There are times that the weather will bring in winds and other elements that can end up causing some damage. There are some things that are more susceptible to these high winds and heavy rain. One thing that most people know can be damaged during a storm is their trees. If you have cared for your trees and made sure that they have been trimmed and pruned when needed they should be in good shape. Even if you are the best when it comes to tree care your tree can be damaged or uprooted if the storm is bad enough. If you are stuck in a position that your tree has fallen during one of these storms you want to know the best way to deal with it. A downed tree can be very dangerous especially if it has fallen near an electrical pole, car or home.
Milam’s Tree Service Outlines Steps to Take for a Broken Tree Trunk or Branches
What Trees are Split or Damaged?: The first thing you need to assess is which tree has been damaged. You want to be careful when checking because there can be trees that are damaged but not fully down. These are all trees that need to be listed as damaged so you can care for them. You also want to make sure that you do your assessment when the weather is better and you can use caution when taking your survey. You can check for large limbs that have been damaged all the way to trees that are uprooted or broken at the trunk.
Do the Trees Pose a Hazard?: The other part of your inspection and survey is to find out where the trees are downed at. The location of the tree is going to determine how they need to be treated. Some of the things that you want to look at when checking on your trees is if they are down near any electrical lines that might be live. You also want to know if the tree is leaning or laying on top of any structure such as a house, shed, other tree or car. If the tree is in any of these positions you want to use extreme caution when dealing with these issues.
Uses for Fallen & Dead Trees: When you have a tree that has fallen down it can be a sad day. We all plant our trees to have in our yard for years and years. When a tree comes down earlier then you might expect there are still some benefits. You can use parts of the tree chopped into pieces and dried out to use for firewood. You can also have the tree chipped so that it can be utilized in your landscaping.
