“I don’t know no one who don’t like trees –cepting when they causes problems”. An Appalachian saying.
There may be some truth to this humble saying however, a specimen tree is a delight to behold: strong, majestic and healthy, it is nature at its best . However, that same tree placed too close to a home can damage a roof ,window or wall in storm, crush a car, take down a power line, block a road or harm a person. Usually the form of damage is to something else rather than to it.
Trees usually are not problems, thoughtfully placed trees compliment architecture, provide climate control and esthetically increase property value.
