Post-Hurricane Tree Maintenance
If you have read through our pre-hurricane tree maintenance page you are probably wondering why we offer this service if we believe so strongly that with proper pre-care things are going to be alright. At the end of the day though the best thing that we can do is to try and minimize the damage. That does not mean that you are not going to have some debris on your property after a hurricane. If you want to make sure that your trees and plants can get back to tip-top shape after a storm be sure to give us a call or contact us!
The first thing that we are going to want to do after we arrive at your property the day after the storm is to remove all of the debris. By that, we mean basically the debris that is already on the ground or in your roof. Removing debris from your roof is very important to make sure we help you avoid all sorts of roofing issues. We are going to bag all of those things up and then we are going to proceed with the rest of the process. We do this so that in a sense we can clear the area then think.
Assessing the Damages
Now that we have cleared the area we can think. What are we going to be thinking about? Well, this one is pretty simple. We are going to want to take a look at all of the trees and plants on your property. If you have a tree that basically has a loose branch then we are going to want to asses the situation. Especially if we are expecting more storms to be coming in the same season. This is really where we are going to begin to remove all of the dead nature that could still be hanging on.
We mention this in the pre-hurricane page. The idea is to be able to control the amount of damage that can be done to the property. It is a lot like those buildings that are detonated to make sure that they don’t fall over when they are too old. The same concept applies here. If we believe that the storm has put the tree in a position where it could potentially fall over and cause more damages the best thing that we are going to be able to do is to have it removed.
As people who work with trees and plants on a daily basis, we are very much concerned with the current state of the planet. The last thing that we are going to want to do is to have trees and plants removed left and right. If there is a chance that we can save a tree we are willing to try. The best way to do that is to actually apply tree braces and cables to the tree to make sure that we help it stay up right.
