With one hurricane under our belts, and more on the way, are you doing all you can to prepare your trees and landscape for hurricanes and tropical storms?
Hurricane Irene up-rooted, ripped down, and tore apart many trees, limbs, and branches in our region. Tree service providers, like Cut-Rate Tree, have been working tirelessly to remove storm damaged trees and branches from fences, driveways, porches, and more. We highly recommend strolling through your property and inspecting any trees for potential signs of weakness. Be sure to look for the following signs:
- Many fallen branches around the base of the tree
- Defoliation during the growing season
- Evidence of rotting
- Trees that are losing their bark
- Obvious insect, disease, or fungus infestation
These signs are tell-tale indicators that a tree may be structurally unsafe. Storms with high winds and heavy rains can often present situations that may be hazardous to a property and the people around it. Quickly inspecting your trees for the aforementioned signs will let you know if you need to consult with a Certified Arborist. At Cut-Rate Tree, our Arborists are all extremely well educated and experienced in tree health hazards, and can provide an analysis, with possible solutions. Don't wait until its too late. Hurricane season has really just begun, so please inspect your trees for any of these signs. It could save you from a potential disaster.
