Thanks. I printed them out for future reference.

A tree question I have concerns when to be proactive taking trees down. My issue specifically are some very large trees in the poplar family (not sure exactly which species) which dependent upon the direction they fell in might hit the house. The largest of them has a circumference of about 11′ at waist height, so I’m talking big trees. If any hit the house now it wouldn’t be a big deal so long as we weren’t underneath where it hit. A call to the insurance company would set the repairs in motion. Post-SHTF however that wouldn’t be happening. They are fully mature and entering the slow decline phase of life but such processes are slow. What stops me from having them taken down now is they are magnificent to look at and add a lot to the aesthetics of the property. Maybe it comes down to how lucky I feel.
