In this WHYY article, Jason Parker from Davey's North Philadelphia office shares the importance of winter tree care.
Arborists are encouraging homeowners to prepare their trees for winter storms, heavy snow, and ice, which can damage trees if they have weak structures.
Jason Parker, an arborist at the Davey Tree Expert Company, said there’s a lot of risks when it comes to trees in the winter.
