If your tree has sustained damage from weather events, a vehicle collission, or for many other reasons, it can be a very distressing feeling.

Trees that are bending to one side, have branches and limbs sagging under their own weight, or appear to be losing their shape may cause you to worry about their overall health. Tree branches that are hanging low may be a symptom that your tree is in distress from disease, malnourishment, damage, or that the tree requires some pruning so limbs don't break and fall on property or cause injuries.
As trees grow and mature, they can start to encroach on neighbor's or city property, begin to look overgrown, and can start to have health issues. Trees that require trimming may need more water, sunlight, and fertilization, and can succumb to malnourishment. Trees in desperate need of pruning can become more vulnerable to weather conditions like wind and heavy snow, causing branches to break. Broken branches cause property damage or injury.
Trees are a beautiful component of many properties, providing shade, visual interest, and play a part in the eco system. When trees get too old, large, or suffer fatal disease or injury, they can become a problem. Trees in poor health can't stand up to adverse weather like wind and snow. Broken branches can cause property damage or injury. Tree roots can cause problems with foundations or other concrete fixtures. Need to remove your tree?

Hedges and bushes that are overgrown can create a shabby appearance in your yard, obstruct sidewalks, encroach on neighbor's yards, and can actually out-grow their sustainability, meaning their size may now require more water or nutrients.

Diseased trees can become distressed trees when they are not treated by properly certified arborists and botanists, and this can lead to concerns about whether trees can survive their diseases. Diseased trees can cause a hazard from dead branches, may take away from the curb appeal of your home or the beauty of your property, and may be contagious to trees around then. Black Knot, Dutch Elm Disease, and others are treatable tree diseases.
