How Do You Know If Your Property Is Safe After a Severe Storm?
February 19, 2020
A booming thunderstorm or blizzard can be humbling to experience. And even after a severe storm has passed, hazardous conditions may still be present throughout your property — especially if you have a lot of large trees on your lawn. For example, dead leaves, fallen tree branches, and miscellaneous debris may blanket your lawn after a storm, or even worse, trees may become uprooted by winds or completely fall over, potentially putting your home and your family at risk. Luckily, the experts at Above All Tree Service are available to help! Check out the video below to see why contacting a professional for tree removal services is important, and then continue reading below as we discuss three tree-related warning signs after a storm. Also, be sure to let us know if you need help with storm damage cleanup near Yardley, PA, and the surrounding communities.
3 Warning Signs to Look Out for After a Storm
At Least One Tree Is Leaning
If you notice that a tree on your property is suddenly leaning over a bit after a storm— even only slightly — you may have a very dangerous situation on your hands. If that tree is leaning towards any part of your house or any parts of your property that people frequently walk on, you and your family could be at risk. If there are trees leaning towards power lines, now you are dealing with a fire hazard. Call us for help inspecting any trees on your property that are suspiciously leaning.
Cracks on Trees With Multiple Trunks
Trees with multiple trunks that connect in a V-shaped or U-shaped formation are prone to breaking and falling over. After a storm with heavy winds, the spot where each of the tree’s trunks come together may be weaker and more likely to split — especially if the tree is relatively old. If you have any trees like this on your property, and you notice deep cracks that extend through the trunk, call us to inspect them to ensure that your home and family are safe.
Trees With Lightning Damage
Have you ever seen a tree get struck by lightning? After the storm subsides, you’ll notice scorch marks, massive cracks, and limbs that have fallen. Even if the tree looks completely fine, there may be damage that you are unable to detect; trees that have been struck by lightning may be dead, which means they are at risk of falling onto your home or property. The experts at All The Above Tree Service can come and inspect the damage for you if you want to feel safe.
