The blizzard/windstorm on March 13th caused
damage to many trees in our community—including the 80 foot pine in our front yard.
We watched from the window as it was slowly
uprooted over a 2 minute period and finally came to rest on one of our gigantic elm trees. Thankfully (and miraculously), it did not damage any property—nor the old elm.
The next week was busy obtaining estimates and having the tree removed. Your trees may appear to have weathered the storm, but if they are located in an area where your home, fencing, vehicles etc. could be damaged, it would be wise to inspect them and call in an arborist if you suspect problems. You don’t want the next storm to uproot your tree or result in large branches breaking off.
