Despite the limited snow, winter can still be damaging to your trees. Ensure your property is safe and your trees are healthy this spring.
A quick walk around your property is all it will take for a Certified Arborist to detect any winter damage that could be hazardous to your property. Even though we had very little snow in our region, it is still very possible to have broken tree limbs and “hangers.” There is even quite a bit of damage out there left over from the snow storm we got in October!
Broken limbs in trees can be an enormous liability and safety hazard. Too often, homeowners ignore “hangers” but ultimately end up paying the price after the broken branch falls on their house, garage, shed, car; or even worse, a person. Most of these mishaps can be avoided just by having a trained eye scout your property each spring.
It is not uncommon for healthy trees to have a broken branch here and there, especially after a storm, but if there are trees that are constantly shedding broken branches then there may be internal damage to the tree. A knowledgeable Arborist will be able to detect structural damage easily and recommend strategies to mitigate risks of fallen branches and help return a tree to a healthy state if possible.
Take advantage of this beautiful weather and take a walk around your property to look for broken branches. If you see anything alarming, or would like some expert advice, consider a free consultation with a Cut-Rate Arborist.
