The falling tree and the value of an independent advisor
I recently had a falling tree knocking out power of the whole neighborhood. I was puzzled, as it occurred in the middle of a sunny, windless day, but even more so, as I have had an Arborist from a well-known firm checking all our trees just a few months earlier. How was that accident possible? I turned to another tree expert, recommended by a friend. This independent advisor used to work for our previous advisor and shed some light on the mystery.
