What qualifies as a potential hazard? Ashi-Certified Inspector Wes O. identifies a significant danger during an inspection - a large tree leaning towards the house. While home inspectors are not arborists, LunsPro Home Inspections categorizes this as a potential hazard. Leaning trees might seem innocuous, but they pose significant threats to your home and safety. By staying vigilant, understanding the warning signs, and seeking professional advice, homeowners can effectively address this issue and protect their property from potential disasters. Remember, safety always comes first when dealing with trees on your property.
