Now Tropical Storm Ian could cause widespread tree damage in North Carolina. The storm was downgraded from hurricane status to a tropical storm early Thursday morning while making its way across the Florida peninsula.

Mark Livingston has been an arborist for 22 years. He works for Arborguard Tree Specialists, a Davey company, and has a keen eye for tree decay. 

“If you see mushrooms around the base of the tree, that means you have tree decay and it can be unstable,” Livingston said.
