How Do I Save a Storm-Damaged Tree?
As a responsible homeowner, have you ever lived through the heartbreak of having your carefully nurtured trees damaged by stormy weather or heavy winds?
If you find broken branches in your garden after a stormy night, it's important to get in contact with a fully qualified tree surgeon for an evaluation to avoid any future accidents from unsafe branches.
Evaluating Storm Damaged Trees
When extremes of weather cause storm-damaged trees on your property, an arborist can control and manage the damage. Trained arborists can even restore trees with major cosmetic and structural damage.
The repair and restoration options range from non-invasive minimal pruning to major restorations, crown reduction and- if absolutely necessary- tree removal.
Arborist help to prevent a vicious cycle of further tree damage. They will ensure that holes in your tree caused by damaged branches don't overexpose your tree the next time a storm hits.
Preventative Maintenance for Trees
Most importantly, homeowners should be aware of the preventive maintenance necessary to minimise storm damage to their trees. Pruning should be properly performed and correctly timed; don't overprune in the season when your tree requires additional strength.
When you are pruning, you should only use quality pruning shears and other pruning tools, or enlist the help of a professional tree surgeon. Maintaining your tree before bad weather hits can greatly reduced tree maintenance cost in the long run, as well as improving their strength in a storm.
