A healthy tree has an amazing ability to adapt and survive and is designed to withstand the harshest of elements. Trees are living, breathing things, and like humans, they can get sick and die. Tree disease can take down even the mightiest oak or redwood, but many put up a fight much like a person would when faced with a potentially deadly sickness. Sometimes tree disease can take hold in such a way that doesn't allow for recovery. When this happens, the tree can become susceptible to other diseases, and if it can't save itself, your Arborist can step in and lend a hand. But just like a doctor treating a patient, sometimes a tree is so far gone that it becomes a liability. A diseased tree that's near death in your front yard can fall on your house and leave you with a new set of problems. When it's too sick to save, the tree needs to be removed.
