Trees and Tornadoes
Tree Branches Become Debris in a Tornado
We love to have our tall leafy trees in our yards to keep our house cool during the summer heat. The shade they provide is wonderful when the sun is high in the sky.
These same trees we love can also be very harmful during a storm or tornado if they are not trimmed regularly. Strengthening the trees around your property can help keep their limbs from being torn off and becoming debris in a storm. Here is what to look for when trimming trees around your home:
- Limbs with wounds
- Decaying branches
- Structural defects
- Limbs rubbing against each other
- Exposed roots
If your trees are trimmed properly before the stormy season they will be less likely to become debris. Many homes can be destroyed by tornadoes in our servicing area if a tornado would arise.
