The Aftermath of a Cleveland Heights Storm: Removing Dangerous Trees

Certain weather conditions and recognizing signs of tree removal for Cleveland Heights homeowners helps avoid bad things before they happen. Often times, homeowners fail to notice obvious signs that a tree on the property should be removed or do not think about tree removal until it is too late. If you find large branches across your yard or a splintered branch on the car, no matter what the reason, you will want to remove the tree as soon as possible in case there is more debris or fallout.

Be prepared by getting your trees inspected early on. If you notice any of the following issues, consider consulting a Cleveland Heights tree removal company. An arborist will check to confirm if any of the trees on your property are weak, old, or are already dead and ready for removal. However, even the strongest trees are susceptible to breakage and damage under certain heavy weather conditions.

Windstorms and rainstorms are the most common causes of tree damage. A downpour or flooding on your property can carry away the sediment to expose the tree’s root system. If this occurs and a tree’s anchoring root system lacks sediment to grip onto, the tree could topple. Alternatively, heavy ice and snowfall tend to add a lot of extra weight to tree branches and may split or break boughs. After a storm passes, check the trees around your property for damage or indications of tree abnormalities such as: exposed roots, splintering, splitting, several broken or fallen branches, or a snapped tree.

It is not uncommon to see large branches spread across the yard or part of a tree toppled or leaning on electrical wires after a heavy storm. While the newly separated pieces that caused visible damage are the priority, the rest of the tree may still need to be removed. Although it is okay for trees to lose a few branches, there are certain situations where missing more than a few can lead to rapid decline.

If you notice any of these issues after a storm has calmed, consider a consultation from a tree removal company. Our team at VanCuren Tree Care is fully trained to evaluate and make a recommendation on removal of any dangerous trees around your Cleveland Heights home.
