Floridians know how serious hurricanes and summer storms can damage trees in your yard. High winds, rain and lightning can cause problems to even the healthiest trees. With proper care and maintenance, you can sleep soundly at night knowing that your trees are in safe condition and strong enough to withstand a storm. We can clean up the messes left behind from storms, but we can also assist you to prepare for those situations.
Before storm season hits, we can analyze your yard to make sure there are no cracked tree trunks or limbs, hollow or decayed trees, and anything near the roof of your house or powerlines that could fall and cause damage. After taking care of those issues before a storm, your yard will be safer when the bad weather strikes.
Following a storm, we can attend emergencies like fallen trees, large branches on the ground, broken branches and hanging limbs. Our emergency services are available 24/7 so we can help you when disasters happen.
The National Storm Damage Center estimates that over $1 million in property damage is caused by falling trees and broken branches each year. Although there is no “hurricane-proof” solution for your yard, there are things you can do right now to minimize your risk.
Before storm season begins, it’s a good idea to walk around your yard and pay close attention to your trees and landscaping. Some of the things to look out for include:
- Dead or Dying Trees
- Trees with Dense Canopies
- Trees with Weak Limbs
- Newly Planted or Young Trees
- Trees with Split Trunks
- Trees with Lightning or Pest Damage
If you notice any of these issues, it’s important to have a professional tree service come out and inspect your property immediately. We’ll take the time to trim excess branches, thin dense trees and remove any landscaping that may be at risk of damaging your home or those nearby.
