“Our home is surrounded by huge, picturesque oak trees. When Marin County Arborists fertilized some of our other trees, they pointed out the danger of a few large branches overhanging our roof. Strong winds could easily snap them and destroy our home. Sure enough, when winds hit, my neighbor’s tree fell right through their roof while ours remained intact because we had trimmed the branches.” Candiece Lindstrom, Kentfield
