Weather can cause a lot of unexpected damage into a property. That is why its so important to keep your trees in check. If you suspect that some branches are not safe it is imperative that you take action in fixing that particular problem.
Taking the time to prune/remove a branch ahead of time can avoid you costly repairs in the future.
"Most damage to a property during severe weather occurs when limbs or trees fall. High winds occurring during thunderstorms can cause tree roots to fail and branches to weaken, resulting in power outages, property damage, and even personal injury. None of this is an easy experience for a homeowner. That is why pre-storm strategies are recommended to identify potentially hazardous conditions and to help reduce the risk of damage before harsh weather occurs."
Hazards are not always obvious! So please make sure to call a local trusted (insured) tree service company to come and check the condition of your property.
