Storm Damage Removals and Preventing Them
Storm damage to trees can be extremely dangerous. Trees are large and heavy, and if they come crashing down suddenly they can wreck cars and houses, cause injuries, and even lead to loss of life. During a bad storm the wind, rain and lightning strikes can lead to broken boughs and branches, split trunks, and even the uprooting of an entire tree.
Help is at hand, however. Our professional arborists in Brisbane can deal with storm-damaged trees quickly and effectively, making them safe. Also, we can take preventative measures against storm damage. We can use tree surgery techniques to make your trees more storm resistant.
Dealing with storm-damaged trees
If a tree does become unsafe during or after a storm, we can attend and make it safe. This could involve removing the damaged branches, thinning the canopy, or bracing and cabling splits in the tree. In some circumstances where the damage is severe or the tree poses a big risk, we may recommend tree removal.
With tree removals, we make sure that the tree is felled and broken down safely. We even remove the stump. All of the trees will be sent for recycling, so there is no waste. If you would like to replace the lost tree with a new sapling, we can discuss your planting options with you.
Preventing storm damage to trees
If a tree does fall, it can cause serious and expensive damage. It is a very good idea to make sure your trees are ready for a storm, long before one arrives. Tree surgery treatments like crown reductions and branch thinning can make a tree less likely to succumb to a storm. Finally, supporting a tree with braces and cables can also ensure that it stands tall through the wind and rain.
Every tree is different, and our experts understand what is needed to protect and preserve these trees. We have the right equipment, training and knowledge to keep your trees safe. Above all, protecting you and your family or your business in the process. We will come and assess the tree, and make recommendations for tree care action so that you are prepared for any future bad weather.
