In this Fox32 story, Chris Kingzette from Davey's South Chicago office shares what to know about Zombie Trees.
Arborists are alerting property owners to a nightmarish problem this Halloween season known as "zombie trees."
The reason for the clever nickname? From the outside, they appear to be alive, but they're actually dying from the inside out.
"Trees can definitely appear to be healthy and alive, but there can be some defects on the inside that can cause failure," said arborist Chris Kingzette, a local District Manager for The Davey Tree Expert Company. "That's the dangerous aspect of it. Because as a homeowner, you look at a tree with leaves on it, it looks healthy, but there could be some major problems inside of that tree."
