Any storm can wreak havoc along their way. After assessing the damage to your home, it is important to assess the damage done to trees around the property.
When to Assess Your Trees
Of course, family and home are the most important things to consider after the storm. When a life-threatening situation has been resolved and is safe to be outside, only then you have to walk around and survey the damage.
If there is any tree that has to be removed, you should call a tree removal expert for it. Much of the damage can be covered or at least partially covered by your homeowner's insurance. Many times insurer has to survey the damage before repairs are carried out, so do not forget to contact your insurance agent as soon as the storm damage occurred.
What to look for
Broken branches and twigs on the ground that are easy to see and remove. The first concern should be the area around the house and access road. Never touch the branches that have come into contact or are surrounded by power lines. Due to the activity in question and the power cord is very dangerous, always call a professional to take care of the situation.
While walking around surveying the damage at eye level and on the ground, it is important to remember to look into the tree to observe the damage at the top of your head that can lead to future injury or danger.
Remove all limbs have been damaged and pose a threat to trees or surrounding structures, and prune branches that had been broken but still attached to the tree.
