Pruning Old Map Tree Overhanging House

[Post a Follow Up] [Post to this category]

We have a 100 year old maple tree very near our home with limbs over the house. It has been struck by lightening and hollow. It is still alive and we want to preserve it. We just want to take some out of the top to get some weight off of it.

Hi Otto:

This is obviously a job for a certified arborist!

Please contact a local certified arborist for an on-site inspection of your tree:

Best of luck!
