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.
