Cut back any trees or branches that are touching the siding or roof. Safety Note: use a sturdy ladder, have someone with you to assist, and if you can’t reach the branch without over-extending yourself, leave it for the pros. When using a pole pruner wear head and eye safety gear for protection from falling material and always be aware of overhead utility lines.
