The condition of your landscape has a significant impact on the value of your home – some estimate upwards of 15%. This means, every strong storm brings with it the chance that a large percentage of your home’s value could be compromised.
Did you know…most trees that fall during a storm could have been identified as hazardous if they had been properly evaluated beforehand?
The best way to protect the value of your home and your arboricultural assets from storm damage is through proper year-round tree care. This will help prevent many avoidable situations, protect your investment and save you the cost and trouble of cleanup and repairs.
Although it’s difficult to protect trees from extreme weather conditions, there are effective precautions you and your arborist can take to minimize the impact.
Extreme weather conditions can wreak havoc on your trees and shrubs. For example, the combination of hot, dry weather can lead to water loss – causing stress. Or, freezing, damp conditions, if abruptly following mild weather, can cause significant stress to even the hardiest of species. Although you can’t prevent these conditions from occurring, there are precautions you can take to help safeguard your trees.
The following are a few weather conditions that can seriously impact your trees and tips to help you overcome their affects.
