The best strategy to deal with storms is to do preventive maintenance to your trees. Although it’s impossible to make a property completely storm proof, our experienced arborists can determine if a tree is in need of hazard prevention pruning or removal to lessen the chance of damage from a storm. Sometimes the untrained eye cannot see the hazards around a property such as defects or decay in structure, poor rooting, or overly heavy canopies. Heavy rains make saturated soils combined with strong winds usually lead to broken branches and fallen trees. Root systems fail and branches weaken; trees with foliage from heavy spring growth just add to winter stress with more wind resistance and weight. We are more than happy to assess your trees before the storm hits and make any recommendations towards preventive maintenance that could avoid costly damage.
