How to Inspect Trees After a Storm
It is important to inspect your exterior and landscaping after a strong storm passes through Clearwater. Damage caused by a storm must be addressed as soon as possible. Particularly if the situation becomes hazardous.
These three steps will assist you in inspecting trees and cleaning up after a storm.
#1: Check for damage to branches: Take a look at each branch as you stand at the base of every tree in your yard. To get a better view of the top branches, use a stepladder. Broken branches need to be removed or repaired.
#2: Clear away fallen debris. Strong winds can cause branches, sticks and leaves to collect in your yard. Do your best to identify the source of debris as you clean up. This will help you to determine the extent of damage.
#3: Check for flooding. Heavy rainfall can cause more damage than your home. Your trees’ root systems may also be affected. Although most trees can tolerate soggy soil, poor drainage can lead to water accumulation and drowning. Dig a temporary ditch if you see water pooling around your tree. After the ground dries out, you can install a drainage system or adjust the soil’s grade.
