Do you need tree removal before hurricane season? Signs that a tree on your property won’t make it past the storms.

Having a decaying tree come down on your property in a hurricane is a homeowner’s nightmare, which is why tree removal before hurricane season is such an important possibility to consider. If a tree on your property is displaying signs of disease or decay, the safest course of action is to consult with a professional about how to rehabilitate it in time for hurricane season or, if that’s not possible, how to safely and efficiently remove it. Today, we’re going over some of the major signs that you’ll need tree removal before hurricane season, along with how to choose a property maintenance professional you can trust to take care of it. Let’s get started.

Tree Health and Hurricanes

Tree removal is a last-resort option, but it is unfortunately sometimes the only option that’s left. When a tree is dead and decaying, it can cause damage to other plants around your property if it is not removed. Of course, the hazards don’t stop there: decaying trees simply do not have the structural stability it takes to withstand hurricane-level winds. If left unchecked, diseased or dead trees can easily be brought down by a hurricane, causing potentially devastating damage to a property or home. Don’t worry: with attentiveness and proper property care, this is highly unlikely – and we’re here to help you make sure you’re covered.

Signs to Watch Out For

Vigilance is key if you want to keep your property in the best possible shape. Before hurricane season is well underway, do a walk-through of your property and conduct a health check on your trees and shrubs. Be on the lookout for any of the following in your trees:

  • Gray, flaky roots or tree bark
  • Deep scratches or gouges in tree bark
  • Mushroom growth on or around a tree’s roots
  • Patches of empty branches, especially around the crown of a tree
  • A bent or otherwise crooked tree trunk
  • A total absence of any bugs or birds on a tree where there used to be a normal amount of them

If you notice any of the signs above, be sure to call in a property maintenance professional, as it’s possible that your tree could be diseased or decayed. Don’t worry: if you’re proactive about inspecting your property, you’ll have plenty of time to come up with a plan alongside your property maintenance professional to ensure that your property and home remain safe.

Care For Your Healthy Trees

If you take a look around your property only to find that your trees look perfectly healthy, that’s fantastic – and there are still some steps you can take to make sure that they’re extra fortified for hurricane season. If it’s been a couple of years since the last time your trees were pruned, it’s a great idea to call a professional and arrange that now, before hurricane season is in full swing. Tree pruning is ideal at least a few weeks before hurricane season so that any loose branches or twigs can be cleared away with plenty of time to spare without becoming projectile hazards. By arranging for professional tree pruning – and a professional inspection of your property – you’ll help maintain your peace of mind about your property’s health and overall preparedness for storm season.

Tree removal before hurricane season is something no homeowner wants to deal with, but it’s crucial to take care of it before storm season is fully underway.
