If you have debris on your property from an older tree or broken branches that have fallen from the recent wind and wet ground, think before you take action.
Matthew Tierney with Mot's Tree Service in Spotsylvania says it can be dangerous to remove a tree yourself. The pressure could cause it to snap, bounce back and hurt you or someone else, so at least consult with a professional arborist.
