Hire an Arborist for Those Tree Limbs, Experts Say

NORTHWEST JACKSON -- Wait before you touch those down trees.

Experts say wind places loads on trees, including trunks, branches and roots, and the different lengths and sizes of tree branches can cause some serious injuries if you're not careful.  

A local arborist says professionally trained tree workers know what to look out for.

"A professional tree care company is going to have the right tools for the job, the right insurance coverage, their crew members are going to be highly trained and knowledgeable about the proper ways for disposal and clean-up of tree debris," Sam Spence, a local arborist, said.
