Trim Trees Now to Prevent Storm Damage

Published on: July 15, 2019

One of the main sources of storm damage to property is trees. It is not just toppling trees that can cause significant damage; dead branches landing on vehicles, patio furniture, roofs, siding and people can also rack up large damage bills. Even though homeowner’s insurance will usually pay for storm damage caused by trees, there is still a deductible to pay and a possible hike in insurance premiums to consider, as well as possible injuries to your family. Trimming trees now could prevent storm damage that could be costly to you in the future.

It is common for trees to have branches that die, even if the rest of the tree is healthy. A branch that was damaged in a previous storm or has been affected by insects or disease can die and become a hazard. When high winds set in or a heavy rain, hail or snow storms hit, these dead branches are the first to come down. Not only do they make a mess of your yard, they can do serious harm and injury when they fall.

Hire a Landscaper for Tree Trimming

The best way to avoid branch damage during severe storms is to proactively remove dead branches. However, this can be dangerous to do on your own. Some landscaping companies offer tree trimming as one of their services, which is a safer and more convenient option. They have the equipment and expertise to remove any dead or dangerous limbs from your trees and can also haul them away for you. Your trees will look neater and be healthier once these old hanging branches are removed and you can reduce your risk of serious storm damage or injuries caused by hazardous limbs.
