The last time I was at my daughter’s house, I noticed that the trees in her backyard were looking a bit beatdown. She told me that they had been having a lot of storms and waved off my concerns. I went back not that long ago, and I knew as soon as I looked at the trees in her yard that something more than heavy storms were the cause of the trees looking the way they did. I contacted a tree company in Hendersonville NC to see if they could come out after my daughter gave me permission to do that.
I told her I would cover the cost because I knew that money was a bit tight for her and the kids. She insisted on paying me back, but I was not worried about that. I just wanted to help my daughter out. The man from the tree company came out and looked at the trees, and he confirmed what I had thought was wrong. Three of the trees were diseased, and they spreading it to others in the area. Thankfully, we had called in time where the others could be saved.
Unfortunately though, he did say that the three trees that were heavily diseased would need to come down if we wanted to save the other trees. He explained how trees spread disease to other trees because their root systems are so close underground. I knew that my daughter was going to be heartbroken to lose the three trees, but I knew it would be worse if we did not have them cut down and she ended up losing all of the trees in her back yard. The tree company took all three trees down, and they even offered some landscaping tips to my daughter that would enhance her remaining trees. Her backyard looks even better now that she has taken their advice!
