New York’s winter storms can be severe; prepare for winter storm damage in Westchester County with help from Westchester Tree Life!
Winter storm damage in Westchester County can leave a lasting impact on your home and property. From strong winds to heavy snow and ice, winter storm damage can uproot trees, split branches and more. What should you do once storm damage strikes? Follow these 4 easy-to-remember steps:
- Visually Assess the Damage – Are the major limbs still remaining and the trunk unbroken? Are at least 50 percent of the tree’s branches intact? If you have answered yes to either of these, there is a good chance for recovery.
- Take Safety Precautions – Realize the serious potential dangers of storm damage. For example, take the possibility of storm damaged trees touching live electrical wires, which can result in electrocution. Broken or dangling limbs may result in overhead death, trees and limbs under tension may react unexpectedly when cut. All of these scenarios and more are vital when reviewing storm damage.
