Weather Emergencies and Colorado TreesNicole Sabilia
Weather emergencies and other extreme weather events are commonplace in Colorado’s front range. In this case, the Colorado Trees crew is here to help resolve tree-related weather emergency calls.
Although Colorado’s deciduous trees go dormant for the winter, they are still susceptible to damage via extreme weather. Fluctuating temperatures, swift temperature drops, and low soil moisture are weather emergencies which influence your tree’s vulnerability to damage.
Property owners can decrease tree susceptibility to illness, injury, and death in the case of winter weather emergencies via preventative maintenance. Thus, decrease your risk of tree damage or property damage during a weather emergency by keeping soil moist in the fall, and making sure limbs are pruned regularly.
If you weren’t able to do your yearly maintenance and your tree gets hit by the heavy snows, a certified arborist from Colorado Trees is happy to help set your trees straight. We mitigate this damage through trimming or removal of hazardous trees or their limbs.
After a snow or ice storm, there are some questions you can ask to see if you need our help:
- Has the tree lost any portion of its canopy?
- Does the tree have any broken limbs or branches?
- Are there cracks in the wood?
- Is the tree leaning?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, please get in touch with us.
This means your tree is likely damaged, and we’ll need to come trim or remove parts of it. Broken trees as a result of weather emergencies are hazardous. They have the potential to harm people and property if not taken care of swiftly.
With Colorado Trees, the winter season is a fantastic time for removing trees that could become a problem if not dealt with. We offer discounted pricing on all trims and removals during the winter. So give us a call!
