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.

I had a 60+ ft Pine in my backyard that was inching its way toward my house so I called Tarzan Tree Service. He gave me a reasonable estimate with the time it would take them to bring it down. They showed up at my house early and did not stop working until everything was down and packed away. Tarzan Tree was professional, kept safety first, and cleaned everything up as if nothing had happened. I would recommend them for any tree service hands down. Great Service!!!
