When it comes to protecting your trees from storms, a little preparation can go a long way. Here are a few tips for preparing your trees for severe weather events:
Trim dead or damaged branches: Removing dead or damaged branches from your trees can help to prevent them from breaking off and causing damage during a storm.
Check for loose soil: If the soil around the base of your tree is loose, it may be more prone to falling over in strong winds. Use a shovel to firm up the soil and add mulch to help anchor the tree in place.
Support young or newly planted trees: If you have young or newly planted trees, you may want to consider adding stakes or guy wires to help support them during storms.
Protect trees from lightning: If a lightning storm is imminent, avoid standing under trees, as they are often the tallest objects in an area and are more likely to be struck.
Have an emergency plan in place: If a storm is approaching and you are concerned about the safety of your trees, it’s a good idea to have an emergency plan in place. This might include having the contact information for a tree removal service handy in case you need to call for assistance.
By following these tips, you can help to protect your trees and minimize the risk of damage during a storm. If you do experience storm damage to your trees, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Wilder Things Landscaping for assistance with cleanup and removal.
