Hurricane season is coming and what you can do to prepare:

Remove Dead or Potentially Harmful Trees

Hurricane season is here! Are you and your trees ready?

One of the best things you can do to prepare for hurricane season is to have an evaluation done on your trees to see if any appear to be dead or dying, which could lead to a potentially hazardous situation. In many instances, a qualified tree service company would be able to look at your property and tell you if they see any potential problems in any of your trees and if tree removal is warranted. Although, you should be aware that trees in some instances may look healthy on the outside, but actually are diseased and weak on the inside. In those cases, nothing can be done to prepare them.

Cleanup Any Loose Debris

A critical aspect of hurricane preparation is to make sure that any loose debris is cleaned up and properly disposed of. Fallen limbs, container plants, hanging baskets, yard tools, toys, barbecue pits, trash cans etc. are all very common items that many people have that need to be stored immediately prior to a storm. Anything that is not tied down or put away has the potential to become a deadly projectile that could cause serious damage to a person or your home. 

Trimming Dead Branches or Low Hanging Limbs

The very first thing we usually see in properties that need to be tended to in preparation for a large storm, is tree trimming. During heavy Florida storms, the first thing to typically cause damage are lower hanging limbs. Being that they are susceptible to high winds, it can often cause them to break off and cause damage to your property. We always recommend that this be one of the first steps to take in preparing for any potentially damaging storm. 

Insider Tip: If you mow your lawn prior to a storm hitting, shorter grass makes for easier debris clean up.
