Noted and passed - Sept. 30, 2013

• President Obama's approval rating is at its lowest point since he took office, and positive public opinion of Congress is barely a blip on the screen, yet Democrats and Republicans continue to hold the country hostage in their political game of one-upsmanship.

Can these trees be saved?

Through research, site evaluations and help from structural engineers, arborists are learning more and more about the how's and why's of a tree's ability to stand and fall. Many different factors are at work affecting the strength and structure of trees. A tree falls over or a branch breaks due to one basic fact: the force affecting it is greater than the strength of it. For example, when the force of the wind is stronger than the strength of the root system which holds the tree in place, it will fall.
