The majority of property damage caused by a severe weather outbreak is the result of fallen trees and branches. During summer months, heavy rains may saturate the soil causing tree roots to give, while heavy winds can lead to broken limbs. In winter, the excess weight from ice and snow accumulation can often weaken or break branches. Fortunately, post-storm damage can be minimized with a tree assessment before severe weather even strikes.
At Stevenson Tree Care, our certified arborists are trained to identify and mitigate the hazards that lead to broken limbs and fallen trees. Upon inspection, our team can pinpoint potential weak spots caused by issues such as decay or weak branch attachments. Once the hazard is known, a plan is created to help your tree withstand inclement weather.
Treatment may include:
- Pruning to reduce wind load
- Pruning to remove dead, weakly attached, or broken limbs
- Installation of cables and braces
- Removal of a hazardous tree before it fails
