Trees are a valuable addition to any landscape. From enhancing curb appeal to improving the overall quality of life, trees are no denying essential to the ecosystem. However, like most living things, trees are susceptible to damage and require regular care to ensure they are healthy. The most common cause of tree deterioration is storms, ranging from small broken branches to fallen trees.
At Driscoll Tree Service, we aim to help property owners maintain healthy, durable trees through top-notch care and routine maintenance inspections. If you live in an area frequently affected by storms, it may be time to hire a tree care company. Here’s how storms affect your trees and how to mitigate further damage.
The most common tree damage following a storm is damaged branches and limbs, which pose a danger to people and the tree itself. A vast, severely damaged limb still attached can fall anytime, injuring passersby and destroying property. Don’t attempt a DIY removal if you see a heavy limb hanging precariously! Call a professional tree service as soon as possible before things get out of hand.
As mentioned, damaged limbs pose a risk to people and the tree itself. A broken limb isn’t necessarily a significant cause for concern, especially if it is attached to the tree. However, it opens a gateway for infestations and infections, which can compromise the well-being of the entire tree and yard. Whether you are dealing with heavy or small branches, we recommend hiring a tree service for professional help. We can inspect, detect, diagnose, and address trivial issues before they become more pronounced.
If the top of your tree falls off during a storm, you’ll need a reputable tree care company to determine if the tree is salvageable. A certified arborist can check if the top is intact and signs of bacteria and insects, which often leads to tree death. Based on the severity of the damage, you can expect our tree service experts to handle the heavy lifting without risking the quality of your landscape. We leverage standard-industry tools to remove fallen trees, protecting you from injuries and property damage associated with DIY projects.
Storms often comprise strong winds, heavy rains, and lighting. When all these factors are in play, the destruction is significant and can even topple large trees. Even with regular maintenance, the forces of nature can overwhelm your trees, wreaking havoc in your backyard. If a tree falls in your backyard, leave it to the professionals. A tree is usually uprooted when the soil is waterlogged, or there’s a loss of root mass. DIYers without experience or the right equipment risk further deterioration and injuries, not to mention additional costs.
Storms are unpredictable, and having a reliable tree care company ensures you and your trees are protected during a storm. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service and schedule an appointment with our representatives. Enjoy top-notch tree services and maintenance without breaking the bank.
