Welcome to the hazard tree information home page of the USDA Forest Service,
Northeastern Area State & Private Forestry, Forest Health Protection unit.
This web site provides information on the hazards posed by trees. Trees that have defects in roots, trunk, or branches make them likely to fail, perhaps causing personal injury or property damage. You will find information and publications on hazard trees that we have developed, as well as links to other sources of hazard tree information.
