From afar, trees can appear in good health and relatively stable. However, a closer inspection can reveal problems ranging from the minor to the urgent, but many property owners don't look at their trees close enough to notice until it's too late and damage is done.

In the busyness of everyday life, Houstonians often find themselves pulled in multiple directions in a given day, or have several things competing for their time and attention.
