Weak trunks and hollow branches on diseased or damaged trees aren’t just an eyesore. In Eastern Massachusetts, where the weather can get rainy and windy, they pose a serious safety hazard.

If you want to ensure your trees are sturdy and safe, get a public tree inspection from the experts at Tree Tech Inc.! Our highly-qualified team of arborists knows how to identify early warning signs of damage or disease to ensure your landscape is always healthy and safe.
When to Get a Public Tree Inspection
Any tree on public-facing property should be routinely inspected at least once every 3 years.

Some key signs that your tree needs immediate professional attention include:
