If you’re a homeowner, you know that there’s a lot for you to keep an eye on. Lawn maintenance, mulching, the list goes on and on.  But there’s one aspect of your property that it’s critically important to watch, and that’s if you’ve got hazard trees.

A hazard tree is defined as a tree with a structural defect that can cause all or part of the tree to fall on someone or something of value. In plain English, if you’ve got a dead or diseased tree that could land on someone or cause damage, you’ve got a hazard tree. First of all, you need to make sure your loved ones and your home isn’t in an impact zone. Also, it’s a sad fact of modern life that we live in a litigious time. As a home or property owner, if a hazard tree damages something or causes injury or death, you could be held liable. There’s one more aspect to consider, however. Just because a tree looks problematic doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily an danger. It’s one thing to get rid of a problem, but the removal of a tree should be a last resort. Wise tree managers strike a balance between preserving as many trees as possible and removing threats to life and property.
