Many of our Pacific Northwest trees have shallow root systems, even when they are healthy. A strong wind , blowing through a tall tree, can apply enough leverage to bring the tree down, especially when the ground is wet.
It’s more art than science. Tacking to an angle, looking at each tree in the row both individually and in terms of its relationship to other trees. Setting a tone, and then making swift cuts for all the trees that, taken together, opens space for the wind.
Wind-sailing by AGTree Service is your ticket to longer tree life without compromising the beauty and symmetry of your trees.
