Tree Protection Against Winter Storms
Trees are beautiful, majestic objects of nature. Unfortunately when a winter storm hits, they can be weapons of mass destruction. You’ve probably seen images in the newspaper or on tv of trees that have fallen on cars or homes causing massive amounts of damage. As a home or property owner, you definitely don’t want any trouble with your trees. More often than not, the failure of trees is the result of a lack of care given. This means the trees on your property were either weak to be given, sick, already dead or just hadn’t been maintained properly over the years (pruning).
The problem with snow and ice during the winter is the additional weight. Most of the year, trees go through different weather patterns including mostly rain and wind. When snow and ice sit on trees that are already weak or haven’t been maintained right, the tree’s branches can’t adjust to the additional weight and break. This is what causes trees or large branches to fall during the winter.
