Falling trees or tree limbs present a very serious threat to people, property, and powerlines during heavy winds or downpours. Although not all storm damage can be prevented, a professional arborist can inspect trees and evaluate them for potential weaknesses such as decay and structural flaws. A tree expert should also perform preventative maintenance such as thinning and pruning. Keeping your trees well pruned is the best way to prevent storm damage. This allows for air to flow easily through the tree canopy and reduces the risk of breakage. In some cases, supplemental support systems of cabling and bracing can be installed to limit branch movement and provide additional support during storms. In the event that your trees become damaged during severe weather, Branching Out Tree Service will promptly remove hazardous fallen trees or branches safely and efficiently.
