The calm after the storm

Made it through a heavy storm? While we're safe and warm in our homes, trees are subjected to vicious winds and heavy snow fall that can cause all kinds of damage. Even if the tree is still standing after the storm, it may well need immediate work.

Damaged trees can pose a threat to people, as heavy branches could fall at any moment. The tree itself can suffer, too; if the damage is not repaired quickly, the tree could become diseased. Cutting off the damaged parts now could save it in the long run and is legally required under a home owner's duty of care.

Unsure whether to call us?

If you're not an expert, it's not always easy to spot problems. A broken branch may be obvious, but a tree that's been strained and stressed by the storm can be harder to spot.

So call out an expert. We'll inspect the tree for you, including looking at the surrounding ground to see if the tree has become unstable due to root damage.

What kind of storm damage requires immediate work?

  • A split in the tree, which can cause a large wound and greater damage in the future
  • Damaged/partially fallen branches
  • Trees leaning at unusual angles
  • A tree, or part of the tree, leaning or falling into a road
