3 Steps to take after your tree has suffered storm damage:
- Assess the situation - if the tree looks intimidating, don't risk it. Tree work is the number 1 deadliest industry in the US today. NEVER go near a tree that is near any electrical or utility cable. Call your utility company immediately and have a Certified Arborist out immediately to assess.
- Determine if it can be Saved - some trees damaged in a storm can be saved. A good rule of thumb is if a healthy tree has 50% of the canopy intact, then it can probably be restored, however will probably need a lot of canopy restoration to prevent future breaking. Call in a Professional Certified Arborist to make the best decision regarding your "green pets," and come up with a Comprehensive Tree Management Plan.
- Follow the Plan - severely damaged trees will often be slow to recover, and it may seem like the fertilization or other treatment that your Certified Arborist prescribes is not working. Hold on, and remember that with your Comprehensive Tree Management Plan, that your tree will be monitored and adjusted as needed to best care for the tree.
