree maintenance.
From afar, a residential or commercial property might look like the pinnacle of health and beauty because of regular maintenance and beautiful landscaping.

For residential and commercial property owners, trees are some of the most prominent and valuable parts of the landscape. Unfortunately, trees can suffer damage from a variety of sources, such as high winds, heavy rains, and invasive insects. While trees cannot be completely protected from these problems, tree owners do have options when it comes to protecting trees from other kinds of damage, such as lightning damage.

Unfortunately, not all contractors are the same, and this is especially true in the tree and landscape industry. Often, unsuspecting property owners hire tree crews and amateur landscapers with workers that should not be allowed on residential or commercial properties.

In today's blog post, we'll look at what tree evaluations can reveal about our tree's health, stability and beauty.
