6 Tips on Checking Your Trees Before & After Storm Damage
1) Check the roots in a circle about 10 feet around the trunk. If the root system is lifting up on one side or the other, that’s a sign that there has been some root damage. Heavy rainfall has waterlogged the soil. If that's happening, call an arborist quickly.
2) Check the base of a tree for mushrooms or for cavities in the trunk. Both are signs that the tree might be dying from the inside.
3) Long vertical cracks, a splitting tree trunk is another warning sign of imminent problems. These trees should be dealt with immediately to prevent them from falling on something — or someone.
4) Are there dead branches? If so, they should be removed.
5) Heavy canopies of leaves catch more wind during storms. They should be thinned to allow gales to pass through.
6) Big branches that are crowded too close together may form a weak union that won’t support both limbs. A ‘U’-shaped crotch where the branches come together signals a relatively strong branch union. What you don’t want to see is a V-shaped crotch with a seam running down it.
Storm damage can often be predicted by weather service companies and the local news. Make sure you take this information seriously if there is a big hurricane and/or impending storm heading towards your home or business. Area-wide storm damage which can be covered by insurance could be much more difficult to deal with than a normal insurance claim because of the potential of an area-wide disaster. Protect your home for the upcoming storm to help minimize the storm damage the best you can, this may relief more headaches and pain than if you had a lot of storm damage hit your home.
