Protect your Trees and House from Winter Storms

winter storms

A weak or dead tree can be a liability during winter storms.

Trees hanging over the house can make anyone nervous, especially with the winter storms that are headed our way. This December has been the coldest in years, which is a sign that we may soon have to endure cold winds and snow. If you have tall trees, you have to keep an eye on them during a heavy snowfall. A tree that’s overburdened with snow could fall, doing extensive damage. Make sure you take the proper precautions to protect your trees and home from winter storms.

Inspect your trees

Walk outside and check on your trees. If trees are leaning or look weak, then contact tree services for tree removal. Branches that are hanging lower than normal may be weakened and could break under the weight of snow. Weak trees are easy to spot. You don’t have to be an expert to tell if trees are hanging on for dear life.

Hiring a Tree Service

Going to your local Home Depot and buying a chainsaw to cut down a tree on your own is not always the safest option. Leave it to the experts and hire a tree service to properly cut down hanging branches and weak trees. The danger of doing it yourself is that many times people don’t know which way the tree is going to fall when you cut it. A tree removal service knows the proper way to cut down a tall tree.

After the tree is cut down you must remove the tree from the property. Tree removal services will easily take care of that for you.  The costs of paying for a car or house repair will greatly outweigh paying for landscaping.

Pruning Trees

Pruning trees is a good way to keep a tree without having to cut it down. Pruning includes shaping a young tree and removing crossing branches. Pruning your trees is a great way to remove extraneous branches and stimulate growth. However, if a tree is extensively diseased or unstable, then it is best to have it cut down.
