If you thought the hurricane season was over, think again — it’s not. Hurricane Dorian shocked the world by destroying the Bahamas in what was the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. But guess what? The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season will remain active until November 30th. As the leading tree removal service near Mount Laurel, NJ, and the surrounding areas, Big Timber Tree Service remembers how devastating Hurricane Sandy was back in 2012.
How to Prepare Trees for a Severe Storm
To prepare trees for a storm, there are a few precautionary measures we can take to ensure that they do not sustain irreversible damage from the intense winds, and to prevent loose limbs from flying through your windows. Here are a few tips to help you prep your trees for severely stormy weather:
- Properly Prune Small Tree Branches
Make sure you do not cut branches flush to the stem, but make sure you cut enough so that big stubs are left behind to rot. Big Timber Tree Service, the most elite tree trimming service Cherry Hill, can help you with all of your pruning and trimming needs.
- Remove Rubbing & Broken Branches
Tree limbs that are rubbing against other branches, your home, or any other nearby structures should be cut down or trimmed properly if possible. Big Timber Tree Service can take care of that for you if you don’t have the resources needed to get the job done.
- Remove Dead Trees
We know that it’s hard to say goodbye to those elder trees that have been on your property for years — perhaps you or your children grew up with those trees. But when they start to rot from the inside out as their branches fall and disintegrate into the earth, decomposing into soil, it’s best to say goodbye before a storm knocks the tree down onto your property or into your home.
At Big Timber Tree Service, we have the resources, skills, and experience needed to handle all of your tree trimming and tree removal needs. We will help you remove dying and dead trees — properly — before a vicious storm can get to them first. If anyone is going to put your dying trees to sleep, it should be you, not a ruthless storm.
