What to do after severe Storm damage?
Severe weather can have a lasting impact on your home and its surrounding landscape. Tearing winds and penetrating rains work together, softening soils and overturning trees. Lightning strikes generate heat that vaporizes water within the tree causing wood to split, and bark to explode. Heavy snow and ice may bring limbs and power lines down, leaving you without power, and potentially damaging nearby structures or vehicles. During a storm, the failure of part or all of one mature tree may cause significant damage to a property. What do you do after a storm damages your tree? How can you respond safely and quickly – getting your life back in order in a timely manner?
