Weakened Trees

Inspect trees for broken branches. If the limb is high up, hire a licensed arborist. If you can reach it from the ground, take it down using the three-cut technique, which prevents bark from tearing and creating an open wound on the trunk:

  • Make the first cut 1 to 2 feet from the branch collar, sawing a quarter way through the bottom of the branch.
  • Make the second cut 3 inches farther out from the first, sawing all the way through the branch.
  • Make the final cut just beyond the branch collar, sawing from the top down.

Inspect for roots poking through the soil, a possible sign that the tree is starting to list.
