Storm Damage Cleanup
Fast and Efficient Storm Damage Cleanup
When disaster strikes, we're here to help!
Northeastern weather can wreak havoc on trees, and even the healthiest of trees can be susceptible to damage. Trees with structural issues can fall year-round, and it doesn’t always take severe storms for a tree to fail, sometimes even moderately strong winds can cause issues. For the past 35 years we have been helping local property owners safely and quickly clean up storm damage from their homes and properties.
Storm Damage Cleanup Service Overview
During a storm, trees are vulnerable to various types of damage, including broken branches, uprooting, and splitting of the trunk. While unhealthy or weak trees are more susceptible to storm damage, even healthy trees may experience damage and fail due to structural integrity issues. For example, trees with deep cracks, decayed wood, or weak branches are at a higher risk of breaking or falling during a storm. Additionally, trees that have been previously damaged or have been improperly pruned may also be at an increased risk of storm damage. When a storm strikes, our team is ready to respond quickly and efficiently to help you mitigate the damage and prevent any further risks.
Reasons Trees May Experience Structural Failure
Understanding the common causes of tree failure and damage during storms
Strong winds can cause trees to sway and bend, putting stress on their branches and trunks and potentially leading to damage or failure. Trees with underlying structural issues are more susceptible to failure during windy conditions.
Ice and Snow
The weight of heavy snow can accumulate on a tree’s branches, causing even healthy branches to bend and potentially break under the added pressure.
Soil erosion can weaken a tree’s root system and destabilize its foundation, making it more susceptible to falling over during a storm or high winds.
Internal rot can weaken a tree’s structural integrity, causing it to become unstable and increasing the risk of failure, particularly during high winds or storms.
Excessive lean can cause a tree’s weight distribution to become unbalanced, putting stress on its roots and increasing the risk of failure, particularly during high winds or storms.
The tree’s canopy can sometimes become irregular due to competition or poor pruning. In strong winds, this imbalance can twist and stress the branches and trunk.
