The WRA meter reader has noticed many dead and dying evergreen/conifer trees while out in the neighborhood reading the water meters of homeowners. These trees on members’ lots are hazardous to life and property and need to be brought down safely as soon as reasonably possible. Trees are dying because of ice storms and lighting strikes. Even worse, some trees have been infected with root rot that is spread underground from tree to tree. It is imperative that this be addressed and resolved. Please check your conifers for color and needle content. It is better to bring down the tree than have it fall on your house and cause catastrophic damage and possibly injuring a person. WRA recommends seeking professionals to bring down large trees.
