Here are three ways to prevent high winds and storms from damaging your trees.

Keep Your Soil Healthy

Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. The soil around your trees have a direct impact on your trees health and can be a good indicator of their state. If the dirt seems dry or cracked, it’s likely your roots aren’t getting the moisture they need. If the growing process seems to have slowed significantly or the tree seems to be especially susceptible to diseases, it’s a good idea to add mulch to the soil.

Keep A Lower Profile

Storm force winds can uproot a tree and send it flying into a home, car, street or anything else that stands in it’s way. Often times, thick branches and leaves make it easy for winds to exert more force on the tree. By pruning the branches, wind passes through them much more easily, lessening the likelihood that winds can knock them over, this is typically the most effective option at keeping your trees and the rest of your property safe.

Fully Insured & Licensed

Insurance License

My Name is Carrie and I live in Virginia Beach. I hired Tarzan Tree Service after hearing about them through a friend. I had always gone with another Tree Service so I was a little hesitant to try someone new. I scheduled an estimate and within 24 hours one of the owners was there. He presented himself in a professional manner and gave me a very competitive price. I was a little concerned about their legitimacy due to the low price so I checked out their website and found printable copies of their license and insurance on the site with phone numbers to verify it all. When they showed up to do the job the entire crew was clean-cut and courteous.  They gave my son a ride on the equipment before starting the job. These men removed 8 huge trees over my house and back yard within one day and left the yard cleaner than they found it. There is not a better tree company out there...

Thank you Tarzan Tree, these guys rock!!!
