With Snowfall Looming, Stein Advises Residents to Be Prepared for Tree Damage and Storm Clean Up

Posted on November 30, 2018

In 2017, we had two major winter storms bearing down on us, and the 2018 winter is already upon us. Though we may avoid getting snow from Bruce, residents should be prepared for winter weather. Heavy snow or ice precipitation, and windy storms could cause vulnerable trees to fall, or branches to be blown off of trees. These events present a danger to people and property. Before storm clean up becomes a necessity, residents still have time to get trees inspected, and to have any that are deemed threats, especially those overhanging structures or power lines, removed.


Winter Is a Good Time for Tree Inspection and Removal

Pruning and tree removal  are often performed during the fall season but when trees are dormant and have no leaves in the winter, arborists and other tree care specialists can more easily identify threats, like areas of rot or dead branches. Thinning of tree branches can reduce wind resistance so that when storms come through, the wind can pass through the trees with less risk of damage. 

TreeFALL Program helps When Storm Clean Up is Needed

Storm clean up is simple when all you need to do is pick up dead branches that have fallen, but if those branches fall onto structures, is a lot more complicated. Insurance will usually only cover damaged structures, and sometimes this means that they only cover part of your actual expense.

Stein Tree Service’s TreeFall Program can help homeowners in this situation . This program can save you thousands of dollars if storm clean up is required.
