Reducing Tree Damage
Falling trees and limbs cause millions of dollars in damage each year damaging homes and cars and downing power lines. Windstorms, such as hurricanes, are a leading cause of such damage and injury. Homeowners represent the first line of defense, but often neglect taking their surroundings into consideration when trying to protect or prepare their property from storms.
The Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) identifies several ways to help prevent damage before a storm strikes and how to clean up the aftermath. It is important for homeowners and business owners to regularly examine trees on or near their property and check for damage or other trouble signs. For instance, good pruning can prevent many problems, but over-pruning can significantly weaken a tree.
