Hurricane Preparedness Week

Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 5-11, 2024! As hurricane season approaches, it's important to prepare your trees to minimize potential damage to your property and to ensure the safety of your family. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Prune dead or weak branches: Dead or weak branches can easily break during high winds and cause damage to your property or injury to people. Pruning these branches before the storm hits can help reduce the risk of damage.
  2. Thin out dense canopies: Trees with dense canopies are more susceptible to wind damage. Thinning out the canopy by removing some of the branches can help reduce the wind resistance and make the tree more resilient.
  3. Remove hazardous trees: If you have trees that are in poor health or are located close to your home or power lines, it may be best to have them removed before the storm hits to prevent potential damage.
  4. Keep trees well-watered: Trees that are well-hydrated are stronger and more resilient to extreme weather conditions. Make sure to water your trees regularly, especially during dry periods.
  5. Consult with a professional: If you are unsure about the health of your trees or need help with tree maintenance, consider consulting with a professional. We can assess the health of your trees, recommend necessary measures, and help with pruning or removal if needed.

By taking these steps, you can help ensure the safety of your property and loved ones during hurricane season. Remember to always prioritize safety and seek professional help if necessary.
