Unusual Tree Hazard

To ensure safety, it is important to have all trees on site inspected, not only to ensure that they structurally sound, but also to determine that the location of the tree is appropriate.  As seen here, this tree was planted too close to the house and deck. As a result, its trunk began putting pressure on the deck structure and its roots started to have a negative impact on the foundation of the house. Before planting, it is always a good idea to check with a professional arborist to be sure that the location is right for the tree, at present and in the future.
