Trees are an important asset in our landscapes, providing many benefits. Yet we must understand that all trees present some level of risk. However, it is important to realize that the benefits trees provide far outweigh the risks. We don’t want to remove trees unnecessarily, but rather should aim to reduce risk and the potential for failure by identifying, analyzing, and evaluating risk and performing the appropriate mitigation. The key component of that process is the ability to identify common defects. (A, U, M, T, L, Bs, Bp)
