Trees struck with a sudden lean after a storm will likely need an arborist’s attention. If your tree is leaning close to your home, car or a common area, it could be posing an immediate threat, so call a certified tree expert.
By conducting a tree risk assessment, your arborist will determine if the tree’s structure has been affected.
