Despite the continuing snow and cold weather, spring is here – at least in theory. Before you know it we will all be out enjoying our landscapes, gardening, playing with the kids and barbecuing.
So, with all this in mind, it’s time to make sure your landscape is safe after all that winter has thrown at us. With all the heavy snowfall, ice, bitter cold and winds from this record setting winter there are many hazardous situations that can result from winter tree damage.
We always tell clients to look up and assess your trees before the leaves come in so you can see potential hazards.
Things to look for include:
- Dead branches
- Hanging limbs
- Bent limbs from excessive snow loads
- Splits or cracks in limbs or branches
- Deer or rodent damage on trunks
For more details, as well as pictures of what to look for, visit our page on Identifying Hazardous Trees.
We find that homeowners don’t usually see a good portion of these potential hazards, even when they’re looking for them.
So here at Barts Tree Service we always offers a free risk assessment of your yard from a certified arborist. These trained professionals can point out any of these hazardous situations, describe the associated risks and explain all possible remedies to mitigate those risks.
