Storms: Often a Challenge For Trees
Many residents of the Greater Fort Worth Area value the beauty and shade provided by trees. Flowering trees in this area supply spectacular Spring and Summer foliage.
Texans also appreciate the elegant appearance of Evergreens, endowed with rich green or blue colors even during the height of winter! Or perhaps you prefer the mighty stance of a towering Pecan or Oak tree?
Regardless of your favorites, you probably value the qualities all these wonderful additions contribute to your yard and grounds!
Although every tree holds the potential to bring joy to people, caring for storm-damaged trees in a yard sometimes becomes challenging.
Xtreme Lawn Care has created a list you can use to help check your trees after a bad storm. During the past 12 months, the Lone Star State sustained especially destructive weather systems in many places.
We hope this storm-damaged trees checklist makes it easier for your household to evaluate the condition and needs of the trees in your yard. (You may wish to keep it available to use the next time you inspect your trees.)
Some Preliminary Considerations
Remember, if you discover problems during your inspection, don’t panic! You can always obtain skilled tree care assistance. Particularly if you own mature trees, you’ll usually make a wise decision by requesting expert storm-damaged tree removal or trimming.
Use This Helpful Checklist to Check Your Trees For Storm Damage
Review The Condition of Your Yard
We suggest property owners take the time to inspect the entire yard after a storm with safety in mind. You may find it helpful to take along a tablet or notebook and make notes to remind yourself about issues requiring attention.
Fallen Branches, Leaves, And Dead Wood
As a preliminary matter, you’ll want to restore the condition of the lawn by picking up or removing fallen branches and leaves and noting dead or fallen trees. Sometimes lightning strikes kill trees. If the areas sustained a particularly bad storm, also remain alert to the presence of any downed electrical lines, broken glass, and other hazards during your inspection.
Conduct a Careful Tree-by-Tree Inspection
It helps to evaluate the condition of every tree in the yard. Check storm-damaged trees closely for broken branches.
Obtain Tree Removal if Necessary
Arrange for storm damage tree removal as soon as possible. Dead trees may fall over suddenly and cause injuries to people or nearby structures.
Optimize Tree Growth Conditions
After a storm, pay especially close attention to the condition of young trees. They may benefit from staking to correct trunk defects caused by heavy winds.
Perform Skilled Pruning
Prune broken and dead branches carefully.
Consider New Tree Planting
