Trees have a natural ability to handle most weather conditions. Over years of growth, a tree will acclimate to wind, soil moisture, and other weather related activity at a given site.
On occasion however, trees are exposed to elements that they aren’t used to. This will cause the most vulnerable portions of a tree, or sometimes the entire plant, to fail. Not only can this cause an extreme hazard to people, pets, and property, it can be devastating to the health of your tree.
Many trees can simply have these broken limbs removed, and the wounds repaired so the tree can heal off the injury, while others may be so damaged that they cannot be saved.
Even more importantly, most large storm damaged specimens will have damage that cannot be assessed from the ground without an untrained eye.
A call to the Tree Medic is a quick and safe way to find out the overall condition of your storm damaged tree, and learn about all possible solutions.
