What Makes Trees Fall

Question From: MICHIGAN
Q: Since last year the trees are loosing bark. Now no rain trees are stressed. My daughter's neighbor's tree fell on her house last year. Tell people to water their trees. 20 minutes every other day water a day. So trees don't fall.

A: There are many reasons why trees fall. For years (25 plus) I have recommended homeowners get an on-site inspection from certified arborist (https://tcia.org) to assess the issues that affect their trees. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy,
