Remove or trim dead or damaged trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a severe thunderstorm.
You can check with your local city government about any guidelines or required consent applications and contact a qualified (and insured) arborist or tree surgeon for advice, if necessary.
Try to have a qualified arborist inspect trees every two to three years to identify any preventative action necessary. A major cause of tree failure is root damage, so be careful when digging or excavating around trees.
Tree branches touching your home can remove the important protective coating on your roof shingles reducing the quality of your roof. Branches can also provide a pathway to insects onto your property causing more damage.
Don't forget to park your car away from trees if strong winds and severe storms are predicted.
