With Hurricane Joaquin heading towards Maryland this weekend, now is a great time to review the trees on your property in Parkton and make sure you are prepared for the worst. Although your Parkton trees might seem strong enough to hold up to the forces of a major storm, sometimes there is internal damage that only a tree expert would be able to pick out. Or maybe your tree has been looking a little wobbly for a while now and you’ve just been putting off having it removed.
Now is the time – you need to be prepared for any storm, as they all have the potential to break off tree limbs and even knock them down into your home or car. Keep reading to see how to prevent damage to your Parkton trees during this weekend’s hurricane:
Before the Storm Hits
Take some time to walk around your Parkton property and inspect your trees yourself. Look for the following signs of injured or diseased trees that will be susceptible to coming down during the storm:
- Cracks in the trunk or limbs
- Branches leaning too close to your home’s roof
- Branches too close to utility lines
- Trees that are leaning significantly
- Decaying, hollow, or aged trees
If you spot any of these signs or anything else that looks out of the ordinary, it’s time to call Porter Tree Services. We will take the appropriate measures to prevent damage from happening to your home in Parkton, saving you a giant headache in storm clean-up.
After the Storm
Once you’re sure it’s safe to venture outside, do a re-check of your trees. Did any break or fall? Are any touching power lines or your home? Never try to clean up significant tree damage yourself, especially when power lines are involved. Porter Tree Services offers 24/7 emergency tree services in the unfortunate case one of your trees succumbs to Hurricane Joaquin. Be safe this weekend, everyone!
