On a recent home inspection there was a tree that was too close to the home. Not only was it too close to the home, it was touching a chimney. It's very important to maintain seperation from your chimney to any combustible materials. You also don't want your vegetation to be touching your soffits. As a home inspector I recommend they trim there tree.Read More
