Cracked Trees Can Cause Serious Problems

Have you noticed any cracks or splits in the trees that are near your home?  Cracks in trees can be caused by freezing temperatures and with the violent temperature changes we have been experiencing this winter, it's more likely to happen quicker in trees since they are freezing and thawing week to week.
 
Cracks in trees can cause them to fail and fall over due to the internal decay which can leave you with extremely costly repair bills.  Professional arborists can assess the landscape and work to determine the best care for your trees.
 
TreeCareTips.org will lend advice to those who may already have cracks in their trees, see them developing or suspect that their trees could potentially crack at some point.
