Take action now to protect your property!
Over the years growing trees will become heavier, making them prone to the sail effect, which increases their chance of failure. This means that power lines, homes and other structures that might not have been threatened a few years ago might now be under threat by a tree that has grown and become a fall hazard. Preparing trees for natural disasters is a must and should be done in advance of storm season.
Some warning signs of possibly hazardous trees include:
Branches too close to house, carport or other structures.
Wires too close or in contact with tree branches. Trees have to potential to become energized when they are contacted by electric wires.
Dead or partially attached limbs or peeling bark may indicate structural weakness.
Cracked stems or branches, especially at tree forks.
Hollow or decayed areas on the trunk or main limbs. Mushrooms growing from the bark may also indicate decay and structural weakness.
Heaving soil at the tree base is a potential indicator of an unsound root system.
