In this Curbed Atlanta article, Chris Heim, district manager of Davey's North Atlanta office, talks about how homeowners in the urban tree city should inspect their trees for dangerous warning signs.

This winter, and especially these past two weeks, heavy downpours have saturated Atlanta’s grounds, weakening the root systems of trees throughout the city.

Combined with strong winds that accompany severe storms that commonly sweep through the region, it doesn’t take much to bring trees down.

Which makes it an opportune time to get outside in this city of trees and take a closer look for warning signs. It could help Atlantans save thousands of dollars—or something less replaceable.
