f710044bf79a4b1f5d8b085e5e5d9711_MWith 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. Have a Certified Arborist out for a free consultation if you are worried about any aspects of your landscape that need to be preparred for the remainder of hurricane season.

Hazardous Trees Along the Street and Sidewalk

Posted by Amy O

f7a0a54c92471ac4480e727e4ccf93df_MTrees planted incorrectly along streets, sidewalks, and driveways can become a hazard, especially after a storm.

The great debate: is that tree along the sidewalk your responsible, or the town's or municipality's? Often times trees that are growing along a cement or concrete area will become hazardous. The inability of the tree's roots to grow correctly and gain proper rooting will often result in a fallen tree and damaged property. This often occurs during late summer and fall storms, such as the one we just experienced in our region. Heavy winds can be too much for these trees with weak root structure.

Our Certified Arborists are always on the look out for these trees along the sides of roads, as residents usually give the tree the cold shoulder assuming that it is the responsilibity of the town or municipality. We highly recommend checking out the trees around your house that me be growing in such an area. If it looks like the tree may be growing incorrectly, or already starting to lean or up-root, we suggest calling the town office to see what they can do about the tree. If a tree is posing a potential threat to any of your property, and the town owns the tree, they will need to ensure the tree is safe, or have it serviced.

If the tree is not property of the town, but rather belongs to you or your neighbors, you can call Cut-Rate out for a free consultation to inspect and provide solutions. We've seen many trees up-rooted from the recent Hurricane. Don't let this happen to you. Ensure you property is safe, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
