Summer is around the corner, and most of us can’t wait to host the summer parties and BBQs. However, the summer also means the season for high winds and storms, especially here in Buckeye; they are not forgiving.
We’ve witnessed falling, properties getting damaged, and sometimes, mobile homes being flipped.
So, with summer rolling up, it’s essential to be prepared, which means storm-proofing your trees and reducing the risk of property damage in a storm.
Here are some simple tips on how to stormproof your trees:
Tree branches cause the most damage when it comes to tree damage from high winds and storms. So, if your tree is heavy with canopy, or has some dead or dying branches, now would be an excellent time to prune the branches.
Sometimes a problem or defect with your tree may not be so apparent. That is why it is vital to have a professional inspect your trees for any signs of damage, disease, or other weak points and recommend the best action necessary to prevent the tree from falling in a high wind situation.
- Protect the younger trees
If you have younger trees in your yard, they are likely to be uprooted in a storm. To keep them safe, you can stake them for additional stability or cover them using a tree cover until the season passes.
- Mulching also helps
Storms can weaken your tree’s root systems badly. So, how about you mulch to help hold the roots down and protect against high winds.
