Safe Response to Tree-Related Storm Damage
Devastating storms and natural disasters can leave you reeling and at a loss of how to begin recovery. Whether you are a city forester acting as a first responder or a landowner checking your property months later, the first step is always safety. It is a common occurrence that people survive storms and natural disasters only to be injured while cleaning up afterward. Be as safe as possible while dealing with damaged and fallen trees.
Storms often leave trees looking bare and deflated—but these looks can be deceiving. Trees have an uncanny ability to recover from storm damage. Before assuming your trees are lost, give them a quick assessment. A tree professional may be needed to help you decide what to do. Don’t hire just anyone who shows up at your door after a storm; hire an ISA Certified Arborist.
