The only thing more dangerous than a tree with a weak, shallow root system, is a tree with broken or dead limbs. While the tree, for the most part, may withstand hurricane-strength winds, damaged limbs more than likely will turn in to hazardous missiles. Some signs that your tree needs to be pruned to prevent such accidents include:

– trees with dense, heavy canopies

– trees that are dying or dead

– newly planted trees and young trees

– trees with codominant trunks
