During stormy weather, particularly in high winds, trees can become hazardous. It is common for boughs, branches and stems to fail in such times. Trees suffering from diseases and decay become vulnerable, especially those with root decay.
DB Tree Care offers an emergency call out service in times of need when trees have fallen, branches are broken or hanging or the root plate is showing signs of movement.
If you have concerns about the condition of your trees, please call, as all of our advice and quotations are free of charge.
There are many different reasons why trees fail, and even the healthiest of trees can fail in stormy conditions. However, trees suffering from diseases and trees displaying structural and physiological defects, should be checked and inspected by a professional to determine the potential hazard that the pose. Having regular tree inspections in high target areas (roads, footpaths, buildings, or close to the public), could prevent future failure and preventative measures can be put into place to reduce these risks.
