Storm proofing

A tree is never in greater danger than during a storm. That can mean a threat from pounding rain and hail, from the fury of the wind, from the scorch of lightning, or the weight of ice on branches and leaves. You may also have to remove a tree that endangers life and property during or after a storm.

Prevent ice and snow damage

Brittle tree species normally take the majority of heavy icing after a winter storm. Many of the elms, most poplars, silver maples, birches, willows, and hack-berries are tree species that simply cannot handle the weight of the ice slurry coating limbs. Learn how to select and manage trees to withstand ice and snow.

Winterize your trees

In the fall, trees are beginning their dormant phase. Trees may seem to be inactive but the fact is they need to be winterized. This means they must be protected, cared for and remain healthy. It is important to keep your trees free from insects and diseases. If you do this, your trees will have a much longer, much healthier life.
