In the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine, looming tree risks may lay hidden.
Look for leaning trees whose root systems may be compromised or shifted in the ground. Pay attention to broken or hanging overhead limbs. Consider important areas or targets the tree may hit should it fall, like the house, driveway, kids’ play area and roadways.
Most importantly, be aware of the trees surrounding your home and your neighbors’ homes. Always consult with a certified arborist who can tell you the best next steps. Visit here for more homeowner information on trees, including how to manage tree hazards and risks.
