How to Prepare Your Trees for a Summer Storm


When you think about your home, you sometimes wonder what would happen in a strong storm? New York and Connecticut experience their fair share of hurricanes and summer storms. A storm can cause significant damage if your trees are not properly prepared. Hence, it is important to take care of them now before the storm to protect you, your family and your property!

Pruning is an essential part of storm preparation. Trees too close to power lines can topple over in strong winds, causing breakdowns or worse, fires. You should look for dead branches or branches that could fall on your home during a storm. If you have trees close to the roof, make sure they are healthy enough to not only withstand strong gusts but also not protrude too far from the roofline – if a tree falls against the house walls, it can cause significant damage and even cause it to collapse.

Tree wiring is a solution for homeowners who want to give their trees extra support to withstand strong summer storms. Cables add extra strength and stability to your tree and can be an important investment in protecting your home from costly storm damage.

Tree removal helps keep your belongings safe and clean. It would be best if you felled dead or dying trees. Trees that have seen better days may need to be removed from your yard before they topple over this summer’s storm season. However, it is important not to cut down healthy trees. Don’t just remove any tree, as some will still thrive despite their age or condition.
